Eh, I don't even feel like making a rapture reference. Reds lose, 2-1.

Joe Nuxhall Honorary Memorial Star of the Game

There wasn't much offense on either side, but Ryan Hanigan was the only player with two hits.  So there's that.  Honorable mentions to both starters (Josh Tomlin and Homer Bailey), each of whom allowed only one hit through six innings.

 

Key Plays

  • The Reds scored first in the seventh.  After a Joey Votto flyout, BP worked an HBP and advanced to third on a Jay Bruce single.  He scored on a poorly played Scott Rolen groundout.  Reds lead, 1-0.
  • The Indians overtook them in the bottom of the inning.  Asdrubal Cabrera, and two outs later Travis Buck sent one just barely over the right field wall.  Orlando Cabrera doubled but was stranded.  Indians lead, 2-1.
  • The Reds threatened in the eighth with a Ryan Hanigan leadoff single.  After he was pulled for pinch-runner Travis Wood (completely baffling Indians announcers), Vinnie Pestano struck out the side to leave the runner at first.
  • Similar story in the ninth.  Votto walked to lead it off, but was erased by a GIBP.  An ugly K by Rolen ended this one.

Other Notes

 

  • Jonny Gomes was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts.  He's now 1 for his last 22 with one walk.
  • Edgar Renteria went 0 for 3.  He's 2 for his last 32.
  • The only players to hit second in the order since May 5?  Either one of those two or Janish, who's now 1 for his last 22.
