Games Played on 7/27/2013
Minor League Player of the Day: 21 year old right hander, Jon Moscot, threw 8 shutout innings for the Blaze. Moscot allowed only 3 hits and didn’t walk a batter, striking out 6. Moscot’s record went to 2-14, but don’t be fooled, the 2012 4th round draft pick has only allowed 109 hits in 115 innings of work. His 8.7/9 strikeout ratio is also very impressive.
Henry Rodriguez, Felix Perez, and Denis Phipps all went 2-4.
Ryan Dennick went 5.1, allowing 7 hits, but only a run, a walk and striking out 3.
Ryan LaMarre was the only Pensacola player with more than one hit, going 2-4.
Loek Van Mil fell to 0-7, giving up 2 runs (one earned) on 3 hits and 2 walks in 2 innings.
Jon Moscot threw 8 shutout innings, allowing only 3 hits and didn’t walk a batter, striking out 6. Jake Johnson threw a scoreless 9th, to finish the shutout win for the Blaze.
Juan Silva went 3-5 with a double. Junior Arias went 2-4 with 2 doubles, and Steve Selsky was 2-4 with a double and a walk. Kyle Waldrop and Yovan Gonzalez went 2-4. Juan Duran hit his 9th homer.
Beau Amaral went 2-5 and Daniel Pigott went 2-4 with a double and triple.
Drew Cisco went 5 strong innings, allowing 1 run (unearned) on 3 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 2. Wandy Peralta threw a scoreless inning and #1 pick, Michael Lorenzen picked up his first save (and kept his 0.00 ERA) with a perfect 9th.
Taylor Terraras went 2-4 and was the only Mustang with multiple hits. He also had an error.
Ben Lively continued his impressive start to his career, throwing 3 more shutout innings in his 7th start, still holding a 0.00 ERA. Last night he left the game with a no hitter, walking 2 and striking out 3.
Daniel Wright threw 4 impressive innings of relief, allowing only 1 run on 4 hits (a homer) without a walk and struck out 4. Abel De Los Santos took the loss, giving 4 runs (3 earned) on 4 hits and 2 walks in 1.1 innings.
AZL Reds and AZL Indians were postponed.
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.
