Trying To Hang On

Tough luck for the Reds that they ran into Carpenter and Zambrano on back to back nights. Tougher luck that both starting pitchers were on top of their games. The Reds wasted good outings by their own starting pitchers on those nights. Harang and Owings pitched well enough to win on a lot of nights, but not on Thursday and Friday. On Friday the Reds had the tying run just 90 feet away in the eighth and ninth innings. I'm starting to wonder if the Reds can hang on until Votto returns.

It's tough to send Jay Bruce to the minors to get his stroke back with Votto still on the d.l. Bruce had a hit Friday night and hasn't struck out for the last four games. I dunno, just looking for some reason to think he's about to snap out of it.

Good Luck to Moeller as the Crusaders baseball team goes for a state title Saturday night. Badin lost a tough one in the division 3 state championship game this morning. The Rams lost 7-6 in eight innings to Indian Valley. The winning run scored in the bottom of the eighth on an error.
Also, good luck to the Ross girls, trying to nail down Ohio's division 2 state title in fast pitch softball.
