Brandon Phillips hit a leadoff double and scored the go-ahead run on Ryan Freel's two-out infield single, running on Corey Koskie's throw to first which was hurried because of Freel's speed. He stole that run; he had to, for Ben "I'm baaack!" Sheets was on the top of his game. Phillips is turning out to be so much more than we could have ever hoped for.
Of course, the bigger star of the game was Bronson "Lead us to the chosen land" Arroyo, who pitched 8 innings of brilliant baseball, only screwing up on a homerun to lead off the game. He added 8 Ks to his line, further causing us to say Wily Who? Thank you, Mr. Krivsky!
Unfortunately, the Reds, who are tied for the most wins in baseball right now, still get no respect. Nats announcers Tweedledum and Tweedledee said with the Cubbies loss of Derrek "I hate goats" Lee, the NL Central only has two teams competing this year. You'd think a team that leads the world in homeruns with 32 would at least open some eyes.
