The Final Result | Giants 4 – Reds 3

The Reds lost for the second consecutive day, falling to the San Francisco Giants 4-3. You can see the entire box score for the game right here.

Jose Peraza continued to get a hit in every chance he has. The Reds shortstop went 2-2 this afternoon with another steal. He’s now 5-5 with 3 steals this spring. Scooter Gennett, Connor Joe, and Alfredo Rodriguez also grabbed two hits each in the game. Juan Graterol went 1-1 with an RBI and he’s still hitting 1.000 on the spring, too.

On the mound Brandon Finnegan threw a perfect inning with a strikeout. Zach Duke hit a batter in an otherwise perfect frame. Amir Garrett and Ian Krol tossed a shutout inning with a strikeout each. Jesus Reyes finished up the final two innings for Cincinnati in perfect fashion with four strikeouts.

    Did they consider using 4 outfielders in the inning that Finnegan pitches?

    Also, we could soon be seeing the Los Angles Angels of Long Beach of California of . . .

    Can’t believe the Reds pulled that deal off straight up.

  3. Phil

    So is Nick Senzel not available for this game? I know it is very early in spring training but I’m confused why he only played in 1 of the first 3 games and now isn’t listed for today.

      Laying the ground for the excuse they need to see him more in CF in the minors and getting Schebler ready to start the season there…just guessing

  4. Jim

    I’m happy to see Finnegan at least getting a long look. I know he’s been hurt, and last season was a disaster, but it wasn’t that long ago (2016) that he was an average to above-average starting pitcher. Would love to see him either have a good enough spring that he forces his way into the bullpen, or at least show enough improvement to be a decent trade piece.

    Save some for when it counts Jose!

  6. Mondo Duke

    Jose Siri already with his 2nd error in CF this spring. A defensive whiz he is not. Playing his way back to minor league camp.

    • Doug Gray

      He’s actually a really good defensive center fielder. Far and away the best one in camp.

      • Mondo Duke

        I don’t know about that. Far and away? Cowwah bunga. At least he hasn’t crashed into an outfield wall.

      • Doug Gray

        I’m guessing you’ve never watched him play for more than a few games if that’s your opinion. He’s a very good defensive center fielder. He’s been on the same teams as Taylor Trammell, Stuart Fairchild, Michael Beltre, TJ Friedl the last two seasons. Jose Siri’s played in center field over all of them.

    • Drrobo

      History shows he is a very good defensive CF.

    • Doug Gray

      I don’t get to Goodyear until Mid-March. Photos are all from last year.

    Stubbs had good plate discipline, he just also strikes out a lot but he at least drew walks. Siri needs to improve his ability to not swing at balls
