It was a long day for Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo. in what could have been his final start at a redleg, he allowed five home runs, all solo shots, in the Reds 8-3 loss at the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
"It felt like a rib was out of place. It still does," Arroyo said. "I don't think it affected the game that much. To be honest with you, I wasn't that comfortable out there. But you just can't get away with leaving balls in the zone as much as I did in a ballpark as small as this is with a lineup like they've got over there. It was definitely poor location."
"Years go by quick," Arroyo said. "I've been here eight years and it definitely will be strange if this is my last start. Hopefully not. We go to Tuesday and we've still got life just as much as they do."
With the playoff scene set, the Reds and Pirates will face off in the season finale Sunday afternoon at 1:10 ET as Greg Reynolds will try and help Cincinnati end the season on a high note.
