The Cincinnati Reds played a rematch of yesterday’s game against Tampa Bay and had very different results.

The final score was the Reds 2, Tampa Bay 11.

Jay Bruce connected for a two-run HR of Scott Kazmir in the bottom of the third and that would be the only runs scored by the Reds on this day. The Reds as a team only had a total of five hits as the offense struggled badly on this windy rainy day.

On the hill, starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo pitched very poorly. In four and two-thirds innings Arroyo gave up 14 hits with two walks and three K's. An eight-run eighth didn't help matters either. 

Bronson's ERA currently is at a 5.95 for the spring Pedro Viola, Bill Bray, Arthur Rhodes, and Jared Burton pitched well as they helped this game into being really ugly.

The Reds Spring Training record now stands at 13-16.

Johnny Cueto will start tomorrow at 1:05 as the Reds due battle with N.L. Central foes the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, FL against Ross Ohlendorf.
