Homer Bailey: A+
Line: 7 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 10 K
After his no-hitter a few weeks ago, there were certainly high expectations for Homer Bailey coming into his first postseason start of the year. He certainly lived up to them with an outstanding performance. It took until there were two outs in the sixth inning for the Giants to finally get a hit off Bailey. If Bailey is able to pitch like this throughout the postseason, the Reds are the team to beat.
Sean Marshall: A+

Sean Marshall was brought on for one inning and he did exactly what the Reds needed him to do. He kept the Giants scoreless and did not allow any of them to reach base.
Aroldis Chapman: A+
Line: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Three up and three down. Aroldis Chapman showed up his blazing fastball and Giants hitters simply looked overmatched.
Jonathan Broxton: D+
Line: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
After getting off to an inauspicious start and allowing two consecutive singles, Broxton was able to turn things around and strike out Brandon Belt and Xavier Nady. Following a passed ball and a error by Scott Rolen, the Giants were able to get a run in the 10th.
