Sorry if I missed this posted elsewhere, but this gave me a good chuckle. From John Fay:
Who’s the closer tonight?

ST. LOUIS — If the Reds have a save opportunity tonight, it’s unclear who will get it. It probably won’t Aroldis Chapman or Jonathan Broxton.
“We’re dealing with a rash of allergies,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “We’ve got allergy problems going through our team. We’ve got 10 or 12 guys with bad allergies, including Chapman. He looked like hell when he came in.
“I don’t think he’s available tonight. I don’t know if Broxton’s available tonight. We might have to close with somebody else.”
Both Chapman and Broxton have pitched two straight days. Broxton threw 30 pitches in his outing Sunday.
“We were a little apprehensive about using him last night,” Baker said. “It’s not the innings sometimes. It’s the workload of that inning.”
Yes that was a very impressive infield single. I thought for a second it was leaving the yard. - texasdave 10/13/12
