…and it wasn’t pretty:

Bronson Arroyo’s career with the Reds launched on Saturday, as did what the pitcher hoped would be only a brief period of adjustment.

His pitching line wasn’t spectacular. Facing the Twins, Arroyo completed five innings and gave up six runs (five earned) with seven hits and two walks while striking out three.

Ugh. It’ll get better, I hope. Of course, with this outing, Arroyo lowered his spring ERA to 9.72. That’s ugly.
