Reds play home run derby during last night's winning season-clinching game

With the first inning scoreless, Arizona started the second not so quietly when Miguel Montero and Ryan Church hit back to back home runs. That though, was all it took to wake up Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo who pitched 107 pitches in 6 innings. Those were the only 2 runs allowed with only 7 hits total no walks and a season-high 8 strikeouts. Bottom of the 2nd, Jay Bruce and Drew Stubbs "in your faced" the D-backs with back to back home runs of their own. Score now 2-2. More excitement happened in the bottom of the 3rd when Joey Votto score his 34th homer of the year, and Bruce homered again this time with 3rd baseman, Scott Rolen on 1st. Score now 5-2. In the 5th, Orlando Cabrera hit his first homer since May 5 and Bruce broke his bat to score Cabrera in the 7th. Final score 7-2. The Reds are now 82-62 7 games above the St. Louis Cardinals who, by the way, lost to the Chicago Cubs last night, creating their first winning season since 2000.

It was the most exciting game I had been to, ever.

I have no idea why they even put Jordan Smith in to pitch, he walked 2 batters and was tossed from the game as he was being relieved and booed off the field. Pics from my view to come!

The next question will be when and where will the Reds clinch the division? Good God I pray its in GABP.
