MO' BETTER REDS:

Peña plays the hero in HR frenzy (John Fay, 6/09/05, Cincinnati Enquirer)

Wily Mo Peña hasn't checked with Reds chief operating officer John Allen yet, but he'd like tonight to be Wily Mo Bobblehead Night II.

It's hard to blame him. Peña hit two home runs, including a two-out, two-run walk-off shot, to lift the Reds to an 11-9 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before a crowd of 32,019 on - you guessed it - Wily Mo Peña Bobblehead Night at Great American Ball Park.

"I want another bobblehead night," Peña said. "I want to be a hero again."

The reason that there hasn't been much news about Wily Mo is that he was on the DL for a month 5/3 -- 6/7.
