Arroyo, still upset at having to bat and do the whole NL thing, steps back up on the mound. He misses Boston's mound already.
1.) Jason Tyner steps in. Steve comments that Bronson Arroyo is 6'5" -- meaning that I would own him in the paint. Tyner grounds to second, the play going Womack to Aurillia. The collective masses of RedsZone give one of these:
2.) Rodrieguez up next and takes a 5 pitch by Bronson Arroyo. He goes to the umpire to complain that the strike zone he enjoyed in Boston was much better and that all 5 of those pitches would've been strikes. The umpire calls him "wicked stupid." 1st with 1 out.
3.) Kubel up at the plate and gets a full count from Bronson Arroyo and draws another walk from Arroyo. Back to Back walks for Bronson.
4.) Morneau pops up to Felipe Lopez, apparently forgetting the #1 rule of batting against a pitcher that just walked two batters: WAIT AND TAKE A STRIKE, MORON! Bronson benefits from this mental error. 2 on, 2 outs.
5.) Glen Williams drives an 0-1 pitch to the cheapies for his first home run in the grapefruit league. 3 run dinger. But, on the plus side, there ends the string of 5 consecutive lefties in the lineup. 4-2 Twinks.
6.) Rabe foams a double down the left field line to Adam Dunn. Krivsky wondering if he can have "do overs" on the trade.
7.) Bowen with a flair into center that drops for a hit and scores another run. Arroyo grabs the cell phone to call Curt Schilling and ask to be reminded how big certain parts of his anatomy are. 5-2 Twinks, 2 out.
8.) Bartlet chops to short to mercifully end the inning. Bronson throws his glove in disgust and wishes he was at a place where everyone knew his name.
5-2 Twinks. I love this game.
