jay-bruce-jc-423Jay Bruce slugged his 21st and 22nd homers and knocked in five runs in Tuesday’s triumph over the Cardinals.  Meanwhile, Bruce has made some adjustments since returning from an eight-week disabled list stint with a broken right wrist.  Since being activated on Sept. 14, he is batting .375 (12-for-32) with four homers and 12 RBIs. He’s batting .224 for the season.  After avoiding the long ball virtually all season, Joel Pineiro was reached for three homers Tuesday.  Jay Bruce hit a three-run shot in the second inning and a two-run jack in the sixth, and Joey Votto added a solo homer in the third.  Pineiro had not given up even two homers in a single game all year, and had been reached a total of seven times in his previous 30 starts.
