    Phillies at Reds 9/2 - 9/5

    Reds lost first game with a real lack luster effort in the first game. The Punisher did hit one into the second deck though. Lucas Sims starting tonight I believe.

    Between Igelias, Garrett and Lorenzen they have a combined 16 losses. I know they have been terrible in late game situations but let me throw this in. Our late game offense has been terrible also. In tie games we just have a lot of trouble scoring runs in late game situations. We don't bunt and have a tough game scoring if it is not a Home Run. Some of these losses can be blamed here and manager decisions.

    Reds relievers are walking the whole team tonight. It just amazes me that our receivers can not throw strikes to begin the inning. We must walk the first batter and sometime the first two.

    He has been pathetic, surely they’ll cut him loose after the year is over.

    Did the announcers say anything about why they took Lucas Sims out of the game so early last night? Was that planned all along? Things I'm not privy to while working down there.

    On a positive note Aristides Aquino was named the MLB player of the month. His 14 homers in the month of August is the most by a rookie in a calendar month in the history of baseball.

    I believe that he leads the majors in HRs and RBIs since being called up, prior to last night.

    Just took him out due to the fact that he had been working out of the bullpen. Not used to going longer distances.

    He was also Rookie of the month and player of the month. That's pretty good.

    Votto hits Homer #15 and gets an RBI double in the third. Reds up 3-0.

    Reds have successfully proceeded to blow a five run lead. Lorenzen gives up Home Run to Jay Bruce to tie the game. Again, Reds put up early runs and do not score more as of yet.

    Igelsais hit a Home Run to give Reds a 6-5 lead. Can the pen hold on.
