Homer Bailey was excellent in his 8.0 innings pitched, scattering 6 hits with 1 run and no walks while striking out 10 as the Reds defeated the Brewers Friday night, 3-1.

Bailey has won 4 straight starts, during which time he’s given up just 6 earned runs over 30.2 innings (1.76era). 

Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect 9th for his 16th save.  25 of Chapman’s last 31 outs have come via strikeout.

The Reds scored 3 runs on 8 hits. 

Jay Bruce snapped an 0-for-19 skid, going 2-for-3 with a home run (#19) and a double.  Zack Cozart (#10) and Scott Rolen (#4) also went deep.

Devin Mesoraco extended his career-high hitting streak to 8 games.

At 53-40 the Reds are a season-high 13 games over .500.  Friday’s win secured a winning homestand for the Reds, who’ve won 9 of their last 11 games. 

The series resumes Saturday as Bronson Arroyo opposes Yovani Gallardo.  First pitch is schedule for 7:10pm.  Plenty of seats remain, so get down here to Great American Ball Park and see these red-hot Redlegs!

Lovin’ the game photos – thanks Jamie. But someone should remind the powers that be that when a Red hits a bomb, it’s not a mere home run, but a Funk (or phunk) blast!
