Reinekes gunna Reineke

  • Louisville lost a pitcher's duel to Gwinnett, 1-0. Chad Reineke tossed a gem–7 shutout innings–allowing just 6 baserunners. If Chad Reineke were a prospect, we'd all be starting to get super worked up by his start to the season, during which he's given up 1 run in 21.2 innings with a 3:1 K/BB ratio. Too bad Chad Reineke is in his 8th MiLB season, and is as old as my parents' marriage. A cautionary tale in early season noise, kids. Nobody should be giving up on anyone just yet, not Billy Hamilton (0-3, BB, SB, thrown out at home), not Daniel Corcino, not Henry Rodriguez. It's still early. Up next: Armando Galarraga (1-1, 1.88) on the bump for the last game of the series at 6:35.
  • Pensacola got hooked for the loss in another low-scoring tussle, falling 2-1 to the Tennessee Smokies. Ryan Dennick gave up 2 runs in his 6 innings, and "Tone" Loek Van Mil followed with 2 scoreless of his own, but the offense couldn't muster much mustard, so the Wahoos lost. Donald Lutz was 1-4 with a double. Lutz is a guy whose seemingly "slow" start to the year is deceiving. He's slugging .529, but hitting just .206, and getting on base at a .296 clip. The rub? His .209 BABIP. The power is there, the luck is not, and the Knockwurst is just fine. Ryan LaMarre was the only fish with more than 1 hit, going 2-4 with a double and a steal. Oh, and not to scratch at old scabs, but Ronald Torreyes was a homer short of the cycle for the Smokies. Up next: Daniel Renken (1-1, 3.57) looks to even the series at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield lost to High Desert, 9-3. Wangers were honked by Kyle Waldrop and Marquez "100 Years of Solitude" Smith, Juan Silverio was 2-4, Chris Berset went 2-3 with an RBI double, and that was about it for the offense. The pitching was shoddy, as Tanner Robles and Pat Doyle were very hittable, and Kyle McMyne somehow tossed 2 scoreless innings despite a WHIP of 3 over that time. Up next: Carlos "Mary, Mary, Quite" Contreras (1-1, 2.18) takes the bump at 10:15.
  • Dayton's bats finally woke up, beating Peoria 11-5. Beau "Jangles" Amaral went 3-5 with a jangdoodle from atop the order (as the DH! LOL Low A), Junior Arias was 2-4 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored, and every Dragon had at least one hit. Sal "Low APR Financing" Romano gave up a run in 5 innings, walking a pair and striking out 3. Joel Bender had his shiny, metal ass handed to him in 3 innings of relief (4 runs), but fortunately, the offense. Up next: Robert Stephenson (0-2, 6.23) looks to right the Jolly Roger against Peoria at 7.
