Game 21: vs. CHC
*I’m not too surprised Corky Miller is getting a start tonight behind the plate. Devin Mesoraco has caught 35 innings in the last three days. Plus, Miller and Tony Cingrani should be familiar with one another.
Some left over notes from last night I didn’t get to:
*Shin-Soo Choo was plunked again. His 10 HBPs established a new club record for one month. It’s the most HBP for any player in a calendar month since Craig Biggio had 10 in August 1997.
*Never before Monday, since 1900, had Reds pitchers produced five straight games of at least 10 strikeouts. Well, they have now.
