Reds fail uniform spelling 101?

The first 'I' in Cincinnati was missing on the uniform front of pitcher Aaron Harang Tuesday night in Busch Stadium according to the DAYTON DAILY NEWS and the spelling appeared: "Cncinnati."

These days the Cincinnati Reds can't even buy a vowel.

By the third inning, the 'I' magically appeared — Harang put on a fresh jersey — but it was after the St. Louis Cardinals scored three runs in the second inning en route to a 5-1 victory.

"That's the last time I wear that jersey," Harang said.

Harang wore the same jersey for the first four days of this trip, but wore a jacket on top of it so nobody noticed.

"After the first inning, I came to the dugout and saw (pitchers) Paul Wilson and Eric Milton looking at me funny," said Harang.

"What up with that?" said Wilson.

"What?" said Harang.

"Your jersey."

Said Harang, "I thought I spilled something on it but Paul said, 'Cincinnati is spelled wrong.' "

Equipment manager Rick Stowe took the blame, especially because the game was televised.

"The clubhouse guy from Arizona called me and said, 'What kindergarten did you fail?' " said Stowe. "I always check the back of the jerseys for the players' names, but never thought about the front."
