Third start for The Lizard, and while his record stands at 1-1, he hasn't pitched bad yet. Can he sustain it? My hope is yes, and my head says yes as well. This kid has impeccable control, always has, but he's add a much improved changeup to his repertoire. He's keeping hitters off balance. Will Arizona's offense/park help or hurt him tonight? Can he continue to be stingy with the free passes?
I don't think the Reds bullpen is up to the task of making a run for the post season, but this underappreciated rotation is quietly making waves. I plan to enjoy it while it lasts.
