Reds go 4-6, losing last five, and six of seven on road to Cards and Rockies. Reds now lead Central by 5 (it was as high as 8). Five game lead the same as last report. Reds 79-61 record, 41-27 home, 38-34 road. Run differential is plus 85 (was plus 87 last time), Cards now at plus 84.

In all important loss column, Phils/Pads 60, Reds/Braves 61, Giants 62, Rockies 64, Cards 65.

Bruce with injury missed road trip, Nix and Edmonds out, so few left handed hitters available and few outfielders. Harang replaced Volquez in rotation, now Volquez back with club after minor league stint. A number of September call ups with the big club. Cabrera back from injury, but then missed last two games. Chapman up in relief.

Offense - Hitting stats stayed about the same. OPS slightly up at .774, SLG slightly down at .435, OBP slightly up at .339, BA the same at .272. Reds lead league in these departments except OBP (second). Votto now at .323, 32 HRs, 100 RBI, with OPS of 1.013. Some BA stats over the last seven days: Stubbs at .346, Janish .333, Hernandez .313, Gomes .280, Votto .280, Rolen .200, Heisey .179, Phillips .167.

Pitching - Team ERA, eleventh in league, is 4.13, continuing slide from twenty games ago when it was 3.94. Starting pitching has slid from 4.00 to 4.10 to current 4.17 (eleventh in league). Bullpen, after bad period (was 4.18), recovered somewhat to 4.07.

Starting pitching ERAs (current rotation) are Wood 3.33, Cueto 3.45, Arroyo 4.09, Bailey 5.00, Harang 5.15, Volquez 6.17. Arroyo, now 14-10, despite two "quality" starts, has lost three straight outings.

Interesting to compare Reds team ERA of 4.13 to 4.18 overall team ERA in 2009.

Fielding - Reds made 7 errors over last 10 games, but still lead league with fewest errors at 59 and a .989 FPCT. Reds team DER (MLB.com) slipped from second to fourth, trailing SD, LA and SF.
