Pirates discover the Reds' Secret Underground Lehr. Reds lose, 3-1.



Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Andy LaRoche.  He went 2-3 and drove in two runs.

Key Plays

  • The Brothers McCutchen did the damage in the third inning.  Lehr walked Daniel McCutchen, then Andrew McCutchen doubled.  That's when Andy LaRoche hit his single.  Pirates 2, Reds 0.
  • In the fourth inning, Lastings Milledge  went all Blastings Milledge and hit a home run.  Pirates 3, Reds 0.
  • The Reds didn't have much in the way of offense, but Wladimir Balentien did hit a home run in the seventh inning.  Pirates 3, Reds 1.

 Other Notes

  • On both of his hits, Andy LaRoche was thrown out trying to stretch his single into a double.
  • Double-machine Paul Janish hit a double.  Then Joey Votto hit what should have been a double, but Lastings Milledge made a nice catch.  Flashtings-the-Leather Milledge.
  • Arthur Rhodes apparently broke his toe on Sept. 4.  He then pitched in eight games.  And now he's on the disabled list.  Thanks for the great season, Colossus!
  • Walt Jocketty also broke his toe when he was kicking Dick Pole to the curb.
  • This was Daniel McCutchen's first career victory.  Shame it came against the Reds, but congratulations kid.  You prevented the Pirates from losing 100 games this season.
