With Aroldis Chapman as a stopper, the Cincinnati Reds can capture their sixth World Series title this autumn


Aroldis Chapman is an extraordinary talent on the diamond.

Rebounding from a rough stretch, Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman sealed a 6-4 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday in Arlington.

An utterly dominant hurler, the 25-year-old Chapman (3-3, 2.65 ERA) now has 20 saves this season.

Gunning the fastest recorded pitch in MLB history at 105.1 mph, the 6-foot-4, 200 pound Chapman 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 46-35 and contending with the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League Central.

A 2012 All-Star who twice earned the Delivery Man of the Month Award, the southpaw 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.
