The Final | Reds 11- Brewers 5
The Cincinnati Reds got back to their winning ways in spring training, beating up on the Brewers 11-5 on Sunday afternoon. The Reds dropped a 6-spot in the top of the 1st inning as the ball was flying, and being crushed. Jesse Winker (2-3) and Nick Senzel (2-3 2 doubles) both doubled and both scored on a Derek Dietrich homer. Phillip Ervin and Kyle Farmer would add home runs in the game, too. TJ Friedl came in for Senzel and racked up two hits.
The Brewers got to the Reds pitching early. They scored three runs on Lucas Sims in the first, and two more on Sal Romano over the next two innings. The bullpen shut them down to follow. Vladimir Gutierrez threw two perfect innings with 2 strikeouts. Wandy Peralta, Ian Krol, Brandon Finnegan, and Juan Martinez all tossed a shutout inning of relief. You can see the entire box score for the game right here.
Has stephenson pitched yet?
No. He’s getting closer to pitching, but has been dealing with a slight shoulder issue.
Think they built it for Sims
Winker just has solid AB’s
Looking forward to watching him play everyday this year
Bomb by Ervin
Going to be an interesting decision in regards to the OF
Reds should be looking to unload Kemp
Maybe Schebler does not have a spot.
I agree with you on Kemp. He’d be a good DH for someone and the Reds always need a good arm somewhere. I’m not exactly confident with Hughes, Hernandez, and Duke. They’re old-timers. Ervin is pretty good vs lefties and could spot our lefty hitting OFs
Joey Votto needs a platoon?
Marty giving the PA announcer the devil for mispronouncing Trahan. Told the guy there was no excuse for messing up a name. Reds next batter was Christian Colon and Marty called him Christofer Colon. Oops.
Apparently, no Excuse for mispronouncing Blake Trahan. But Christian Colon.
I mean come on. Whose ever heard of a “Christian” ? It’s just not a word you come across all the time. 🙂 🙂
Gotta side with Marty on this one (at least his thoughts). I was irritated at one of the Angels tv guy’s earlier pronunciation of “TRUE-han”.
I noticed that too. I’ve been a huge Marty fan since childhood, but it was incredibly irritating to listen to him yesterday. I cringed when he told the story of shaming the P.A. announcer. I was hoping Marty would lighten up a bit during his final season and be more positive, but not so far. His negativity for players and the game itself seems to outweigh any compliments and praise he gives.
Still no Iglesias either. Or Hernandez. Anybody know the skinny?
Are there any roster moves yet? Some position players have no business in camp, like C. Joe, J. Patterson and M. Williams.
