Yet your original statement was about the playoffs. Homer Bailey allowed 1 hit in 7 innings with a walk, a run and 10 strikeouts in his lone playoff appearance. The Reds somehow still lost that game. Having that extra ace wasn't the difference maker because they had it during 2012 in the playoffs on at least one day, and the Reds still couldn't win.
