    Wow! That may be the most foolish Votto has looked at the plate all year!

    Diamond strikes out Votto with 3 pitches -- Reds' announcers are very impressed with Diamond.

    Diamond has certainly handled Votto today.

    This is another reason I like pitcher's duels - faster game pace. Six full innings in 81 minutes.

    Is it me, or are close plays at the plate awesome? I used to love how aggressive the Twins used to be running the bases to make teams make a perfect throw like Dozier just made. Of course, that was in the dome when they had a ton of speed on the team.

    Terrible baserunning by the Reds gets Diamond out of the inning. Diamond has thrown only 60 pitches through 6 innings.

    Sigh. This team can't even get lucky with a bouncing ball.

    I love it too.

    Did anybody else cringe, just a bit, when Mauer had to make a play at the plate? Nice clean play, though, both ways.

    Nice play by Reds second baseman to get Willingham at the plate. Not a great slide by Willingham, who seemed surprised.

    I agree, he could have scored with a little better slide. Span is excellent at hitting the corners on slides.

    2nd and 3rd, nobody out with Morneau and Plouffe due up, very disappointing to only come away with 1 run.

    Personally I would love to see if he could handle getting run over. I don't want him to get Posey'd but if it was a Lonnie Smith/Brian Harper collision I'd be all for it.

    Mauer looked pretty clumsy on that play at the plate, again. Sticks his left leg out instead of blocking the plate. He had like 5 seconds to set up there too.

    Tough luck for the Twins on the Plouffe AB. Hit it hard but perfect bounce and nice play by Phillips.

    Diamond is throwing strikes and trusting his stuff. A complete game seems possible here.

    Ugh! With Dozier it seems to be 1.25 steps forward, 1 step back.

    Young player. Like I said with Plouffe when he was making mistakes at SS, the game is much faster and a single mental lapse is magnified.

    But Diamond makes it moot by getting the final out. If Diamond keeps pitching like this, the one run lead may hold up.
