In progress: Yankees 6, Reds 2

Yankess lead the Reds 6-3 at soldout Ed Smith Stadium.

The Yanks scored an unearned run in the second on a Paul Janish error. Kyle Lohse, who had pitched well to that point, walked the first two hitters of the third, and then gave up a first-pitch home run to Bobby Abreu.

Reds loaded the bases in the first on hits from Ryan Freel, Josh Hamilton and Brandon Phillips. But Adam Dunn flied to shallow right, and Edwin Encarnacion hit into a 6-4-3 double play.

Lohse gave up another run in the fourth.

The Reds scored two in the bottom of the fourth on Lohse' bases loaded single.

But Javier Valentin, who scored the first run, left the game after the inning. He pulled up and couldn't score from second on Janish's drive to base of wall earlier in the inning. He has a strained left hamstring. If it's bad at all, Chad Moeller makes the team.

Lohse gave up another homer -- to ARod -- to start the fifth.

Reds scored a run in the fifth. Phillips single, Dunn single. Encarnacion RBI groundout.

Hamilton's motto's must be: .500 or bust. I was talking to a scout about him. "It's no illusion. He's that good. Great, gutsy pick by the Reds. He'll cool off. But him cooled off is better than some guys red hot."

Marty and Jeff were talking about when the Yankees were coming out onto the field in their half of the inning and something scared them and they all went scattering - even Mark Berry almost jumped into the Yankees dugout. Thought it might be lightning or possibly a snake or something? You see anything?

As near as we could tell in the press box, it was bees. Shortly after the infield scattered, the Yankees bullpen emptied. If I recall, the Reds had a "bee delay" at Riverfront in 70s. Had to bring a beekeeper in to get the bees out. Hal McCoy's not here right now, but I'm sure he'd remember the game.
