Key to winning: Ugly hats. Pete Rose has won more games than any other athlete ever. QED. Reds win, 7-3.

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Jay Bruce.  We're going to have to rename this honor if Bruce keeps up his torrid pace.  Our amazing right fielder went 3-4 with a triple and 3 RBI to go along with his customary home run.  Honorable mentions go to Paul Janish (2-4 with a stolen base and an RBI) and Nick Masset (a scoreless inning of relief, and two strikeouts).

Key Plays

  • In the second inning, robot-posing-as-human Jay Bruce tripled off of Chris NarvesonJonny Gomes then hit a sacrifice fly and Bruce scored.  Say what you want about Gomes, but Adam Dunn never would have done that.  Reds lead, 1-0.
  • The next time Sadaharu Bruce came to the plate, Joey Votto and Scott Rolen had reached, courtesy of a walk and a single respectively.  Bruce then let loose with a mighty wallop, and a three run homer was had.  Jonny Gomes then hit a double ("the Special Olympics home run!"), and one out later scored when Paul Janish singled.  Reds lead, 5-0.
  • I don't know what it is about Carlos Gomez at Great American, but the dude homered there again in the fifth inning.  Josh Wilson, batting for the Narv Dog, also homered.  Corey Hart then singled, and Ryan Braun doubled, bringing around speedy pinch runner Nyjer Morgan.  Reds lead, 5-3.
  • With two outs in the bottom of the sixth, Ryan Hanigan and Paul Janish both singled.  Pinch hitter Fred Lewis also singled, and Hanigan and Janish both scored, aided by a throwing error on Jonathan Lucroy.  Reds win, 7-3.
