Final: Reds 6 – Rockies 4

The Cincinnati Reds picked up their second win of the spring on Monday afternoon.

The Highlights

Tejay Antone got the start and tossed 3.0 shutout innings without a walk and he picked up three strikeouts along the way. Jeff Hoffman followed him and tossed 3.0 shutout innings of his own without a walk and he added four more strikeouts to the Cincinnati Reds total. Cam Bedrosian took over in the 7th inning, holding a 6-4 lead, and he struck out three batters while walking one in his inning of work. Bedrosian has struck out six of the seven hitters he’s faced this spring. Jesse Biddle came out for the 9th and picked up the save with the only base runner coming on a catchers interference call.

Jesse Winker went 1-1 with two walks and a run scored while getting the start in left field. Nick Senzel went 1-2 with a walk and a run scored. Jonathan India went 1-1 with two walks and a steal of home on a double-steal that was executed along with Max Schrock. For his part at the plate, Schrock went 2-3 with an RBI. Kyle Holder took over for Kyle Farmer at shortstop and went 1-2 with a double. Alfredo Rodriguez went 1-1 with an RBI after taking over at second base.

    That Joey Votto podcast is awesome. I could listen to him all day. His Junior story was really funny

  2. Old Big Ed

    Max Schrock is the new Rogers Hornsby. Moustakas is Wally Pipp.

  3. Doc

    I know Lou Gehrig filled in for Wally Pipp for the next 2,100+ games, but from whom did Rogers Hornsby take over?

    • Old Big Ed

      Best left-handed second baseman of all time (non-Red, anyway).

    Hoffman and Antone both looked good today! We are going to need a lot of guys who can give 3+ innings out of the pen. Even Castillo and Gray will probably only go 5 innings in most games this year. If not you’ll burn out these arms before the post season arrives.

    • Jack

      I sure hope Antone isn’t coming out of the pen. Nasty stuff, get the most innings out of him.

      • MBS

        I don’t really think it matters who is the “starter” or “long man” this season. Mahle, Miley, Lorenzen, Antone, Hoffman, and De Leon, will not be throwing 6 or 7 innings. I’d venture to guess right now, the guys coming in relief will have a better shot at getting W’s. I doubt any of these pitchers will get 5 innings regularly. I could be completely off, but if we treat the starters like normal, we will have a rotation of burnt out arms before the post season begins.

    BTW I now live in Miami, and I can listen to the Reds on the iHeart Radio app. I don’t know if it will remain like that in the regular season or not.

    • Matt O'Neal

      Not as far as Miami, but I can get it in West Virginia, too. I had to go to Fox Sports 1360 though. 700 WLW was some talk show.

      All regular season games on internet for out of towners will be blocked. But if you get a VPN and set it to a local area the internet thinks you are in that area. I do not know if a VPN selection for the Cincy area exist, Buy the MLB internet package and watch most games and listen to all games.

      • MBS

        I already have a MLB subscription for TV and Audio, but I thought I’d try to see if the iHeart radio would work here. I just remembered Doug saying they were offering their games to the local market.

    I’m excited about the Schrock-India double steal. When I started following baseball back in the 1950s, the double steal was a common play. Today it seems almost as forgotten as the left handed screwball.

    • RedsMonk65

      India is looking VERY good so far this spring. Good plate discipline, and he is hitting the ball. At this rate, it will be tough not to have him on the team when camp breaks for Cincinnati … Good problem to have.

    As was wondering until I looked at the box score, when you wrote Antone and Hoffman both pitched 3 shutout innings and Bedrosian took over in the 7th with a 6 to 4 lead.
