Games played on Tuesday, June 2

Triple – A

Louisville 6 – Pawtucket 0

A super outing by Homer Bailey. Bailey pitched 8 terrific innings, scattering 4 hits and walking 2 while striking out 8.  He threw 118 pitches over those 8 innings, 77 of which were for strikes.  It was talked about during the telecast last night as to who will replace Volquez in his next start and considering Bailey threw 8 innings last night, it will likely not be him.  Nonetheless, a great start by Bailey last night as he improves to 5-5 on the year for the Bats.

For the offense, Drew Stubbs, Darnell McDonald, Kevin Barker, and Craig Tatum had 2 hits apiece.  Drew Sutton hit his 2nd homerun of the season in the 3rd inning and McDonald homered in the 1st inning.  It was Darnell’s 2nd homerun for the Bats. 

Double – A

Carolina 1 – Tennessee 0; final 10

Fresh from being named the Redleg Nation player of the month for the month of May, Travis Wood went out and showed why he earned that award.  Wood pitched 6 scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 6.  Wood’s ERA is now at 1.38 on the season.  Logan Ondrusek kept the Mudcats in it by pitching 2 scoreless innings in relief.  Ondrusek has yet to allow a run in Carolina in 9.2 innings pitched.  He allowed only 2 earned runs in 18.2 innings of work in Sarasota before being called up.

Todd Frazier  went 3-5 for the Mudcats but it was Juan Francisco‘s solo, walkoff homerun in the 10th inning that provided the win for Carolina.

Class A Advanced

Sarasota 6 – Daytona 1

Denis Phipps went 2-4 with a triple, 2 runs scored, and 2 runs batted in.  Jason Louwsma homered and drew 2 walks in 4 plate appearances.  Louwsma scored a run and drove in 2.

Jerry Gil won his 3rd consecutive start after losing 6 of his first 7 and going 0-6 in that stretch.  Gil is now 3-6 thanks to a 1 run, 4 hit, 4 walk, 1 strikeout performance over 5 innings yesterday.  Gil dropped his ERA to 6.60 on the season. 

Single – A

South Bend 3 – Dayton 1

Cody Puckett and Stephen Chapman each went 2-4 with a double.  Puckett’s and Chapman’s 2 hits accounted for all 4 Dragons hits in the game.

J.C. Sulbaran pitched well, but picked up a no decision.  Sulbaran pitched 6 strong innings, allowing 1 run on 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 7.  Sulbaran has 43 strikeouts in 37 innings pitched.

 

So in recap, a pretty nice day for the Reds farm system.  In 4 games, the 4 teams combined to allow 4 runs and go 3-1 on the day.  We had 2 shutouts turned in at our top 2 levels, with one of those ending with a walkoff homerun in the 10th inning.
