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.
There isn’t much to comment on offensively other than Joey Votto had 1 of the 2 hits that the Bats had.
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.
Gary Majewski pitched .2 innings, giving up 0 runs but walked 3.
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.
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!
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.
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
