A Big Victory For The Cincinnati Reds

Last night, the Cincinnati Reds defeated Central Division leading St. Louis Cardinals, 6-5. The Reds had the lead twice during the game, only to give it up. One special note. Chirs Heisey blasted two home runs and made a leaping catch to rob Cardinals Albert Pujols of a homer. Okay, Dusty and Walt. Stop the insanity. Start Chris Heisey, okay?

Anyway, it was a special day for Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips. (Pictured) The Reds were down to their last out in the bottom of the ninth. Brandon Phillips started last year's controversy by calling the Cardinals "little bitches" which by the way is true. Here's my article with a Denver Post link detailing why it's true. So you know the Cardinals hate him. But I digress. Rookie Reds shortstop Zack Cozart hit a single to keep the inning alive. And then Brandon Phillips hit a screamer as Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman put it over the left field fence. WALK OFF BABY. The Reds looked dead for the the first half of the season. A win like this launches a team to the become division champs. Here's the story with video.
