–Michael Lorenzen. My goodness. Turn him into Otani. I’m only half kidding. Lorenzen pitched three innings, allowing only one run and hit a home run of his own. Not. Bad. At all.

–Sal Romano. Development pretty much looks like Sal Romano. There are a lot of bumps on the road, but you see some good stuff, too. There’s promise here, at least.
The non-pitching offense. This team can hit, but even teams that can hit have days when they don’t such was today.
Run down plays shouldn’t be hard. And yet… C’mon Tucker.
Yikes that ninth inning.
This seemed like one of those games that teams just lose sometimes. It just happens. I suppose I could dig and find a story or make an issue. But a team loses sometimes. And tonight, the Reds lost. Back at it tomorrow.
*Captain Kirk Voice* I’ve never trusted the Brewers and I never will. I can never forgive them for the death of the ’99 Reds.
