Amir Garrett blows save vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell tried to show his faith in struggling closer Amir Garrett by bringing him out of the bullpen with a three-run lead in the ninth inning.

The move backfired and the Reds dropped their series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Garrett surrendered a game-tying, three-run homer to former Reds utility player Josh VanMeter and then the wheels fell off in the 10th inning in an 8-5 loss at Great American Ball Park. The Reds have lost four of their five games against the Diamondbacks this season, including two on Wednesday.

"These two losses are on me and I take full accountability for it," said Garrett, who received the loss in the suspended game that was completed Wednesday. "This (stuff) ain’t going to happen no more because this isn’t me. It stinks right now.

"It’s embarrassing that I’m pitching like this because I’m way better than this. I’m way better than this."
