Gameday called that pitch to Zimmerman a slider, but that almost looked like a change.
Strikeout number two.
So Dusty double switches so Chapman can go multiple innings but he's not brought into the game with the Reds up in the seventh.........
This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
Werth is up, tough hitter, Chapman allows a single.
Why throw anything but a fastball there? Werth wasn't catching up to it.
Chapman is dealing the heat but Werth seemed comfortable in the kitchen.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Fly out to right, inning over, ninth inning, tied.
I would almost guarantee a bunt attempt by Stubbs leading off the next inning.
Now they look like world-class fielders. Doomed I say
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
I love baseball, but I'd rather the Reds end this one in regulation rather than treat us to more free baseball. That Desmond kid plays really good glove BTW. The Nat's aren't your father's Nats anymore...they've looked pretty solid.
