Reds vs. Giants

BubbaFan


March 11, 2013 - Well, here's one solution to the low attendance problem. Play the Giants more often. Goodyear Ballpark was overrun by Giants fans. It sounded like they were the home team, not the Reds.

It was Tony Cingrani on the mound, against longtime Brave Tim Hudson.

Frazier hit a double off Hudson. One-handed. Would have been a home run if he'd used no hands! (And it almost was. He smoked it.)

Billy Hamilton also hit a double off Hudson.

Joey struck out looking a couple of times, which annoyed the fans, who were yelling things like, "At least go down swinging, Joey!"

Skip had a good day, with a double and a home run.

Most of the starters were pulled in the 7th. Except Joey Votto. He got one more at-bat.

Chapman batted for himself. He grounded out, but seemed to be having fun.
