Re: Minor League Updates: Tuesday 4/30/2013
Dayton just underway. Romano got dinged by a comebacker. Trainer came out and, after a couple of practice tosses, Romano will stay in the game.
Wandy Peralta is getting up in the Dragons' bullpen. That does not auger well for Romano's condition.
I was going to say that Romano is throwing some heavy cheese, having struck out two in the top of the first, but....
Top of the second. Romano out; Peralta in. Peralta struggling in the top of the second. Bases loaded and one run in. Two out.
For some reason Winker is coming out of the game and is being replaced by Humberto Valor. Both Romano and Winker have come out of the game and it is only in the top of the third. Bees push three runs across in the top of the third and lead 4-0. Peralta allows two more hits in the top of the fourth but escapes trouble as Mejias-Brean snags a rope and doubles the runner off second. Dragons still looking for their first hit as they come to the plate in the bottom of the fourth. And still no hits through four, he said, hoping to jinx the no-hitter.
Dayton gets a leadoff single from Seth Mejias-Brean but can't cash in. Baby steps.
Still just one hit through seven now. Still trailing 4-0.
Alejandro Chacin took over pitching duties and pitched a scoreless seventh. He finishes with three scoreless innings. Burlington was held hitless in its last 4.2 innings but it was too little too late.
Dragons get two hits. A single by SMB, and a double by Tanner Rahier.
Dragons lose 4-0.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
