New, 16 comments

There’s also a lot of other good pitching.

Robert Stephenson - 6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 13 K

I don’t know what else Stephenson needs to do at this point. He has no options left after this year and the Reds need to know what they have in Stephenson. He needs to be getting some big league innings sooner rather than later.

This is the big performance that you probably heard about as it was happening, but Robert Stephenson was super good. Stephenson pitched 6 innings of shutout ball. He allowed only one hit and 3 walks. What he did that was super cool was striking out 13 in those 6 innings. Domingo “Ate Your Baby” Tapia struck (2 K), Kyle “Davy” Crockett, and Jimmy “Drink To” Herget (1 K) all pitched scoreless innings. CJ “Elmo” McElroy knocked a solo dinger, and Gabby Guerrero hit a 2-run homer. Blake Trahan, Chadwick “Liar” Trump, and Nick “Bong Rip” Longhi all had 2-hit games.
