Another nice bounce-back win yesterday (Thursday). Aaron Harang was brilliant under brutal weather conditions. And the Reds hitters returned to their patient, effective approach at the plate that has worked so well this year. Edwin Encarnacion and Austin Kearns, in particular in the four-run second inning fell behind 0-2, then worked the count full, before getting hits. And how about Harang’s two hits. The Reds still have lost only one series all year.
But back to the weather. We haven’t seen days like this since Spring Training… so I’m headed to the pool…. enjoy the game tonight (yes, another "Friday Night Fight"). Carpenter, Sheets, Oswalt and now UK alum Brandon Webb, who’s off to a great start.
From a place where it’s widely celebrated, I wish you a "Happy Cinco de Mayo!!"
One "shout-out" I forgot on Thursday, but congratulations to Dan Hoard and his wife, Peg, on the birth of their son Samuel!! 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Born Wednesday morning, all are doing well.
