Wow, ugly outings for Bronson Arroyo and Francisco Cordero against the Reds minor leaguers tonight. Arroyo: 3 innings, 7 hits, 6 earned runs. CoCo: 2 IP, 3 hits, 4 runs, 3 ER.
Can we worry about Cordero yet?
At least the young guys look good. Yonder Alonso has a homer and 2 walks in his first three ABs. Juan Francisco has two homers and five RBI. Chris Heisey is 3-3, and Chris Valaika is 3-4.
UPDATE: Here’s the gruesome box score; final was 12-4. Not pretty.
Valaika ended up 4-5, though, which is nice.
