Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Weekend
Me - For actually reading the box scores and writing all of this during a 8-4 Reds loss. It was not particularly fun.
Rob “Poopin” Wooten gave up seven earned runs while only getting one out so this was bad from the beginning. Cody Reed, Jimmy “Eat World” Herget, and Jesus Reyes all pitched a scoreless inning of relief near the end but it didn’t matter. Herget struck out two and Reyes one. Nick “Bong Rip” Longhi hit his 7th dinger of the year with 4 total RBI on a 2 for 2 with two walks night. Rob “Umpsnyder” Refsnyder went 2 for 3 with two walks and two runs scored.
Jordan “Brat” Johnson gave up 5 earned (8 total) in 4.1 innings. Bad. Ty “Lancing” Boyles struck out three over 1.1 innings. Jesse “Bathroom” Stallings pitched a scoreless inning. Ibandel “Princess” Isabel knocked in two with his 12th dinger of the year and walked. Tyler Stephenson hit a double and went 3 for 5, Jose Siri doubled and walked, and Taylor Trammell singled and walked.
Ryan Lillie pitched five shutout innings on four hits, three walks, while striking out five. Julio Pinto struck out two in two scoreless, and Ryan “Busta” Nutof struck out three in three innings of relief (in extras) to nab the save. Jose “Cherry” Garcia went 2 for 5 with a RBI and a run scored, and Bruce Yari hit a solo tater.
Andy Salinas gave up six earned (eight total) over 4 innings. Jerry D’Andrea struck out one in a scoreless inning, and Moises Nova did the same but it was over three innings. Mike Siani went 3 for 4 with a RBI and a solo dinger, and Brian Rey homered as well.
Oh hell no. Only the positives. Jesus Reyes struck out two over 1.1 innings. Alex “Light Tower” Powers struck out two in a scoreless inning. Refsnyder went 3 for 5.
“Wacky” Packy Naughton got his AA debut and picked up the win. He allowed three runs (two earned) over 5 innings on six hits, two walks, while striking out four. Slyde “Sofa King” Kuhnel K’d one over 1.1 clean innings to pick up his 6th save. Isabel went 2 for 4 with another 2-run dinger, his 13th of the year. If you remember, he really heated up this time of year last year. Chris “Annie Are You” Okey went 1 for 4 with a 3-run dong blast and 4 RBI total. Alfredo Rodriguez went 3 for 5, and Brantley Bell went 2 for 4 with two runs scored.
Jared “Temple Of” Solomon gave up one run (none earned) over six innings on three hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts. John Ghyzel struck out one in a scoreless inning. Alejo Lopez doubled.
Jhon De Jesus gave up seven earned runs over four innings. The bullpen was bad. Mike Siani tripled and went 2 for 5 with two runs scored, and Pabel “Pepper” Manzanero went 3 for 4 with a RBI.
Keury Mella gave up five runs (four earned) over 5.1 innings on seven hits, one walk, and three strikeouts. Romano (1 K), Krol (2 K), Herget (2 K), and Powers (1 K) all combined to finish the final 4.2 innings, keeping the score where it was, to bang this game home. Christian Colon went 5 for 5 with a dinger, double, and three RBI. Nick Longhi went 3 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI.
Tony Santillan was stable. Tony Santillan was good. Santillan gave up three runs (two earned) over six innings on eight hits, one walk, and six strikeouts. Two of those runs did score on solo dingers but that’s life. Ty “Poppin” Boyles struck out two in an inning. Taylor Trammell went 2 for 5 with a solo homer and two runs scored, and Mitch “Say Hay” Nay went 3 for 4 with a solo homer as well, a triple, and two runs scored. Alfredo Rodriguez is doing 2019 Alfredo Rodrguez things. He went 4 for 4 with a double, walk, and a RBI.
Austin “Animal Farm” Orewiler gave up three earned runs over six innings on six hits, no walks, while striking out seven. Anerys Zabala pitched a clean inning and Andy Cox picked up his fifth save while striking out five over two innings. Drew “Wall” Mount went 2 for 4 with a RBI and a run scored. Stuart Fairchild tripled in a run.
James “Sauce” Marinan was meh. He allowed two earned runs over four innings on six hits, two walks, while striking out one. Carlos Machorro struck out two in 1.1 scoreless. Brian Rey dingered and Morgan “Wonder Bread” Lofstrom went 2 for 3.
Vlad “Goots” Gutierrez was bad which is nothing new. He gave up five earned runs over six innings on ten hits, one walk, while striking out six. Brian “Beef” O’Grady went 3 for 5 with his 13th and 14th dingers of the year and 5 RBI total. Refsnyder doubled while going 2 for 5 with a RBI, and Sherman Johnson went 2 for 4 with a triple, RBI, and a run scored.

Daytona also had Monday off. They play tonight at 6:30 PM ET.
Lyon Richardson gave up five earned over four innings. Moises Nova struck out two in the only actual good inning of pitching. Mike Siani doubled and scored two runs. Rey knocked in two, and Martinez tripled in two runs. This is all real gag worthy.
