If Reds manager Bryan Price was upset with his team's performance in Monday's loss to the Indians, Cleveland manager Terry Francona had to be equally upset with his squad's showing in Tuesday's 9-2 Reds victory at Progressive Field. The Indians had just one error on the scoreboard, but they had plenty of mistakes, several of them leading to Reds runs. "We're pretty self-aware and we take responsibility for things that we do right and wrong," said right fielder Jay Bruce, who had one of the mental errors in Monday's loss when he ventured too far off of second base with one out, but responded with three hits on Tuesday, including his first home run since July 8. "Bryan was absolutely right about everything he said. I believe that he truly knows that is the exception, (Monday) night's game. We're a group of guys who take a lot of pride in doing things right and play hard and expecting to be prepared and to stay in the game and win. Last night we didn't do that, but we look to do a lot more of this." While the rest of the Reds looked nothing like they did in their last game, Johnny Cueto looked pretty much like he has all season. Cueto gave up two runs on five hits while notching his fourth complete game of the season.
