Re: Minor League Updates: Wednesday 4/24/2013
Bakersfield brought the lumber last night but, unfortunately, that is only half of the equation. They scored nine runs on 15 hits, including home runs by Marquez Smith (1) and Yorman Rodriguez (4) in a 15-9 loss to High Desert. Ryan Wright, Marquez Smith, Juan Silverio and Juan Silva had three hits apiece, while Yorman chipped in a pair and Yovan Gonzalez added one.
Pitching was spotty to be kind. Jacob 'Jake' Johnson went three plus innings, allowing eight runs on ten hits. Brooks Pinckard was hammered for four runs in his two/thirds innings of work. Relief pitching, aside from Pinckard, was much better, Dennhardt, Muhammad, Pearl and McMynce only allowed one run in 4.1 innings of work. Too little, too late.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
