Sound the alarm! Cody Reed pitched a really good game! Actually, his ERA in AAA has been pretty good but his WHIP (1.47) has been pretty atrocious. Last night, Reed pitched 8 shutout innings while giving up 2 hits, 1 walk, and striking out 6. Certainly, this is something to build on and spring some good vibes. Kevin “Rusty” Shackelford struck out 2 in a scoreless inning to pick up his 9th save of the year. Hernan “The Conqueror” Iribarren was 2 for 5 with a solo dinger and 2 RBI. Brandon “No” Dixon “The Dance Floor” walked thrice (3 times), scored twice, and hit a single, and Zach “J Sounds Like Y” Vincej was 3 for 4.

Luis “The Pitcher” Castillo continues to be pretty cool. He pitched 6 innings of 2-run ball while allowing 5 hits, 2 walks, and striking out 8. Robert “Good” Stock pitched a scoreless inning, so did Ariel “Mermaid” Hernandez, and Jimmy “Orange” Herget picked up his 16th save of the year by pitching a perfect frame with 2 strikeouts. Tyler “Goebbels” Goeddel tripled and walked, and Gabriel “Loose Lips” Guerrero knocked in 2 with a single.

Zack Weiss also pitched and gave up an earned run, but he pitched 2.2 innings and struck out 3. Alfredo “Little Pasta” Rodriguez was 1 for 3 with 2 walks, Daniel “So” Sweet was 2 for 5 with a RBI, walk, and a run scored, Nick “Sexy” Senzel 2 for 5 with a RBI and a walk, and Shane “Forgot He Existed” Mardirosian was 2 for 6.
