The Cincinnati Reds (18-16) won the first game of the series against the Atlanta Braves (22-14) as Homer Bailey pitched a strong game and Brandon Phillips knocked in a clutch run in the 8th inning. Bailey and the bullpen effectively shut down the Braves bats as the Reds won 3-1. The Good  -Homer Bailey pitched perhaps his best game of the season, allowing only 1 run over 6.2 innings of work. He looked much more comfortable with Catcher Devin Mesoraco, who appears to be calling better games behind the plate. - Logan Ondrusek pitched .2 innings and picked up his 3rd win of the season. Ondrusek, along with, teammate Aroldis Chapman still have still not given up ANY runs this season. That's a 0.00 ERA - After getting the win yesterday, Sean Marshall picked up his 6th save of the season -Brandon Phillips hit a long double off the wall as he knocked in the game winning run during the 8th inning. He did it in front of friends and family, as he is from Georgia. He joked that ...

Reds aren't exactly burning up the basepaths

When a Moment Can Change a Season

[Box Score] [Cincinnati.com] I knew trailing 6-5 in the 9th, that if the Reds could get Joey Votto to the plate that they would win the ballgame. All that needed to happen was Chris Heisey reaching base. By the way I had seen Votto going earlier in the day, it didn’t matter how hard Henry Rodriguez was throwing. His fastball was simply too straight to sneak past Votto three times...
