Raising Reds: 4/19/13 Results


Only three games were played last night. A storm cell moved over Bayfront Stadium last night forcing the postponement of the Jacksonville-Pensacola game. Of the three games played, Reds affiliates squeezed out one win. Appears the Blaze bats are alive and well out in California.

Here’s how the farm fared last night.

Louisville Bats

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Indianapolis (11-5) 2 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 4 5 1
Louisville (8-7) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 2 2

W: Oliver, A (1-0, 2.11) ; L: Corcino (0-3, 6.94) ; SV: Morris, B (3)

Billy Hamilton: SB (10)

So you look at the line score above and think to yourself (or even say out loud) “two hits?” More to it. The Bats drew six walks in this game. I suppose you could say they saw the ball well enough to take a pitch here and there, but not make contact. They also struck out 14 times.

Daniel Corcino struggled with his control in this one as he walked 6 Indy batters. He was done after 3 innings of work. Lots of walks in Louisville last night. Bats pitchers issued 12 free passes.

Jason Donald leads the Bats in batting average at .310.

Next Game: today v. Indianapolis, 2:05 PM ET

Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Last night’s game was postponed. Next game is tonight v. Jacksonville, 7:05 PM ET.

Guess who’s tied for the team lead in steals? If your guess was Donald Lutz, you’re right. He and Devin Lohman both have swiped two bases.

Bakersfield Blaze

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Bakersfield (5-11) 0 0 0 4 4 0 0 0 1 9 16 0
Lancaster (9-6) 1 0 0 4 0 0 2 0 0 7 10 2

W: Doyle (1-0, 3.55) ; L: Rollins (2-1, 4.08) ; SV: Pearl (1)

Kyle Waldrop: 2-5, R, SB (2)
Juan Duran: 2-5, HR (1), RBI (3), 2 R
Yorman Rodriguez: 4-5, 2 RBI (11), 2 R
Juan Silverio: 3-4, RBI (5), 2 R
Dominic D’Anna: 2-4, HR (2), 3 RBI (6), R

Don’t look now but after dropping their first eight games of the season, the Blaze now own a three-game winning streak. Told you they were heating up. Just a few days ago, the team batting average was under .200. Now, it’s up to .238.

Tanner Robles continues his early season struggles going only four innings, allowing 6 hits and issuing 5 walks. In his 4 starts, he’s pitched 5+ innings only once.

Next Game: tonight @ Lancaster, 10:00 PM ET

Dayton Dragons

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Bowling Green (11-3) 0 3 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 5 14 0
Dayton (4-10) 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 2 7 4

W: Floro (1-0, 1.20) ; L: Romano (1-2, 1.69) ; SV: Sawyer, N (1)

Jesse Winker: 3-4, R
Jeff Gelalich (pictured): 2-4

Four errors? Don’t think I need to add much more…but I will anyway.

Nice to see Winker put a few hits on the board and Gelalich looks like he’s getting into the swing of things also. And the temperature at the beginning of the game: a balmy 41 degrees. Yipes, that’s cold, just like it was down the road in CIncy.

Next Game: tonight v. Bowling Green, 7:00 PM ET

Transactions from 4/19:

Bats: Activate Emmanuel Burriss from 7-day DL; Assign Ray Chang to Pensacola
