Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….
W: A. Simon (5-2)
L: B. Badenhop (0-3)
–Jay Bruce hit a walkoff homer in the bottom of the tenth inning to give the Reds the victory.
–Bronson Arroyo scattered twelve hits, but only surrendered two earned runs in seven and two-thirds innings. The old guy dropped his ERA to 3.27.
–Ryan Hanigan had a couple of hits, the only Red with more than one.
–Aroldis Chapman and Alfredo Simon each pitched a perfect inning.
–The Redlegs were pretty sloppy today. Zack Cozart made two errors, and Todd Frazier committed one of his own.
–Dusty’s in-game strategies continue to baffle and that’s all I will say about that.
–That was the first time all season the Reds committed three errors in one game.
–The Reds went over one million in attendance for the season; this is the earliest point in the season that the Reds have reached that mark since GAB opened.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
