Reds won 10-4 over the Bucs today. As I mentioned earlier, Big Rob Stratton hit his third homer in two days. Other notable performances:

–Perhaps most importantly, Brandon Claussen pitched well, with three innings of shutout ball.
–Adam Dunn had two doubles in 3 at-bats.
–Joe Randa and Jason LaRue had multi-hit games.
–Jacob Cruz hit a 3-run homer.
–David Weathers and Danny Graves each pitched shutout innings, but Kent Mercker was not effective, giving up three runs in just an inning.

Finally, in the SS competition:

Felipe Lopez 1-3, batted leadoff.
Rich Aurilia did not play.
