Oh, did you not see that game?

It sucked.

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Rafael Furcal.  Besides going 5-6, Furcal also made two stellar defensive plays to rob Joey Votto and Scott Rolen of hits.  Honorable mentions go to James Loney, Manny Ramirez, Drew Stubbs and Jordan Smith.

Other Notes

  • There was a lengthy rain delay in the top of the fifth inning.  The umpires decided to keep playing, but the Reds decided to call it a day.
  • Brandon Phillips's 15 game hitting streak came to an end.
  • Reds pitchers surrendered 19 hits, a season high.  The previous high was 18, also against the Dodgers.
  • A starter went out after the rain delay to get the five innings to qualify for a win -- and it wasn't Aaron Harang!
  • Three Dodgers (Rafael Furcal, James Loney, and Casey Blake) saw 31 pitches.  Only three Reds saw 15 or more pitches.
  • Jordan Smith made his major league debut, giving up one hit and pitching a scoreless ninth.  He was the only Reds pitcher to not give up a run.
  • Reds relievers allowed all their inherited runners to score.  Micah Owings walked the relief pitcher while the bases were loaded.
  • The Dodgers are averaging 10 runs a game this season at Great American Ball Park.
