Cheap foamy beer night ... the best thing to happen to our pitching until Joe Inglett
Tonight was cheap foamy beer night at my house. Unfortunately, it nearly turned out to be the highlight of my game watching experience.
It was one of those nights where the announcers earn their money--cause there's nothing to say. When Rock starts to talk about the moon's phases, you know that the Brewers' chances left with the setting sun. It's the eighth inning, and BA is waxing poetic about Prince's beard and how he couldn't stop staring at it when he interviewed him before the game.
Oh wait, they just showed sombrero guy and he did appear to be swaying and hiccuping. That's a win for me. All is not lost.
I take that back. Joe Inglett, utility IF/OF, who started in RF in place of Corey Hart, is now pitching the ninth. Wait, he isn't sucking. He's doing really well. WHAT? Inglett threw six pitches total, five for strikes. Three up and three down.
Joe Inglett, this can of the High Life is for you! Go get 'em tomorrow--2 out of 3 would not be bad.
Reds 12, Brewers 4
