    Minor League Game Thread 5/4/24 SATURDAY

    ACL-REDS - The Reds rookie league team out in Arizona is kicking off its season today. The game is currently in the bottom of the 4th with the ACL-Reds trailing 2-1.

    Cole Schoenwetter drew the starting assignment, and went the 1st 3 innings. 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K.
    Ricardo Quintana is up next, and he has thrown a scoreless inning so far.

    Luis Reyes has picked up a pair of singles at the plate. Reyes is a 20-year-old out of Venezuela. In his 237 PA in the minors Reyes has hit well, compiling an OPS of .914.

    Redsminorleagues.com says this about him:
    Luis Reyes Scouting Report
    An offensive-first third baseman, Luis Reyes has good power potential. His approach at the plate appears advanced for his age and he has a chance to hit for both average and power in the future. Defensively hes got plenty of arm for third base.
    Drew Davies, from the Land Down Under, has laced a single as well as Georgian Kyle Henley.

    Jacob Hurtubise is rehabbing and leading off. He has been hit by a pitch and stole a base.

    Sheng-En Lin is in the lineup and playing 3rd base.

    Re: Minor League Game Thread 5/4/24 SATURDAY

    LOUISVILLE - The Bats are underway in St. Paul. They trail 1-0 with the Saints still hitting in the bottom of the 1st.

    Christian Roa is pitching for Louisville. He has taken 29 pitches so far to record 1 out. Back-to-back Ks looking gets Roa out of further trouble. Only needed 37 pitches.

    Livan Soto doubled in the 1st, but was left stranded.


    CORRECTION: The last pitch was challenged and was reversed. The batter walks to juice the bases, and Rao gets lifted for Tyler Gilbert.

    Bad News: Tyler Gilbert came on and did the usual Tyler Gilbert things, and the game is now pretty much out of hand at 7-0. Granted, there were a number of unearned runs, but whatever. Gilbert needed 32 pitches to get out of the inning. Saints hitters saw a total of 69 pitches in the inning. If either Roa or Gilbert see time in the Queen City this summer, the Reds are in deep, deep doo-doo.

    Stevie Branche worked 2.1, while giving up a run and fanning 3.
    Evan Kravetz has gotten 2 outs so far.

    Mark Trautwein blasted a solo shot (3) in the 2nd.
    A walk, an error, a line single by TJ Friedl and a single off the bat of Blake Dunn produced 3 runs in the 5th.

    ACL-REDS RECAP - Rookies gonna rookie. ACL-Reds score 6 in the bottom of the 8th to take an 8-4 lead, only to turn around and give up 6 runs in the top of the 9th. They fall 10-8.

    Next up was Jonathan Batista. He went 2.1, and gave up 6, striking out 4 in the process.
    Jefferson Lopez blew the save, recording 2 outs and giving up a 3-run jack.

    Plenty of baserunners on 8 walks, 9 hits (all singles) and 2 hit by pitches.

    Yosver Zulueta 2.0 innings, 1 run.

    The Louisville pitching staff struck out 14 during the contest.

    Bats hitters put up 6 runs, so that was a bright spot.

    Hunter Parks (1.1) and Jacob Heatherly (1.2) used 93 pitches to get through 3 innings. The duo walked 6, and were responsible for all 4 runs.

    The offensive was meek.
    Tyler Callihan doubled and walked twice.
    Daniel Vellojin walked twice.

    Jose Franco continued his strong start to the season with 4 innings of 1-run baseball. He struck out 7. Franco missed all of last season, but is more than making up for it in '24. His ERA dropped to 1.93.
    Simon Miller held PB in check for an inning.
    Nick Sando simply did not have it today. He was roughed up for 4 runs in 1.1 innings.
    Cody Adcock was aces with 2.2 innings of hitless baseball. He struck out 5, while lowering his ERA to 0.90.

    At the dish, Ricardo Cabrera singled and doubled.
    Dominic Pitelli rolls on with a pair of one-baggers.
    Alfredo Duno singled and lifted a sac fly.
    Ariel Almonte did it again, cracking a home run (9) and walking.

    DAYTON RECAP - Pitching is, was and always will be the name of the game, and the Dragons had it today.

    Myles Gayman worked an honest 2.2 innings, allowing just 1 run.
    Joseph Menefee notched his 1st save by fanning 3 in an inning and a 3rd.

    Cade Hunter singled and walked twice.

    CHATTANOOGA GAME TWO RECAP - The Lookouts only played 7 innings in the 2nd of 2 games today. They were walked-off in the bottom half of the 7th 5-4.

    Thomas Farr held a steady hand for 5 innings, allowing 3 runs, keeping 'Nooga in the game.
    Eddy Demurias pitched 1.2 innings and was tagged with a blown save and a loss. He surrendered 2 runs on 5 hits. He also inherited 2 runners and let them both come home. Not his finest hour.

    Allan Cerda singled and walked. OPS - .854.
    Mat Nelson homered (1) and walked. He scored 2 runs and drove in 2 more.

    I don’t think they come close to the worst record because at some point half of the current Dayton team is on Chatanooga. As bad as ‘nooga has been, I am surprised Dayton has not been better

    Evan Kravetz is quietly having a good year. He was a fifth round draft choice which is a little higher than most seniors have been drafted by the Reds. I think the Reds saw potential in the tall LHP that caused them to pull the trigger earlier than usual.

    Hurtibise struck out 3 times in his rehab game in the Rookie League...a 26-year old going against teenagers.
