    Reds Minor League Scores, 5/12

    In AAA, Louisville has Tony Santillan taking on Gwinnett's southpaw Tucker Davidson. The Bats won last night to run their record to 2 - 4. Ick. They play Gwinnet, whose record is now 5 - 2. Old friend Phil Ervin plays for the Stripers. Interesting factoid: the Stripers are named after the sweat stains that run down most Georgians backs in the months they watch baseball outside. I'm not saying it's hot and sticky in Georgia, but hot cross buns won't even visit from June to September. Tony Santillan, if you weren't aware, is a part-time swami in his time away from baseball. He picked it up from a guru in New Guinea. He is available for parties of 15 or more on the days he is not pitching.

    In AA, I'm guessing Nick Lodolo will pitch against the Biscuits of Montgomery. Interesting facts about Montgomery. It's the birthplace of bad country music. Any lyrics about beer, trucks, celebrating barefoot beauties who can drive tractors, or raisin' cane have to be written in Montgomery, by federal law. If you break this law, you must listen to Conway Twitty for 48 hours straight. As you all know, Nick Lodolo hasn't walked anyone since his days as a college pitcher in Texas. Did you know he also refuses to walk anywhere? He either sprints from place to place or is carried by Hunter Greene.

    In Dayton, Noah Davis of the 1.80 ERA, 8 K, 5 IP line in his first game, steps to the mound again. He'll be opposed by Brady Basso. Interesting story about Brady Basso, his name is widely considered to most irritating in all of minor league baseball. Brady, as I'm sure you all know, is the most punchable of first names. And Basso has a curse word in the middle of it. So that's bad. Noah Davis, on the other hand, is a kind and generous lover who tips at least 25 percent on all take-out orders.

    The Tortugas turn their lonely eyes to Rice alum Evan Kravetz. Believe it or not, he has the highest ERA of all the Red minor league starters tonight, at 2.70. Kravetz went to school at Rice, which is not named after the food. In fact, Rice is named after Sam Rice, the Hall of Fame Washington Senator. Rice was not an actual Senator, as he was actually born on the banks of the Indus River and was therefore ineligible. Evan Kravetz is the great-grandson of Edna Kravetz, the nosy neighbor from Bewitched, who died tragically in a nose wrinkling accident.

    Brian Rey singles and is promptly picked off 1B.

    Siani and Cotton are then K'ed.

    Austin Hendrick doubles against the Port St. Lucie Mets, then Garrett Wolforth hits a dinger to put the 'Tugas up 2 - 0.

    Tyler Callihan has raised his BA above .300.

    That's good.

    Lightning delayed the game.

    That's bad.

    You can close the books on Tony Santillan in Louisville-- 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K. 76 pitches, 46 strikes. Struggled with command a bit, but another solid outing.

    Might be time for a call-up.

    And now time for some history-- Nick Lodolo registers the first walk of his career. Cal Stevenson is the beneficiary.

    No word yet on the mandatory vision test for the home plate umpire.

    Noah Davis, 5 IP, 4 BB, 8 K. That is all.

    There is nothing going on-- nothing at all, in fact-- but he's at 79 pitches on the night.

    Brandon Finnegan came in again and pitched well-- 1 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K.

    Lodolo really laboring, walked two guys in the third. Bases juiced with Biscuits-- the Lookouts losing by one.

    And he works out of it.

    Still a 1 - 0 Montgomery lead.

    Bats have been nearly completely silent across all four games tonight.

    Sigh.

    And there goes the no-no: Davis gives up his first hit-- a single-- in the 6th.

    With that, he's done. Two runner on are still his, but his line is vintage 2019 Luis Castillo: 5 IP, 1 H, 5 BB, 8 K.

    Melissa... Nope, check that. Jake Gilbert now on to staunch the bleeding.

    And with that, Davis's night looks far less promising.

    Gilbert allows both inherited runners to score. (Must... not... make... pun... about... Little Home on the Prairie...)

    I'm outta here. Someone else can take over the play-by-play if they'd like.
