    Re: Game Thread 5/23 Reds vs. Nationals

    CINCINNATI (Ticker) -- Eric Milton, the National League's leader in homers allowed, starts for the struggling Cincinnati Reds on Monday against the power-hungry Washington Nationals in the opener of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park.

    Milton (2-5, 7.16 ERA) has been a major disappointment after inking a three-year, $25.5 million contract with Cincinnati this winter. The veteran lefthander has allowed a league-high 15 homers and has surrendered six runs or more in four of his last five outings.

    In this one, Milton faces a Nationals offense that has managed just nine homers in 20 games this month. Washington scored a total of one run in dropping the first two games of its weekend series with Toronto, but pounded out 13 hits in a 9-2 victory on Sunday.

    Washington sends Esteban Loaiza (1-2, 3.08) to the mound as the veteran righthander looks to beat the Reds for the first time in more than eight seasons. His only victory against Cincinnati came on April 17, 1997 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    Loaiza has held opponents to three runs or fewer in eight straight starts, including Wednesday against Milwaukee when he tossed eight scoreless innings but did not factor in the 1-0 loss.

    The Reds dropped two of three this weekend to the Cleveland Indians, and have lost six of their last seven games overall. Cincinnati is 0-8-3 in its last 11 series since taking two of three from Houston from April 15-17.

    Eric Milton vs the likes of Castilla and Jose Guillen is a frightening thought

    Re: Game Thread 5/23 Reds vs. Nationals

    wathced about 5 starts from Loaiza today. righters, he likes going cutter, slider, slider, sinker. lefties slider, slider, sinker, four-seamer. then when runners get on it's almost entirely cutters and slider to righties. sinkers and sliders to lefties. when he gets a lefty 0-2, he likes throwing a 4 seamer. i think he does that with Dunn or Griffey, they'll hit the ball a long way.

    throws cutter: 32.6%, 86-89 MPH, sits at 88
    slider: 22.8%, 84-86 MPH, sits at 86
    sinker: 29.3%, 88-90 MPH, sits at 88
    four-seamer: 10.9%, 90-92 MPH, sits at 91
    curveball: 3.2%, 77-78 MPH, sits at 77

    I'm just here to report the news, not comment on it.

    Here's to the first game in a Graves Free World.

    Can we trade Welsh and Grande to the Braves for Skip and Pete?

    Pre-game, Milton gives up 0 HR.

    Thanks for the info! I wonder if the Reds look at information like that. I remember hearing Miley say something about not looking too closely at that sort of thing.

    I told a few people at work today that Milton will give up at least 6 runs by the 6th inning. He's been making me look very smart lately. lol

    he (Loaiza) also threw a fastball sidearm in his last start against Lyle Overbay. it crossed up Overbay so badly he nearly fell down.
