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…
W: Gilmartin (2-0, 2.40) ; L: Pino (0-2, 2.16) ; SV: Buchter (1)
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
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
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
W: Hernandez, H (1-1, 3.52) ; L: Stephenson (0-3, 5.48) ; SV: Petrick (3)
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
