Grip it and rip it: Reds beat Padres, 8-2.

For those who are still awake, I bring you an abbreviated version of the game recap.

 

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Ryan Hanigan.  I don't really care that he was only 1 for 5.  That one hit was pretty important, since it was a two-out double that scored Jonny Gomes from first to put the Reds up 3-2 in the 11th.  Honorable mentions go to Gomes (2 for 4 with a double), Drew Stubbs (2 for 6 with a 3-run HR), Sam LeCure (6 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 1 ER), and Chris Heisey, who hit an RBI single in his only at bat.  But most of the runs were made possible by Hanigan's double with two outs.
