And it went down in GABP, which is not known as a pitcher's park. The Bucs have been scoring runs in bunches (witness out last three-game series with them) and Bronson three-hits them in 6 innings. Nothing to sneeze about.
Of all the pitchers that have passed through Cincinnati in the last 2+ years, Arroyo can hardly be considered fodder. Given the territory, that's saying something.
