Found July 01, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
After a lackluster 8 innings, the Reds started to come back in the 9th, having the bases loaded with no outs, allowing Miguel Cairo to come to the plate and drive in the tying run. Unfortunately, two strikeouts and a pop-out ended the Reds best chance of winning the game. The Giants came back in the bottom of the ninth, and won the game with an Angel Pagan ground rule double with men on first and second.

He is still batting below .240. - Sean Marshall started off shaky, letting tw...
