The Good

–Tucker Barnhart was 2-3, the only Red with more than one hit. Billy Hamilton made a great play in center field.

That pretty much covers the “good” from this game.

–(Actually, Blake Wood and Ross Ohlendorf pitched two scoreless innings, and that’s pretty good.)

The Bad

–Reds only got one run on 6 hits. That’s not good.

–Joey Votto struck out three times in four at-bats. Adam Duvall did the same, but at least he had one hit and a run batted in.

Not-So-Random Thoughts

–Miami’s Jose Fernandez is a good pitcher. Did you know that?

–Dan Straily was fine tonight, if not exceptional. Six innings, three runs allowed on six hits. Frankly, I’ll take that.

–If you didn’t see Duvall’s crazy awesome slide into second base in the fourth inning, go find that highlight.

–It occurred to me tonight that Billy Hamilton is my favorite player right now. Tonight, he reached second on a typical ground ball through the infield that was barely bobbled by the right fielder. Later, he made a great catch against the center field fence. He’s just so much fun to watch. Love that guy.

–We aren’t even to the All-Star break, but the Reds are already 23 games under .500. Ugh.

go reds

  1. From ESPN:

    Cincinnati second baseman Brandon Phillips left the game after being hit by a pitch on the left hand in the seventh inning. X-rays revealed a hairline fracture.

    “It wasn’t good enough to stay in the game,” Price said. “It was real sore. We’ll have to see where he is tomorrow with a lot of ice and time to sleep and get the swelling down.”

    Reds: CF Billy Hamilton (right knee) made a leaping catch up against the wall in center field in the fifth inning, but stayed in the game and had ice on his knee after the game. “It’s fine and everything should be good,” Hamilton said.

    • And now the Peraza era can begin peaceably. If/when Cozart gets traded, move Peraza to SS and bring up Shed Long. Playing well and that name is too cool to be left in he minors…
      OR move Suarez to 2B and bring up Curtis for 3B??

      • Peraza at second, Suarez at short, Duvall at third. Phillips on DL or waiver wire. Holt, Hamilton and the guy they got from the Dodgers, who made the opening day roster, but was sent down in the outfield. Bruce and Cozart for the future.
