    Good job by Cordero to strike out the side to end the game.

    As was the 2-2 pitch to DeRosa. Good luck hitting those.

    Think Walt could still move Arroyo to the Phils?

    I think he could, I'd be surprised if he made it that far through waivers.

    Maybe someone nudged him and reminded him that he's making 12 million in 6 months to throw 75 innings of baseball.

    Night games vs. righties you ask? .613.

    I say keep him batting cleanup, he's DUE dude!
    Maybe Phillips needs night vision goggles.

    Bronson Arroyo, whose gutty pitching kept the Reds in a game they normally would have lost (and thanks to their defense didn't) -- says that now comes the chance to take two of three from the Cubs by winning a day game Thursday at Wrigley Field.

    "These guys (the Cubs) are pretty much playing (loose), running away with this thing for awhile, got a pretty good little cushion, so they're up they're hacking," Arroyo said.

    Arroyo said he didn't feel he had to be perfect, but knew he couldn't give up much. The Reds won 2-1.

    Would you believe that coming into Wednesday's game the Reds record when they score less than three runs was 1-39?

    It's true.

    Uncork the good stuff, Mabel, let's have a party. The Reds are now 2-39 when they score less than three.

    "I knew we weren't going to put up a lot against (Cubs starter Ted) Lilly," Arroyo said, whose record went to 11-10 copared to Lilly's 12-7.

    "I thought the umpires missed a couple of pitches that cost me a couple walks that got me into some jams," Arroyo said. "They (the Cubs hitters) weren't squaring up the ball against me at all today, but they found some holes and got me in some trouuble. I felt like once I got out of those (early) innings I'd have a chance to maybe set a decent number of guys down in a row."

    He got nine in a row, and 10 of 11.
