Question: What current or former Red does Jay Bruce remind you of the most? He's often compared to Dunn because they're both homegrown outfielders, but he doesn't walk, doesn't hit for quite as much power, is way faster and is a much better contact hitter. Reminds me of a 21-year-old Ken Griffey Jr. with slightly less on-base prowess.
Triple-A: Jay Bruce was 2 for 4 with a triple and 2 RBIs and Adam Rosales had 3 hits as the Bats rolled past the Tides 7-2. Tom Shearn (5-1) struck out 5 in 6 innings, and Danny Herrera threw in 2 more perfect innings. UP NEXT: Game 3 at Norfolk, 7:15 tonight.
Double-A: Ramon Ramirez was hot in Chattanooga's 5-2 win over Tennessee. He struck out 8 and allowed just one hit and 2 runs in 6 innings. Carlos Fisher and Josh Roenicke cleaned up with 6 strikeouts in the final 3 innings, and B.J. Szymanski added his 6th home run. UP NEXT: Game 3 vs. Tennessee, 11:15 today.
High A: Sarasota won 9-2 thanks to a 6-run ninth. Juan Francisco was 2 for 5, Drew Stubbs drew 3 walks and Chris Valaika was 0 for 5 with 3 strikeouts. Yet another perfect inning for Ramon Geronimo. UP NEXT: New series vs. Daytona, 7 tonight.
Low A: Every Dragon had a hit in Dayton's 11-1 rout of Quad Cities. Todd Frazier: 3 for 5. Brandon Waring: 1 for 4. Zach Cozart: 2 for 5 with a double and a homer. Enerio Del Rosario, a 22-year-old from (where else) the Dominican Republic, struck out 6 in 6 innings, allowing 3 hits and a walk. He's allowed 14 hits and 5 walks in 26 innings this season, striking out 20 with a 1.38 ERA. UP NEXT: Game 3 vs. Quad Cities, 7 tonight.
