Reds Win Rubber game

Well when is the last time we can say the Reds won a series on the road, I don't care if it was against the Pirates. After a great pitching performance by Johnny Cueto the Reds actually won a road series. Cueto only went five and I think it was one of the few good decisions Dusty Baker has made this season, to get him out of there while he still had a great pitching line. Johnny only gave up one run while fanning seven in his five innings. It was definitely a step forward for Cueto.

On another note Chris Dickerson's first week in the major leagues has been pretty good. Of his four big league hits all have gone for extra bases. Chris has three doubles and a triple, not a bad start.

Cordero came in the ninth to pick up his 23rd save and the 200th of his career. The Reds did execute a prefect suicide squeeze in the top of the ninth to give them a two run lead and a little breathing room for Cordero.
