The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game
- As the FanGraph shows, the Reds were never less than a coin-flip from winning this game.
- With the exception of Harris and Bailey, every Red had one hit - and one hit only. In fact, no one on either team had a multi-hit game. SOCIALISTS!
- Joey Votto raised his OBP, but lowered his AVG. I don't know how to feel.
- Jay Bruce had faced Tim Byrdak, the pitcher who allowed The Boss' 2010 NL Central-clinching HR, 13 times before entering this game and had a 1.562 OPS. Byrd Man won this battle, striking out Bruce tonight.
- Jeff Brantley tied his personal best for "right down Broadway"s per inning with eleventy.
- The Reds are ten games above .500, a mark the 2010 team hit for the first time on May 29th. Tomorrow, they'll try to tie their longest winning streak so far this season.
Next up: Reds go for the sweep on Father's Day, 1:10. Johnny Cueto vs. Chris Young.
