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 C Tucker Barnhart gets nod vs. Braves
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/11/15) Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart only has six starts on the season, but he will get the nod Monday as Cincinnati opens a series against the Braves.
One of Barnhart's previous starts came on April 30 against Atlanta pitcher Shelby Miller, the same hurler whom the Reds will face Monday. Barnhart hit a home run off Miller in that game, one of five Reds in the starting lineup who have taken Miller deep, including starting pitcher Mike Leake.
Barnhart is hitting .250 on the season with two homers and two RBIs.
