Votto scratched from lineup
A new Reds lineup:
*Joey Votto was scratched because of a sinus infection.
“He has a very serious sinus infection, which is tough,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “All that hitting, base running and all that, there’s got to be some fatigue. You don’t get fatigue physically making outs. You get fatigue hitting and running the bases.”
*Drew Stubbs was pleased that he got his 20th homer last night. With 25 steals, he’s a 20/20 player this year. He’s also one of six Major League center fielders to reach 20 homers.
“Coming into the season, I try not to set any statistical goals but one thing I kind of had in mind was to try and reach 20 home runs,” Stubbs said. “I thought it’d be an attainable goal but also a challenge. Getting that last night was pretty specials.”
*Reds catchers lead the NL in hitting at .291.
*The Reds’ next win will give Baker 1,400 for his managerial career.
And since I have it, here is the Milwaukee lineup, which includes former Reds OF Chris Dickerson.
