    Chapman/Leake 3/16/2013 Saturday

    Leake gets the A squad going up against the Brewers. Chapman has the B squad with him as he faces San Francisco.

    Billy Hamilton back in the lineup playing CF - meaning, of course, that he leads off. We must be homing in on Opening Day. Both squads have CF leading off, SS hitting second and C batting eighth.
    Stop the presses! Votto and Bruce are hitting back-to-back.
    Bryan Price said that the Chapman-Leake decision will come down any day. This is probably the last head-to-head we will see between these two pitchers.

    Some odds and ends:
    Slidin' Billy triples and scores on a ground out. Frisco announcers amazed by his spreed. Ludwick still struggling.
    Cozart walks and Votto with a soft liner. Runners on the corners. I think Votto makes the club. Bruce with a double off the glove of the second baseman. Cozart scores.
    Giant announcer comparing Chapman to Vida Blue. Chapman walks the first batter and the second batter. Chapman hitting 93-94. 9 straight out of the zone by Aroldis. Liner off the bat of the Panda. Bases juiced. Nobody out. Chapman hits 96. Wild pitch (slider in the dirt_ that goes off the arm of Olivo and into the Reds' dugout to score a run. Pence Ks. Belt pops out. Easy grounder to short. It seemed as if Chapman was having trouble with his off-speed pitches.

    Meanwhile, Leake gets a grounder to second. And then a grounder back to the mound that results in an error on Joey Votto (missed catch). Ground single to left off the bat of Rickie Weeks. Ramirez doubles in a run. Davis singles in a pair. Schafer triples in another run. Leake making this an easier decision so far today. A ground out makes it 5-1 as the Brewers send 8 to the plate in the first.
