Homer Bailey > God? SECOND INNING

The Reds got him a run back so we're all even.

A leadoff walk to Delluci on 5 pitches. Not pretty. If there's one thing you can give Bailey it's that he challenges hitters and goes right at them, throwing strikes. Not in this case, though I guess we can let The Savior allow a guy a base-on-balls every now and then. Would like to see another K, though. Get Sizemore back up here.

Barfield comes precariously close to the wall, but Adam Dunn makes the snag and keeps Delluci at first base.

2 balls to Rouse and it's becoming habitual. Does the strike zone shrink from Triple A to the props? You'd think not. Full count now and Rouse mercifully flies out to Hopper right in the middle of the field.

Bailey is working the down-and-away corner like a madman and he's been throwing a lot of balls because of it, but he throws 3 straight nice looking strikes down in the corner, forcing Lee to swing at a grounder that is played by Gonzo.

1 inning, 1 BB, 0 runs
2 innings, 1 K, 1 BB, 2 hits, 1 run
