ST Game 30: Reds 4, Indians 10

W: Pino (1-0) L: Arroyo (1-4)


The Cincinnati Reds (12-16-2) aren’t exactly hitting their stride as Opening Day approaches, especially their starting pitchers.

It was Bronson Arroyo’s turn to suck–isn’t it always– against the Cleveland Indians (19-9). He allowed 10 runs in 4 innings, which is dreadful. And it doesn’t make it all that much better when I let you know that only 5 of those runs were earned. He topped off his crappy pitching with a throwing error during the score-tastic 3rd inning. Arroyo did allow 11 hits and 3 walks in those 4 innings of “work”, so he clearly had no control. If only there were a time of year for pitchers to work on such things.

The Reds did have a lead for the barest of moments thanks to a Brandon Phillips “Rally-Killer” in the 2nd inning. Jonny Gomes, Miguel Cairo, and Paul Janish drove in the other runs in the losing effort.

    We can always expect one or two outings like this from Arroyo during the year. On the bright side, the Reds don’t play the Blue Jays this year, so we don’t have to experience another of those disasters.

  2. Rocktman65 says:

    I sure hope they do better against the Indians in interleague play than they have during ST.

  3. Zeldink says:

    Yeah, I would prefer the Reds to actually beat the Indians at least once during the season, too.

  4. Amanda says:

    I like that the Reds are tipping their spring training hand to the Indians now instead of the division rival Pirates. I also like that they’re actually playing a real major league team now.

  5. Rocktman65 says:

    The Reds have long had a problem with the Pirates, and don’t even get started about the Dodgers.
