    As I’m reading this I watch a passed ball against the cubs move a runner up into scoring position. Nice to see other major league teams make mistakes too.

    According to Lance on Twitter, Ervin is 17 of his last 32 (.531).

    Scooter grounds to 2B to move Ervin to third.

    Insurance run is 90 feet away with 1 out and Iglesias at the plate.

    Letís go Reds!
    Rizzo and Cubs catcher let a ball fall between them in foul territory that should have been out #3.

    Farmer then doubles down the line to score Ervin. 5-3 Reds.

    Now that huge play letting that ball fall in foul territory coming back to bite them. It’s nice to see that despite what we read, other teams than the Reds make mistakes.

    They said going 5 for 5 a day or so ago, raised his average 70 points in one day.

    Looks like Casali was injured blocking a ball earlier. He finished the inning but was then pinch hit for and is out of the game now.

    Sure hope Casali isn’t hurt badly with Barnhart already out.

    How huge has Kyle Farmer turned out to be? He’s played 3/4 infield positions, and has saved the Reds a 40 man roster spot the last few weeks with Barnhart out.

    Lorenzen gets into some trouble with 1 out, but Iglesias comes in and gets a line out to Suarez that allowed him to double the man off second.

    That ball was smashed. Sometimes itís better to be lucky than good.

    Saw where tonight's Cubs starter has a 4.73 ERA in AAA. Be nice to take another one from them tonight.

    Reds are tied with the Pirates at 4th in the division, even though the Reds are (+36) and the Pirates are (-55) in run differential.
