Jay Bruce Solo Homer Makes Reds Lead Three

Ugh.

Oswalt has not been this bad since his first start as a Phillie against the Nationals. Somebody tell him we’re not in Houston. He piped that fastball to Bruce, allowing him to annihilate it into the second deck in right. Two home runs already, this game is getting frustrating. I need good things to start happening.

The worst thing the Phillies hitters could do now is press. A 5-pitch inning for Arroyo would be the equivalent of another run. Take pitches. Wait for mistakes.
