Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….
W: D. Willis (1-6)
L: D. Moskos (1-1)
S: F. Cordero (35)
–Dontrelle Willis finally got his first (only?) win as a Red, going six innings and giving up three runs. Willis also doubled in two runs at the plate and raised his batting average to an even .400. Not bad.
–Jay Bruce had two hits, including a double. Chris Heisey had two hits and a walk. Juan Francisco and Paul Janish also doubled.
–None, I guess. Francisco Cordero had a typical ninth, giving up a hit, a walk, and a run before recording the save.
–Oh yeah, I remember another negative: we still have to suffer through three more games.
–One more series to go, in New York, beginning tomorrow.
