I did watch the scoring on my phone to see that Jay Bruce and Drew Stubbs keyed the offense on yet another night. Jay Bruce had three hits and Stubbs homered and drove in four runs.
Bronson Arroyo was very good against the Astros again, he picked up his 17th win of the year going 7 innings, striking out four, allowing only one run. He’s now 17-10 on the season and ready for the opening game of the playoffs. He’s the ace. He’s been the stopper. And he’ll get the ball in the biggest game the Reds have played in 15 years; I expect him to go toe to toe with Roy Halladay, I really do.
This has nothing to do with the game but be sure to check out Better Off Red for a great post about the clinch the other night.
