Reds Bats back Arroyo's gem as Reds solve Cards

Quote:
When the Reds really needed it most, Bronson Arroyo pitched a superb game. So far this season, even that hadn't always been good enough.

But it was sufficient on Thursday during a 6-3 Reds victory over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. Arroyo pitched eight innings and got the backup from the lineup that his start deserved. It gave him his first win of the season and the rotation its first "W" since Opening Day.

"Just as a staff for the five guys, we've been toeing the rubber and throwing the ball pretty decent and have not been able to pull out victories for ourselves or the team," Arroyo said. "It's huge definitely. We're still early in the season, but you want to get the ball rolling -- and if you do what you're supposed to do out there, you have a chance to win, and the club is in support of that. Today, that all fell into place."

Arroyo gave up three runs and five hits with no walks and five strikeouts. His only blemish came in the sixth, when Matt Holliday hit a three-run home run.
