Votto & Bruce Power Reds To Big Win

SEVEN HOME RUNS!!!!!!!!! What a night at the ball park as me and my co-writer son-in-law and daughter and Ethan and Ella decided to take in one more game before Great American Ball Park closes for the winter. Jay Bruce and Joey Votto as I assumed and the Reds official site confirms, are friends on and off the field. But when the game starts they will admit to being competitors on the same team. Both blasted two home runs last night, giving the rookie sluggers twenty-one apiece. I think Reds fans will have plenty to cheer about in the coming years as these two mature into All-Stars. When the dusted finally settled last night the scoreboard read Reds 11 Brewers 2.

Jerry Hairston Jr., Jolbert Cabrera and Andy Phillips each added a home run to make the Reds total seven on the night.

On a night when it looked like the only thing to talk about was offense, Ramon Ramirez won his first career game throwing six really good innings. Ramirez scattered seven hits and only allowed two runs while fanning five. Yes it was a good night at the ball park and there is only three more home games to be played so get out to GABP and see these exciting young Reds as they audition for 2009.
