Earl Snyder provided the 1 run for the Bats by hitting his 13th homerun of the season in the 2nd inning. The HR gave the Bats a short lived 1-0 lead. Will Bergolla was the only Bats player to have a multihit game, going 2-3 on the night.

Steven Kelly received the loss by going 4 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits, 3 walks, and struck out 2. The Bats bullpen of Robbins and Shearn collapsed in the 7th when they combined to give up 7 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks, while striking out 2.

    Good grief, Homer Bailey is a stud. But what is Asadoorian doing playing in the field? He needs to be in the bullpen!

    By the way, Chris, I’m taking my Chinese brother to Cincinnati next weekend. Wanna go?

    No, you agree with Chris W about the trade; you disagree with Chris. Two different Redleg Nation editors there. 🙂

    See, even the RN editors don’t agree all the time. That’s why you’re welcome to comment. We all love the Reds, we just don’t agree on everything. As long as you are prepared to back up your argument, discussion is good here.

    Chris Gruler started but left the GCL Reds game after 1.2 innings. Any word on why?
