Farmers Only Weekend Harvest: Jose Siri goes streaking


The Dragons’ right fielder tripled twice on Sunday to extend his hitting streak to 29 games. Friday, July 21 Louisville Bats 2, Buffalo Bison 13 Hoo Boy. Amir Garrett did not have a good outing. He gave up 7 runs on 7 hits while walking 1 and striking out 0 in only an inning of work. He has put up a 9.82 ERA in the month of July which is, as some might say, bad. Austin Brice “Waterhouse Cooper” and Lisalverto Bonilla each threw 2 shutout innings of relief, which was good. At the plate, Zach “Soft J” Vincej was 2 for 4 and scored a run, Uncle Jesse Winker was 1 for 2 with a double, a walk, and a run scored, and Alex “MCM” Blandino was 1 for 4 with a RBI double. Pensacola Blue Wahoos 3, Montgomery Biscuits 14 Deck “Yella Wood” McGuire got the start and was wild, giving up only 2 runs on 4 hits, but walking 5 while striking out 7. The damage came when he was relieved by Alex “Danger” Powers, who gave up 7 runs and only recorded 1 out. Blake Trahan was 2 for 5 with a double and scored twice, Gavin “As I walk through” LaValley was 2 for 4 with a double, and Josh “Metric System” VanMeter was 2 for 3 with a double, a walk, and 1 RBI. Shed Long also hit a solo dinger, which is a good thing. Daytona Tortugas 0, Jupiter Hammerheads 6 Wendolyn “Wendy Bats” Bautista gave up 4 runs on 5 hits with 4 walks and 3 strikeouts over 4.2 innings. Not that it really mattered, because the offense only collected 3 hits, 1 each by Luis Gonzalez, James “No Nickname” Vazquez, and Chris “Annie are you” Okey. Dayton Dragons 1, Peoria Chiefs 8 Alex Webb started and gave up 3 runs in 3 innings on 5 hits with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts. Then Aaron “A-A-Ron” Quillen blew everything up and gave up 5 runs in 4 innings of work. Jose “Ask” Siri was 1 for 4 with a double and scored a run and Hector Vargas was 2 for 3 on the night. Billings got rained out on Friday. Saturday, July 22 Louisville Bats 0, Buffalo Bison 8 Rookie “of the year” Davis: Also not great. He was bit by the long ball in this one, as 3 of 6 hits that he gave up left the yard. He allowed 5 earned runs over 4.2 innings while walking none and striking out 3. Kevin “Love” Shackelford struck out 4 in 1.2 innings of work. Alex Blandino and Eric “Deuce Bigelow Male” Jagielo were each 1 for 4 with a double. That’s pretty much all there is to write about offensively. Pensacola Blue Wahoos 7, Montgomery Biscuits 4 The Blue Wahoos scored 3 in the top of the 9th to win 7-4 on Saturday. Jose Lopez was solid, going 6 innings and giving up 2 runs on 4 hits with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. Nick “Rocky Top” Senzel mashed, going 3 for 5 with 2 doubles. Gavin LaValley was 2 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI, Shed Long was also 2 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI, and Gabriel “Young Vlad” Guerrero was 2 for 5 and scored twice. Zach Weiss struck out 2 in 2 scoreless innings. Daytona Tortugas 4, Jupiter Hammerheads 3 Daytona scored 2 in the 9th to walk it off against Jupiter on Saturday. Jonathon “:(“ Crawford started and gave up 3 runs on 3 hits over 3 innings with 6 walks and 2 strikeouts. Austin “1984” Orewiler came on in relief and was solid, throwing 4 shutout innings while walking none and striking out 5. Luis Gonzalez was 2 for 3 with 2 RBI, Brantley “Ring My” Bell was 1 for 4 with a 2-run dinger, and Alfredo “Pasta-Rod” Rodriguez was 1 for 4 with a double and scored a run. Dayton Dragons 2, Peoria Chiefs 8 Wennington “More like givesupabunchofrunsington” Romero started and was pretty bad. He gave up 8 earned runs on 10 hits over 6.2 innings, walking none and striking out 4. The offense only scattered 5 hits and none went for extra bases. Bruce Yari was 1 for 4 with 1 RBI, so that was good, I guess. Billings Mustangs 1, Grand Junction Rockies 5 Mac Sceroler started and didn’t give up a run over 3 innings, but then Tyler Buffett happened and he gave up 5 runs over 2 innings. Stuart “Life’s Not” Fairchild was 2 for 2 with a solo dinger and Alejo Lopez and Leandro Santana were each 1 for 3. Billings Mustan[...]

