v. CIN: 2-0, 1.19 ERA, 1.235 WHIP (4 GS)
@ PNC: 6-5, 4.15 ERA, 1.456 WHIP (22 G, 20 GS)
last 7: 1-3, 6.35 ERA, 1.765 WHIP (PIT: 2-5)

.179/.313/.284, HR, 2 RBI, 12 BB, 9 SO v. current CIN roster
- Cozart with only HR

Locke has gone backwards since gaining his All-Star nod (2-4, 5.43 ERA, 1.811 WHIP), and walks are a leading cause (35 BB in 56.1 IP, 5.59 BB/9). He’s looked better since the beginning of September. And how do you explain Arroyo’s dominance of Cutch? Some things just aren’t supposed to make sense, I guess.
