Aaron Harang.....Complete Game Shutout...... Blanking The Cards

Aaron Harang is back, If you still wondered if Harang was back to his old self, tonight's game should have put that dog to bed. On 'Bark In The Park Night' Aaron threw a compete game shutout at those dogs, um I mean Cardinals. Harang has been the hard luck starter this season, getting the least amount of run support in the National League among all pitchers. Aaron scattered six hits while fanning four and didn't walk a single batter tonight. All the offense he would need was a solo home run by Andy Phillips in the bottom of the fourth, but the Reds weren't done yet. The next man up Jay Bruce also went deep and I mean deep (438') to straight away center field for back to back jacks for the reds. Hey they still weren't done, two outs later Paul Janish hit his first Major League home run to give the Reds three for the inning and that was more than enough for Aaron on this night.

It's late in the year but these young Reds are having fun and winning some ballgames. This was the fourth straight win for them and also the fourth straight series they have won. September has been a good month as the Reds are winners of seven of their last nine games.

On another note, staying with the theme of last night's twenty year anniversary of Tom Browning's perfect game. Tonight was the twenty fifth anniversary of Johnny Bench night at Riverfront Stadium, where Bench actually hit a home run on his night. Yes I do remember that night, not sure who gave up that shot but it was a very special night for probably the best catcher to every play the game. I just can't imagine hitting a home run on a night they set aside to honor your career.

They include off, low, high, and pulse mode. The unit has dimensions of 15 3/8 x 23 5/8 x 11 inches and weighs around 48 pounds. If you damage the motor you will have to replace it too and that would change a $25.00 repair into a $150.00+ repair. It will even grind wheat into flour.
