It's become pretty standard for Jay Bruce over the past week to crush the baseball.  The only difference this time is it's the first one that went towards a Reds W.  RBI's 31, 32, and 33 could not have come at a better time for the Reds' Right fielder as he drove a double off the wall against Phillies' relief pitcher Ryan Madson giving the Reds a 6-3 lead over the Phils.

Johnny Cueto pitched a quality start allowing 3 runs in 6 innings.  Pitched into trouble a couple times but only allowing the Phillies to go 2 for 9 with runners in scoring position.  Cueto really didn't have his best stuff tonight but made pitches when he need to.

This snaps a six game slide for the Redlegs, their longest since 2009 and hopefully will be a springboard into June.  Tomorrow will be Travis Wood and Roy Halladay on the mound.  This being a rematch of the game last year when Wood had a perfect game going into the ninth inning and still got the loss to Doc.  Hopefully the Reds can do what few teams can do and beat Halladay after he embarrassed them in the NLDS last season with a no-no.
