Waveland of Mutilation. Reds win, 3-0.

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Ryan Hanigan.  For hitting the game winning home run and throwing out a baserunner, the Hani-Man gets the nod.  Honorable mentions go to Bronson Arroyo and Scott Rolen.

Key Plays

  • In the second inning, Jay Bruce walked (yay for not striking out!) and then Ryan Hanigan deposited a pitch from Tom Gorzelanny over the ivy in left center.  Reds lead, 2-0.
  • Paul Janish singled in the seventh inning off of Gorzelanny.  Bronson Arroyo sacrificed him to second, and Brandon Phillips hit a single to bring him in.  Reds win, 3-0.
  • Francisco Cordero walked two batters in the ninth, but Blake DeWitt, representing the tying run, grounded out to the pitcher to end the game.

Other Notes

  • The Reds are 14 games over .500, a season high.
  • The Reds have spent 60 days in first place.  That's two straight months.
  • Francisco Cordero saved his 30th game, the fourth year in a row that he's saved 30 or more.
  • Bronson Arroyo didn't allow a Cubs run for the second time this year.  He's 5-0 with a 1.88 ERA in his last six starts against Chicago.
  • The Reds have been shutout 12 times, but this was the 8th time they've shut out their opponent.  That's pretty good too.
