Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game


Nobody.  Bruce and Nix both hit home runs.  The extra innings pitchers did a pretty good job.  But everybody on both teams was pretty much worthless and miserable.  We'll give the award to Hundley just for ending this Terry Schiavo of a baseball game.

Key Plays

  • In the 8th inning, Jim Joyce, the homeplate umpire, did not call strikes on balls that were clearly in the zone, and David Weathers consequently walked in the tying run.

Other Notes

  • These are the kind of games that can fuck up a team for a long time to come.  The Reds have made a habit of winning the game right after a particularly disheartening loss.  If they can do that again tomorrow, then I will still have hope for this season.  If not, my love for this team might have died tonight.
