OK, one last post as I catch up from the computer struggles of the last week. The Reds won tonight, taking a half-game lead on the Cardinals for first in the Central (pending the outcome of the Cards-Dodgers game tonight). The Reds got a good outing from Aaron Harang, who went seven solid innings to get the win. He threw 114 pitches. I wasn't following the action, but Harang appeared to leave the bases loaded in the seventh despite not allowing any runs in the inning. It looks like the Reds got away with it tonight, but I wouldn't have minded seeing Harang come out a bit earlier myself. The offense bounced back from a rough outing against Matt Cain the night before, plating 6 runs behind big nights for Orlando Cabrera (single and three doubles) and Scott Rolen (single and two doubles). Drew Stubbs homered for the Reds as well.
The Reds conclude the series tomorrow with an afternoon game against the Giants.
