The Reds lost to the Indians yesterday evening, 3-2, in the fourth straight game I’ve been able to watch on television (a spring training record for me; thanks, DirecTV!). However, Paul Wilson had a good outing on the mound, allowing no earned runs in six innings. I’ll take that, especially coming on the heels of a couple of pretty good performances by Ramon Ortiz and Aaron Harang the last two days.
Ben Weber and Matt Belisle threw a couple of good innings, and Jacob Cruz was the only Red with two hits. Felipe Lopez made an error, which doesn’t help his chances of winning the shortstop job (if he actually had a chance in the first place).
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
