ABOUT LAST NIGHT…TODAY'S LINEUP
The Redlegs pushed across just 2 runs on 3 hits and fell to the Indians, 8-2. Brandon Phillips drove in both of the Reds’ runs with a single in the 1st and an RBI groundout in the 6th. Bronson Arroyo allowed 5 runs on 8 hits in 3.2 innings to suffer the loss (1bb, 2k). Cleveland’s Fausto Carmona gave up 1 run on 2 hits in 4.0 innings to earn the victory (2bb, 3k). The Reds will look to exact revenge against the Indians this afternoon, as the two teams square off again at Goodyear Ballpark at 1:05pm (4:05pm EST).
All proceeds from last night’s game were donated to the Southwest Valley Family YMCA based in Goodyear.
Last night’s pre-game ceremonies
Last night’s Better Off Red Question of the Game: If Todd Frazier and Johnny Cueto formed a professional wrestling tag-team, what would be their ring name?
Diane Schuman and Tom Schuman from the West Side of Cincinnati
Tom: “I was thinking something like the ‘Utility Changeup’ but we’ll go with ‘The Infield Hook.'”
Ron Whaley and his wife Amanda Whaley from Cincinnati
Ron: “Well, I’d have to call Cueto ‘Johnny Ace’ and Frazier ‘Tee-Fraze’ and together they’d be ‘Moneyball.'”
Once I figure out what’s wrong with my camera, I’ll have more photos and a new Better Off Red Question of the Game from Goodyear today.
