Brewers 5, Reds 2: Arroyo Steps Up His Game



No doubt pumped up from playing loud music in the clubhouse, Bronson Arroyo (0-2) allowed all of the Brewers (10-6) runs in the less than six innings he pitched for the Reds (7-10). Can’t blame that one on the bullpen.

Ben Sheets (3-0) got the win, but pulled up lame before the 6th. Who had April 18 in the Sheets injury pool? Actually, that’s a bit earlier than I expected.

A very hairy Eric Gagne (S 5) got the save for the Brewers, coming in to stop the Reds only scoring inning of the day. It’s a good thing the Reds did score those 2 in the 9th, otherwise it might not have looked close.

The same two teams play again today at 1:10pm EDT with Jeff Suppan battling against rookie phenom Johnny Cueto.
