Today's game in Chicago was depressing in a few ways. Losing, of course, is always sad, but all I got to see of the game was some Cub get on base in the first and then Javy fly out to end the game. The final score was 4 to 1. The Reds had a grand total of four hits. So stark a contrast to yesterday it hurts.

Keeping with the topics of contrast and hurt, when checking on the Reds official site, I saw two stories of interest. Story number one: "Griffey Hopes to Keep Rolling." Story number two: "Griffey Exits Early With Stiffness in Knee." I suppose it shouldn't surprise me, being Griffey and all, but that just sucks. He's listed as day to day, so I guess we could see him back soon. Freel came into the game playing center field for him. There's a good mark. We got to see Freel and Womack at the same time.

Five errors on the day. Three of them from Encarnacion. He seems to like the triple error days.

At least it sounds like Claussen looked good today. And, if the games in the series were cumulative, the Reds would still be winning 10 to 6.
