Reds 2, Red Sox 1

Reds beat the Red Sox 2-1 at City of Palms Stadium. My condolences, Muskie fans. I was watching a 12-inch TV that had a slightly fuzzy picture, but that had to be an intentional foul, didn't it?

Back to the regularly scheduled blog:

Kyle Lohse was excellent -- five innings, three hits, no walks, three strikeouts.

Chris Denorfia led off the game with a home run Adam Dunn got the other run in with a two-out single in the third. The Reds don't keep track of average with runners in scoring during the spring. But my guess is Dunn's been very good. Ten of his 13 hits are singles, by the way. Wrote about Dunn for the Sunday paper.

Dustin Hermanson pitched another 1-2-3 innings. The guy works so fast that I've barely seen him pitch. We were talking to Lohse while Hermanson whipped through the sixth. Jon Coutlangus got in a jam worked out it. Jared Burton gave up the run in the eighth. Victor Santos worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save. His ERA is still 0.00 after 8 2/3 innings.

Can´t follow college basket ball in México.
Great to see Lohse pitching good.

I'm reading. I'm not into basketball. I like football, baseball, even tennis and occasionally hockey, but basketball bores me silly.

Any word on Bubba? Is he expected back any time soon?

I'm reading, albeit after the game (wow, what a comeback by the Buckeyes--I thought Xavier had it in the bag).

I am one of Dunn's biggest detractors, but if he continues to drive in runners with timely singles once the season begins, I promise to recant.
