Reds lineup vs. Indians
*MLB on Wednesday declined Brandon Phillips’ appeal for a scoring change. It upheld the official scorer decision from Monday that Phillips was given a RBI double and scored on a E7 by Johnny Damon. Phillips felt he should have been credited with an inside-the-park homer.
UPDATE — Phillips accepted the decision.
“I’m not mad. I got a hit,” Phillips said. “We just lost. I care about the loss more than anything.”
*If the Reds win tonight, they will regain the Ohio Cup for taking the season series over the Indians. More importantly, they need the victory for a winning road trip.
*Shin-Soo Choo has killed the Reds this season, but he’s particularly dangerous vs. Bronson Arroyo. Choo is 6-for-12 with four homers lifetime against Arroyo.
*In his latest rehab outing for Triple-A Louisville, Bill Bray pitched a scoreless and hitless one inning on Wednesday afternoon with two walks. Bray earned the victory over Scranton-Wilkes Barre but threw 23 pitches with only 10 strikes.
