Game 77: Reds 8, Indians 1

New, comments


After taking steps forward pretty much from his big league debut, today was a big step backwards for David Huff. And despite having Asdrubal Cabrera back in the lineup, the Indians offense was held in check by Reds starter Micah Owings.

Since Grady Sizemore first went on the Disabled List, Ben Francisco has gotten regular playing time, whether in center field, or when Trevor Crowe was in center, in left field. Now that Sizemore's back, he's been given a bit a reprieve with the trade of Mark DeRosa. But you'd have to think that Matt LaPorta (hitting .301/.370/.522 in AAA) will be coming up shortly to play every day, because Francisco is hitting .138/.213/.175 in June, and is dragging down the bottom of the order.
