All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

You kind of knew this was coming. The Pirates lost the first two games in the series. Tonight, it was Phil Dumatrait on the mound: the pitcher the Reds threw away last year.

It was Cy Dumatrait who showed up tonight. Just as I predicted last October. Andy Phillips was 0 for 3 in his first start as a Red, but no one else hit much either. The Reds had only four hits the entire night (two of them courtesy of Jerry Hairston, Jr., the right-handed hitter who was called up while Andy was on the shelf with that hamstring problem). Even phenom Jay Bruce was hitless.

Well, tomorrow is another day. The Reds play the Braves next. Glavine vs. Volquez should be an interesting matchup.
