Reds 1, Dodgers 0
Aaron Harang certainly did not look like a guy with a sore back or a guy who had not pitched in seven days: 8 IP, 4 hits, 1 walk, 8 Ks.
Brandon Phillips made two of the best plays of the year. Look for them on a highlight show near you.
First back-to-back shutouts by the Reds since 2000.
As I was leaving the clubhouse, Todd Coffey asked me if I had anything against him. I said I didn't. He was not happy with headline in the today's paper. I told him I don't write the headlines. He was very polite about the whole thing.
I like the guy, and I think he'll be a good pitcher again. I think the team would do him a favor by sending him to Louisville where he could pitch on a regular basis and work on things. Keeping him here to pitch in lost causes is ludicrous.
By the way, Jon Coutlangus gave up five runs without retiring a batter in Louisville tonight. Maybe Wayne Krivsky saw that coming.
