Final: Red Sox 4 Reds 3 (12 innings) Boxscore
*Record: 15-17
*10th 1-run loss of season for Reds.
*Grady Sizemore, figures, delivered a game-winning drive off the Green Monster in the bottom of the 12th to score David Ortiz. Logan Ondrusek, entering his 2nd inning of work, took the loss.
*Paging Sean Marshall, paging Sean Marshall.....RHP Ondrusek pitched to LH Sizemore with 2 on and 0 out in 12th? Last time Marshall pitched?: April 30....5 days, and twice in last 11 days.
*It could have been worse, Carlton Fisk could have pinch-hit and homered in the 12th.
*Bullpen had given Reds 5 scoreless innings heading to the 12th, after 6 scoreless innings in Milwaukee.
*Homer Bailey pitched 6 innings, 5 H, 3 R, 5 H, 5 BB.
*10 hits, at least one hit from all positions players but Neftali Soto.
2 hits Phillips, Cozart and Schumaker.
*BP 2 hits, BB, R
*Heisey 1 for 6
*Cozart batting average at .204, 1st time over .200 this season.
*Billy Hamilton, bad hand an all, PH for Soto and stayed in game as DH? Hamilton bunted both AB's.
*Reds 3 for 10 w/RISP, left 10 on base.
*Reds failed turn DP in 1st when there was confusion on who was covering 2B with the shift. Should have been BP's cover.
B1: Napoli RBI 1B, 1-0 Red Sox
T2: Schumaker RBI 1B, 1-1
B3: Napoli BB with bases loaded, 2-1 Red Sox, Sizemore RBI 1B, 3-1 Red Sox
T8: Frazier RBI 1B, 3-2 Red Sox, Ludwick sacrifice fly 3-3

Missed chance:

T6: Phillips BB, Ludwick BB, Schumaker DP.
T9th: Cozart 1B, Hamilton bunted to 2nd, Barnhart flied out/looked like HR when left bat, Heisey reached bunt 1B, Votto fouled out to 3rd. (Last time he fouled out to 3rd?)

Homer Bailey Stats with/without Ryan Hanigan since 2010:
           With Hanigan         Without Hanigan
2010:  14 GS   3.24 ERA.     5 GS   8.42 ERA.
2011:  14 GS   3.21 ERA.     8 GS   6.80 ERA.
2012:  10 GS   3.20 ERA.    23 GS  3.89 ERA.
2013:  20 GS   2.71 ERA.    13 GS  4.93 ERA.
2014:   ----------------- --       7 GS   5.36 ERA.
Joey Votto Career batting with RISP:
2007-2012:  .351/.478/.620  OPS  1.098.
2013-2014:  .276/.478/.441  OPS  0.919.
Votto's splits with RISP his first 6 seasons were nothing short of amazing.
If you compare Votto's splits with RISP the past 2 seasons with his first 6 seasons, despite OBP being exactly the same, he has been much less productive/dangerous.
