Reds come back!

The Reds wrested victory from the jaws of defeat this afternoon by coming back in the bottom of the 10th inning for three runs against Eric Gagne and Salmon Torres. In doing so, they absolved Edwin Encarnacion and Jared Burton of rather sloppy performances in the top of the 10th that led to two Brewers runs. Yay!

Here's the win probability graph, courtesy of Fangraphs:
Eddie's throwing error cost the Reds 0.133 WPA. His offense (including his two homers) netted a total of 0.215 WPA. So a net positive day for Eddie, but not by a whole lot.

Paul Bako continues to have a fairytale-like April with the Reds, today leading position players with +0.420 win probability added with the stick. Someday, one has to think he'll return to Earth. But it's fun while it lasts!
