Gamenotes 4-25-09 vs Atl
ALEXANDER THE GRAND: Alex Gonzalez’ RBI-single in the fourth inning of last night’s game off Javier Vazquez was hit 1,000th career hit.
WALK THIS WAY: RHP Edinson Volquez walked 5 batters in the top of the fourth inning. He is the first pitcher in the majors to walk 5 batters in an inning since Washington’s Jason Bergmann walked 5 in the top of the third inning vs the Mets on 8/13/08. He is the first Reds pitcher to do it since Ryan Dempster walked 6 batters in the bottom of the second inning on 4/30/03 at Colorado.
RED ALERT: The Reds apologize to fans who were inconvenienced or delayed entry last night because of the tickets.com system failure that affected the walkup kiosks at Great American Ball Park. Questions can be directed to (513) 765-7500.
