Reds walk off against Brewers on Arismendy Alcantara double

2017-03-24T19:50:15-04:00

They were up, they were down, they were up, they were down...they won! The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game On a day when every offensive player largely went nuts, the pitching on both sides was ten kinds of awful, and the scoreboard couldn't make up its mind, the JNMHSotG goes to the player who walked things off - Arismendy Alcantara. Alcantara entered this game late, but his 2-run double in the Bottom of the 9th put the Cincinnati Reds down as winners on the day, which was a fitting way to finish this actionable affair. Alcantara finished 2 for 2 with a run scored, a double, a pair driven in, and his third stolen base of Cactus League play, and continues to look the part of a young, versatile utility player who can fit a roster quite perfectly. Honorable Mentions are due to: Zack Cozart, who went 3 for 4 with a dinger; Nick Senzel, who continued to make our hearts flutter with a double and an RBI in late game action; Eugenio Suarez, who had a solid 2 for 4 afternoon; Patrick Kivlehan, who went 2 for 2 with a pair of runs scored; Brandon Dixon, who spanked a pair of doubles and drove in 3; Sebastian Elizalde, who doubled as part of his 2 for 3, 2 ribbie afternoon; and probably twelve other guys who had multiple hits. Key Plays Cozart waltzed right out of the dugout in the Bottom of the 1st, put a ball on a tee, and blasted a leadoff dinger to put the Reds ahead, 1-0. Cincinnati wasn’t done in the opening frame, however, as back to back singles by Devin Mesoraco and Eugenio Suarez preceded a load-the-bases walk by Adam Duvall, and Schebler then followed with a 2-run single into LF. Duvall ended up on 3B only momentarily, as he then scored on a sac-fly to RF by Patrick Kivlehan. Reds led, 4-0. Milwaukee smacked back in the Top of the 2nd against Sal Romano, however. Jesus Aguilar singled to lead off, and he ended up on 3B when Manny Pina’s grounder to short resulted not into a 6-4-3 double play, but in runners on the corners when Cozart’s throw to Brandon Dixon at 2B went awry. Both then scored on a triple to the wall in LF by Eric Sogard, and Sogard himself scored on a double by Orlando Arcia. Former Red Ivan De Jesus, Jr. then leveled the score by singling into RF to bring Arcia home. De Jesus, Jr. ended up on 3B on a later double by Keon Broxton, and he then scored on a sac fly from Eric Thames that left the Reds trailing, 5-4. Elizalde got the Reds back in front in the Bottom of the 3rd when he dumped a double into the RF corner, scoring Schebler (who walked) and Kivlehan (who singled). He then scored a batter later when Dixon hit a deep double to the wall in CF, and the Reds led again, 7-5. Romano’s day ended in the Top of the 5th with a 2-run honk by Pino that went well, well over the wall in left-center. Game tied, 7-7. A ha! The Reds saw’d after Milwaukee see’d once again, as Dixon spanked a 2-run double in the Bottom of the 5th that scored both Kivlehan and Elizalde (both of whom had singled in front of him). Reds led, 9-7. After that, the substitutes came in flurries, and the back and forth nature of this game went bonkers. A Trent Clark triple off Drew Storen in the Top of the 7th scored Jesus Aguilar to make it 9-8 Reds, but Senzel’s double in the Bottom of the 8th drove in Alcantara to put the Reds back in front by a pair, 10-8. Unfortunately, a walk-single-walk start to the Top of the 9th was Jacob Ehret’s start to the day, and he then walked Rene Garcia to drive in a run. A walk wasn’t the problem to Nate Orf after that, though, as he spanked a double down the 3B line that kicked off Senzel’s glove, and it scored two to put Milwaukee in front, 11-10. All was not lost, however, as Hiram Burgos took the mound for the Brewers to attempt to close things out, and he was a complete dumpster fire. TJ Friedl singled to begin the Bottom of the 9th, and a Reydel Medina single and Shed Long walk loaded the bases, and Alcantara's walk-off double to CF scored enough Reds to put a W in the books. Reds won, 12-11! Other Notes Sal Romano got bit by his defense early, but [...]

Shower tumble leaves Raisel Iglesias with sore elbow

2017-03-24T12:30:22-04:00

Showering is hard, y’all. Some soreness in the back of prized Cincinnati Reds reliever Raisel Iglesias was enough to give us some pause. However, it was news that he was to be sidelined with elbow soreness that got our sugars up. Y’see, it’s a delicate time to talk elbows around Reds fans. Homer Bailey has seemingly been through three of them since we last watched him pitch, with each and every prognosis he receives somehow continually degenerating into goo within a few days of the initial revelation. Then there’s Anthony DeSclafani, whose elbow recently went through the runaround of "it’s fine" to "it’ll need a break" to "we don’t have to cut it open with a knife yet, but you’re not going to see him until June at best." Jon Moscot’s elbow is a wreck we won’t see again until 2018, Zack Weiss missed all of 2016 with a linguini elbow and just recently had another procedure performed on it, and the team’s elbow epidemic reached such a zenith yesterday that a Red Reporter broke news of prospect Nick Hanson’s pending Tommy John surgery. It's been a nonstop cycle of "any news is bad news, and bad news is worse news" on the Cincinnati elbow front, and that's what made yesterday's report on Iglesias from The Enquirer's Zach Buchanan that much more... Well, I'll admit - I laughed my ass off at the news. Raisel Iglesias said he hurt his elbow and hips because he fell in the shower three weeks ago. — Zach Buchanan (@ZachENQ) March 23, 2017 A 6-5 righty out of Minnesota, he pitched sparsely after being drafted last season, throwing just 16.2 innings in 8 games with the AZL Reds in Goodyear. Still, he's an extremely projectable pitcher from a location not necessarily known as a hotbed of pitching production, and it's obvious the Reds held him in high regard for quite some time, as Hanson himself told the Minneapolis Star Tribune after last June's draft. For the Reds, it's not just a setback, but another gut punch in a somewhat alarming trend. Four of their last five 3rd round draft picks have been pitchers, and Hanson now joins each of Wyatt Strahan (2014), Mark Armstrong (2013), and Dan Langfield (2012) as pitchers who have missed entire seasons due to major surgery. Each of Strahan and Armstrong have recently dealt with Tommy John surgery themselves, while Langfield has battled through more injuries than Devin Mesoraco to the Devin Mesoracoth power. (Someone go make sure Blake Trahan, the lone position player drafted in the 3rd round in that stretch, is doing OK.) Hopefully, it'll be a smooth recovery for Hanson, who's still plenty young enough to rebound from this successfully and be an impact arm in Cincinnati's system. *The Enquirer's Zach Buchanan later corroborated Roseberry's initial report.
