And Arroyo had looked good to that point, we started warming Arredondo as soon as he started losing it.
Either way it never mattered. The closest we came to scoring a run was on a strikeout-pass ball-error-sacrifice bunt combo which Votto followed up with another K. If that is your best opportunity all night things are pretty sad.
