Last night’s ballgame was another good ballgame for the Reds. They didn’t win but the fact is they fought hard and lost to a better ballclub. It came down to the final out for the Reds and nearly resulted in a spirited comeback.
Yovani Gallardo (newly acquired hired gun on the Legendary Hillbillies) threw 6 and 2/3 innings effectively, allowing only one run. Prince Fielder added 2 RBI and 2 hits including a triple. Ryan Braun–that son of a bitch just keeps on hitting as well. Is there an uglier player in baseball (not named Jason Werth) than Corey Hart? Corey Hart didn’t play but he really does look like Chewbacca from Star Wars.
Adam Dunn slammed a 2 run homerun, and of course every time he hits one it’s going to get some run on this blog for about another week or so, because it could be the last one he hits as a Red. Dunn’s shot off Derek Turnbow brought the Reds back to a 1-run deficit (4-3) and was the 225th of his career. He’s also got a 10-game hitting streak.
