Jay Bruce had 2 home runs in the first two innings of the game, accounting for a career high 4 RBI, but the Reds still lost the game 9-5. Adam Dunn accounted for the other run with a solo blast, also in the second inning.
Daryl Thompson gave up 7 runs in 4 1/3 innings and then got sent down to AAA Louisville today. The Reds have seen enough.
After losing two of three games to the Pirates, the Reds welcome the Nationals to town tonight for the 4th of July holiday. Yipee.
