Reds Host Rockies

Griffey just hit home run number 4 in the bottom of the fifth inning in this series opener with the Rox to make the score 2-4. Sounds like a good time to start a game thread.

    Now, I appreciate that Belisle didn’t look (sound–I was in the friggin’ car) so great that first inning, but man he’s hot since then.

    For those of you keeping abreast (heh heh) of my moving melodrama, you’ll be interested to know that we got our boy a bedroom set today. To this point in his young life he’s slept either in our bed or in this third-hand futon that we got for free when a coworker of mine didn’t want it anymore, so he’s really moving up in the world to get a bunk bed, though he still doesn’t get a box spring.

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo giving up the lead!

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    Gonzalez walks in the bottom of the sixth where the score is all tied up 4-4.

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo Gonzalez in a round-down that eventually results in a double-play!

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    The Crack Technical Staff is screwing around at [url=][/url] It’s pretty involved for a website about rice.

  7. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo ill-conceived throw to first and poor fielding at the base!

  8. Red Hot Mama says:

    I guess the fielding at first wasn’t bad. So double boo for ill-conceived throw to first!

  9. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo Rockies taking the lead!

  10. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hooray Norris Hopper on first!

  11. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hooray sacrifice by Hatte…sort of “hooray” anyway.

  12. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hooray RBI single by Phillips! The game is tied.

    Man, Hopper is a fast runner.

  13. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo Phillips thrown out at the plate. 😥

  14. Red Hot Mama says:

    Upon watching the replay, I think that Phillips was safe. I also think that Thom Brennaman is way too distracting.

  15. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hooray Saarloos!

  16. Red Hot Mama says:

    Two outs in the bottom of the 8th, score tied at 5s. Hamilton’s aboard on a walk, and I’m wondering whether there’s anyone left in the line-up to knock him in.

    Ross is at the bat. Can he do it?

  17. Red Hot Mama says:

    Well that answers THAT question.

    They’re still tied going into the ninth.

  18. Red Hot Mama says:

    Way to throw out Taveras, EdE. One away.

  19. Red Hot Mama says:

    Two away, and my fingers are crossed…

  20. Red Hot Mama says:

    Nice catch by Hatte to end the top of the ninth in a tie. It’s walk-off time, boys!

  21. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hooray using Javy as a pinch hitter! Good call, Bucky.

  22. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo grounder to first. Two more chances for the walkoff.

  23. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo striking out Hatte. That doesn’t happen much. One mroe try, guys.

  24. Red Hot Mama says:

    Phillips walks. nice to see some patience from the lad.

  25. Red Hot Mama says:

    Griffey pops out, darn it. I’m too tired for extras!

  26. Red Hot Mama says:

    OK, double play gets em out of the top of the inning without a score, and I’m rapidly running out of awake time. If this is the last post on this thread, thanks everyone who came by!

  27. Redsfan68 says:

    Stanton pulled 1 batter too late runner on second…

  28. Redsfan68 says:

    Booooooo !!!!!

  29. Redsfan68 says:

    Weathers lets the runner score… of course

  30. Redsfan68 says:

    and we lose… good thing you left when you did RHM….

  31. Red Hot Mama says:

    Boo keeping me up for that! 😥

  32. Red Hot Mama says:

    I actually conked out to wake up and discover the game done. Nothing to do now but to conk back out and hope for tomorrow.

  33. Zeldink says:

    Tomorrow is another day, after all.

    Thus ends Bucky Dent’s perfect record as a substitute for Narron.

    I attended this heart breaker. I verbally blasted Weathers as he exited, saying something along the lines “that doesn;t count on your ERA, does it David?” I saw him kick the dirt as he exited the field retiring a batter too late allowing his inherited runner to score the go-ahead. I also screamed “this bullpen sucks!” Everyone was in unanimous agreement. We aren’t going anywhere with these losers. Rob Dibble, please come out of retirement. The Rox guy struck Hamilton out with 97mph gas, and our guys are throwing 88 with smoke and mirrors. Jesus its gonna be a long season.

    At this pint I wish to remind everyone that moi (the Big Red Mechanic) did not want Weathers on this staff, per my season in review. Not only do they bring this chump back but they continue to make huim the marquee closer crunch guy. The rest of the league is laughing at us. It would be one thing if he was used in situational 6th or 7th inning relief… but closer? David Weathers? Hire me as scout immediately, the team is a farce.

    On a much lighter note, Griffey doubled over laughing between batters when three dudes wearing superhero costumes greeted him at the right field foul line where I also sat for much of the game. He gestured for them to stand up and he motioned for Hamilton and Dunn to check it out. They were wearing Green Lantern, Captain america, and Bat Man costumes. Classic moment. Was this caught on tv by any chance?
