Oooh 6-4 Reds now...the Padres are giving them fits....
The Padres offense hasn't been too terrible lately, but their pitching leaves a fair amount to be desired, especially in a hitters park like Great America.
Next year, if they can upgrade their staff a bit, there could be some big improvement. Add in Quentin and Headley for another year with their young players (Grandal, Alonso, etc) and there is plenty of potential there.
Well, they gave them fits for a bit.
And former Pirates continue to haunt us, whether it's horrific performances like Ross The Boss, indirect stellar ones like Ludwick, or directly hurting us like Steve Pearce.
There seems to be no help on the horizon. Looks like the Bucs are just gonna hafta do this one on their own.
Just keep winning series boys. The Reds have to come back down to earth don't they? DON'T THEY?!
Aramis Ramirez hits a solo shot and extends the Brewers lead to 2-0 over the Reds.
And now Corey Hart sends a solo shot to extend the lead to 3-0. They're in the bottom of the sixth over there.
Yeah Baby!!! Just watched HArt's mammoth HR....hate rooting for the Brewers but...but...no i still hate rooting for them...
Do the Reds still have the magic? Paul with the single to bring in run, bases still loaded.
If the Brewers blow this game it's gonna feel like they did it just to intentionally screw the Pirates.
It's that ballpark, nothing good for the Pirates ever happens there. I blame Randall Simon for bringing the curse of the sausage race upon us.
