Golden Sombrero: Jay Bruce (again)

Bottom 2: Jay Bruce struck out swinging against Jon Niese

Bottom 4: Bruce struck out swinging against Niese

Bottom 5: Bruce grounded out to first against Niese

Bottom 7: Bruce struck out swinging against Ryota Igarashi

Bottom 9: Bruce struck out swinging against Tim Byrdak

Final Line: 0-for-5, 4 K

Notes: Bruce’s golden sombrero against the Mets on Tuesday night was his second of the season.  On a night where the Reds pounded out 12 hits and six runs, Bruce was one of two starters not to record a hit.  After Bruce hit a walk-off home run off Byrdak to clinch the N.L. Central last season, the left-handed reliever definitely got his revenge, as he fanned Bruce to end the game.
