Louisville 10, Buffalo 1

23 year-old, shortstop  Pedro Lopez went  2 for 4 with an RBI.  Lopez hit .242/.307/.323 at Charlotte in the international league and his first two games as a bat he is hitting .500/.600/.500.  I couldn’t find how the Reds acquired him, can anybody get me up to speed?

Re: Pedro Lopez, I think the White Sox put him on waivers and the Reds claimed him.

Yes, confirmed.

 

23 year-old, first baseman, Joey Votto (Reds #2 – 2002), went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI.  He is hitting .319/.426/.503.  Votto is getting on track, and it would seem he will be a Red either this year or next.  His plate discipline is awesome, even when he was slumping his walk rate was great.  I don’t expect him to put up .900 OPS in the majors, but I think he will be a solid contributor for a long time. 

26 year-old Michael Gosling (D’Backs #2 – 2002)pitched 6.2 innings giving up 6 H, 1 ER, and 0 BB while striking out just 1.  He has a 2.94 with 35 Ks, 53 H, and 16 BB in 52 IP.
