Police in the Columbus suburb of Grove City emailed The Associated Press a copy of an arrest report showing the 24-year-old reliever was stopped after radar clocked him going 93 mph on northbound Interstate 71 shortly before 1 a.m. on Monday.
That was a few hours after Chapman moved to the front of the competition for the closer's job by finishing a 5-2 win over the Yankees in New York on Sunday for his first save of the season and the second of his career.
''I don't know what happened,'' Baker said after the meeting with Chapman. ''He got a speeding tick...

Usually Cincinnatians go crazy when Aroldis Chapman hits a high number on the radar gun. Well, when that radar gun is attached to a police cruiser and the high MPH is your driving skills, it isn't as exciting.

The Cincinnati Bullpen has been a pleasant surprise after suffering multiple injuries. Aroldis Chapman still has a zero ERA and Logan Ondrusek did not allow a run until Thursday. Sean Marshall set up the Reds win on Sunday and they're hoping he'll regain the form he had in that role while with the Cubs. Add in Jose Arredondo and Reds fans may hearken back to the days of the Nasty Boys.

Slumping Ryan Ludwick broke out with three hits, a home run and three RBIs, and Ryan Hanigan also homered for the Reds, who rallied to beat the Yankees 5-2. The Yankees...
