Bronson Arroyo had never won in San Francisco before pitching a playoff masterpiece. That Bronson Arroyo is a little different isn't news, but it's safe to say no one in baseball knows the depth of the difference between Arroyo and your normal Major League pitcher better than Ryan Hanigan. Although Arroyo didn't need much help, the offense provided plenty in the form of nine runs on 13 hits. Leading lads: Bronson Arroyo retired the first 14 batters he faced before giving up a single to Brandon Belt. On Sunday night, the Reds catcher was on the receiving end of all 91 pitches of Arroyo's finest October outing among a dozen he has pitched, this one a dominating seven-inning start that put the Reds on the road to a commanding 2-0 lead in the National League Division Series over the Giants. Ryan Ludwick hit his first postseason home run and Ryan Hanigan drove in his first playoff run. There were all kinds of memorable firsts this weekend for the gutsy Cincinnati Reds , who beat the San Francisco Giants 9-0 on Sunday night to take a commanding 2-0 lead in their NL Division Series and head home to Ohio on quite a roll.
