Sure is nice to win again, eh? Even with Wee Danny Hudson doing his best Ian Kennedy impression, the Reds held onto a 2-1 lead into the ninth, when they exploded for 4 runs off very large reliever Juan Gutierrez (dude is listed as 6'3-260!!!) to seal the deal. BronBron was SolidSolid, scattering some hits and getting out of jams. I feel like that's just kinda what he does.

And who doesn't love day baseball? Even if spring is being a huge wuss in NYC and getting pushed around by winter, it looks to be a pleasant 68 degrees in AZ for this titanic struggle.

Fun fact: If the Reds win today, it will mark Dusty Baker's 250th win as the Reds' manager, making him the 11th manager in history with at least 250 wins with 3 different teams. Personally, I'm hoping he becomes a manager with at least one World Series with two different teams, but, hey, baby steps, right?

6 - 2
