Justin Reed and Nefatli Soto each had 2 hits in the loss last night for the Reds. For Soto, he continues to just pound the ball. He’s now batting .404/.444/.544 in 14 games this season.
Errors really cost the young Reds in this game. The GCL squad committed 4 errors, including one by Soto who now has 6 thus far. Pitcher Brandon Rice really suffered due to the mistakes. Rice went 4 innings, allowed 5 runs (just 1 earned) on 3 hits and 1 walk.
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
