Pirates 6, Reds 4 (Game 1)

Thus the winning streak ends. The loss points up how difficult it's going to be for the Reds to keep winning consistently with three question marks in the rotation.

Elizardo Ramirez is 0-2 with a 8.79 ERA in his three starts. He says his shoulder's OK. But I haven't seen him hit 90 mph yet. He was consistently at 90, 91 when he was going good last year.

Matt Belisle and Tom Shearn are coming off good starts. But they have to string a few together for the Reds to play the way they need to get into real contention.

By the way, Jeff Keppinger started the game in right. He just threw Jose Castillo trying to stretch a single into a double. It saved the Reds a run. Very nice play.

It might be time to give Gosling a chance or call up Matt Maloney who pitched today for Louisville-5 IP 4 runs and 10K's.

The Reds need a starter for Saturday. I thought they might hold Maloney back, just in case he was needed. I don't have a clue what they'll do now. Gosling is a possibility, I suppose.

Doen't much matter who they start now , does it? Starr Mike Stanton, makes as much sense as starting Ellison in left field in a game you must win. wHAT IS MACKANIN GOING TO DO ABOUT GRIFFEY?
