Tejay Antone to throw off the mound tomorrow
According to the Cincinnati Reds Game Notes today, Tejay Antone is scheduled to pitch off of the mound tomorrow. It doesn’t specify a game, so it may be just a bullpen session. Antone left his start on Sunday with a groin strain between the 3rd and 4th innings.
Amir Garrett pitching in Saturday’s game
Thursday in his press conference with the media, Amir Garrett said he would pitch in a “B” game on Saturday. But in the game notes on Friday the lefty reliever was listed as scheduled to pitch in the game against the Brewers on Saturday night.
Luis Castillo named Opening Day Starter
In a shock to absolutely no one now that we know Sonny Gray is going to miss the first week of the season, the Cincinnati Reds named Luis Castillo as the Opening Day starter.
Final: Reds 6 – Giants 2
Cincinnati picked up win number six on the spring by scoring six runs against the Giants and getting a strong effort from most of the pitchers
Nick Lodolo got the start and allowed a run on two hits in an inning of work with a strikeout. Sean Doolittle followed him on the night and had the kind of outing he needed, throwing just five pitches in a perfect inning of work. Jesse Biddle came out for the third inning and needed a few more pitches as he struck out the side in a shutout inning of work. Up next it was Cam Bedrosian and he tossed a hitless inning with a walk and two strikeouts. Braden Shipley took over for the 5th and he tossed a perfect frame with two strikeouts. Sal Romano struck out the side while working around a single in the 6th. Josh Osich tossed a perfect 7th inning with a strikeout. In the 8th inning we saw Tony Santillan walk two and strike out two in a hitless inning. Shane Carle ran into some trouble in the final inning, but allowed just one run on three hits while picking up a strikeout.
The starters hit well on the night. Nick Senzel went 2-3 with a walk, double, RBI, a steal, and he scored two runs. Jesse Winker went 2-3 with a walk, run, and an RBI. Nick Castellanos went 1-3 with an RBI. Eugenio Suárez went 1-3 with a double, was hit by a pitch, and had an RBI. Mike Moustakas went 1-3 with a walk and an RBI. Max Schrock returned to the lineup and picked up where he left off, going 1-1 with a walk, was hit by a pitch, stole home and scored two runs. Among the replacement players, only Mike Freeman reached base – he was hit by a pitch.