Sal Romano excellent, Reds beat Marlins 6-3


The rookie held Miami in check. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Sal Romano’s second start of the second half of the season went infinitely better than his first outing, to say the least. On Sunday against the Miami Marlins, the Cincinnati Reds got 6 strong innings from the latest rookie to toe the rubber, with just 3 hits and a lone earned run allowed from Sal. Romano allowed a lone walk, fanned 7, and breezed through the heart of Miami’s lineup in order in his final inning of the day, wrapping a 98 pitch outing that was ripe with promise. The guy’s electric fastball can routinely hit 98 mph, and if he can find a way to improve his change-up to pair with an already decent slider, there just might be enough in his repertoire to stick as a starter after all. Honorable Mentions are due to: Billy Hamilton, who had a 3-hit day, stole bags 42 and 43, and scored a run; Eugenio Suarez, Tucker Barnhart, and Scooter Gennett, each of whom socked solo dingers (with Gennett adding an RBI single, too); Raisel Iglesias, who threw rocks for another 2-inning save; and Zack Cozart, who singled, scored, and walked twice in what might well be his final home game in GABP. Key Plays The Reds got on the board first in this one, getting a run off Marlins starter Tom Koehler in the Bottom of the 2nd. Scott Schebler was hit by a breaking ball with 1-out, and he moved over to 2B on Tucker Barnhart’s walk. A sac-bunt from Romano moved the batters over a bag, and Schebler then scored on Hamilton’s RBI single into RF. Barnhart was thrown out at the plate by Giancarlo Stanton, but the Reds led, 1-0. It’s not officially a Reds game unless the other team socks a dinger. Well, AJ Ellis took care of that when he took Romano deep for a solo shot in the Top of the 4th, tying the game 1-1. Scooter got that run back for the Reds in the Bottom of the 4th, however, by sneaking a solo wall-scraper over Stanton’s head and barely into the LF seats. Reds led, 2-1. Cincinnati added another pair of runs off Koehler in the Bottom of the 5th, with Koehler himself helping them out. After Hamilton poked a 1-out single into RF, he stole 2B and then 3B on the ball-four pitch to Cozart. That left runners at the corners for Joey Votto, whose grounder up the middle was fielded by Koehler. Koehler, however, tried to nail Cozart at 2B to start a double play, but threw the ball into CF to allow Billy to score and keep all runners safe. After Duvall popped out, Scooter then singled into shallow RF to score Cozy, though Votto was nailed trying to take 3B. Reds led, 4-1. Suarez played add-on in the Bottom of the 6th with a moonball solo homer into the first row of the LF seats, one that took about a half-hour to finally land. Two batters later, Barnhart did, too, this time with a smash into the seats in left-center. Reds led, 6-1. With Romano out, Michael Lorenzen took over for the Top of the 7th, and things did not go so well. Ellis doubled and scored on a later single by Miguel Rojas, and Rojas later scored after moving to 2B on a productive grounder when Marcell Ozuna singled up the middle to score him. Reds led, 6-3. After that, Iglesias took over, and when Iglesias takes over, the other team goes poof. Such was the case Sunday, and the Reds held on to win, 6-3. Tony Graphanino src="" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" height="450" width="450" style="border:1px solid black;">Source: FanGraphs Other Notes Today marked the final home game for the Reds prior to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. It also marked one of the few times in recent memory where Zack Cozart got a start in a day game after playing the night before. I have a hard time imagining that’s merely a coincidence. Joey Votto has clearly been slumping since the second half of the season began. He did, however, pick up his 69th RBI of the season today. With this particular 10 game [...]

Reds vs. Marlins, Game 3: Previews and Predictions



Reds vs. Marlins

1:10 pm EDT

Sal Romano vs. Tom Koehler

Sal Romano takes the hill today as the Reds try to avoid getting swept. This homestand has been a complete catastrophe, and they could really use a getaway day win as they head to Cleveland tomorrow.

They’ll face Tom Koehler for Miami, who I know absolutely nothing about.

Go Reds!

