The Final | Dodgers 8 – Reds 1
The Reds were doing well until the 8th inning rolled around. That’s when the Dodgers scored all eight of their runs and put the game out of reach for Cincinnati.
Jose Peraza drove in Yasiel Puig for the only Cincinnati run. Tanner Roark dominated in his start, allowing 1 hit in 5.0 shutout innings with 8 strikeouts. Cody Reed and Ty Boyles both tossed a shutout inning of relief. You can see the entire box score for the game here.
Continually amazed Connor Joe is listed as a catcher when he has not played a big league game there and none this spring even though they said he would play there in early Spring Training.
Just saw the line on Roark. I know it’s a spring training lineup, but 5 innings, 8 K’s and 0 walks is as good as you can ask for.
Have to think Bass is pitching his way on to the roster.
Welp. That was quite the ill-timed comment.
What the heck has happened or is going on with Suarez? He has struck out 3x tonight so far and by my count that’s 15k in 25 ab so far this spring! Extremely higher rate than normal, even comparing to past spring trainings.
It’s called LTCS (Long Term Contract Syndrome)
I hope Finnegan will be sent down in next cut, if he ever had it, he lost it long time ago.
Finnegan is awful in every way. Embodies all the stink of recent seasons. Gone already please.
Hadn’t seen Boyles before…dude likes his cheeseburgers 🙂
Finnegan is done. DFA is in his near future.
The starting pitchers are rounding into form, but I don’t trust this pen at all? Hughes and Hernandez are nearing 34 years old. Hughes had a career high in IP last year with a 1.02 whip and 1.94 era. How likely is he to come close to that? I’m a huge Lorenzen fan, but he’s far from a lock down setup man. They can’t afford Kimbrel, but they need to do something imo? I liked Pressly with the Twins last year (71ip 101ks). He has great stuff, but somehow Houston snapped him up. We have the depth in the minors to get someone like that from a non-contender
I like the look of Roark. He seems like a pitcher who can the Reds into at least the 6th. inning or more of most games that he starts.
