Game Recap: Athletics 5 – Reds 4
Tough day for Vladimir Gutierrez as the Reds comeback fell just short.
It was a tough first inning for Vladimir Gutierrez who didn’t complete the inning, but returned later for the second and part of the third because it’s spring training and rules don’t count. He allowed four runs in 2.1 innings on six hits and he had one strikeout.
The bullpen was strong after Gutierrez was finished. Justin Wilson, Luis Cessa, Dauri Moreta, and Daniel Duarte all threw a shutout inning each – with Moreta picking up three strikeouts in his inning of work.
Joey Votto, known for his speed, went 1-4 with a triple and 2 RBI. Max Schock went 2-4 with an RBI and watched his batting average drop on the spring to .588. Kyle Farmer went 1-3 with a run and an RBI. Jonathan India went 1-4 with a run scored. Tyler Naquin went 1-4 with a double. Nick Senzel went 1-3 with a walk.
