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.
