Re: Cactus League 2/28/13 Split Squad Rox/Snakes
Back to a little baseball:
Reds have three runs on five hits (all singles) through five. Derrick Robinson, Yorman Rodriguez, Devin Mesoraco have one each, Neftali Soto a pair of singles.
Homer Bailey started and went two innings. He gave up three runs on fours. Only one run was earned as Henry (Manos de Piedras) Rodriguez made his fifth error of the spring.
Manny Parra is pitching his way to Louisville, giving up two runs in his two innings of work. Marshall pitched a perfect fifth, whiffing a pair.
Broxton works a scoreless sixth.
Looks as if the Reds have few if any regulars playing. Nice for them. Off Thursday, rain Friday, off Saturday. A mini-vacation.
Cesar Izturis homered to make it 5-4 Brewers after six.
Ondrusek worked a scoreless seventh, walking one and giving up a hit.
Arredondo came on in the 8th and promptly gave up a leadoff double. A one-out single put runners on the corners. Jose escapes on a 3-2-5-4 double play. Won't see many of those I am guessing.
In the bottom of the 8th, Lutz singled, Hessman reached on an error and Negron walked to load them up. Izturis singled in one and the second run came home on a Corky Miller fielder's choice.
J.J. Hoover worked a perfect ninth to record the save, striking out a pair. It would be a crime if he started the year in AAA.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
