String stops at 18 for Belisle

Matt Belisle retired the first 18 batters he faced before Josh Anderson ground a single into left to start the seventh.

The Reds lead 2-0 on Edwin Encarnacion's two-run homer in the first.

It was def. a heck a start for Belisle. This must be the talent that I hear Belisle has, but I dont believe he has the mentallity to use the talent. For instance he gave up the first hit tonight and then let the bases get loaded eventually scoring 2 runs that inning. Nonetheless it was a great, shall I say perfect, start to the game and I hope we see more of this.

Question 1: Is there a league rule that Majewski has to give up a run(s) every time he steps on the mound?
Question 2: Is there any chance he won't be on the team next year?

Great outing for Matt.

But the best part of the game did not happen on the field. I have weekday season seats out by the visiting bullpen. Last three nights out there Woody Williams has been doing some bargaining with the fans. He asked for two bags of peanuts and large pop from a fan each night. In exchange he had all of the Astros bullpen sign a baseball and he gavethe ball to the fans when they brought back the peanuts and pop. Each party came away very happy.

Just one of the many things that happens at the games that makes it worth going down. Woody Williams has my eternal respect.

See what you miss out on sometimes John.

I like that about Williams. Remember David Wells talking about his adventures in the Blue Jays bullpen? Sounds like that's the section to sit in for entertainment when the game isn't going your way

And yes, I think we've seen enough of Gary Majewski. I have total sympathy for him----he's the one who's suffered most in that disaster of a trade. But eventually, Krivsky must realize no matter how good Majewski may be on paper, on the mound he's getting shelled and the fans are not getting convinced
