A fine day in Southern Cal
You can’t beat the sunny weather in Los Angeles, and the view from the press box at Dodger Stadium is about as good as it gets. This is one of the oldest ballparks in the league now, the clubhouse is cramped but it’s still one of my favorite places to watch a game.
*Jay Bruce is 7-for-15 on the road trip with two homers and three RBIs.
*The Reds’ 3 1/2-game lead entering tonight is their largest since 5/19/02 when they had a four-game lead
*All-time vs. the Dodgers since 1900, the Reds are 999-1,040.
*According to the Elias Spurts Bureau, LHP Travis Wood last night became only the third Reds rookie in the last 25 years to win four consecutive starts. Lance Davis in 2001 Tim Pugh in 1992 were the others.
