Here's a switch: Logan retires two lefties

6/22/2011

And pretty good ones, too. Just a couple of hours after Joe Girardi seemed to give away his title of "Lefty Specialist'' to David Robertson, a righty, Boone Logan came on in relief of Brian Gordon to retire both reigning NL MVP Joey Votto --who is 0-for-9 so far in this series -- on a groundout, and then struck out Jay Bruce in the sixth. Clearly not wanting to push his luck, Girardi then pulled Logan in favor of Cory Wade to pitch to righty Johnny Gomes. Reds still leading, 4-1.
