Wow, what a good pitching matchup. I know Harang hasn't been his top-notch self lately, but it seems to me that he has a knack for stepping up in games like this. Unfortunately, the already struggling offense is going to have an even tougher go of it.
Since June 10th, the offense has scored 33 runs in 13 games (2.54 R/G). Their batting line is a pathetic .202/.272/.318. I keep thinking that things have to turn around for them. There is some serious talent in those bats, but it isn't going anywhere. They are currently on pace to score 690 runs for the season, which would be the lowest total since 1997 and would also be only the 3rd time since the strike that they've scored less than 700 runs in a season. I didn't expect this offense to be great, but I sure didn't think it would be this bad.
So, uh, go Reds!
