Pods manager Gomez may have to put Thing in the line-up.
Poor Padres. They have lost their last three games by a combined score of 26-1, scoring their only run on a suicide squeeze. 

Lee May of the Reds finally hit a home run, but he didn't use either of his 1's. He rolled a 6 with a man on third. No matter! He had a single, double, homer, 3 runs scored and 4 rbi as the Rhinelanders swept 2 from the division-leading Dodgers.

Love your use of Rhinelander to refer to Cincinnati. Over the Rhine is one of my favorite singing groups so I was proud to ge the reference right away!
