On April 11, 2006 — Bronson Arroyo, who hit no home runs in his first six major league seasons, hits his second in six days off Glendon Rusch in the Cincinnati Reds’ 9 – 2 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Arroyo, acquired by Cincinnati in a March 20th trade with the Boston Red Sox, also pitches seven shutout innings, beating Chicago for the second time in two starts. His solo shot six days ago against Rusch at Great American Ball Park was his first homer since high school and first major league hit since 2001.
