Hammerin' Janish strikes again

Holy guacamole. Paul Janish had a hell of a game today. The pride of Rice University went 3 for 3 with a walk, a home run, and 4 RBIs. And his usual sweet defense.

The Sports Network headline:

Janish leads Reds to series win over Pirates

Brendannukah at Red Reporter put it this way:

The Invisible Touch went 3-3 with a walk, a home run, four RBI, and reached in and grabbed right hold of our hearts.

That's a reference to Janish being "The Invisible Man" the past two years. I wondered if Janish had run over Dusty Baker's cat or something, but as someone pointed out, it seems to be the way Dusty treats his "super sub" backups. He's afraid he'll need them later, so he's reluctant to put them in. Now Miguel Cairo is the super-sub, and he's the one left on the bench.

And Reds beat writer John Fay interviewed Janish after the game.

Curiously, it was exactly a month ago that Janish hit his last home run. I remember because it was the 4th of July. He should start the 4th of every month!
