When you’re hitting .366/.394/.665 on the season and are batting .514 over your last 10 games and have 5 homeruns, you have to get a look at the bigs some time, correct? Well, that is all Jay Bruce is doing. I know, I know, we seem to say this 2-3 times per week. But Jay went 2-4 in yesterday’s game, driving in an rbi, his 37th of the season. Kevin Barker also went 2-4 in the game for the Bats.
Adam Pettyjohn lost his first game of the season, giving up 5 runs on 4 hits while walking 3. He struck out 4 in 6 innings of work. Adam’s record is better than his ERA would indicate. At 4-1, his ERA is now 5.01.
The Lookouts had a day off yesterday.
Juan Francisco went 2-4 with an rbi. Juan is now batting .297/.307/.500 on the season. He has a whopping 40 strikeouts on the season compared to just 3 walks.
Travis Wood dropped to 3-4 by allowing 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings pitched. Wood struck out 4. His ERA is now 2.70 in 46.2 innings pitched.
Brandon Waring had a double and Devin Mesoraco had a triple to account for 2 of the Dragons 4 hits in the extra innings loss. The double was Brandon’s 9th of the season and the triple was Mesoraco’s first.
Luis Montano pitched 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 4 hits and a walk while striking out 6. He now has a 3.00 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 48 innings pitched this season.
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
