Dusty on Arroyo

Bronson Arroyo said he just wasn’t clicking the way he wanted to Friday night. Reds manager Dusty Baker agreed, saying many of his pitches were near-misses.

In 5.2 innings, Arroyo allowed eight hits, five runs (four earned) and a home run. He walked three and struck out four.

Baker pulled Arroyo after he allowed a Jason Kendall hit that scored Gabe Gross and upped the Brewers’ lead to 5-0.

But after the game, and Saturday, the skipper threw praise Arroyo’s way.
“Bronson, I’ve really got to commend him for taking one for the team because he threw a lot of pitches and saved our bullpen,” Baker said.

“Even though he lost the game, an earlier departure would have really messed us up. We were already kind of reeling, you know, the last couple days.”
