9:33 pm
might throw a breaking ball. so he has to be making mental adjustments and apply. that's what's going to make him a good big league pitcher. >> johnny: rob, it doesn't take the scouts long to pick up on tendencies. >> johnny: no it doesn't. the key word here is technology, word gets around quicker. in my day the guy would have to see you, send a report maybe by mail, whatever, pony express, but you know, now it's instantaneous. you know, there could be somebody sitting there, you know, got a video phone watching this kid throw right now. i mean that's how quick it is. so, you know, ross and all the new generation of pitchers really have to concentrate hard every start, every pitch, because someone has seen what they did their last start, two starts ago when he first got called up here and five starts in, the last two starts he has
9:34 pm
had a bit of a problem, 20 hits in 9 innings. that's not just his fault. you see the approach of the reds, they are starting to take his good stuff the other way. >> johnny: yes they are. >> rob: nice. >> johnny: called third strike and there's one down in the third. >> rob: ross detwiler one of the best breaking balls on the team. you see it right there round about the outside corner, this is what you would call a back door breaking ball. now you can get shown the back door. grab some pine. >> johnny: and in that sequence to willie tavares the 2001 went up to 94 on one of his fastballs. >> 94-78, what a separation, they have got to start subtracting some pitches. maybe i'll look for the curve ball, change-up, got to watch out for some of this stuff. >> johnny: jerry hairston has been really struggling, raised
9:35 pm
his batting average from 156 up to .288, as he digs in against detwiler, over the past 29 games. hairston flied to center his first time up back in the first. reds lead 1-0 near the top of the third. good high fastball, 93 on the gun for that one. detwiler so far, 41 pitches, 25 have been for strikes. you know, cincinnati is not having a, even though they got a record rob of 29-27, they have lost 7 of their last 10 ball games. they have been having some problems too. . >> rob: well i think th bulkhead stuff, they needed inson bulkhead to come back and come back strong. whenever you have guys like joe evade oh sick on the disabled list, jay bruce struggling against lefties, 1-2 another great breaking ball right
9:36 pm
there, if your umpire is going to give you these pitches, it's a great pitch to throw, keep back during these guys until they take that to sort. >> johnny: brandon phillips. tavares went down looking at strikes. that's the third strikeout for detwiler. a bownlszing ball to guzman, easy play at first, and the reds were gone as they were in the first inning, one-two- three. we'll be back in a moment. - oh, it's on, all right. - it's on. - totally on. jimmy, it's on. - it's on. - oh, yeah, it's on. affirmative, it's on. announcer: southwest airlines announces new service out of bwi airport, with three daily nonstop flights to new york laguardia for just 49 dollars one-way starting june 28th. grab your bag. it's on. - ( ding ) - book now at

9:40 pm
mark was originally pencilled into be the starting catcher tonight, but nieves is catching ross detwiler and sometimes guys get on the same page too, don't they rob? >> yeah. i mean i was lucky enough to start rookie ball with joe and play 11 straight years with him. joe new me better than i did. in warmups he would do my delivery and stuff like that, so yeah, the more communication there is, and i don't just mean looking in for the signs and all that stuff. the more you're on the same wave lengths if that guy knows what you are going to throw before you throw it the easier it's going to be for this ball club in general. >> johnny: a shot to center field and taveras has a bead on that one. nick johnson's fly ball to center. get your family fun packs for sunday games. you can purchase the $14 upper right field terrace ticket or

9:52 pm
..283 on base percentage, 1 home run in four ribs, 13 and 26 against righties and he is hitting about 60 points high near his right. still .231. a learning icl. >> johnny:  ru, 13 againsthanders? >> rob: 13 against right- handers. so whatever they know, whatever the scouting report is against jay bruce, they are just -- he sn't made thadjustment, you know. so they are just exploiting that weakness right now. so if you make the adjustment there is no reason to go back and try to pitch whatever the scouting report is on him. he has a hole inside, a hole outside, he is young kid 22 years old. >> johnny: lookat these young guys and you have to have some guys around with experience, guys that have been there and done that and maybe
9:53 pm
they can feed off of it. you and i were talking about stbeinsigned,yo wantto makesurewhen hecome up he has some older guys who can maybe showhim how they did it and how they got to where ey a ton. is great in the bullpen, steve is going to out a lot. >> johnny: dukes has tied the ball game a >> rob: that'súgoneri d there.  . >> johnny: home run n for elijah dukes and r.b.i. number tied thi >> rob: ballhnny: homer in this ball park and t 62nd of the year r the ball club.
9:54 pm
 . >> is just some k rob: yes he would. >> johnny: got so much talent still not even tapped into. >> rob: quite raw. >> johnny: willie harris with a foul off the plate. harris struck out in the first and his on-base percentage is .382. >> rob: johnny lab none, 41 starts, detwiler, his fifth start, jordan zimmer hand hamas nine starts in the big leagues, cy he has 15, the other four. so the others don't have as many as johnny lannan. so you know when i came up i had, you know, phil gull lick son was at the major league level, you had ron robinson,
9:55 pm
tom browning had been there for many years, tom franklin had been there for many years, our pitching coach years late would be don argue lick. even the griffey seniors and dave collins and joel youngblood and guys like this, they can help you with your psyche and that's the most difficult thing i think for these young kids is when they have an issue don't always want to go to the pitching coach and go "you know what, i'm not that confident in this pitch," you don't want to be telling steve mccaty all that stuff, sometimes a teammate, it's easier to bounce it off him. i did that with joel youngblood, my first full year. i was struggling, i didn't want to go to pete rose and go "pete, i can't get them out, what do i do exactly?" >> johnny: phillips has a bead on this one and willie harris is down in the fourth inning with a little pop to second
9:56 pm
base . >> rob: here are all the young men on our ball club. >> johnny: 11 for march visit, got 9, stammen has got four, and of the wins ross and craig are still looking for their first. all five drafted or signed by this organization.  well we have got two  in the fourth. elijah dukes has tied the ball game, a bouncing ball to phillips again on to first, hernandez, the inning is over for the nats but not until they get that home run from elijah dukes. what a shot to left, home of that 377-foot sign and for dukes home run number 6 of the year and he ties the ball game at one. look forward to haven't changed.
9:57 pm
like owning a home. watching our children grow. and retiring with confidence. so whatever you're looking forward to, m&t bank is here to help you get there. m&t bank. understanding what's important.
9:58 pm
. >> johnny: our coors light freeze cam brought to you by frost tee coors light, the world's most refreshing beer. >> rob: while ross detwiler has made some adjustments. see this back door ball. freeze it right there. in about 2 seconds it's going to be strike three. here is another one. right there, tavares, phillips, frozen by the back door breaking ball. actually harrison, excuse me. but that's a great adjustment to the right-handers.
9:59 pm
earlier in the ball game, in the first lineup through the top of the order they started hitting at that, but he hasn't gotten away from it and gotten afraid. that's something steve ma catty and i have talked about, even if you give up a hit you can't go away from your best pitch. sometimes it's painful to watch but sometimes you got to stay with it. but if they hit it. >> i love his line. somebody asked him on his first day here with the ball club what's your advice to all these guys in the bullpen, he said "throw strikes" just throw strikes. okay? a line drive between the gap and left and center. willie harris will run it down, slides into second and he is safe. safefe at second. alex gonzalez with the leadoff double to start the fifth inning for cincinnati.  . >> rob: we
