    Awful might be putting it lightly. The one replay they showed made it look like the relay guy already had the ball before Winker even hit third. Billy Hamilton would've had a hard time scoring from there. It was almost like the coach wasn't even watching the ball, and was only watching Winker. I thought it was going to come back and bite the Reds in the butt for sure when Iglesias led off the next inning with a homer.

    In saying that, him getting on base in the 8th inning lead to them tying the game. Him getting on base in the 10th lead to them winning the game.
    This.

    And if thereís anyone on the roster that has earned the benefit of the doubt that theyíre gonna get it turned around, itís Joey. Dude has been one of the best handful of players in the game over the past ~10 years.

    Beer Vendors will now be carrying Mich Ultra. Might not be big news for any of you guys in here but that is huge for the beer man!

    You typically have requests for that?

    Quite a bit this season. We started getting it a lot more often last year, but I could usually convince them to take a Bud Light instead. This year, we are getting asked even more but not as often will they just take a Bud Light.

    I need to figure out what I think a good ration of Bud Light to Mich Ultra will be. It's the fastest growing beer in the US, I believe.

    Terrible luck for Reds in first inning. Bryant struck out but ump would not call it. Biaz hits a ball down the line which looked foul and ump called it fair and then had a weak ground ball that hit third base for two runs.

    Reds battle back to take 3-2 lead and it brought major rain in the top of the 6th.

    Votto with a very good pick on a ball in the dirt to keep Reds lead at 3-2 in bottom of 6th.

    Don’t look now folks...Joey is 4-12 with a HR and a BB this series. May be starting to turn it around.

    Votto with his second hit leading to an RBI single by Suarez. Casali strikes out with bases loaded. Reds lead 4-2 going to the 8th. Hernandez on the mound.

    Easy, he has had a good series but Dodgers coming to town with lots of good pitching.

    Going to the ninth with Igelias coming in. We really need three outs.

    Igelias mows them down and big win and big series win. It does not get any easier with the Dodgers coming to town.
