Reds 4, Rockies 1

CINCINNATI — Aroldis Chapman made his first major-league appearance since being hit above the eye by a line drive during spring training, striking out the side in the ninth with his 100 mph fastball to close out the Reds' victory. "I am really happy to get out there for the first time," said Chapman through a translator. "They are a good team, but I was mentally prepared to face them. Facing those type of hitters make you feel better than if you just break the ice."
