Dayton's 3rd inning
Contreras - Line out.
Pfister - Hard grounder but right at someone.
Carlson - Doubles off of the wall, Dayton's first hit.
Gregorius - Groundball to 2B to end the inning.

Scoring change - the error on Carlson changed to a hit.

Bottom of the 3rd
1st batter - Ball 1. Groundball up the middle grabbed by Rodriguez and thrown out for a nice play.
2nd batter - Falls behind 2-0. Foul ball. Low. Well outside for the walk.
3rd batter - Ball 1. Change up for a swing and a miss. Change up for a fly ball that Wiley loses in the sun/lights? It lands at his feet. Goes as an error as it may have actually hit his foot.
4th batter - Change up for strike one. Low for ball 1. Swing and a miss for strike 2. Groundball foul. Low and outside. Groundball to 2B who goes to Gregorius for the force, but they can't get two as the batter is supposedly very fast.
5th batter - Ball 1. Fastball for a strike. Pitch taken and another steal. Pitch was a ball. Breaking ball misses inside. Low for ball 4. Bases loaded.
6th batter - Foul ball. Swing and a miss. Grounder to Rodriguez to end the inning.

Bowling Green still leads 4-0.

He didn't walk many guys last season, so it could be nerves. We will see as the season goes along. He seems to be throwing around 87 MPH according to the PBP announcer.

Impressive night for Henry Rodriguez: 2-for-4 with a solo HR, a grand slam, and 5 RBI. He's also got 5 extra-base hits in 23 atbats - three doubles and two home runs. He also has 0 BB/0 K so far. That kid can hit.

Mariekson Gregorius is also off to a fine start at .375/.423/.583 - 1.006 OPS in 24 atbats.

Doubtful. Dorn can't play defense. Nix plays very good defense. The Reds won't take Dorn over Nix.

Went to the Bats/Clippers game last night. It was my first time in Huntington Park. Very impressive. Great place to watch a game.

Dorn was the obvious bright spot offensively. Like Doug noted, all three of his hits were off of lefties. His two doubles and HR were the hardest hit balls by either team all night. Frazier was hit by two pitches, the second was dangerously high.

The Bats struggled a bit in the field. Francisco dropped a line-drive right at him in left. Dorn had a liner go off the top of his glove (is he really 6'2? He didn't seem that tall) that was scored a hit but really should have been caught. A wild pitch gave Columbus their fifth run.

Former Buckeye Scott Lewis was very impressive in his start for the Clippers, striking out 10 Bats.

I think if that were the case he would have been taken in the Rule 5 draft and/or he would have been given a chance by the Reds before Laynce Nix was brought back.
