Break out the champagne! The Reds finally scored some runs for Aaron Harang!

Of course, Harang promptly gave them back up, but he still lasted five times longer than Arroyo the previous night. And he only allowed half as many runs as Arroyo! I remember when Harang and Arroyo were one of the best one-two punches in the Central. Not that it was good times or anything, but how the mighty have fallen.

The Reds did manage to win the game, despite Harang’s continued rockiness. The bullpen kept the game tied and the offense came through with a sacrifice fly from Jay Bruce for the winning run in the top of the 10th.
