Reds 11, Brewers 4
The Reds scored six in the first, two in the second, two in the third. Despite that, Bronson Arroyo did not become disoriented and forget which team he was pitching for. Arroyo had been getting 3.9 runs per game in support.
"Six runs in the first inning is a beautiful thing," he said.
A beautiful thing indeed for Pete Mackanin. The Reds are 33-26 since he took over. Twenty-two games remain. How many of them do the Reds have to win for Mackanin to be back? I don't think there's a finite number. But I think he needs to avoid a September collapse to have a chance.
