Double – A

Tennessee 16 – Carolina 9

The Reds led 5-2 after an inning of play, but then trailed 10-5 after 2 innings thanks to an 8 run inning by the Smokies.  Jerry Gil made the start, and the outing went about like most of his trips to the mound.  Gil allowed 6 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks while striking out 2 in 1.1 inning of work.  On the year, Gil is now 2-3 with a 9.39 ERA in 38.1 innings pitched.  He has 43 walks compared to 23 strikeouts in Double – A.  Yes, that is correct!

Zack Cozart went 3-4 with 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, and an rbi.  Shaun Cumberland and Sean Henry each had 2 hits.  Both scored a run and drove in 2 rbis.  Redleg Nation Spotlight Player Logan Parker hit his 6th homerun of the season, walked twice, and drove in 2 rbis.

Class A Advanced

The Sarasota Reds did not play yesterday.

Single – A

South Bend 7 – Dayton 3

Sulbaran allowed 3 runs on 5 hits while striking out 4 in 6 innings to fall to 3-5 on the season.  Scott Gaffney really had it rough, allowing 4 runs on 5 hits in just .1 innings pitched.

Alexis Oliveras scored 2 runs and went 2-3 at the plate with a double.  Humberto Sosa had a single and a double in 4 plate appearances.

Rookie Leagues

GCL Twins 5 – GCL Reds 1

Dallas Buck, acquired by the Reds in the Dunn trade with Arizona, made his first start in a long while.  He pitched only 1 inning, allowing a hit and striking out 1.  Not sure if he reinjured himself or if this was the plan.  Harold Johnson came in and pitched 6 innings of relief, allowing 3 runs on 6 hits and a walk to pick up the loss and fall to 2-2 on the season.

The offense managed just 4 hits and did not draw a walk while striking out 11 times collectively.

The Billings Mustangs did not play yesterday.
