Chapman gets save in return as Reds clip Rockies
Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Homer Bailey pitched 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball and helped the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-1 win over the Colorado Rockies in the rubber match of a three-game set.
Bailey (3-2) allowed four hits and two walks with six strikeouts for the Reds, who welcomed back All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman.
Chapman took a gruesome comebacker to the face in spring training off the bat of Kansas City's Salvador Perez that required the insertion of a metal plate above his left eye.
Chapman allowed a leadoff walk in the ninth and proceeded to strike out the side for his first save of the season.
Todd Frazier homered, Skip Schumaker drove in two and Billy Hamilton tripled and scored a run in the win.
Charlie Blackmon hit a homer to account for the only Colorado run. Rockies starter Juan Nicasio (4-2) was charged with four runs -- two earned -- on five hits over six innings.
