Stayed tuned for “Down on the Farm” tomorrow, but here’s a quick look at what the Reds’ affiliates are doing on tonight’s minor league opening day. It was an ugly night, as all four teams lost.
But, hey, the Reds won!
Louisville lost to Ottawa. Justin Germano and Ryan Wagner were ineffective.
Phil Dumatrait pitched six innings of one-hit ball for Chattanooga, which is nice to see. Unfortunately, Jacksonville won 2-0 on a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth by Brad Cresse.
Homer Bailey made the start for Sarasota, and was somewhat effective in a 7-3 loss for the Reds. He gave up two earned runs in 4.2 innings on the mound.
In Dayton, Travis Wood got roughed up and Dayton took it on the chin from South Bend.
