Reds 2, Astros 1: Cincinnati’s 1st Complete Game

W: Arroyo (12-10) L: Geary (2-3)


It took 132 games, but the Reds finally have a pitcher with a complete game. You can tell this team is no Milwaukee. You could also guess from that stat that Aaron Harang hasn’t been healthy this year. Of course, with a team record of 58-74, you could guess a lot of things, primarily that Dusty Baker is the “manager.”

Bronson Arroyo was the winner of the dubious honor of first complete game for 2008. It came against the Astros in a rather meaningless little game. Arroyo pitched well, better than he has all year, allowing 1 run over 9 innings.

Houston’s back at .500, but will be expecting to change that once notorious Reds-killer Roy Oswalt starts their next game.
