A power arm like Aroldis Chapman will prove invaluable in the playoffs.

Needing only 10 pitches in a perfect ninth inning, flamethrower Aroldis Chapman finished the Reds’ 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday in Cincinnati.

The 25-year-old Chapman (4-5, 2.62 ERA) now has 35 saves in 40 opportunities this season.

Gunning the fastest recorded pitch in MLB history at 105.1 mph, the blazing southpaw remains one of the most intimidating men on the hill.

Defecting from Cuba and signing a six-year contract worth $30.25 million in January 2010, Chapman is a primary reason Cincinnati is 82-62 and contending with the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League Central.

A two-time All-Star who earned the Delivery Man of the Month Award in July 2012, Chapman gives Cincinnati an indispensable weapon.

With the overwhelming Aroldis Chapman as a stopper in “The Queen City,” the Reds can become kings and capture their sixth World Series title this autumn.
