Braden Looper vs Bronson Arroyo
Mostly clear. Winds blowing from left to right field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game Time temperature: Around 70.
Arroyo is 20 IP from his 4th straight 200 inning season. He's also one win away from a career high. It's September Reds baseball...time to play for milestones!
The Cardinals have lost 5 in a row and sit 4.5 back in the wild card race. This is the fourth time in the last 5 series where the Reds opponent has come into the series with a losing streak of 5 games or more (the one that didn't, Milwaukee, is 3-11 in their last 14). The Reds are 7-5 in the previous 4 series. So, take any winning the Reds are doing right now with a giant grain of salt.
Anyone else disappointed that they aren't doing a bobble-arm doll for Tom Browning? (Too soon?)
