Raising Reds: 4/4/13

On Raising Reds, we will look at the minor league games from the previous day and evening. We’ll also spotlight a Reds prospect and his performance for that day, too.

Something you may have or may not have noticed. On our bar where it says “The Farm”, if you mouse over that, you will see a listing of the Reds affiliates. For 2013, you will also be able to check to stats from those affiliates. A big thanks to Baseball Reference for providing a way to do this.

Last night, the farm had a walk-off win and suffered a walk-off loss.

Prospect of the Day
No question the first ever BRM Raising Reds Prospect of the Day goes to Tony Cingrani. In 6 innings, Cingrani whiffed 14 Mud Hens and allowed no hits. Yes, no hits. He tossed 84 pitches with 55 of those going for strikes. A shame he got a no-decision as the Bats ‘pen and defense were unable to hold the lead for him by allowing three runs in the top of the 9th.

I think Mr. Cingrani picked up right where he left off last season.
