For games played 4/6/2013

Minor League Player of the Day: 2010’s 6th round pick, Andrew Cisco, picked up his first win and continued where he left off at Billings last season. He threw 6 innings, allowing only 3 hits and a walk, while striking out 8. The run came on a solo homer.

AAA
Louisville 6 – Toledo 4

For the second day in a row, the Bats prevaled 6-4. Recently designated 2B Jason Donald was the offensive star for the Bats, going 4-5 with 2 doubles, he also made his second error of the young season.

Billy Hamilton did not play.

6’7″ RH starter Greg Reynolds had a rough start, going 4 innings allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks. Chad Reineke got the win, throwing 4 hitless/scoreless innings, allowing a walk and striking out 4. Justin Freeman picked up his first AAA save, in a shaky inning, allowing 2 hits and a run.

AA
Tennessee 9 – Pensacola 1 12 innings

Tim Crabbe had a nice start, going 5 innings allowing 1 run (solo homer) on 2 hits, walking 2 and striking out 5. Yohan Pino followed him with another very good outing, 3 IP 0 R 1 H 1 BB 2 K. Drew Hayes and Curtis Partch also threw scoreless innings.

Left hander Lee Hyde didn’t fair as well. After throwing a scoreless 11th, he pitched to 7 batters in the 12th and didn’t retire anyone. He ended up giving up 7 runs (6 earned) in the inning. Josh Ravin came in and in 2/3 of an inning, allowed 2 hits and a run of his own. Logan Ondrusek came in and got the final out.

But it shouldn’t have come to that, there wasn’t a lot of offense from the Wahoos last night. They only collected 5 hits in 12 innings, none for extra bases. The only person with a multi-hit night was LF Steve Selsky, who went 2-4 with a walk.

Delino DeShields rested Donald Lutz and Tucker Barnhart (after multi-hit games?) Saturday.

High A
Stockton 7 – Bakersfield 3

The Blaze continue to search for their first win, as they lose their third in a row to the Ports.

Michael Gilmartin, who played for Stockton last season, went 2-4 in the leadoff spot with a homer in his first action of the young season.

Bad night for the Blaze pitching staff also, as Jon Moscot got his first start and gave up 4 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks (did strike out 4) in 3 2/3 of action. Jake Johnson followed him to the hill and gave up two runs on 4 hits in 2.1 innings. Jimmy Moran finished up with 2 innings, giving up a run on 2 hits (striking out 4).

Low A
Dayton 8 – West Michigan 3

Dragons got into the win column on Saturday. Drew Cisco gave them a very good start, throwing 6 innings of 1 run baseball, giving up 3 hits, walking one, and striking out 8. Jesus Adames followed him with 2 scoreless innings with a hit and 2 K’s. Sean Lucas had a shaky 9th, giving up 3 hits and 2 runs.

Carlos Sanchez was 2-3 with a double and a walk.

2012’s 12th round pick, Brent Peterson got his first action of the season, a start at SS, and made the most of it. He went 3-3 and knocked in and scored 2 runs (also a sacrifice).

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.
