Reds 6, Cubs 5

Did you think it was gone? I did. Jeff Brantley did. David Weathers didn't.

“I know what home run sounds like,” Weathers said. “He hit it good but he got off the end of the bat a little bit. I thought (Norris Hopper) was going to catch it or it was going to land in that basket. Then I was going to out there and take a blow torch to that basket.”

Hopper caught Mike Fontenot's drive to right with back against the ivy. Three farther or two feet higher and the Cubs win 7-6.

It was a wild and wacky one.

Aaron Harang gave up four hits, walked one and struck out seven.

Carlos Zambrano gave up 13 hits, walked two and struck out none.

But Harang gave up five runs to Zambrano's six.

Three Reds got thrown out on the bases. They Reds loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth and didn't score. It all led to the nail-biter ending.

Why did the Reds demote Johnny Cueto to AA?

He pitched six innings Sunday for Louisville. As far as I know, they didn't.
