The Reds faced Oswalt. You know the drill.
Goat of the Game
Francisco Cordero. SoSo gave up three runs in the 9th inning to blow the game.
- The Reds couldn't string hits together. They had eight hits and two walks, including two hits apiece by Alex Gonzalez (who's rounding nicely into form) and Unstoppable Joey Votto ("I'm the Joeggernaut, bitch!" -- nah), but only managed to produce one run.
- Cueto was nails again tonight, going 7 innings, striking out five and only walking one. It was a better performance than Oswalt. His only mistake was giving up a home run to Lance Berkman, which I guess means he's officially a Red.
- Chris Dickerson was removed from the game after doing a heada into Tejada.
- Only 12,365 in attendance tonight. To put that in perspective, 14,832 people went to see the Los Angeles Sol beat the Washington Freedom on March 30. Yes, those are women's professional soccer teams.
