Louisville 11 – Scranton WB 0

The Bats got the offense rolling last night, pounding out 16 hits and scoring 11 runs.  Six different Bats hitters each had at least 2 hits and we’ll mention each and every one!  Alvin Colina probably had the best night, going 2-3 with 2 runs scored, a homerun, and 5 runs driven in.  It was Colina’s first homerun of the season.  Jerry Hairston, Jr kept his batting average at .500 thanks to a 3-6 night at the plate.  Jerry also drove in 2 runs.  Chris Dickerson continues to try and get out of his early season slump.  Dickerson went 2-6 to raise his average to .150.  Jay Bruce went 2-5 in the game, scoring a run and drawing a walk.  Unfortunately he also struckout 3 times.  Drew Anderson went 2-4 last night, with a double, walk, rbi, and scored twice.  Finally, Paul Janish completed the 2-hit night, tallying 2 hits in 5 at-bats and scored a run. 

Tom Shearn was the beneficiary of the offensive support.  Shearn went 5 innings, scattering just 3 hits, a walk, and struck out 2.  Shearn has not given up a run in 2 starts, going 10 scoreless innings.

Birmingham 4 – Chattanooga 0

Michael Griffin went 2-4 with 2 doubles and B.J. Szymanski went 2-3 with 2 singles.  These 2 accounted for 4 of the 5 Lookouts hits on the night. 

Danny Herrera pitched 3.2 innings in relief in this one, allowing 1 unearned run.  Herrera has not allowed an earned run in 8.2 innings pitched this season.  However he has walked 5 while striking out just 4 in that span. 

Lakeland 4 – Sarasota 2

The Reds would have been shutout in this one had Juan Francisco not hit a 2-run homer in the top of the 9th inning.  It was Juan’s first homerun of the season and it prevented him from striking out again.  Francisco was 1-4 with 3 Ks on the night.  Jason Louwsma and Chris Valaika each went 2-4 in the game.

Lee Tabor pitched 3 near perfect innings in relief for the Reds.  Tabor allowed 0 hits and walked just 1 while striking out 2.  He is yet to be scored upon, or hit upon, in 5 innings of relief this season.  Tabor was the Reds 30th round draft pick in the 2006 draft.  Alexander Smith dropped to 0-2 in the start.  Smit threw 4 innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk while striking out 6. 

Dayton 8 – Fort Wayne 5

Todd Frazier led the Dragons offensive surge with a 3-4 night at the plate.  Frazier had a single, double, homerun, scored twice, and added 3 rbis.  His 2-run homer in the first was his 4th homerun of the season.  Keltavious Jones went 2-4 on the night with a double and 2 runs scored and Brandon Waring was a perfect 2-2 at the dish with a double, 2 runs scored, and 2 walks.  Waring has a 1.411 OPS in the early going of the season while Frazier’s is a “mediocre” 1.811!

Jeremy Horst picked up the win in relief by going 4 shutout innings.  He allowed just 1 hit while striking out 4. 

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

  1. Frazier is doing what a top college hitter should be doing at low-A. That’s not a knock. It’s encouraging.

    2B – 3
    HR – 4
    BB – 8
    K – 2

  2. Frazier won’t be in Dayton long…at least he shouldn’t be.

  3. Hairston Jr is tearing it up. Why is he not with the big instaed of Castro (.000).

  4. Colina’s clicking too. I feel safe that a pinch hitter can easily be summoned from the AAA squad.
