Gotcha, cool. Thanks for clearing that up.
Bats lost the game 8-5
The relievers allowed 4 runs in the 8th to lose the game
Herrera: 0 IP, 1 hit, 1 run, 1 ER
Roenicke: 1/3 IP, 3 hits, 2 runs, 2 ER
Coffey pitched a scoreless 9th with 2 K
As for the hitters:
D. T. Anderson:2-4, 1 triple
Barker-1-3, 1 triple
Griffin- 2-4, 1 double
Juan Duran went 1-3 with a walk and a triple.
But the walks are a great sign of his patience at the plate. Duran has shown two tools I normally question in "great talent" signings-- patience and speed.
The power should come in a couple years (although three extra-base hits isn't at all bad), the glove and arm will show up later as well. But the patience is really good to see this early.

Duran already has a stolen bases and three triples. Maybe it'd serve the Reds better if he didn't fill out so much and stayed a center fielder.
