Ryan Ludwick was one of the lone bright spots Wednesday.
The Reds went for the brooms to sweep away the Milwaukee
Brewers in a matinee at GABP Wednesday afternoon, but fell behind early and
could never mount a rally and will be forced to settle for two out of three. Cincinnati
remains eight games over .500 at 41-33. To the details….
-Ryan Ludwick had a great day, homering twice to raise his
batting average to .229. He now has 11 home runs on the season to go along with
-Todd Frazier got the start and Scott Rolen took a day off
(though he did pinch hit), as you might expect for a day game after a night
contest. For those wondering, Frazier went 1-for-4 and now stands at .264 on
the year while Rolen grounded out in his only at-bat and is batting .195.
-Joey Votto doubled again and upped his league-leading total
to 32 on the season.
-Bill Bray pitched a scoreless inning, walking one and
striking out one.
