Phil Dumatrait dropped to 7-5 in the first game of the double header. Phil gave up 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings. Kirk Saarloos also saw action and gave up a run on 2 hits and a walk. Saarloos has given up 14 hits and 2 walks over 8.2 innings in Louisville.

Buffalo 4, Louisville 3 (final 10)

In the 2nd game of the night, Louisville was able to outhit Buffalo 14-5, but was not able to score enough runs to take home the extra inning win. Jessee Gutierrez led the Bats going 3-4 with 2 doubles and a run scored. Joey Votto struggled, going 0-5 with 4 Ks.

Chattanooga 1, Birmingham 0

Make it 3 consecutive shutouts by the Lookouts over Birmingham. James Avery got the start and went 6.1 innings, allowing 3 hits and 3 walks. Calvin Medlock pitched an inning and 2/3 and allowed 1 hit while striking out 2. Medlock has pitched 47.2 innings this season, allowing 35 hits and just 5 walks. He has also recorded 59 strikeouts in that span. In his last 10 games, he’s pitched 16 innings, allowing just 2 runs. Carlos Guerava recorded his 9th save of the season by striking out the side in the 9th, allowing 1 hit. Carlos now has 47 K’s in 34.1 innings pitched.

Caonabo Cosme supplied the offense for the Lookouts. Chattanooga had just 2 hits, both off the bat of Cosme. Cosme went 2-3 in the game with a double and scored the only run of the game.

Sarasota 7, Clearwater 4

DH Michael Griffin had a nice game going 2-5 with a double, homerun, 2 runs scored and an rbi. The homerun was Griffin’s 6th on the season. Carson Kainer also had 2 hits, going 2-4 with 2 doubles and 2 runs batted in.

Johnny Cueto had a roller-coaster start. Cueto did not qualify for the win, going just 4 innings. Over that span, he allowed 5 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), no walks, and struck out 7. In his last 4 starts, Cueto has 30 strikeouts in 25 innings pitched. Carlos Bohorquez picked up the win in relief by pitching 3 innings, allowing 1 hit, 1 walk, and striking out 5. Bohorquez’s stats are pretty ugly other than this game. Anytime you lower your ERA from 11.12 to 7.27, it’s not a good sign!

Great Falls 9, Billings 6

22 year old outfielder Kyle Maunus went 2-5 with a double, run scored, and 3 rbis. 22 year old Brandon Menchaca, selected in the 13th round by the Reds in this season’s draft, went 2-5 with an rbi and run scored.
The GCL Reds had the night off.

  1. Cueto looked horrible yesterday, everything hit off him was a rocket. It seemed like all of his strikeuts came off heat… Saw Kainer for the first time, he looked impressive at the plate. I think he struck out once, but hit everhthing else HARD.

  2. Went to the Double Header yesterday here at Buffalo.
    Broken Shoulder, oh Broken Shoulder. he walked 3 blew a save and got 1 to ground out and 1 to Sac Fly out but walked in the tying run. Votto is a big boy in person. Singled sharply to left in game 1 the only highlight for the Bats in Gaame 1. He did struggle in left field. Sharp nasty wind. Phil Dumatrait pitch good at leaset. Game 2 started out much better for the Bats. Scoring 3 runs off Jermey Showers. But then Broken Shoulder came in and that was a flashback to the Reds bull pen. Brian Shackleford pitched effectively. Stone has some nasty stuff. Most scary moment was not seeing Votto struggle in left and decent play at 1st. Was Hector Luna taking a ball off his face. scary stuff.

  3. Majewski walked 3 in .2 innings? My god, he needs to hang em up and go work for his local Home Depot or something.

  4. …and then maybe Lowe’s will be convinced they need part time help so bad that they will trade two full time associates for Majewski’s part time work and a broken lawn fertilizer spreader. “LawnBoy” can examine the spreader before the trade to determine if it’s really broken, or just a little tired, and since LB sells products at both retailers, why shouldn’t Lowe’s just take their word on the condition of the spreader? Nah, no corporation would be that dumb.

  5. Daedalus,
    .2 innings??? So…Majewk Man got 2 outs then?!?! WooHoo!

  6. Bill and Justin, thanks for your game reports. They’re much appreciated. 🙂

    MiLB is reporting that Jay Bruce and Joey Votto will be appearing in the Futures Game in Seattle.

  7. Votto is a big boy. Struggled again today in the 2-1 Loss. great pitching I have been witnessed to minus Broken Shoulder and Dutchman.

  8. Keppinger is much better then I thought. and I forgot to type Didnt struggle today for Votto, 2 hits.
