It was a 3-2 win for Peoria as they outhit Surprise 10 to six. Every Reds pitcher was used in this one and two of the three hitters saw action as well. They all did their best to figure into deciding the game as well.
-CF Billy Hamilton went 1-4, with a run scored and a stolen base (5). He scored the go-ahead run in the 5th inning. He reached on a bunt, stole second, got to third on a throwing error by the catcher, and then scored on a groundout.
-1B Donald Lutz finished 3-4, with a double and a two-run home run. It was his first homer and his third and fourth RBI of the season. Interestingly enough, he hit it off former Reds prospect J.C. Sulbaran who was part of the Jonathan Broxton trade. He raised his batting average to a lofty .517.
-RHP Tim Crabbe started and went 2.2 innings, allowing an earned run on two hits, two walks, and a homer. He also struck out two batters.
-RHP Josh Ravin relieved Crabbe and was promptly charged with a blown save (2) after giving up one ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Kyle Lotzkar has dealt with a lot since being drafted by the Reds. He has had multiple injuries, including several arm injuries. In 2011 he threw a career higher 66.2 innings. Still just 22, he would go on to throw 112.2 innings in 2012 as he split his year between Bakersfield and Pensacola.
The Reds started the Canadian right hander out in Bakersfield where he made four starts in...
Today marks day seven of the Top 12 Games of
the Reds Season series. The campaign may have ended abruptly, and in somber
fashion, but there is still plenty to smile about when thinking about the past
six months or so. We will be counting down the greatest contests from the year
each day until we reach the number one spot.
But for now, here is No. 6
on the list:
Peoria got some great pitching as the Javelinas were able to grab a 3-1 victory over the Salt River Rafters. It was a lonely day for the one Reds prospect who played Thursday, but he did his best to make the most of it.
-SS Didi Gregorius batted 2nd and went 1-3 with an RBI (3). He's now hitting .320 during the 2012 AFL year.
Another year and another productive season from All-Star Brandon Phillips. The Redlegs second basemen has been the epitome of consistency throughout his seven years in Cincinnati, and the 2012 campaign was no different. He proved to be the team's most versatile player (by far) after being moved around in the lineup more times than a dish of cranberry sauce on Turkey Day. His...
It was an old-fashioned wild west shootout between the Peoria Javelinas and the Salt River Rafters on Wednesday. The teams combined for 28 hits, 14 a piece, but it was the Rafters who emerged victorious by a score of 12-9 over the Javelinas.
The game saw six of the seven Reds prospects get playing time. It was a bag of mixed results regarding their performances.
With the minor league season being long over, the Reds Organizational All-Stars have been announced by MiLB.com. As you might expect, Billy Hamilton was the main focus. All he did was steal a record 155 bases this season and give Reds fans hope of a true leadoff man which they have lacked for so many years now.
Now, unless you followed closely, what you might not have expected...
