April 17, 2011

On this day, last year, Jay Bruce went 4 for 5 with one HR, 2 RBI’s, 2 runs and one strike out. Miguel Cairo, who was playing 2B that day went 3 for 4 with 1 HR, 1 run, 1 RBI and got hit by a pitch. Jonny Gomes also hit one HR that day.

Sunday, April 17, 2011, at Great American Ball Park in front of 32,105 fans Cincinnati Reds lost to Pittsburgh Pirates. Pirates 7 – Reds 6 But the team saw some nice offense from Jay Bruce and Miguel Cairo.

Hopefully Jay Bruce will see the same results today against St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse. Side note: Jay Bruce’s HR was off an 81 mph sinker in the bottom of the 7th inning against Jose Veras. Kyle Lohse loves to throw a 89 mph sinker. Bruce hit a HR off of Kyle Lohse back on May 9, 2009 (84 mph slider) [Source]
