Reds 3, Pirates 1: Dickerson Runs Fast

Reds (54-68)010001001371
Pirates (55-66)100000000180
W: Cueto (8-11) L: Snell (4-10) S: Cordero (23)


Chris Dickerson went 3-4 on the day after being “protected” by his “manager.” (Corey Patterson continued to play and would have screwed the Reds over again with a base-running blunder, had it not been for Dickerson saving his pathetic butt.) Javier Valentí­n added a solo shot along with the 2 RBI from Dickerson, and that was enough.

Johnny Cueto finally got a win again, and the Reds bullpen didn’t suck, despite the appearance of Magic Man Gary Majewski.

Ian Snell pitched okay for the Pirates, allowing 2 runs in 6 innings, but his team was unable to score.

The win gave the Reds the victory in the 3-game series.
