    I can't just paste the URLs for the images (or I don't know how), but it's worth a look.

    Here is the URL of the park overlay generator

    http://www.hittrackeronline.com/ballpark_overlay.php


    Easiest way to post the image is to right click the image, open in new tab, copy the url, in the post click on the insert image tab, click the From URL tab, unclick the box saying, retrieve remote file, enter.

    So Chapman could be awarded the win but not Iglesias. It would seem that a closer would be happier with a save come arbitration time than a win so I doubt anyone on the Reds would ever argue for the win to go to Aroldis.
    However, a pitcher cannot get a win and a save and since Chapman came into the game in a save situation, he can't get the W. Also, while Hoover did allow the game to be tied, he did get 3 outs so I don't know about the ineffective part.

    Having Milt Pappas as the guest 7th inning stretch singer with the Reds playing was cold. More than a chance draw IMO.

    I was working on the assumption that he would be awarded the win instead of the save rather than his getting both. Save rule says he can't get the win but does not appear to give a save as preferred by rule over a win.

    Well, there's no choice in the situation. He came in the game in a save situation and completed the game with the Reds still having the lead. He has to get the save and since Iggy was ineligible for the win, Hoover gets it. It's a vulture win but it's a win nonetheless. The official scorer has no discretion in this case.

    THom and Chris said that today was the anniversary of Milt's no-hitter with the Cubs.

    Milt had a no-hitter? Wonders never cease. He's gotta be in the seven decade group anyway. Bless his heart. He didn't choose to come to Cincinnati, Bill Dewitt (less) did.

    He would have had perfect game but Bruce Froeming decided he would be the show instead and made a horrible call on a pitch that resulted in a walk.

    I got home and turned the game on at just about the time Votto homered. So I'll take partial credit for the win.
