Arroyo scattered five hits and walked just two batters in his 7 2/3 innings. He struck out six and didn't face much of a challenge from the Phillies. Though Dom Brown was credited with a double, he was thrown out attempting to stretch it to a triple, the Phillies didn't get a runner into scoring position against Arroyo until the eighth inning when Jimmy Rollins walked and was allowed to advance two bases because of indifference.
As a result, the Phillies were shutout for the sixth time this season. They also have allowed the opposition to reach double-digits in runs six times this season and have failed to post 10 runs in any game this season.
Meanwhile, Kyle Kendrick fell to 4-2 after allowing four runs on eight hits and four walks in six innings. The Reds got on the board in the seocnd inning on a three-run homer from No. 8-hole hitter, Ryan Hanigan. They added another run in the sixth before roughing up relievers B.J. Rosenberg, Jeremy Horst and Phillippe Aumont for four more runs in the eighth inning.
In the ninth, Joey Votto homered off Chad Durbin to round out the scoring for the Reds.
The Phillies will try to take the series on Sunday afternoon when Jonathan Pettibone (3-0, 3.41) takes on Homer Bailey (2-3, 3.51). Pettibone will try to become the first Phillies' starting pitcher to go 4-0 to open his career since 1999 when Randy Wolf went 5-0.
Pitcher Carlos Zambrano made his first appearance in an extended spring game in Clearwater on Saturday, turning in two scoreless innings. Zambrano allowed a hit and had five strikeouts on 44 pitches.
Additionally, lefty starter John Lannan threw a bullpen session on Saturday and is expected to do another one on Monday. If all goes well, Lannan is expected to throw live batting practice in the next two weeks.
