Game Played on 09/10/12
Bakersfield leads the five game series 2 – 1.
Going on the road didn’t sit well with the Blaze, as they got whipped up on at Modesto….
Travis Mattair went 2-4 and accounted for the only Bakersfield run, with a homer.
The Blaze were out of this game early, giving up 4 in the first and 2 in the second… Stalin Gerson threw an inning plus, giving up 6 runs (5 earned) on 4 hits (3 homers) and 2 walks.
Blaine Howell, Brooks Pinckard, and Kyle McMyne all threw 2 scoreless innings each, but then Andrew Brackman gave up 6 runs in the 8th on 5 hits and 2 walks.
Game 4 is tonight at Modesto.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
