Cincinnati Reds: Anthony DeSclafani having trouble closing the deal

Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani is still struggling to get that final out. Twice during last night’s game against the Washington Nationals, Disco surrendered a home run with runners on base and two outs in the inning. DeSclafani has not been able to close the deal when the situation favors him the most.

The Reds started out last night’s game in D.C. with a bang. On the very first pitch from Nationals starter Erick Fedde, leadoff batter Jesse Winker sent a ball over the left field fence and gave the Reds a 1-0 lead.
