Arenado loses streak in Rockies’ 4-3 loss to Reds
Question of the Day
Arenado went 0 for 3, ending his club-record and major league-best hitting streak. But he walked on a full-count pitch with one out in the ninth and Morneau then hit a drive into the gap in left-center, handing Jonathan Broxton (1-0) his first blown save in six opportunities.
“I didn’t see many pitches to hit, and the ones I saw, I missed, but walks are a big deal to me,” Arenado said. “I’m not a big walker. I was just doing what I could to help the team win.”
“He went up there with no other thought other than winning the game,” Weiss said. “He was trying to get on base any way he could.”
“That’s the first time I’ve faced him,” Arenado said. “He’s got a sneaky fastball, and he locates it really well. He’s one of the best pitchers I’ve ever seen.”
Cueto has pitched eight or more innings in five consecutive starts. He has gone at least seven in each of his eight starts this season.
“The guys battled really well,” Weiss said. “We knew it was going to be tough to score runs on Cueto. He’s been locked in. We knew we had to scratch and claw. We had to battle every at bat and make him earn every out. They battled all the way through. Boone got into a tough count against a really good hitter.”
Colorado’s Jhoulys Chacin, making his second start of the season after missing the first month with a right shoulder strain, allowed two runs and four hits in six innings.
“Jhoulys did a hell of a job,” Weiss said. “You could see his confidence growing every inning, especially with his fastball.”
Skip Schumaker hit Chacin’s second pitch of the game up the left-center gap for a double. He moved to third on Brayan Pena’s groundout to first and scored on Brandon Phillips’ sacrifice fly.
Todd Frazier drove Chacin’s first pitch of the second inning 485 feet to a party area above the center-field batter’s eye. Frazier’s sixth homer of the season was the sixth-longest in the 12-year history of Great American Ball Park.
