Coming into Wednesday, Arroyo's 209 starts in the last seven seasons rank third in the Major Leagues, trailing Dan Haren and Derek Lowe, who have 212 and 210, respectively. Arroyo's 1,338 1/3 innings pitched during that span are sixth, 140 2/3 innings behind Roy Halladay.
This year, Arroyo is 2-2 with a 3.46 ERA. He allowed four runs in 7 2/3 innings Friday against the Yankees, but the Reds were shut out, 4-0. He will be looking for a better result against Atlanta.
"A loss is a loss, so it isn't that pleasing regardless," Arroyo said Friday.
Tommy Hanson was just starting his professional career in 2006. But in his four seasons with the Braves, he has become an integral part of the rotation. He beat the Rays on Friday, allowing just two runs on six hits in seven innings. It was his second consecutive win.
"I feel really good," he said after the game. "Hopefully, [I] just keep this thing going and keep going out and throwing the ball well."
Braves: Jones, McCann sit Tuesday, could return Wednesday
Braves third baseman Chipper Jones sat out his fourth straight game Tuesday after getting hit in the left calf by a sharp ground ball Friday at Tampa Bay. He did take batting practice for the first time since the injury.
Catcher Brian McCann also sat out Tuesday. He was originally in the lineup but scratched because of illness. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said McCann had a slight fever.
Both Jones and McCann are considered day to day and could be in the lineup Wednesday.
Center fielder Michael Bourn hit two solo home runs Tuesday. It was Bourn's first career multihomer game and his 19th multihit game of the season.
Though the Braves lost Tuesday, they are 15-4 when Bourn has at least two hits.
"We go as he goes," Gonzalez said. "He gets on base, he's going to create some havoc on the basepath, and I think everybody else feeds off of that. He grabs a lot of attention of the pitcher, and I can tell you there are a number of times the pitcher makes a mistake to one of the next two guys because he's keeping an eye on him."
Reds: Long balls the key to Reds' wins
All eight of the Reds' runs in the first two games of the series have come via the home run. Four of the home runs came in Monday's 4-1 victory, and they hit three more in Tuesday's 4-3 win.
Center fielder Drew Stubbs, shortstop Zack Cozart and second baseman Brandon Phillips all have two home runs in the series. Right-hander Mike Leake, who was Monday's starting pitcher, got into the act with the first home run of his career.
After getting a day off to rest, left-hander Aroldis Chapman was back in the closer role Tuesday. He pitched a scoreless ninth, striking out two batters for his first save at home and second this season.
Jones is 11-for-28 with three home runs against Arroyo.
The Reds are on a four-game winning streak and have scored 19 runs since getting shut out Friday by the Yankees.
