The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game
Should probably mention Kris Negron in this space too. He picked up his 1st major league hit, scored two runs and played CF. He may be playing some more of it, with Heisey and Stubbs potentially both on the shelf this weekend.
- Leake looked like he needed a cold compress and some Marx Bros movies in the first inning. He settled down, though he only made it through 84 pitches.
- It turned into a laffer in the 5th. Ryan Ludwick outsourced a two-run hoobler (and also Gray'd out later in the inning) as the Reds sent 11 men to the plate.
- After a Kris Neg-run in the 6th and a 2-run peace offering to the Indians by Alfredo Simon "Bolivar" in the 7th, the Reds won, 12-5.
- My family is from Cleveland. I like the Indians. But I'd root against nine clones of myself if the Reds were playing them. Mostly because that would be horrifying and I'd want them to be put down.
- Ludwick's 9th HR keeps him 3rd on the team.
- Entering today, Alfredo Simon had only surrendered one ER since April 12.
- The Reds roster is still an infirmary, apparently. I can't fathom why they haven't at least DL'd Drew Stubbs.
- Kris Negron is second on the team in OBP.
- The last time the Reds had 17 hits or more was 4/3/11 (19 hits to complete a season-opening sweep of the Brewers).
Next up: For some reason, the Reds have to go back to New York again to play the Mets at Citi Field. 7:10, Bronson vs. Dillon Gee. Hopefully the Reds will have enough players so they won't have to forfeit. With compromised immune systems, I recommend staying in CT.
