Wandy has lost the plate, he's walked 4 of the last 5.
I'm in love with rock and roll and I'll be out all night.

Walked 5 of the last 7, bases loaded for Rolen.

Lost the plate and the HPU has a small zone going. Not a good combination...

Got out of the jam with a K and a popup. Wow!

Crazy line for Wandy through 3: 5 BB, 4 SO, 0 H.

The pitch tracker has corroborated most every call. I'd love to tell you different but it looks like the HP ump is getting it right.

Spaz!!! lays out for one to rob the Reds of a run.  Still knotted at 3 in the middle of the 7th.

The irony there is that if Votto doesn't steal second, and if not for the passed ball, Pence probably doesn't make that catch.

Astros introduce Aroildis Chapman to his first MLB earned runs.  HOU 5, CIN 3. No outs, runners at 1B and 2B. B7.

That fly ball to the fence is a play that demonstrates why I'd like to see baseball on tv from a point-of-view behind home plate. I can't understand why we're still stuck seeing the play from behind the pitcher every time. Can't they try something different?
