Felix Perez hits an RBI single to add some insurance. His BA is up to .296. I think he is the fastest riser in terms of prospect importance in the whole Reds system.
Soto ends the Bats' ninth with a flyout to left.
By the way, Hanigan was taken out after two PAs tonight. Anyone know if this was planned? Maybe the Reds don't want him to play a full game so he can catch tomorrow night?
Yohan Pino came in during the 8th and will start the 9th for the Bats. He starts off the inning by striking out the first hitter. Humberto Quintero then lines out to Pino for the second out. Pino strikes out Michael Martinez and this one belongs to the Bats.
The Bats are now back to .500 for the year at 17-17.
Sounds right. Also, it was a day game after a night game. I would look for Hanigan to be back with the Reds on Friday.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
