Making Arroyo his No. 2 starter seemed to be the weak link in Dusty Baker’s postseason master plan, but Arroyo has the curve working tonight and has retired all nine hitters he’s faced. He’s already lowered his career postseason ERA from 6.04 to 5.33.
It’s just Arroyo’s second postseason start in his seven years with the Reds. He made two starts and eight relief appearances with the Red Sox previously.
