The Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night
We’re always up in here giving these awards to the Next Big Thing or our favorite Reds prospect but I’m gonna give you this: Hendrik Clementina. Give me your best guess where Hendrik came from? Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
The Tony Cingrani trade.
He slugged a dinger tonight, scored 2 runs, hit again, and walked as well. That’s pretty cool from a catcher that’s also hitting .359 on the season, I think.
Justin Nicolino was actually pretty fine in this one, going 6 IP with 4 H and only 1 ER, 1 BB, and 3 K. Instead it was Tanner “Are You the Reason for the” Rainey that coughed it up, allowing 2 ER on 3 BB and a hit in only 1.1 IP. Yuck. Kevin “Quock” Quakenbush finished it, allowing a hit and a strikeout.
Steve “I’m Really Still Here” Selsky homered for the only Bats run of the night. Brandon Dixon walked and hit on the night. Yawwwwnnn from the Bats tonight.
Up Next: Brandon Finnegan takes the mound to get right in Durham. Scheduled for 7:05 PM EDT.
Vladimir Gutierrez wasn’t so much the Impaler tonight, giving up 6 H and 4 ER in 4.1 IP, though he did strikeout 8 and only walk 1, which is still pretty neat. “The Daytime Television Show” Jose Rafael de Paula pitched 2, striking out 2 while allowing 2 hits and an earned run. Carlos “Is A” Navas attempted to allow some damage, allow 3 hits and 3 R (2 ER) in 2 IP, but the ‘Hoos managed to stay in it.
Because Pensacola got hits on hits on hits. The best of which was Aristides “Rich Boob Joke” Aquino honking two wangers as a part of a 2 H, 3 RBI night. Shed Long hit thrice with 2 RBI and 3 runs scored. Chris “Annie are you” Okey hit twice and scored a run from the catcher position.
Up Next: Wyatt Strahan will go for Pensacola against Biloxi early on Wednesday morning, first pitch scheduled for 11:35 AM EDT.
Ty “Poppin” Boyles went 5.1 IP strong, allowing 7 H with only 3 ER and 1 BB and 5 K. Aaron “Mu” Fossas held with 0.2 and a strikeout, while Joel “Sofa King” Kuhnel walked one and struck out one in an inning of work.
On the offensive side, Jose “Apple of my iPhone” Siri and Tyler “TySteve” Stephenson smashed taters, both knocking in 2 and combining for 4 hits. Taylor Trammell also hit twice and scored a run.
Up Next: Tony Santillian will try (will, he will) to continue to mow his A+ brethren down at 10:30 AM EDT (He’ll be followed by Scott Moss in Game 2, which is a makeup game).
Adrian “Rocky Voice” Rodriguez made us scream the name, allowing 7 H, 6 ER, and 1 BB in only 1.2 IP. Adrian Chacon made up for his name buddy, going 2.2 with only 1 H, 1 ER, and 3 K. Sarkis “Buckeye” Ohanian struckout 3 but walked 3 also, allowing 3 H and 2 ER. Cory Thompson filled in 2 IP, allowing only 2 hits, while Ryan “Get Your” Nutof (hasn’t been totally hearing that shit since he was old enough to swing a bat) pitched 1.2, striking out 3 while allowing 2 H and 2 BB and an unearned run.
Miles “Davis” Gordon had 3 hits (a 2B and a 3B, if you wanna be cool), with 2 RBi and a run scored. Hendrik “Oh My Darling” Clementina smacked a dinger on a 2 hit night, also walking once, scoring twice, and batting 2 in. Stuart Fairchild hit twice with a RBI and run scored, while Jeter “Derek’s are the Worst” Downs knocked a double and an RBI.
Up Next: Packy Naughton will go against Lansing at 7:05 PM EDT.
