The Reds took two out of three from the Cards this weekend to end up in first place. Rachel and I ended up heading down to the park in spite of some bad weather predicted. We scalped a couple of pretty good seats up under the over hang and stayed dry the whole time. We weren't in our seats so, of course, the Reds won.
It was a great game. On the way over Rachel decided if they won she would go to the Reds shop and replace her old, faded Freel t-shirt with a Rolen t-shirt, especially if he hit a home run. Which he did, in the first inning. Arroyo was great and the Reds got a bunch of timely hits to win 7-2. Here is a fun write-up of the event. Seeing the board change in right field was awesome.
