Bruce still confident

The Reds have lost nine in a row, their longest losing streak since 1998, and although not much has gone right in Cincinnati lately, Jay Bruce remains confident.

“I look forward to it turning around,” Bruce told “It can go nine in a row the other way. The biggest deal is, when that opportunity comes, we have to be ready for it.”

Bruce has been doing his part as he's on a tear at the plate lately, but he'd much rather the team start winning.

If there is a silver lining for the Reds right now it is that the losing streak has come early in the season and the team still has plenty of time left to right the ship.

“We've got 120 games left or whatever it is,” Bruce said. “We have a decision to make. We can either soak in our own teams and whine and be down and continue to kind of drag our heads or we can come back ready to play and be baseball players and compete because that's what we do and that's what we all take a lot of pride in doing.”
