Edinson Volquez didn't suck today, but from what I saw on ESPN while at the bar he did struggle in the first he Hi-C bailed him out with a great catch. Yet according to ESPN's bottom line he only gave up 2 runs in 6 innings.
I didn't actually watch the game, well other than watching Joey take a walk in the late innings when the mlbnetwork gave us a live look in from the bar I was watching the game at. But....
Also Coco didn't blow the save, so go COCO! One run leads in the 9th are really scary with Coco so it was nice to see that Coco didn't create problems.
Joe Nuxhal player of the game: Joey Votto, only play I watched live and he took a walk. Plue he is Joey Fucking Votto so he should always be the player of the game simply for existing, Joey Fucking Votto. Although Drew Stubbs deserves an honorable mention for bailing Volquez out in the first, this could have gone the way of opening day and 5 days ago otherwise.
Anyway as long as a game doesn't go 15+ innings in this series I will consider it a success.
