Reds' farm teams will be sending out some stellar pitching tonight.
Louisville - The Bats will be hosting Pawtucket. They are currently the only Reds' affiliate that is at .500 or better, standing at 23 up and 23 down. Tony Cingrani will be handling the pitching duties. 'Nuf said.
Pensacola - The Blue Wahoos travel to Chattanooga. Their record is 16-27. Sharky Rogers, thrown out of his last start for arguing a call at third, will try to inch Pensacola closer to the .500 mark. Incidentally, I don't believe that I have ever seen or heard of a pitcher getting ejected for a call at a base.
Bakersfield - The Blaze try to make it six in a row tonight as the host Stockton. Bakersfield is 16-29 on the season. Jon Moscot is coming off what was by far his best start of the year. He hurled six innings of one-hit, one-walk baseball, striking out nine.
Dayton - West Michigan will be visiting the 18-27 Dragons. Drew Cisco draws the starting assignment. Cisco is sporting a pretty sweet 43/4 K/BB ratio. I wonder if the fact that he missed a year might provide the impetus for him being moved up to Bakersfield this summer?
