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.
- 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.
- 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.
