On top of that, he went 2-for-2, which were 2 of only 5 hits given up by Reds pitching to that point. One of his hits was a double. Almost too bad that the duel left him without a decision, his performance was definitely worthy of a W. Hope to see him in the rotation to start 2013.
Definitely an intriguing player for next year.
