Re: 5/4/13 - Reds at Cubs
He threw 4 sliders that inning. Out of 24 pitches. The HR came on a fastball. He had a slider get away from him and plunked Rizzo. I think it's a reach to say he's behind 2-0 due to the slider and pitch selection. He didn't locate the fastball well that inning either. Who's to say that Rizzo wouldn't have gotten a hit on a fastball there?
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
