Bronson Wins #15...... On Browning's Night

At first I thought maybe Aaron Harang was on the mound tonight. You know were I am going, Harang equals no run support. The Reds just couldn't get anything going against Branden Looper and the St. Louis Cardinals. Looper held the Reds scoreless until the sixth inning when they loaded the bases to set up a bases clearing double for Edwin Encarnacion. This three run double was all the Reds and Bronson needed tonight. Arroyo won his career high fifteenth game against ten losses. Bronson had a pretty good line tonight, fanning four and scattering five hits over his seven innings of work.

Tonight was also a special night as the Reds honored Mr. Perfect, Tom Browning with his own bobble head for everyone in attendance. I did get one and it's a nice bobble head. Just because the Reds are out of it doesn't mean I won't go and enjoy a night at the ball park. It will soon be another long cold spell until baseball returns, so try to get out and see one more game before the season ends. Back to Browning, he threw a perfect game against the LA Dodgers twenty years ago tonight. It was and still is the only perfect game in Reds history. Think about this, in over 138 years of Major League Baseball there has been 17 perfect games thrown.....that's pretty special!!!!!!!!

I heard browning say on the game last night that he was remembered for sitting with the fans across the street from Wrigley as much as the perfect game.
