Re: June 17 minor league updates
Just got back from tonight's Dragons game. Another very good start by Travis Wood he pitched 6 good innings tonight allowing only 2 hits and 2 walks and only 1 earned run. The Dragons defense committed 4 errors tonight leading to 2 unearned runs.
Matt Belisle was the next pitcher in the game. He pitched a solid 7th but struggled a little in the 8th giving up 3 singles. One of those was an infield single just off Belisle's glove. The inning was prolonged by another Dragons error that led to an unearned run. He did get out of trouble in that inning with a strikeout and a fly out to end the inning. I can't tell how his velocity was because once again the radar gun was not working at Fifth Third Field. But his delivery looked good and I expect to see Belisle back with the Reds soon.
The Dragons came back from being down 3-1 in the bottom of the 8th on a one out 2 run double by B.J. Symanski. Then Habolito Hernandez singled in a run with 2 outs to give the Dragons the lead.
Jay Bruce looked good again going 2 for 3 with his 24th double of the year.
Blake Hendley came in for his 15th save. He walked the leadoff batter but then got a ground out and two flyouts to end the game.
This comeback win is the Dragons 5th straight win.
