Reds game 2

Following the Indians example, the Reds bounced back from their awful first game to beat Chicago yesterday. Baseball is all about the pitching and the difference for the Reds from one game to the next was the starting pitching. New starter Bronson Arroyo pitched 6 & 2/3 solid innings and hit a home run.

The Pittsburgh Pirates come to town today. It will be a homecoming of sorts for new Pirates Sean Casey and Joe Randa who were with the Reds last year.

Centerfielder Ken Griffey Jr. passed a couple of Hall of Fame centerfielders in the record book yesterday. His fifth inning home run was the 537th of his career, moving him past Mickey Mantle into 12th place on the all-time list. That homer also gave Griffey 1,538 career RBI, breaking his tie with Joe DiMaggio for 31st on the career list. Griffey is at a point in his career that it seems anytime he passes someone on the all time lists it's a Hall of Famer. (H/T Baseball Musings)
