"And with that, a mighty cheer went up from the heroes of the Diamondbacks. They had banished the awful Micah Owings forever! Because it was haunted."

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Micah Owings.  7 IP, 1 ER, 4 hits, 4 K, 2 BB.  The only reason anybody scored on him is because he hit a guy and was ejected, and then the bullpen let him score.

Key Plays

  • On Sep. 12, 2008, Micah Owings is named as the PBTNL to complete the trade of Adam Dunn from Cincinnati to Arizona.  Owings swears unholy vengeance.
  • On May 12, 2009, Owings exacts it.
  • Also, Brandon Phillips got some RBIs.

Other Notes

  • Votto left the game in the 4th inning with what appears to be some kind of nausea or dehydration.
  • The Reds equaled a season high for most earned runs scored off of Haren.
  • Arthur Rhodes allowed a run on Felipe Lopez's double, but the run was charged to Owings.  Rhodes still has an ERA of 0.00.
  • Oh yeah, Owings was ejected after hitting Ryan Roberts in the 8th inning.
  • With the win, the Reds are one game behind St. Louis in the Central, and have a better record than three other division leaders.  They are five games over .500 for the first time since Aug. 25, 2006.
  • Coco Cordero's 10 saves are the most in the majors.
