As of today (5/2), the Reds are the MLB leaders in giving up walks (as in fewest allowed). With having only given up 61, they lead the 2nd place team, Cleveland, by seven. The MLB average is at 90.5 BB per team so far. No doubt this has contributed to the Reds also having a very impressive WHIP so far at 1.24, coming in at 6th overall.
A great start for the staff and Dick Pole