Robert Stephenson bit by homers, Reds lost to Marlins 5-4


A decent, yet ultimately rough outing for the returned rookie. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Zack Cozart. Who else? The Cincinnati Reds shortstop keeps right on raking, on Saturday bonking a triple into the RF corner, walking thrice, and scoring a run against the Miami Marlins. At this point in the season, I think it’s still fair to suggest that what we’ve seen from him so far in 2017 will likely be a career-best outlier, but it might just be that we might make it all the way to 2018 before we get any chance to look back on it as such. Considering Zack’s about to be a free agent, that’s fantastic news for him, whether he ends up somehow sticking with the Reds or simply cashing in big time from someone else this offseason. Honorable Mentions are due to: Billy Hamilton, who had 2 hits and swiped his 41th bag of the season; Patrick Kivlehan, who homered; Asher Wojciechowski, who fired a pair of scoreless innings of relief; and Eugenio Suarez, who had 2 hits and another pair of excellent defensive plays at 3B. Key Plays Dee Gordon singled and stole both 2B and 3B to open the Top of the 1st, and he then scored on a productive grounder by Giancarlo Stanton. Reds trailed early, 1-0. Chris O’Grady struggled mightily at the start, though the Reds couldn’t fully capitalize on his wildness. Three walks helped force in a run in the Bottom of the 1st, but while a Suarez GIDP plated another run, it effectively ended the bases loaded rally. Reds led, though, 2-1. JT Realmuto seized that lead back for Miami a half-inning later, however, clubbing the first of his two 2-run jacks on the night off Robert Stephenson. Reds trailed, 3-2. Kivlehan leveled the score in the Bottom of the 5th, however, sending an O’Grady meatball into the 2nd deck in LF to make things 3-3. Realmuto happened again, however. He turned around a Bob Steve meatball for a 2-run jack into left-center, scoring Justin Bour and putting the Marlins on top 5-3. A mini-rally resulting in an RBI single by Scooter Gennett that scored Adam Duvall got some hopes up in the Bottom of the 9th, but that was it for the Cincinnati scoring on the day. Reds lost, 5-4. Tony Graphanino src="" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" height="450" width="450" style="border:1px solid black;">Source: FanGraphs Other Notes According to C. Trent Rosecrans, Louisville infielder Dilson Herrera is likely done for the season thanks to the shoulder injury that has flared up again. On the negative side, it’s yet another setback for the once prized prospect who was the primary return in the Jay Bruce trade to the New York Mets last year. On the plus side, however, at least it’s pretty obvious that the shoulder was what was sinking his numbers this year, and at least that might be fixable - in theory. This 10 game homestand has not gone well. Stephenson’s final line wasn’t quite as bad as it looks, really. He got tagged for big homers, but actually hit the strike zone rather well and had his off-speed pitches working very will. Line: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 5 K on 100 pitches. Sal Romano will get Sunday’s start in hopes the Reds can salvage something from this awful series. First pitch is set for 1:10 PM ET, and Sal will be opposed on the mound by Tom Koehler. Tunes.

Game 97: Reds v. Marlins (7:10 PM ET) Stephenson vs. O’Grady



Better late than never.

Here ya go.

Reds vs. Marlins, Game 2: Previews and Predictions



Reds vs. Marlins

7:10 pm EDT

Robert Stephenson vs. Chris O’Grady

Surprisingly enough, Bob Steve hasn’t made a start for the Reds so far this season. We’re officially at the “let the young guys get as many starts as they can” part of the season, so guys like Stephenson will get some opportunities here to earn a starting spot for next year.

On the other side is Chris O’Grady, who the Reds actually selected in the 2015 Rule 5 draft, only to send him back to the Angels. This is the first time the Reds have faced a pitcher that they had previously selected in the Rule 5 draft in at least 20 years, which is where my research ended.

Go Reds.

Reds’ offense sputters again, loses to Miami 3-1



The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Homer Bailey gets it for me. After a lengthy rain delay, Homer came out a little skittish, giving up hits to the first two batters, eventually having them both score, but settled in nicely to go 6 innings and only allowing those two runs. The Reds’ offense didn’t have it tonight, but Homer kept the Reds in the game. Hard to ask for much more than that.

Honorable Mentions are due to: Eugenio Suarez, with two hits. Drew Storen, who had an impressive 8th inning, upping his trade value ever so slightly. Blake Wood, whose impressive defensive play kept the Reds within two runs in the 9th.

Key Plays

  • After a 1 hour and 47 minute rain delay, the Marlins got right to business in the first. After the Dee Gordon singled and Giancarlo Stanton doubled, Christian Yelich drove in the game’s first run grounding out to 2nd. Stanton then scored on a wild pitch (that would have struck out Marcell Ozuna) to make it 2-0. Eugenio Suarez got a nice unassisted double play off a Realmuto liner, but the damage was already done. Marlins up 2-0.
  • After Scott Schebler was hit by a pitch, Tucker Barnhart singled to put runners on the corners. After Homer sacrificed the runner over, Billy Hamilton hit a deep sac fly to RF to get the runner in and to get the Reds on the board. 2-1 Marlins.
  • Homer Bailey was solid through 6, and Wandy Peralta took over in the 7th. After getting in some early trouble, Scooter Gennett threw away a ball that could have got the Reds out of the inning. That’d come back to haunt the Reds, as Christian Yelich singled to drive in another run to give the Marlins a 3-1 lead.
  • The Reds threatened in the 7th, but the Marlins bullpen was able to shut things down. They did the same thing in the 8th and 9th to secure the win for Miami.

Other Notes

  • The current Reds will face former Red Chris O’Grady tomorrow night at 7:10. You may remember O’Grady from the 2015 Goodyear squad, as he was selected from the Angels in the Rule 5 draft, spent the entire spring with the Redlegs, and was sent back to Anaheim after spring ended.
  • Cincinnati will have Robert Stephenson on the mound tomorrow, making his first start of the season after 13 appearances out of the bullpen. Those have mostly been in long relief, and have been unsuccessful at the major league level.
  • Writing about tunes.
