Volquez Impressive in First Start

Edinson Volquez followed up his strong spring with a nice outing to begin his 2008 campaign. Against a tough Philadelphia lineup, Volquez gave up just 1 run in 5 1/3 innings while striking out 8. Volquez was cruising until the 6th when he got into trouble by giving up hits to Chase Utley & Pat Burrell. The Reds went to the bullpen and they were able to close out Volquez's line by allowing just one of his runners to score. He was consistently in the high 90s all game.
