This was one of the best wins of the year. Not just because Jay Bruce had one of his best games as a pro. The Reds are now just a 1 and 1/2 out of first place before the most important road trip since I was in high school; and they’re believing they can return from it in first place.
Bronson Arroyo threw yet another sparkling start at the opposition, throwing the complete game and earning his 7th win. He has more wins in baseball not named Roy Halladay or Zack Greinke. I have to say, the guy has surprised me. His teammates must really love him. They score him runs and play defense behind him.
