Arroyo Rocks it Like a Masochist, Reds 5-1

The author apologizes for the lack of activity. All these Reds victories just blend into the last. It's hard to keep them all straight. The Reds take the first two from the Fighting Human Growth Hormones at the GAB. The Cardinals appear to have given up on hope on the season, dropping their sixth in a row.

Arroyo went six, but if you believe his quotes, actually wanted to stay in the game and pitch some more. But Mackanin yanked him in favor of fan favorite Jorge Cantu, who struck out swinging. Stanton, though it's much too late to be trying to make any friends around these parts, got an out, which is positive, and then we got to see Majewski, Burton, and Weathers. You just don't stand a chance against a pen of that quality. Encarnacion had a nice night, with a bomb and three driven in. Phillips also went deep and stole a base, meaning, even though he still refuses to draw a walk, he looks to soon become one of baseball's offensive elite. 30/30 used to be reserved for guys like Eric Davis or Jose Canseco. Looks like Brandon Phillips will soon be the answer to that Aflac trivia question. Thom's guess will be Ron Oester or Chris Stynes, though the latter, if the author recalls correctly, played more third than second. Big win tonight team, finish the sweep tomorrow morning. Reds! Reds! Reds!
