Not good for Andrew Brackman, who started for the Bats today. He walked 5 batters in 1 inning of work, threw 3 wild pitches and only had 8 strikes in 34 pitches before being pulled. The Bats trail 5-0. Only a Corky Miller single is on the board for the Bats.
Brackman walked the first three batters he faced in the second to load them up. He was replaced by Scott Carroll who promptly walked the first two batters he pitched to.
Five straight walks to open the second lead to five runs.
A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
