Bruce missing from Friday lineup
Reds lineup vs. Braves
*Something must be up with up with Jay Bruce, because he is 5-for-9 (.556) with a homer lifetime vs. Braves starter Jair Jurrjens. And Dusty Baker is very big on maximizing matchups whenever he can. When the clubhouse opens, I will see what the word is.
**Update: Bruce is under the weather and having dizzy spells. He is scheduled to see a doctor today.
*Coming off Wednesday’s victory at Pittsburgh, the Reds are trying again for back-to-back wins. That hasn’t happened since the three-game sweep at LA June 13-15.
*Some game time changes ahead: The Aug. 20 game at PIT has been changed from 7:05 p.m. to 4:11 to accommodate the FOX national broadcast…the Sept. 10 at COL is no longer is on the FOX broadcast schedule…that new starting time is TBA.
