Raising Reds – 4/26/16: No Wins?

See that? It’s called home plate. The idea is for players to run across it and produce something called a run. (Photo:Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports)

A rather gloom-filled day all around Redsland. Not only were folks lamenting another one-hit output from the Reds offense, the four affiliates in action couldn’t muster a win either. In fact, between the five teams (Reds and four farm clubs), they combined for a total of five stinkin’ runs. Five teams. Five total runs.

Seriously…five. And I don’t mean anything related to Subway either…

Louisville Bats

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Gwinnett (12-11) 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 2 6 1
Louisville (10-12) 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 5 1

W: Gilmartin (2-0, 2.40) ; L: Pino (0-2, 2.16) ; SV: Buchter (1)

Emmanuel Burriss: 2-4, RBI (1)
Armando Galarraga: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, BB, 5 SP

IN his last outing, Galarraga had to leave due to injury. His firs game back was a great effort, but the Bats were unable to supply him any more offense than a Burriss 1st-inning singled which pushed Billy Hamilton across the plate.

Next Game: tonight v. Lehigh Valley, 6:05 PM ET

Pensacola Blue Wahoos

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Pensacola (9-12) 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 3 7 1
Tennessee (13-9) 0 0 0 2 0 2 1 0 X 5 8 0

W: Cabrera, A (3-1, 3.99) ; L: Renken (1-2, 3.47) ; SV: McNutt (2)

David Vidal: 2-2

The big story from this game? Blue Wahoos skipper Delino DeShields received his first ejection of the season. Well, Pensacola did attempt a late rally, but as indicative of teh score, came up a wee bit short.

Next Game: tonight @ Tennessee, 6:15 PM ET

Bakersfield Blaze

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Visalia (14-8) 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 6 0
Bakersfield (5-17) 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 4 0

W: Bradley, A (2-0, 1.26) ; L: Contreras (1-2, 2.92) ; SV: Barrett (6)

Ryan Wright: 2-4, RBI (6)

The Blaze had potential to score more than that solo run on the 3rd. They had runners on first and second with only one out. A whiff and a pickoff, two outs without a ball leaving the infield, ended the threat.

Next Game: tonight v. Visalia, 10:15 PM

Dayton Dragons

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Peoria (9-9) 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 3 8 0
Dayton (7-14) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 2

W: Hernandez, H (1-1, 3.52) ; L: Stephenson (0-3, 5.48) ; SV: Petrick (3)

Joe Hudson: 2-4
Robert Stephenson: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 SO

Remarkably enough, this was Robert Stephenson’s longest outing of the young season. And, the outing which produced his least number of strikeouts.

Next Game: tonight v. Peoria, 7:00 PM ET
