Miscellany: The Reds will announce their remaining September call-ups once Triple-A Louisville's final regular season game ends this afternoon.... Pedro Martinez is making his season debut after recovering from rotator cuff surgery. He entered today's game two strikeouts shy of becoming the 15th pitcher in major league history to record 3,000 strikeouts. He struck out Edwin Encarnacion for No. 2,999 to start the second and got Reds pitcher Aaron Harang swinging on an 87 mph pitch for No. 3,000 that ended the second inning.

Absolutely incredible. John, how can Mackanin bench Keppinger? Or is this crap coming from Krivsky?

Jay Bruce hasn't played in any of this weekend's three games for the Bats, and Joey Votto is sitting out today.

you dont pinch hit jason ellison in any situation.. i dont care what the score is and you especially dont pinch hit with him with a runner in scoring position when you have the chance to cut the lead to two runs.. and when you have kepp and cantu on the bench.. I dont even think Narron would have done that..he would of used castro or moeller lol

This may come as a shock, but I agree with what Mackanin said about the Reds being as good - or at least having as much talent - as the Cardinals. Doing the "little things" can make a bid difference. The again, so would having a good pitching staff.

Pete will always be remembered, after his short stay here, as the manager who benched Honus Wagner.

Good to see Ellison(.056)getting a chance to hit while the game was still close when you have Keppinger, Cantu and Hopper available. smart move saving all three for later in the game.
