The Daily Brief: Final Chance to Win Marlins Series

Last Game
The Reds dropped their game against the Marlins yesterday, 5-3. Paul Janish was the offensive star, although it wasn’t quite enough for the win. On the plus side, the offense did manage to save the tired bullpen from having to work the bottom of the 9th inning.

Next Game
The Reds try one final time to take the 4-game series from the Marlins when they send Aaron Harang to the mound. Florida counters with Josh Johnson. Game-time is again at 7:10pm EDT, and FSN-OH and 700 WLW both carry it.

Miscellaneous Roster Items
The Reds cut Aaron Miles and Wladimir Balentien 10 days ago. And today was the day the Reds had to deal with them. The Reds released Miles and sent Balentien down to Louisville.

In other roster news, Drew Stubbs is nursing a sore back and will miss a few starts. And in the minors, Bill Bray, the last player standing from Wayne Krivsky’s infamous Trade, had a setback in his attempt to come back from Tommy John surgery.

What to Say to Sound Smart at the Water Cooler
With the Reds receiving no interest in Aaron Miles, they are on the hook for his $2.7 million dollar salary.
