Nice outing by Partch. He's pitched really well lately. Dusty is using him in extra innings, when the pen is tired, fill in spots. This is one of the biggest stages he's been on.
But he's got really good stuff.
Let's maybe score a run now.
Partch has the stuff to be a really good pitcher...he needs the chance in some of these leveraged situations to learn...even if he blows a couple
The one thing more upsetting than this offense is the fact that there are folks here making excuses for them.
19 K's by the Reds' staff and only one unintentional walk.
I'll take a 19:1 K:BB ratio, I think. It's almost worth of being tolerated.

It isn't discussed nearly enough how good Bryan Price is at his job.
