It was an abbreviated night all around for the Reds on Monday…
This was a marathon! Wilkin Castillo went 3-6 with a homerun, double, 2 rbis, and a run scored for the Bats. Drew Sutton scored 2 runs on a 3-7 night at the plate that included a single, double, and triple. Zack Cozart hit his 2nd homerun of the season and added a triple in a 2-7 night at the dish. Chris Heisey only had 1 hit in 6 trips to the plate but his 1 hit was his 4th homerun of the season.
The Bats were able to tie this game up on several occasions late. Trailing 4-2 in the 8th, the Bats managed to knot the game back up at 4-4. After watching Indy score in the 13th and 14th innings, the Bats managed to plate a run to tie the game back up. However, the Bats were unable to match the Indy run scored in the top half of the 15th inning.
Yonder Alonso, starting at firstbase in this contest, went 2-4 with an rbi and a strikeout. Yonder is batting .310 with a .980 OPS in his last 10 games for the Mudcats. Brandon Yarbrough also went 2-4 and scored a run.
The pitching was bad all the way around for the Mudcats. I guess it is worth mentioning that Mike Stanton belted 3 homeruns and drove in 7 for Jacksonville in this game.
High A and A
Both Lynchburg and Dayton had the night off on Monday.
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
