Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Scott Podsednik.  Podsednik capped off a big series against the Reds with a 2-5 performance and two runs scored.

Key Plays

  • Aaron Harang got off to a rough start, giving up singles to the hard to spell Podsednik, Ramirez, and Pierzynski.  Podsednik scored, and then Alexei Ramirez scored when Paul Konerko grounded into a double play.
  • In the fifth inning, Podsednik led off with a single again.  He moved to second on an A.J. Pierzynski ground out, then scored on a Konerko single.  3-0 Pale Hose.  What a terrible nickname though.
  • In the eighth inning, the Chris Dickerson replaced Willy Taveras, and immediately things got better for the Reds.  Dickerson singled, stole a base, took third on a wild pitch, and scored on a Brandon Phillips sac fly.  Linebrink was looking vulnerable, with Gomes and Jerry Hairston on base, but first half "MVP" Ramon Hernandez lined into an inning ending double play.
  • The White Sox pooh-poohed the Reds run, when Gordon Beckham walked in the ninth and scored when DeWayne Wise - yes, that DeWayne Wise - hit a double.

Looks kind of like an elevation map of Maryland.

Other Notes

  • The Reds are perfectly .500.  34-34 overall record, 17-17 at home, 17-17 on the road.
  • Paul Konerko's RBI single was the 1,000th of his career.  Sean Casey had 735 RBI in his career.
  • Aaron Harang has not won since May 25, but this was Mark Buehrle's first win since May 19.
  • Adam Rosales is taking a commanding lead in "McBain: Race for Mendoza."  The standings are as follows:  Rosales (0-3) - .202, Alex Gonzalez (DNP) - .214, Bruce (1-3, BB) - .216, Taveras (0-3, 2K) - .224.
