#REDS BASELINE ITEMS FOR AUGUST 11

Congratulations to Jay Bruce, who on Monday night in San Diego, belted his 200th Major League home run!

Here’s where Bruce ranks among Reds home run leaders…

Joe Sichi, 19, of Fallbrook, CA caught Bruce’s 200th home run ball and returned it to Jay following the game. Here he is posing with the Reds right fielder…

For those wondering if the Reds will see Johnny Cueto on the mound in Cincinnati later this month (Reds vs. KC 8/18-8/19), it tentatively appears Johnny Beisbol will miss the Reds by one day. Quick math suggests that Cueto will start against the Red Sox on August 20.  That of course could change.

Congratulations to Tom James, who’s been randomly selected as the winner of yesterday’s Twitter contest!

We’ll have another give-away this week, so stay tuned!
