Some lofty Reds numbers
Have a plane to catch but here are some quick numbers to digest after a 11-3 Reds victory over the Pirates on Sunday to win two of three in series.
*Bronson Arroyo won his 14th game of the season, joining Mat Latos (14-6) and Mike Leake (also 14-6). The last time the Reds had three 14-game winners: 1975 (Jack Billingham 15-10, Don Gullett 15-4, Gary Nolan 15-9).
*Joey Votto hit a RBI double in the eighth inning. It gave him 30 for the season, for the sixth-straight season. Only Pete Rose (1965-70, 1972-78) had six-straight 30 double seasons for Cincinnati.
*The Reds pitching staff notched six strikeouts today, giving them 1,249 Ks for 2013. That snapped last season’s club record.
*Billy Hamilton had three hits and two more stolen bases. Hamilton is 12-for-12 in steals.
*The Reds road record for the regular season ended at an even .500 at 41-41.
