Arroyo hits pool, ends losing streak in Reds' win over Cards
ST. LOUIS (AP) - In an effort to stop getting hit so much, Bronson Arroyo hit the pool.
Arroyo worked six solid innings, his best start of the year, in the Cincinnati Reds' 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. He believes adding an early morning swim to his routine has restored the zip to his fastball.
“I'm just trying to change my body up,” Arroyo said. “I've been doing the same stuff for years and sometimes you get kind of in a rut and you feel like you can't throw the ball.
“It just wasn't jumping out of my hand for a while, so I'm trying something different and it seems to be working.”
