2015 Reds, 1990 Score style: Anthony DeSclafani

Anthony DeSclafani Cincinnati Reds

The rookie right-hander put on a pitching clinic yesterday in Chicago, only giving up two hits to the Cubs over a tremendous seven-inning outing. Of course, the bullpen made it a nail-biter by allowing two runs to score in the eighth inning, but Aroldis Chapman shut down the Chicago offense in the ninth to give Anthony DeSclafani his first Reds win.

Acquired in the Mat Latos trade, DeSclafani has outpitched the sullen former Red in their first two outings. DeSclafani is 1-0 in two starts with a 1.38 ERA and 11 strikeouts; Latos is 0-2 with a 17.36 ERA and only 5 K’s. While it is certainly too early to declare DeSclafani the Rookie of the Year, he is off to a strong start.
