Final: Reds 7 – Angels 3
Cincinnati picked up their 4th win of the spring behind good pitching and timely hitting on Monday afternoon.
On the mound we saw Michael Lorenzen make another start, this time giving up two solo home runs in 3.2 innings while walking one and striking out three batters. Bo Takahashi recorded the final out of the 4th inning, facing just one batter on the day. Noé Ramirez threw a perfect 5th inning with two strikeouts. Cionel Pérez threw a perfect inning when he took over in the 6th. Art Warren made one mistake and Jo Adell hit it to the moon for a solo homer, but Warren struck out two batters in the inning with only that ball to the moon going against him. Josh Osich struck out two batters in a perfect 8th inning. Shane Carle came out for the 9th inning and got a 1-2-3 inning with a strikeout to seal the Reds victory.
The Reds offense got things going this afternoon. Jesse Winker went 1-3 with a walk, double, run scored, and 2 RBI. Tucker Barnhart went 1-3 with a walk, run, and an RBI. Jonathan India drove in the first run of the day for Cincinnati with a bloop single, going 1-3 on the day. Mark Payton got the start in center and took advantage of it, going 2-3 with a double, 2 runs, and he had 2 RBI. Both Kyle Holder and Kyle Farmer went 1-3 with a single.
