Re: 8/11/13 - Reds vs. Padres
That inning is a perfect example of the power of defense and why one shouldn't ignore pitcher peripherals in favor of ERA, especially with the Reds staff. Pitchers on the Reds get so much help from their defense. That Padres would've scored a bare minimum of 1 run that inning with the Ms defense behind him....who knows how many an extra out or two could lead to?
