All three Reds minor league teams playing Thursday night lost, and no home runs were hit. Not very exciting for a Reds off day, if you ask me.
- Louisville was rained out. Matt Maloney and Sam LeCure will take Buffalo on in a doubleheader, with Game 1 starting at 5:30.
- Carolina lost 3-1 to the former Reds affiliate. Dallas Buck pitched three innings for the Mudcats before leaving in the 4th with an injury, according to the Mudcats broadcast. No word yet as to how bad the injury is. Ruben Medina and Alexander Smit pitched two innings of scoreless ball each before Derrik Lutz blew the lead in the 8th to lose the game for the Mudcats. Michael Griffin and Eric Eymann had two hits each for the Mudcats. Up next: Travis Wood takes on those traitorous Lookouts, 7:15 ET.
- Sarasota came back from being down 5-2, but lost 7-5 in 10 innings. Matt Klinker allowed 5 runs in his 6 innings of work, and former catcher Ben Davis gave up the walk off home run in the 10th. Kevyn Feiner led the S-Reds with two hits, and Justin Reed was 1-for-5 with 2 RBI. Up next: Travis Webb takes on St. Lucie, starting at 7:00.
- Dayton lost to the Beloit Snappers, 6-4. Lance Janke picked up 2 2/3 more scoreless innings in long relief, lowering his ERA to 1.62. Carlos Mendez, Kevin Coddington, and Frank Pfister had two hits each for the Dragons. Up next: Matt Fairel is the scheduled starter against Beloit, first pitch at 7:30.
