Stuart Fairchild - 2 for 4, HR, 2 RBI, BB, 2 R
Jesus “Lives” Reyes just got by by the skin of his teeth. Reyes did not give up an earned run over six innings but allowed four hits, walked five, while striking out five. Jimmy “Drink To” Herget struck out two in two scoreless. Not only did Reyes somehow survive this game without giving up a run, he also hit a solo dinger. Christian “Swollen” Colon went 2 for 4, and Rob “Riggle” Refsnyder went 3 for 3 with a RBI.
Packy “Sacky” Naughton didn’t have his best stuff but did some nice things. Naughton allowed three earned runs (four total) over 5 innings on nine hits, one walk, while striking out eight. Obviously, a WHIP of 2.0 is bad, but we’ll take those strikeouts. Jesse “James” Stallings struck out two in two scoreless innings of relief. Stu “Balls” Fairchild went 2 for 4 with a solo homer, two RBI, a walk, and two runs scored. Samir Duenez “The Bathtub, I’m Dueowning” was recent just signed by the Reds after being released by the Royals. He’s had a horrible 2019 season but just as recently as the 2017-2018 season he ranked as the Royals #13 prospect. He’s also only 23 years old. But, the reason I’m really talking about him is because he went 3 for 5 with a double, two RBI, and a run scored. Gavin LaValley, doubled, went 2 for 4, and knocked in a run. Chris “Annie R U” Okey went 1 for 2 with a RBI, two walks, and a run scored. Jonathan India walked twice to keep his AA walk rate super high.
Jared “Wise” Solomon pitched six shutout innings on five hits, no walks, while striking out four. Michael Byrne struck out one in a scoreless inning. Alejo “Hello” Lopez went 3 for 4 with a triple and a RBI. Jose “Cherry” Garcia went 2 for 4 with a double.
This thing was a real snoozer right up until the point when the Dayton wrestled control of the game in the top of the 12th. Actually, not a run was scored in this one until the 11th. I actually was about to go to bed and then i saw this game thankfully ended. The pitching was all really good, but the two that stood out the most were Jerry D’Andrea who struck out out four in 1.2 perfect innings, and Matt Pidich who did give up an unearned run but struck out three in two innings. Mariel Bautista went 2 for 5, and Matt Lloyd went 2 for 4 with a walk and a run scored.
Carlos “Camaro” Carreno gave up an earned run over five innings. He allowed four hits, two walks, while striking out five. Alec “Big” Byrd struck out three in two innings. Eric “Wang” Yang went 2 for 4 with 2 RBI. Quin “Killed Fiddy Men” Cotton went 1 for 2 with two walks and two runs scored. Overall, it was quite the team affair for the Mustangs. They had nine hits and walked six times and all of it was pretty evenly spread out.
Greeneville had the night off.
