|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Reds closer Aroldis Chapman throws scoreless ninth inning to earn win
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/12/15) Closer Aroldis Chapman (2-2) came on in a tie game Tuesday to hold the Braves scoreless in the top of the ninth inning and took the win when the Reds rallied to win it in the bottom half.|
Chapman took the loss in both of the Reds' two previous games and had not allowed a run all season until the recent hiccup.
Reds' Tucker Barnhart takes blame for game-deciding wild pitch
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart took full responsibility for what decided Monday's game against the Braves. Closer Aroldis Chapman's pitch went through Barnhart's glove, allowing a go-ahead run to score in the ninth inning.
"I've got to catch the ball, it's that simple," Barnhart said to MLB.com. "That doesn't matter -- 110, 120 [mph], it doesn't matter. That ball has to be caught. There's no excuse."
Manager Bryan Price didn't solely blame Barnahart for the error.
"It was just a pitch that got away," Price said. "It's hard when you're throwing that hard and the ball cuts instead of sinks. It's a tough position to play with a guy that throws like Chappy does. It's a lot of velocity and a lot of action."
Reds P Mike Leake gives up one run in no-decision
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Reds pitcher Mike Leake allowed only one earned run during Monday night's 2-1 loss to the Braves.
Leake didn't have his best stuff as he gave up eight hits and two walks while only striking out one batter. However, through six innings he was able to keep the Braves' batters at bay enough to keep the game tied 1-1 when he left.
Aroldis Chapman pitched the top of the ninth and gave up a run on a willd pitch to lose the game.
After throwing nine strikeouts against the Cubs on April 24, Leake has only struck out a total of six batters in his past three games.
Leake's next start is projected for Sunday against the Giants.
Reds' Aroldis Chapman takes loss Sunday vs. White Sox
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman suffered a loss Sunday, allowing one earned run on three hits in two-thirds of an inning while striking out one in his team's 4-3 defaet against the White Sox.
Chapman (1-1) was able to get two quick outs after his team tied the game in the top of the ninth, but the White Sox strung together three straight two-out hits to pull out the win. It was the first run allowed this season by Chapman, who has a 0.68 ERA and 23:6 K:BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings.
|2014 summary: After getting struck in the head by a line drive during a spring training game, Aroldis Chapman figured to miss a sizeable chunk of the season, but incredibly, he was back on the mound for the Reds on May 11. He made up for lost time by saving 36 games in 38 chances, falling just two saves short of his career high established in each of the previous two seasons. Improbably, Chapman also struck out nearly two batters per inning for a career-high 17.7 K/9 ratio. In fact, only Dellin Betances and Wade Davis had a higher strikeout total among relievers.|
Playing time status: It appears that the days of Chapman being considered as a rotation option are finally behind us. Look for Chapman to embark on his fourth season as the Reds' closer.
2015 outlook: Among closers, only Craig Kimbrel and Greg Holland earned more Fantasy points per game last season than Chapman, and he trailed them by a narrow margin. There's no reason to doubt Chapman's status as an elite reliever, and he should be one of the top three relievers taken in mixed league drafts.
