Fourth Fells Feldman: Reds Win 7-4

Eagles are sweet - Jamie Sabau

I didn't watch this game. Did you? Was it good?

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Joey Votto. 2-4 with a home run and two runs scored. This stopped being funny four seasons ago.

Honorable mentions to Zackuum and Beeperino, both 2-4. Ryan Hanigan's three-run home run gave the Reds an insurmountable lead, which is pretty cool if you think about it.

Key Plays

  • In the Cubs' half of the second, they pieced together a Valbuena double, Navarro single, Barney sac fly, and Scotty Feldman home run to go up 3-0. Pitcher home run. Dang.
  • The Reds came back in the fourth, though. Votto Molson'd a pilsener, then BP singled. Cubs defensive Cubbiness got him to third, and after a Todd Frazier walk, XP singled in Beep. Hanigan then hit his second slam of the year to put the Reds up 5-3.
  • Broxton, man. Especially with Marshall out, I'm not thrilled with this turn of events. In the 8th inning, a Sweeney double and Valbuena single put the Cubs within one.
  • But fortunately, the heart of the order. In the bottom of the inning, Votto singled and Phillips smacked him home and followed him there. Reds up 7-4 and Chapman struck out the side (though with some baserunners) in the 9th.

Other Notes

  • I'm exhausted and didn't get to watch an inning. But I hope you enjoyed yourself. It seemed like a great day for enjoying.
  • Boss tWood vs. Homer Bailey at 4:10 ET tomorrow.
  • We're reaching the end of the third inning (the first third) of the season. Things are going okay, but it's time to get serious and stop pussyfootin' around.
