The boys busted out offensively — and (gasp!) even went 5 for 12 w/RISP — but what got lost in their 15-hit performance tonight was that Brad Penny gave them another solid outing. It wasn’t terribly efficient — he threw 114 pitches in just six innings — but it was good enough, and he is now 5-0 with a 1.91 ERA in Great American Ball Park since it opened in 2003. (I have just never gotten over the fact that the Reds insist on making ballpark two words). That is the fifth-best ERA by any pitcher who has made at least three starts here. … Dodgers to go 8-11, but still too early in the evening to know how it will affect the standings because the Giants and Snakes are playing now. Pods and Rox both lost.
