Game 3, Thread 2: A state trooper would not pull over those curveballs

In a battle of crafty soft-tossers, the Reds are coming out ahead so far.  Arroyo surrendered the now-customary leadoff home run to Rickie Weeks, but Cincinnati came back.  Jonny Gomes's first hit of the year was a home run, which is not surprising since this is the first lefty starter the Reds have faced this season.  Paul Janish drove in Jay Bruce for a second run before BP struck out with the bases loaded.  Join in for the rest of the story, already in progress.
