The Reds' FSN Midwest backup play-by-play guy (Jeff Piecoro?), in the bottom of the ninth:Edwin Encarnacion is one of the hardest workers on the team ... Let's see if that helps him here against one of the top closers in the National League, Derrick Turnbow!
Turnbow on the year:
Turnbow, July 2006:
.388 (!) BAA
That's right. In the month of July, hitters are batting .388 against Derrick Turnbow. That's all hitters.
Later, after Turnbow walked Encarnacion:
If you're Ned Yost, what do you do here? Do you stick with your All-Star closer?
Yost immediately inserted Francisco Cordero.
