Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….
FINAL — 10 innings
Los Angeles 3
W: R. Belisario (8-1)
L: S. LeCure (3-3)
S: B. League (4)
–Bronson Arroyo pitched eight strong innings, giving up one run on six hits. He also drove in Cincinnati’s only run with a fifth inning single. Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it all alone.
–Jonathan Broxton pitched a perfect ninth.
–Sam LeCure — who has been so effective lately — gave away the game in the tenth.
–Reds only had four hits.
–Oh well, the Reds are really playing with house money at this point. After St. Louis lost earlier today, Cincinnati’s magic number dropped to one. A win tonight would have been the division championship clincher.
–Dusty Baker missed the game again tonight. Here’s hoping he’ll be back tomorrow.
