Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….
W: R. Wolf (13-9)
L: B. Arroyo (8-12)
S: J. Axford (43)
–Joey Votto went 3-4 with three RBI. That guy is simply a joy to watch every single night. A great, great player.
–Brandon Phillips had a couple of hits.
–Bronson Arroyo gave up 5 runs in 6.1 innings. More importantly, he surrendered four more homers, bringing his season total to 44 HR allowed, and shattering Eric Milton’s club record.
–That was just an ugly game and I don’t even want to think about it anymore.
–Bronson Arroyo has no respect for Eric Milton.
