Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….

FINAL
Cincinnati 6
New York (NL) 5

W: L. Ondrusek (5-5)
L: T. Byrdak (2-1)
S: F. Cordero (36)
BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–Chris Heisey was 3-5 with two runs scored, 3 RBI, and his 18th homer…plus an outstanding defensive play in center field.

–Brandon Phillips, Devin Mesoraco, and Edgar Renteria all doubled.

NEGATIVES
–Homer’s performance was not good, allowing four runs in five innings (on nine hits and a walk). He did strike out seven.

–Another shaky save by CoCo. Jose Arredondo stunk up the stadium.

NOT-SO-RANDOM THOUGHTS
–A win’s a win. Let’s hope for two more before we put this 2011 season to rest.

–Chris Heisey is playing himself into the 2012 conversation, especially when one compares his season to the struggles we’ve seen from Drew Stubbs.
