Re: Bronson's Red's Debut: Game Thread for 3/25 vs. the Twinkies
Liriano on the hill. Why can't Krivsky trade for guys like this?
1.) Tony Womack steps into the batters box. RedsZone erupts into a chorus of boos. Womack takes a walk on 4 straight pitches. He displays anger while trotting up the first base line at the thought of his OBP rising slightly.
1 on, 0 out.
2.) Felipe Lopez with a line drive base hit. Somewhere, Dave Miley mutters about Aurillia not getting enough ABs. 1st and 2nd with 0 outs. Reds, shall we say, threatening...
3.) Ken Griffey Jr. bounces to the shortstop, with the only play going to the 1st baseman to retire Jr. The runners advance. BadFundamentalness Factor: 3.
4.) Edwin Encarnacion hits a rocket ground rule double to drive in the first 2 runs of the game for the Reds. 2 runs score for the good guys. Narron tells reporters that Louisville fans can look forward to lots of that from Edwin this year. 2-0 Reds.
5.) Dunn grounds out to the first baseman, with the pitcher covering. Can't stress the importance of pitchers fielding practice often enough. Dunn robbed of a hit, the runner advances. The joy of making contact and moving the runner over. Scrappiness Factor: 4. 3rd with 2 out.
6.) Rich Aurillia decides there's just too much fun happening in this inning, and kills the party with a groundout to 3rd. Inning over.
Going to the 2nd, Reds 2, Twinks 1.
23 Years and Counting...
