-Reds start the weekend off with a big 10-3 victory in Cincinnati, coupled with a St. Louis loss to Zack Greinke (what goes around comes around), the Reds are now a half game in first place and have won four straight.
Drew Stubbs drove in four runs, Jay Bruce doubled twice, drove in a run on a sac fly, walked, and scored three times, and Scott Rolen homered.
-Love the green hats. Irish heritage day at the ball park is pretty cool in the fact that we get to see the green hats.
-I like the Reds chances tonight against Justin Masterson. In fact I like their chances to get a sweep this weekend if LeCure pitches decently this evening. Do you remember the Friday night back in June of 2008 that the Reds hung the first loss of his career on him? Here’s the box score from the 3-1 final that evening against the Red Sox.
-Big talk around the league is Edwin Jackson throwing 149 pitches for a no-hitter last night against the Tampa Bay Rays despite walking 8 batters. I’ll say this, the guy was throwing 95 MPH in the 9th after 140 pitches. Now we know why he was somewhat coveted.
-I’m going to a wedding in Parma, Ohio this evening. Gotta run. GO REDS. I’ll try and update the twitter later if you wanna hear my thoughts on the evening’s action. Look out though.
