Reds 4, Indians 2
That old try-to-bunt, then-swing-away strategy works again. Adam Dunn's three-run homer, walkoff homer beat the Indians. Dunn tried bunt on first two pitches. The ball he hit was well struck, as they say. The at-bat went exactly like Edwin Encarnacion's against Arizona in the first series.
That's nine RBI in six games for the Dunn and homers in three straight games.
I talked to Walt Jocketty today for the Insider for the paper. Three things worth mentioning:
--There have been no calls from other teams about Ken Griffey Jr.
--The Reds haven't approached Dunn or any free agents about new contracts.
--Starting the arbitration clock is not a factor with Jay Bruce. Jocketty said what he said the other day: It's a playing time issue. "We're going to have do it sometime and just figure it out."
