Reynolds disappointed at end of scoreless streak

Reynolds disappointed at end of scoreless streak

PHOENIX -- D-backs reliever Matt Reynolds knew his scoreless streak would come to an end eventually, but that didn't make it any easier when a team finally broke through against him on Sunday.

Riding a career-best 22-outing (19 innings) scoreless streak, Reynolds allowed two runs on four hits to the Phillies in the 10th inning and took the loss.

"It was bound to happen at some point," he said. "It's obviously disappointing, it cost us the game, but I have to move on, pick up the pieces and start a new one."

One of Reynolds' teammates believes the southpaw will do just that and bounce back from the one poor outing of his season.

"Just because he gave up a run doesn't mean he's not going to put up another 15 innings scoreless," D-backs closer Heath Bell said. "He's definitely going to be a great part of this bullpen. Sometimes you have to tip your cap to the other team."

Even with the pair of runs he surrendered Sunday, Reynolds' ERA is still a miniscule 0.96.
