Hanigan's Back Hurts a Little Less After Yesterday, Reds 4-3
Volquez made a nice start as well. For the most part he kept the Rays off base. Of course, Longoria's double followed a walk which fits into the equation. He later gave up a bomb to Upton to keep things close but Ondrusek was quite a bit better yesterday. Bray, who is consistently good, was good. And Coco shut the door with only allowing the one base runner. I realize the numbers are somewhat deceiving, especially because everyone still remembers the grand slam Ondrusek gave up to Matt Kemp where he was only charged with one run, but all three guys have ERA under 2. With Masset throwing well and Chapman apparently headed in the right direction - pretty solid pen. Now if Arredondo could find his way to some lower leverage situations, maybe only coming in when up by 7 or down by 3.
The team takes one off today before starting up at home against the Savages tomorrow. Arroyo v. Masterson, the match-up for which you've been waiting. Reds! Reds! Reds!
