Good news! Aroldis Chapman pitched a clean *eighth* inning. Chapman has now pitched five innings for the Reds in the month of August — the same number that David Holmberg and Pedro Villareal have thrown and fewer than Dylan Axelrod. And only four more than Skip Schumaker.

He has resumed a first-person love affair with the Cincinnati Reds and is a season ticket holder at Great American Ball Park.
