Wandy "Vandy" Peralta took the spot start, though he's typically a reliever, and did a bang up job. Peralta pitched 6 scoreless innings allowing 2 hits, a walk, and striking out 2. The bullpen was not so good. Jermaine "Lee" Curtis was 1 for 3 with 2 runs scored and a solo dinger. Steve "Oh So" Selsky hit a two run ding dong, and Kyle "Wallflower" Waldrop was 2 for 3 with a double.
Jonny Moscot is on the mound at 7:05 PM EST.
Chattanooga has always had a special place in my heart when they were a member of the Reds' organization. Mostly, that is due to me growing up a stone's throw from Chatanooga, Ohio. Tyler "Good Golly Miss" Mahle gives zero shits about special places in my heart or where I'm from. He's just slicin' up eyeballs. Mahle pitched 5 scoreless innings in his second AA start. He allowed 4 hits while walking 2 and striking out 8. Jacob "Record Scratch" Ehret pitched 2 scoreless with a strikeout. Carlos "Not Denver" Gonzalez and Alejandro "Cha-Ching" Chacin both pitched scoreless innings with 2 strikeouts. Joe Hudson was 2 for 3, and Phillip Ervin was 1 for 2 with a double and 2 walks.
Rookie Davis starts tonight at 6:30 PM CT
Tejay "TJ" Antone has had better starts. He gave up 4 earned runs in 5.2 innings. 9 hits were allowed, though he didn't walk a batter and struck out 4. The problem were the 2 homers. Jeremy "Evil" Kivel pitched a scoreless inning. Ty "General" Washington had a kick ass night. He hit double dingers and 3 RBI on a 3 for 5, 3 runs scored, night. Aristides "Horse Hockey" Aquino was 2 for 4.
Mystery Pitcher pitches for both teams tomorrow at 7:05 PM EST.
Hey, they won one. Austin "Big Brother" Orewiler was totes awesome in his 6 innings of shutout baseball. He allowed 3 hits, no walks, and struck out 6. Junior "Not That" Arias pitched a scoreless inning. Kevin "Where'd You Come From?" Franklin was 3 for 4 with a RBI
Jose Lopez will pitch tonight at 7:05 PM EST.
Adrian "Brody" Rodriguez started and did quite well. He went 5.1 innings while giving up only 2 earned runs. He gave up 4 hit, no walks, and struck out 8. Jake "Nick Miller" Johnson (2 IP, 4 K), Ryan "Jimi" Hendrix (1.2 IP, 0 K), Andy "Randy" Cox (1 IP, 0 K), and Lucas "Nasty Nati" Benenati (1 IP, 2 K) were all solid out of the pen. Nick "Senzational" Senzel was 2 for 4 with a RBI, walk, and a run scored. Senzel and Chris Okey were swiftly promoted to Dayton, though they didn't really perform in Billings. However, they're distinguished college hitters, and I doubt the Reds are really that concerned with how they played in Billings.
Moises Nova will be on the mound tonight at 7:05 PM MT.
NIck "MMMbop" Hanson got trounced in his first professional start. He went 2 innings while giving up 5 earned runs on 4 hits 3 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Darren "Shredder" Shred pitched a scoreless 1.2 innings, and so did Connor Bennett who also had 3 strikeouts. Daniel Jimenez was 3 for 5 with a triple and 2 RBI. Morgan "Loafy" Lofstrom hit a solo dinger and walked. Emmanuel Cruz, Michael Beltre, and Derik "Deri-lick My Balls" Capitillo all had multi-hit games. Cruz and Capitillo also walked.
