Final: Rangers 12 – Reds 9
Well, things were strange on Thursday night as the Reds jumped out to a 6-2 lead, and led 9-5 at one point, but the Rangers dropped six runs in the bottom of the 6th and didn’t look back.
The Reds got home runs from Tyler Naquin – who went 2-3 with a walk and a triple to go with his homer – and Jonathan India – who went 2-4. Nick Senzel went 1-3 with a walk and a run scored. Jesse Winker went 1-3 with a triple, walk, run, and he had two runs batted in. Dee Strange-Gordon went 2-4 with a run and an RBI. Kyle Farmer went 1-4 with a run. Tyler Stephenson went 1-3 with a walk and three runs driven in. Nicky Delmonico went 2-3 with a double, walk, and a run scored. Mark Payton took over in center late in the game and went 1-2. Mike Freeman took over at second base late in the game and went 1-1.
Jeff Hoffman was solid until the 5th inning when he was charged with three earned runs, pushing his total on the day to five in 4.1 innings with a walk and four strikeouts. Noé Ramirez didn’t get help from the defense, but he also didn’t help himself as he allowed two hits, three walks, and a home run in an inning of work that saw him charged with an earned run and then five additional unearned runs. Control wasn’t just an issue for Ramirez, as Brandon Finnegan followed with three walks an an unearned run in 0.2 innings. Edgar García pitched a hitless 8th inning with two strikeouts.
