Re: 2012 Arizona Fall League Discussion
Peoria defeated Surprise by a 3-2 margin in the AFL on Friday. Donald Lutz went 3 for 4 and is now hitting .517. He went deep off of J.C. Sulbaran with a man on in the first. In the fifth, Billy Hamilton bunted for a hit, stole second, went to third on an errant throw by the catcher and scored the eventual game-winner on a ground out to second. He was 1 for 4 with his fifth stolen base on the season. It looks as if all four Reds' pitchers threw in the game. Crabbe started and went 2.2 innings. He gave up a run on two hits. He walked two and struck out two. Josh Ravin relieved him and gave up a run in his 1.1 innings of work. He allowed a hit and neither walked nor struck out anyone. Drew Hayes followed and worked two hitless innings. He walked one and struck out three. Curtis Partch pitched the ninth and picked up the save. He gave up a single and a base on balls, while striking out a pair.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
