Aroldis Chapman Apparently, Aroldis Chapman is human.

The Reds used Chapman in the middle of an inning for the first time and he allowed not only his first big league hit, but also his first run.

Chapman entered the game with two outs and the Reds trailing by a run, 5-4.

Eric Young Jr. got the first hit off Chapman, a singled up the middle on a 98.6 mph fastball, scoring Seth Smith. Dexter Fowler then hit a hard ball at Paul Janish, who was knocked backwards and tried to get a force at second, but threw it over the head of Brandon Phillips, scoring Chris Nelson, scored as an error.

Carlos Gonzalez then hit a little bouncer over Chapman's head that third baseman Juan Francisco couldn't handle, loading the bases. After throwing a 103.1 mph fastball to Troy Tulowitzki, Ryan Hanigan had one go by him for a passed ball, scoring another run. Chapman then got Tulowitzki swinging at a slider to end the inning.

Chapman's final line -- 1/3 of an inning, three hits and an unearned run with a strikeout. He threw 16 pitches -- nine were clocked at 100 mph or better.
