Jerry has stated that he'll always go to whichever game is furtherest away. It seems that EE is on the same plan. Seems like JN is taking an extra long look at EE this spring.

The Twins announcer mispronounced 7 out of the 9 names in the starting lineup for the Reds. Some of them were badly botched.

Rich and Tuffy the only ones he got?

Missed the beginning, but the Reds put Wise, Hatteberg, and Rhodes on base in the first and didn't score. Edwin Encarnacion popped up with two on and one out, so count on another Narron comment about knowing how to play the game.

Popup to shallow center gets Dave Williams the first out. Wind playing tricks with the ball today.

Luis Castillo draws a five-pitch walk.

Joe Mauer grounds to second and Aurilia bobbles the ball. He manages to get the FC, but Mauer beats the throw to first. Two out.

Rondell White. Grounds quickly into a 5-4 FC.

End of 1, 0-0.

Top of 2.

Andy Abad. Works a full count, then draws the walk.

Ray Olmedo. Scrappiness is expected here. Bunt is popped up to the catcher. Someone get the rifle. One out.

Dane Sardinha. Another popup to the catcher. Two down.

DeWayne Wise. Doubled in the first. Smacks a 1-2 pitch through the infield for a single, moving Abad to second.

Rich Aurilia. Falls behind 1-2 as the announcers recount the Mariners' signing of Rich as their "shortstop of the future" (WTF?) and their quick disappointment. Aurilia looks at a third strike to end the inning.

Not the most riveting game ever. 0-0 after 1.5.

This one announcer is about the most unprofessional person I've ever heard on the radio. I realize he's not familiar with the Reds roster, but at least make an attempt to pronounce the names correctly. This guy isn't even trying, he's an embarassment.

It may be the same announcer the other day who opined that Harang wasn't a lock for the rotation. I just about drove off the side of the road when he said that...

Bottom of 2.

Torii Hunter gets on base somehow, didn't hear.

Cuddyer. Williams walks him, too, after getting to 2-2.

Tony Batista. Waves at the first pitch and pops up to Olmedo. You can always count on this guy. This is then related to Kirby Puckett by the announcers. Nice, dudes.

Jason Hart. 1-2 pitch popped up to first, two down.

Williams then whiffs Nick Punto to finish the inning.

0-0 after 2. Dave hasn't exactly dominated, but it's been his best outing to date.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 02:47 PM
Top of 3.

No, Krono, he wasn't. Although the way Dane hits, he might as well be bunting every time.

Hatteberg watches two straight strikes. C'mon, swing! This isn't Oakland. He flies out to right.

Encarnacion. HIGH DRIVE TO DEEP LEFT-CENTER OHMIGOD IT'S OUTTA HERE HOME RUN NUMBER FOUR OF THE SPRING

1-0 Reds.

Rhodes. High fly to right is out number two.

Denorfia. Another fly to right.

End of 2.5, it's Encarnacion 1, Twins 0.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 02:53 PM
Kubel leads off the bottom of the third and is retired on a broken-bat liner to short. One out.

Castillo walks again. That's four for Williams, geez. C'mon, quit channeling Steve Avery.

Mauer flies out to left on a 1-2 count. Two down.

White. Full count. Strikeout swinging on a fastball.

1-0 Reds after 3.

Tons of walks for Williams, but getting out of it for now. Announcers have mentioned that both pitchers appear to have been getting squeezed early.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 03:04 PM
Andy Abad grounds to second to open the Reds' fourth. New pitcher is righty Matt Guerrier.

Missed the rest of the inning, but I don't think anything happened.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 03:09 PM
Bottom of 4.

Torii Hunter smacks a base hit to right off Matt Belisle, the new pitcher.

Dave Williams: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 2 K.

Mike Cuddyer smacks another single. Two pitches, two hits.

Batista grounds into a double play. Nice 6-4-3 turned in by the Olmedo-Aurilia duo.

membengal
03-08-2006, 03:10 PM
Matt Belisle in to pitch in the 4th, Hunter leads off with a single.

Cuddyer follows with a single as well. Two pitches, two on, no outs, men on 1st and 2nd.

Williams didn't allow a hit in his three innings, altho there were the four walks.

At the moment, still 1-0, Cincy.

Sorry, Doc, I will stay out of your way...

Matt Bell-ile

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 03:15 PM
No biggie. I do work and stuff too and sometimes miss things.

Jason Hart works a full count from Belisle, then grounds to Encarnacion, who muffs it for the error. Run scores, tie game. Jerry Narron leaves the dugout to advise Rob Butcher that Edwin will be getting off the plane at Kentucky's other airport come April 1st.

Nick Punto gets ahead 3-1 but grounds into a force to end the inning.

Man, Batista is like the Twins' version of Womack. Even the happy-face Twins' announcers seem to know it.

Matt Guerrier back for inning number two.

Wise is 2 for 2. Drive down the RF line but foul. FLY BALL TO DEEP RIGHT CUDDYER BACK TO THE TRACK REACHES UP BUT NO HOME RUN WISE

2-1 Reds. Good day for de DeWayne.

Aurilia. Quick flyout to center on the first pitch.

Hatteberg takes two more called strikes. Popup into center and Punto falls down trying to catch it. The drop puts Scotty on first base. Don't know if this is an error or hit.

Encarnacion swings through the first pitch. Another swing and a miss. Grounder down the LF line foul. Another foul. Fly to shallow center is two outs.

