Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Ramon Hernandez.  Clutch Man Monie struck in a not-so-clutch situation, hitting a three run HR in the second inning.  He added a double and a run scored in the fourth.  An honorable mention goes to Chris Heisey, who also had two hits, one of them a HR.

Key Plays

  •  The Reds struck early, staking out a 5-0 lead with that three-run HR and a two-RBI single by Juan Francisco in the third.
  • Johnny Cueto was cruising until he was pulled in the fourth with what we're hearing was a strained lat.  I know practically nothing, but I don't like the sound of that.  At any rate, Sam LeCure gave up 2 ER in two and a third innings to earn the win.
  • After scoring the aforementioned run in the fourth on an Edgar Renteria single, the Reds added another run on a Heisey solo HR in the eighth.
  • There was one more highlight left: a very nice play at third by Francisco.  Reds win, 7-2.
