Reds 5, Cardinals 4, sweep complete
The Reds are 23-8 when Aaron Harang starts and 44-71 when he doesn't. That's a pretty telling stat. Harang didn't have his best stuff today. He still went seven ininngs and allowed only three runs on three hits. He walked two and struck out five.
“Aaron was great,” catcher David Ross said. "Every time he goes out, you're going to get a solid outing. He's going to strike some guys out. He's going to go deep into the game, and he's going to give you a chance to win. He doesn't get enough credit for that. Just solid Harang. He's solid every time out. I love catching him.”
Joey Votto's two-run double and Ross' two-run homer provided the offense.
