This Is NOT a Typo...

Cincinnati (0) 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 5 1
PHILLIES (10) 1 1 4 0 0 0 6 x 22 21 0

And I thought the fireworks were scheduled for this Thursday after the game. But seriously folks, the Philllies completely steamrolled all over the Reds last night (7/6) by that score. In their last two games, the Redlegs have been outscored 32-4! Things were so bad, in the bottom of the eighth, they rolled out the Jayson Stark Memorial Mystery Pitcher of the Week, reserve infielder Tim Janish, who had previously surrendered five runs this season in a mop-up role. he gave up six, including a Jayson Werth Grand Salami. It also managed to bring up a Jayson Stark Memorial Box Score Line of the Week for starter Johnny Cuerto:

2/3 IP, 5 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 2 HR, 1 HBP, 49 pitches, post-game ERA 3.45 (he had a 2.69 ERA coming into the game).

As for Janish (shown above):

1 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 Grand Slam HR, 29 pitches, post-game ERA 49.50 (his ERA was 45.00 coming into the night).

For the full details on this carnage (if you're a Reds fan), I refer you to Fire Andy Reid Now! for more. BTW, guys, save a few runs for tonight (7/7), JFein will fill in for me as I will be at the game.


  1. Just JC's luck that tonights game will be 2-1 barn burner.

  2. If it means anything, JC was at the only Phils home game in June that they won......

  3. Thank you for bringing that up.
