Baker welcomes off-day after no-hitter

Baker welcomes off-day after no-hitter

|
PHILADELPHIA -- Coming off Wednesday's National League Division Series Game 1 no-hitter by Phillies ace Roy Halladay, the conventional thinking would be the Reds wanted to get right back to playing on Thursday.

Not Reds manager Dusty Baker, who welcomed Thursday's off-day before resuming with Game 2 on Friday.

"It was a little strange," Baker said. "It's like you're starting all over again. Usually you complain about too many off-days, but I think this off-day came on time for us. It's a day removed from the no-hitter. You don't have to hear about it as much. You don't have to see it as much. It'll probably be on the video board. It's over. It's like starting Game 1 all over again."
