Here are the scores from August 14
Louisville 6, Durham 9
34 year old Pedro Swann went 1-5 with his 14th homerun of the season. He drove in his team high 66th homerun of the season.
On the pitching side, former 12th round pick of the Atlanta Braves in 1999 Ben Kozlowski didn’t pitch well in the start. The 24 year old pitcher went 4 1/3 allowing 7 runs on 6 hits, walking 3 and striking out 5. He has a 5.56 era in just over 22 innings pitched.
Mississippi 0, Chattanooga 11
Bust out the whooping sticks! 5th round draft pick in 2002, 22 year old Kevin Howard went 4-5 with 3 runs scored and 6 RBIs. The secondbaseman hit his 9th homerun in the 8th inning. He is now hitting .295/.345/.430 in 414 at bats this season.
Phillip Dumatrait pitched a gem for the lookouts going 6 innings, giving up 0 hits and striking out 7. One would think the manager would ahve left Dumatrait in considering he had a no hitter, however, Dumatrait experienced some control problems walking 6 in the game. On the season, Phillip is now 4-11 with a 3.40 era. Control seems to be the problem here as Dumatrait has issued 64 free passes in 111.1 innings pitched this season.
Clearwater 10, Sarasota 14
Sarasota scored a touchdown late after Clearwater had taken the lead on a 4th quarter field goal.
Bust out the whooping sticks! Sarasota belted 6 homeruns in this slug fest.
24 year old SS Hector Tiburcio went 2-4 with a homerun, run scored, and 4 runs batted in.
3b Mark Schramek went 3-4 including a homerun, 3 runs scored, and 2 rbis.
The Sarasota bullpen tried to blow the game, most notably Greg Adams who gave up 7 9th inning runs to make the game closer than it really was.
Clinton 11, Dayton 3
Ouch, put the whooping stick away!
22 year old Rafael Ramirez went 4 innings, giving up 4 hits and 3 runs to earn the loss.
Alexander Farfan, a 22 year old reliever for the Reds, pitched 2/3 of an inning in relief, surrendering 5 runs on 5 hits.
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