Rhodes falls behind two strikes, third batter in a row. Foul. Pitch taken low, then Mauer guns Hatteberg down on the delayed steal without much effort.

WTF was that idea? Hatteberg might lose to Sean Casey in a footrace.

2-1 Reds after 4.5.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 03:31 PM
Bottom of 5; Jason Standridge now pitching. Brian Buchanan in the game, so expect the Twins announcers to fall all over themselves talking about him.

Kubel lines a single to left. He leaves for the pinch-runner Jason Tyner.

Castillo falls behind 0-2, but works the count full. Grounder to short retires Luis, but allows Tyner to move to second.

Mauer lines out to left in a nice play by Abad.

White singles on a 3-2 breaking ball to score Tyner and tie the score.

Andres Torres, now in CF, sees the pinch-runner for White picked off while he's batting.

Standridge continues to show good stuff, but he's either struggling with his control or leaving too many out over the plate (as he was today).

2-2 after 5.

Top of 6.

AAA legend Dave Gassner now pitching for Minnesota.

Tuffy Rhodes smashes one to the gap, but nice defense by Torres holds him to a single.

Denorfia. Falls behind 1-2, then pops up to first in foul territory.

Abad. Abad at-bat, as he's caught looking. Two outs.

Olmedo. Runs the count all the way out and grounds to second, but no throw. Infield single. Rhodes to second.

Sardinha. Walks on four in a row (!). Bases loaded.

Buchanan. Taps the Puckett #34 decal in front of home plate in tribute before stepping in. Ball one, high. Back-to-back strikes put him in a 1-2 hole. Grounder right back to the mound leaves the bases loaded for the second time in the game.

2-2 after 5.5.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 03:58 PM
Bottom of 6. Luke Hudson now pitching. Announcers are incredulous that Hudson could make 16 starts for the Reds in 2005 and not make the 40-man roster. Bert Blyleven expertly notes the 6.38 ERA.

Torres. Grounder to short and Olmedo guns him down. One out.

Cuddyer. Walks. Romero pinch-runs.

Batista. Takes a pitch for the first time in the game... a strike. Low for a ball. Foul back, 1-2. Low, 2-2. Pops up a fastball right down Broadway for the out. Two down.

Hart. Ball one. Rolls away from Sardinha but the PR's not running. Ball two. Ball three. Popup to first on the 3-0 count to end the inning.

2-2 after 6.

Olmedo - the guy the Reds don't need.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 04:07 PM
Not especially bad or anything, actually. I think they started slow, and Blyleven isn't the normal color guy. Dan Gladden's out of town for Kirby Puckett's funeral or something.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 04:07 PM
Top of 7. Gassner still pitching.

Aurilia falls behind 0-2. Makes an out somehow.

Hatteberg pops up to third, two down.

Earl Snyder batting for Encarnacion. Ball one. Popup to second ends the inning.

2-2 after 6.5.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 04:11 PM
Bottom of 7. Brian Shackleford now pitching. Votto at 1B. Herr at 2B.

Tyner brushed back on a bunt attempt, heh. 3-0 count. Walks.

Watkins. He's compared to Kirby Puckett in personality. Shackleford, unimpressed, whiffs him with a breaking ball. One down.

Heintz, the catcher. Made the bigs last year after ten years in the minors. Liner down the LF line, all the way to the wall. Tyner held at third, and he's caught off base after a wide turn! A 7-6-5 play on the out. Lucky play for the Reds and Shackleford.

Still 2-2 after 7.

That doesn't say much about olmedo who I seriously doubt will ever have a substantial career in the majors. Not only is he a poor hitter but I really don't think he's that good in the field.

Same goes for Bergolla, although he may be a better fielder.

Doc. Scott

Top of 8. Righty Adam Harben pitching for Minnesota. I believe he's a Bailey-style prospect for them. He gave up four runs in 1.1 innings in his last appearance.

Rhodes flies out on an 0-1 pitch.

Denorfia bounces the first pitch to shortstop. Two outs.

Abad bounces to second on a nice play by Watkins. Four pitches, three outs.

2-2 after 7.5.

Doc. Scott
03-08-2006, 04:27 PM
Bottom of 8. Ryan Wagner pitching. More mythology from the Twink announcers about GABP's propensity to promote offense.

First batter grounds to short. One out.

Votto makes a great leaping catch on a liner by Torres for the second out.

Rookie Alex Romero takes a strike. Fly to left ends the inning.

Easy frame for Wagner, for once. 2-2 after 8.

Bottom of 9, with Allan Simpson in to close it.

Shawn Wooten leads off. Two quick strikes. Three balls in a row to run the count full. Foul. Fly to right-center, Denorfia makes the catch. One out.

Garrett Jones also falls behind 0-2. Another run to the full count. Foul. Grounder through the right side past Aaron Herr for a base hit. Denard Span, who's fast, is pinch-running.

Mazza, the shortstop. Strike one. Fly to shallow right-center, drops for a hit! Span stopped at second.

First and second, one out. I like Simpson, but I want him mopping up for a while.

Pickoff attempt juuuuuust misses nailing Denard Span.

Tyner takes ball one. Low, ball two. Strike at the letters. Inside, ball three, almost hit him. Then he does hit him on the next one.

Bases loaded.

Watkins. 6-4-3 DOUBLE PLAY ENDS THE GAME!!

Geez. Nice Mitch Williams impression by Simpson.

Reds win 3-2. W- Wagner, S-Simpson.

Good thing the batter "put the ball in play" instead of striking out. The hitter behind him may have singled in the winning run.
