Gordon lined to Trout. Winker smashed one that Iglesias made great snag on. Barnhart walked and Farmer lines single up the middle. India flares one for bloop hit. 1-0. Naquin grounds softly to end inning.

I enjoyed the small ball way of scoring that inning.

Pretty nice ABs in that inning. Naquin though has been quite unimpressive so far.

Ohtani hits a home run. Lorenzen seemed unsure of what to do with him.

But then he strikes out Trout, so good for Mikey.

First hitter grounds out, but Ohtani hits an opposite field homer. K's Trout looking. Rendon flies to CF. 1-1

Arizona HR. That stays in the park pretty much in every MLB park.

nice AB by Blandino who worked a walk

Some guy named Mike Trout made a nice catch to end the inning.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 04:42 PM
Blandino walks after catcher tried to steal a third strike and Cobb pouted on the hill. Payton lines ball to gap but Trout runs it down. Blandino out by a mile on a steal. Holder lines out on nice play.

Lorenzen slowly lowering his ERA

Game 1 - 16.20
Game 2 - 13.50
Game 3 - 12.60 (so far)

It sure was.
Looked like somebody missed a sign

Lorenzen has looked pretty good against a formidable lineup.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 04:53 PM
First guy grounds up middle but Reds had him played perfectly with shift. Second guy K's. Iglesias lines a double into the gap. And then K's Fowler

Lorenzen slowly lowering his ERA

Game 1 - 16.20
Game 2 - 13.50
Game 3 - 10.50 (so far)

Hope he goes another inning

From watching a handful of the opposing teams feeds this spring, the narrative is clearly that the Reds couldn't hit with a darn last year, they've lost Bauer, and thus they'll be worse this year.

I'm not saying they're wrong but they all seem so very sure that this is true.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 04:56 PM
Gordon K's, Winker taps slowly out to 1b, Barnhart K's looking

Ohtani hits second Homerun of game.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 05:05 PM
Fletcher flies out to warning track. And then Ohtani duplicates his opposite field homer 2-1 Angels. Trout flies out. Rendon pops out.

Lorenzen slowly lowering his ERA

Game 1 - 16.20
Game 2 - 13.50
Game 3 - 10.29 (so far)

I assume he's done.

NebraskaRed

Reds - 1
Angels (if we pretend that Ohtani doesn't exist) - 0

Ron Madden
03-15-2021, 05:11 PM
I'm watching the game on FSO but listening to Chris Welsh and Tommy Thrall on radio. They could possibly be the best Reds broadcast team if they could work together more this year.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 05:12 PM
Farmer grounds out and India K's looking. Pitching change. Naquin K's.

Can Ohtani play shortstop? Maybe make a deal?

NebraskaRed
03-15-2021, 05:17 PM
Naquin is not doing much to make a case for himself.

JaxRed

Payton has a better argument for making the club. Both lefties, Payton has better defense, is on the 40 and is hitting .308 compared to .136

Good play by Winker

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 05:24 PM
Lorenzen back in, gets first hitter on weak ground out, then Pujols lines to Winker. They'll give him a hit but next guy hits ball that Gordon should have had but he mufffed it. Then Iglesias lines a single. And that's it for Lorenzen.

Bo Takahashi coming in for one out (I assume).

Bo knows last outs.

Game 1 - 16.20
Game 2 - 13.50
Game 3 - 9.39 (single digits !!)

Takahshi seems like solid option so far.

Pretty sure Iglesias would bat .1000 against us no matter who is pitching

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 05:37 PM
Blandino K's and then Payton gets bad hop single. Pitcher leaves game injured. I predict groin pull. Holder grounds a single and Gordon grounds out. It's up to Winker.

Winker pulls a double down the line and Reds are up 3-2.

Tucker lines a soft hit to LF. Farmer grounds out.

4-2

Enjoy it. The Reds rarely take advantage with 2 out hits.

Noe Ramirez takes care of Ohtani like it's no big deal.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 06:00 PM
Another pitcher in need of some ERA lowering.... Noe Ramirez 15.00 ERA is in. K's the first hitters including Ohtani. Trout grounds out.

ERA down to 11.25

Nice steal of 3rd by Strange-Gordon. Nobody was there.

JaxRed
03-15-2021, 06:18 PM
India lines out, Naquin walks, Blandino grounds a single thru the IF and Payton lines opposite field gapper to score 2. Gordon wearing a mask even though there's never been a case of athlete's getting Covid on the field. He walks.

Wink up again !

Wild pitch, both runners advance, run scores.

Gordon steals third catching Angels/Rendon napping. Wink walks. Trust me Angels would be rolling this inning if they could. Barnhart flies out on first pitch after a walk.

Red 7 - Ohtani -2

Great bounceback inning for Cionel Perez after fighting his command in his last outing.

I've really liked Perez for years, and would love to see him crack the rotation.

Other than his inability to get Ohtani out, Lorenzen had a very good 4 innings against an actual lineup of major leaguers.

No Ramirez had a slow start to the spring, but here’s what he did against the top of the Angels order today
-Breaking ball strike three against Fletcher (.319 hitting in 2020)
-Breaking ball strike three against Ohtani
-Gets Mike Trout to ground out to third base.

Ohtani hits second Homerun of game.

Mlb.com will spend the remainder of the 2021 season and half the winter to go gonzo over this. They have Ohtani fever there. If he drops a frankfurter on the way to the clubhouse, it's news.
