Well, now Bronson Arroyo has an earned run on his ledger from Wednesday night. There has been a scoring change. See this item from the Reds:
**With Russell Martin batting in the third inning last night, he reached base on what originally was ruled an error on Bronson Arroyo…that has been changed to a single…credit Martin with a hit (2) and RBI (1) and Arroyo with a hit (7) and earned run (1).**
Arroyo would certainly rather take the error than the earned run, so I’m sure he won’t be very pleased.
My take: It was an error. Arroyo is a Gold Glove winning pitcher and almost always makes plays like that… even if it was a tough one like the Martin comebacker.
