The Final | Padres 6 – Reds 2

The Reds offense didn’t get going much during the night game against San Diego. Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, and Kyle Farmer all had extra-base hits in the game. Farmer’s triple drove in a run. Nick Senzel would add a sac fly for the other Reds run.

The story of the night for Cincinnati was Sonny Gray making his spring and Reds debut. The right-handed pitcher tossed two shutout frames and had three strikeouts. Matt Wisler threw two shutout innings to follow Gray before giving way to a pair of lefties. Amir Garrett and Cody Reed both threw a perfect inning each. The Padres got things going in the seventh inning when Jesus Reyes gave up a grand slam to Francisco Mejia. You can see the entire box score for the game right here.

    Full line up, ordering is still off though

    Votto 1st pitch swinging with a 4-bouncer up the middle for a hit.

  3. Warren Leeman

    Somebody explain how that’s not batter’s interference…

      I saw the same thing, could it be Farmer didn’t make contact with Machado? He seemed to step around him which put the throw on the 3B side of 2B.

  4. Indy Red Man

    I had to look up Farmer. He hit .317 (347 ab’s) in 2017 in the minors. I don’t know how he is defensively, but it might be nice to keep him around for insurance.

  5. Warren Leeman

    Nice initial outing by Gray 2.0 IP w/ 2H & 3-SO.

  6. Warren Leeman

    Puig with a hustle double , running hard out of the box. More of this please.
    Then aggressively takes 3B on a ball that rolled away from the catcher. More of this please. Scores on a sac fly.

    That is particularly good news on Sonny Gray there Cossack. Especially with the mews on Wood not being good. Only 2 weeks left of camp.

    • Doug Gray

      Soon, but they never actually say when they are coming.
