Time for a recap of tonight’s titanic struggle….

FINAL — 12 innings
Los Angeles 3
Cincinnati 2
WP: McDonald (4-3)
LP: Cordero (2-4)
S: Broxton (29)
BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–Bronson Arroyo was very good, once again. Seven and a third innings, two runs on six hits. Can’t ask for much more than that.

–Darnell McDonald! Darnell hit a two run homer in the second that accounted for all of the Reds scoring. Who’s making up the Darnell/sombrero photoshop?

NEGATIVES
–TOS*

–The bullpen was pretty strong until an exhausted CoCo came in and threw another 33 pitches, losing the game in the process. The guy needs a week off.

–Joey Votto was 0-5, and struck out four times. Never good to get a golden sombrero. A couple of good games aside, Votto hasn’t been very good lately. I still wish the Reds had 7 other Vottos on the team.

ETC.
–Oh well, with today’s loss, the Redlegs have no chance at 90 wins this season.

–That’s two losses in a row. Perhaps the Reds can get two wins in a row tomorrow, as they hook up with the Pirates in a day/night doubleheader (I hate those).

    Joey is clearly overmatched, he needs to be sent down. yes, being sarcastic. probably because its monday and reds lost to the stinky slimy dodgers.

    Bronson is now 27th in the NL in WHIP. In a 16 team league, that’s not too bad at all. Still don’t know what to think about Bronson.

    what really sux is basically getting beat by Juan Castro. thats a downer right there.

    The only thing they should be doing right now is using this as an opportunity to evaluate players for next year. Yet they are risking Cueto and now Coco by continuing to pitch them despite injuries and workload. I just do not get it.
