–Joey Votto had four hits, including a double. Keyvius Sampson, of all people, pitched four scoreless innings in relief.

I still think he can be a contributing member of the next good Reds team, but the bullpen might be his eventual destination.
–Bryan Price was ejected, which seemed like the least he could do.
–I don’t know what else to say. This was not a fun game to watch. I guess an appearance by Milton is all that remains:
