Re: Minor League Updates: Thursday 7/04/2013
Missoula and Billings are underway. No score after one. Jose Guzman (0.90 ERA) on the mound. Rachal (.350) and Ervin (.362) with one-out singles but were left stranded. Guzman hangs up another goose egg. Billings up in the second.
Billings scores a couple in the bottom of the second. Ortiz (.360) walks. Ty Washington sends him with a triple (.333) and then scores on a wild pitch. 2-0 Billings.
Billings adds a run in the fourth. Gabriel Rosa is hit by a pitch. That is followed by singles off the bats of Ortiz and Washington. Jose Guzman has shut down Missoula for five innings. His ERA is a Cingranian 0.64. Billings 3 Missoula 0 in the middle of the fifth.
Billings stretches their lead to 6-0. Rachal walked. Ervin sent him scampering to third with his second single of the game. Rachal scored as Paula reached on an error. Ervin stole third (6) and came home on an errant throw. Paula scored on a ground out. 6-0 Billings.
Guzman's final line: 5.1IP 3H 0R 0ER 1BB 3K. Nice effort.
Scott Brattvet had a round introduction to rookie ball but has pitched well in his last two trips to the mound. He has gone 1.2 scoreless frames. No hits, no walks and two punch outs.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
