Manny Plunked, Dodgers Retaliate With Rout: Dodgers 12, Reds 3

The story with this game will naturally — and understandably — be Manny getting hit in the hand by a pitched ball from a developing Homer Bailey; it's hard to imagine it was intentional, though. Still, Manny had hit an RBI triple in his prior appearance, his first as a Dodger. Luckily, x-rays turned out negative, and all he's got is a bone bruise that will keep him out of the lineup for a few days. Given how well the Dodgers hit in his absence the first time, it's nothing to worry about.

Bailey really had nothing, and threw fastballs exclusively all night, which for him was brief, going only 2.2 innings. As Vinny said, you can't win that way, and maybe some day he'll be a good pitcher, but not last night. The Dodgers pretty much schooled him and the Reds, getting nine runs (six earned) off him, one off a wild pitch in the third; and after he left, even Randy Wolf contributed offensively with an RBI double in the fifth. It wasn't a good day for Reds pitching.
