So it looks like all the bloggers were right. In the week since the Reds called up Jay Bruce–whose first initial is a homophone for his first name–the team has just won and won and won some more. Apparently, the problem was Corey Patterson all along.
A day after hitting a walk-off homer, Bruce hit his second to lead the Reds to a victory and the series sweep over the Braves. Nice revenge for the sweep the Braves handed them earlier in the year.
Next, Cincinnati travels to Philadelphia to try to improve their atrocious road record. Bronson Arroyo starts against Kyle Kendrick at 7:05pm EDT.
