    Dayton up 5-0. Cody Puckett is on fire. He is hitting .335/.400/.598 in May through his third at bat. He now has 8 HR's on the season.

    Remarkably, Reds farm teams started three lefties tonight (Jukich, Louisville; Wood, Carolina; Fairel, Dayton), and all three finished with seven scoreless innings. The collective line: 21 IP 9 H 0 R 4 BB 10 K.

    Jerry Gil for Sarasota pitched six innings and allowed two unearned runs. So the system's four starters allowed zero earned runs on the night. It was by far the best start of Gil's season--possibly his life, for that matter.

    According to the announcer it was a spot start. Do you think they will send him back to the bullpen?

    Wood's walk rate has been down his last couple starts. Good to see.

    Edit: Actually his K/BB ratio is better

    According to a poster on Doug's site, Wood was throwing in the 87-91 mph range last night and touching 92. Apparently his secondary pitches were sharp too. Over his last three starts, his walks have started to decrease and his strikeouts have increased. In 52 innings this season, Wood has allowed only 36 hits and one home run.

    Great night on the farm. The big question -- can Travis Wood hold up over the course of a full season?

    Nice little surge from the Dragons lately -- good to see.
