Reds 2, Diamondbacks 1

Javy Valentin, pinch-hitting for David Ross, rifled a two-run double to right to put the Reds up 2-1 in the seventh.

Feel free to post comments on the genius move by Jerry Narron. Just kidding, but Narron has shown he's got control of this club. Moving Ken Griffey was the big move. But benching Edwin Encanacion was another sign of it.

Matt Belisle's line: 6 IP, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, 3 Ks. The one walk to Stephen Drew to start the first led to the run. He's gone 12 innings in his two starts and allowed two runs on seven hits with two walks and 9 strikeouts

John, It's still early but has Dick Pole's presence as pitching coach made a difference? And it sure seems that Brook Jacoby has done like-wise with Adam Dunn and with Griffey as both have been going to left quite a bit. The next 20-25 games should show us if this club can compete in the NL Central.
