Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….
Chicago (NL) 2
W: S. LeCure (1-1)
L: C. Coleman (2-8)
–Ramon Hernandez was 2-3 with a 3-run homer, a double, and 2 runs scored. Chris Heisey also had two hits, with a homer and 2 RBI.
–Juan Francisco and Edgar Renteria each had a couple of hits. One of Francisco’s hits was a double.
–Johnny Cueto pitched 3.2 scoreless innings, re-capturing the NL ERA lead, before leaving the game with a strained muscle in the upper right side of his back.
–The Reds got good work from Logan Ondrusek, Nick Masset, and Jose Arredondo.
–None. Reds beat the Cubs!
–Anytime you beat the Cubs, that’s a good night in my book.
–Cueto is going to be examined in Cincinnati tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.
–Reds get a chance to take 3 out of 4 in this series tomorrow. That would make me happy.
