The Final | Brewers 10- Reds 8

If this were a regular season game there would be riots at Great American Ballpark. But it’s not and the game didn’t matter. The Reds took an 8-1 lead in the 4th inning before watching the Brewers score 9 unanswered runs over the next three innings.

Matt Kemp had two doubles and two runs batted in. Scooter Gennett walked and doubled on the day. Jesse Winker and Yasiel Puig both homered. On the mound Michael Lorenzen, Wandy Peralta, and Jimmy Herget fired perfect relief appearances. You can see the entire box score for the game right here.

    Special reason for 2 right fielders? Just joking.

    Split squad for the Brew Crew today.

    I heard part of the pregame show, turned it on just as Bell was apparently talking about use of the “opener.” He was saying that instead, he was more interested in building up pitchers to go deeper into games instead of starting with an opener for the first time through the order.

  4. Joey

    I guess the Reds aren’t getting Harper despite their thin, weak group of outfielders. Do I really need to add “lol” at the end of this?

    Wondering if the new pitching coach sees something he can fix

  6. Phil

    Today’s lineup includes Kemp in LF and Winker at DH. I’d assume we’ll see Winker in LF, at least against right-handed starters, and no DH most days.
    I’d have Winker and Votto with their high OBP and relatively less power hitting 1 and 2. I’d then have Puig, Suarez and Scooter 3, 4 and 5 in some order, Schebler/Senzel hitting 6 and Peraza and Barnhart at 7 and 8.

    Was Senzel so bad at shortstop in spring training last year? From what I heard — granted, from the broadcasters, but still — I thought he held his own there. But then he went to the minors and was moved to second base. If Peraza isn’t a stud at short defensively, why is he any advantage over Senzel?

    I can’t help but wonder how much offense this team might put up if Senzel were at short and the outfield was Kemp/Winker on the corners and Puig in center.

  8. Matthew

    I’m noticing a lot of easy outs on first pitch swinging today.

  9. Indy Red Man

    Totally agree on Peralta. He can dial it up to 97 and look outstanding once in a while, but if he was ever going to get it then it would’ve been before now? Finnegan too….91 & wild with a straight as an arrow fastball? No thanks. I’m down on Romano too. Not sure why so many on RLN like him? A career 4.32 milb era doesn’t scream mlb success? I think Sims has better stuff then he does (3.11 at AAA last year)

  10. Reaganspad

    Votto will have more HRs than Gennett this year. Agreed that scooter is leading off for yucks and giggles
