Wow. Another 1-2-3 from Homer. 9 pitch inning
50 strikes, 10 balls now. Simply amazing. I'm sure some will point to it being the Pirates, but you'll have success against any team throwing that type of ratio IMO.
60 thru 6.
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
I can't watch the game from work, so can anyone tell me if the Pirates are actually making it to the bench before having to go back out onto the field?
Reds pitching fever, catch it:
17 consecutive scoreless innings
38 of the last 42 innings have been scoreless - only more than 1 run in an inning once in the last 42 innings

Bailey looks fantastic. He's working pretty quickly.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
I'm thinking (hoping) that perhaps what Bryan Price is preaching is finally starting to get through to some of these guys on the rotation. We'll see over time, but so far Bailey's pitching fantastic today after Cueto's dominant performance last night.
