Bronson Hustle

The Reds lead the majors in going from first to third on a single. They’ve done it 32 times. The Texas Rangers were second at 25.

“You’ve always got the guy who can do it,” Baker said. “I think a lot of it is emphasis and a lot of it is judgment of when to do it. I’ve been emphasizing it since I’ve been here. Sometimes, it takes a little while to get an understanding.”

In Sunday’s game alone, they went first to third on a single five times. Even pitcher Bronson Arroyo did it. “That one shocked me a little because it was to left,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Let’s not get too carried away.”

It has been awhile since the Reds had been so aggressive on the basepaths. They are taking extra bases and putting themselves in position to score a sacrifice fly. It is the little things like these that this ballclub has been missing the past ten years.
