Angels 6, Reds 3

When Vladimir Guerrero comes in on an 0-for-13 slide as he did Wednesday night, you can be pretty sure when he comes out of it, he's going to do some damage.

The Reds were the victims of that. Vlad went 3-for-5 with four RBI and a couple of doubles. It didn't help at all that the guys hitting in front of Guerrero -- Chone Figgins and Orlando Cabrebra -- went 2-for-4 and 3-for-4.

"That's asking for trouble," Jerry Narron said.

So the fate of the series rests on one Homer Bailey. First pitch is in 14 hours and 10 minutes. Sleep fast, as Jack McKeon used to say.

It'd be nice to pick up a W with a very sweepable Rangers team coming to town.

I love Dunn, but do what you can. But keep Griffey no matter what!

No too difficult to come out of a slump when you get fastballs over the heart of the plate to hit ... we pitched him well in the opener and like BP in game two ... not rocket science.

has anyone ever suggested that Dunn might need contact lenses? I'm serious about this - he walks a lot and he strikes out looking a lot. He's always squinting in the outfield. As a person with poor vision myself, he looks like I do when not wearing my glasses.

I'm not buying the reflection off the Scripps building excuse for last night's fielding gaffe. I think a big strong guy like that from Texas might be too proud to admit he can't see.

Just a theory.

John. Good job covering the Red's One point about the Red's bothers me, their HITTING. Pitchers always seem to be working with little support from the bats. I see some improvement over the last month but overall, the bats are silent. Why, too many line up changes, too little talent with the bats? Unfortunately I see little improvement from the minors. Also, Dunn needs a new team, in exchange, get a player or two with a good batting eye. (I know, they will add pitchers instead.) Don
