The Reds are still undefeated in the Jay Bruce era. Once again, we made the trip up I-71 and went to work dog-assed tired because we wanted to see the boy wonder in action again. The Deal (Bruce) rewarded us by roping the ball all over the park again, and becoming the first player since 1977 to begin a career reaching base 6 times in a row.
On this night, other players were the story as well. Joey Votto had 3 more hits, as did Jerry Hairston. Our buddy Dave Ross, believe it or not; had 2 hits and 4 RBI. Bronson Arroyo allowed only 3 hits and 1 earned run. The Reds knocked Tom Gorzelanny out of the game after 2/3 of an inning, putting 6 runs up in the 1st.
We drank some beers in the parking garage, and on the trip down. First time we’ve done that in a while. The Big Red Smokey dogs are so bad for the diet, but yet so good all at the same time.
It was a beautiful night for baseball, and we’re glad we made the trip on consecutive weeknights. We just hope the Reds can continue to keep it rolling.
