Game Recap: Reds 2 – Giants 1
A low scoring affair saw the Giants strand the tying run in the bottom of the 9th at second base as the Reds held on for the victory.
The pitching was strong from top to bottom for the Reds…. almost. Hunter Greene pounded the strikezone in 2.0 shutout innings to start the game, reaching 102 MPH several times with his fastball and throwing his slider and change up for strikes. Vladimir Gutierrez followed him with two more shutout innings that included three strikeouts. Trevor Hoffman and Buck Farmer each tossed a perfect inning with two strikeouts before Kyle Dowdy kept the Giants offense off the board in both the 7th and 8th innings. Riley O’Brien took over in the 9th inning and allowed a run, but held the lead to pick up the save.
Kyle Farmer picked up two hits in three at-bats and drove in a run. Tyler Stephenson walked and singled. Jake Fraley and Shogo Akiyama both went 1-3, with Fraley adding a stolen base.. Brandon Drury doubled in his lone plate appearance on the evening.
James Marinan is set to start against the Colorado Rockies at 4:05pm ET. Game will be on 700 WLW and Bally Sports Ohio.
