Found September 27, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
Bruuuuuce appears to be levitating. With the only thing left to achieve in the regular season being the #1 seed, the Reds (94-62) looked to claim a series victory over the Brewers (80-76) in an afternoon affair, which also happened to be the last regular season home game of 2012.

How Mat Latos Saved His Season

It is easy to forget that Mat Latos is still just 24-years-old. It is also easy, apparently, to overlook how impressive he has been since the second half of June.Latos started off his tenure in Cincinnati pretty miserably, with a 5.20 ERA in 14 starts.

Game 155: Brewers 8, Reds 1

Bronson Arroyo had his worst outing in a long, long time. He worked 6.0 innings and allowed 4 runs (earned...
