Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh, 26 August 2005

Aaron Harang (8-11, 3.78) vs. Mark Redman (5-13, 4.78). You may not be down with Harang, but he's quietly becoming one of the best pitchers nobody really thinks much about. Baseball Prospectus points out that Harang was bad last year before being diagnosed with a sore elbow and solid after he returned, so this year probably shouldn't be a surprise. In any case, he has maintained his strikeout rate this year while reducing his walks and keeping his homerific tendencies in check. He's not a star, but he's good, and in Cincinnati, that should be cause for celebration.
