Crosley Field Terrace calls last night’s win “the least exciting comeback win ever,” but I will take it. Another incredible performance by Edinson Volquez, though he didn’t get the win:

Volquez gave up one earned run, two hits and two walks over six innings with a career-high 12 strikeouts. The fastball was dynamite at 96 mph and the 84 mph changeup often froze bats in their places.

“Today, I had better command of my fastball,” Volquez said. “All my pitches were there tonight.”

This kid continues to be simply amazing. Check out this page, where you will see Volquez’s face as the Major League leader in strikeouts and ERA (you’ll also see the guy who was traded for Volquez; he’s leading the majors in RBI).

Unreal….
