Re: Cactus League - Reds vs. Tribe 03/17/13
Staked to a two-run first-inning led. Two innings in the books for Mike 'How we looking?' Leake. 2IP 3H 3ER 2BB 0K 1HR. Leake walked the first two batters of the game and they both rode home on a two-out jack. Second inning went single, gidp, single, fly out. Reds trail 3-2. Leake settling down now. Two grounders and a fly ball in the third. Leake gives up a lead-off jack in the fourth. The next batter doubles and moves to third on an error by Ryan Ludwick. (And the Reds are gonna run this guy out there every 5th day. SMH.) A walk follows. Runners on the corners now. 1-2-4 double play. The old strike 'em out, throw 'em out. Nice. Strike three called. Leake works out of danger. 4-2 Dodgers after four. 1-2-3 fifth for Leake. His final line is: 5IP 5H 4ER 3BB 2K 2HR.
Chapman on for the sixth. Adrian Gonzalez lines a first-pitch single to center. Aroldis then induces Cruz to ground into a double play. Matt Angle struck out. That is all for Chapman. So, I guess you can pencil Aroldis in as closer. LOL. What a ridiculous decision. Chapman's final line: 1IP 1H 0ER 0BB 1K 0HR.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
