    Harang has a better K ratio, 8.5 to 7.2.

    Their walks are almost even Arroyo with a slight lead 2.4 to 2.5.

    Arroyo gives up about a third of a HR more per nine.

    THose are the only 3 metrics that matter and are controllable by the pitcher.

    If you like to stick with what happened so much, last year Majewski was one of baseball's best set up men. And Cormier, with the Phillies, was lights out.

    EdE struckout swinging, and then Dunn fell behind 0-2 before coming back to draw his 98th walk. Good atbat.

    Hopper out on the bunt attempt. Chuck Norris would have hit a 8-run homer.

    LaRue singles on a 3-2 pitch. Harang steps in to hit.

    Harang's given up 24 homers and hasn't been improving in that department; this will be the second straight season Harang's faded down the August/September stretch to end the season on the wrong side of a .750 OPSA; meanwhile Arroyo appears to have reined in his problems and has an excellent chance to finish the season with a sub-.700 OPSA.

    Harang may give up slightly fewer homers, but he's given up quite a few more EBHs overall.

    Harang fouled out. Inning over.

    3-3 after 4.

    Doumit's homer was his fourth this season.

    Three have been against the REDS!
