CINCINNATI -- Homer Bailey knew all along that he would turn things around after struggling early this season.
So when he tossed eight dominant innings against the Phillies on Sunday afternoon and hit a two-run single in the fifth inning to lead the Reds to a 4-1 victory at Great American Ball Park, it was a culmination of what he knew to be coming from Day 1.
"I knew all along, even from the beginning, just give me a little bit of time and let me get my rhythm back," Bailey said. "Missing time early, and I had a bunch of games where I didn't do very good at all, but it's not something I haven't been through before."
