Game Wrap Spring Training 2013: Reds 7 Giants 6

A tight pitching duel through 7 innings turned into a slugfest over the final 2 innings with the Reds pulling out a narrow win.  Key Lines:

Andres Torres- 0 for 1, 2 BB, PO/CS.  BA= .308.  Torres has made several baserunning gaffes this spring.  Doesn't do any good to get on base if you get yourself thrown out, Andres.

Pablo Sandoval- 2 for 3, 2B.  BA= .435.  If Pablo can just stay healthy.....

Adam Duvall- 2 for 2, HR(2).  BA= .231.  Duvall shows off his power.

Francisco Peguero- 1 for 4, 2B.  BA= .395.

Ehire Adrianza- 1 for 1, 2B.  BA= .200.

Cole Gillespie- 1 for 1, BB.  BA= .265.

Johnny Monell- 0 for 2, E, PB.  BA= .529.  Monell struggles on defense.

Madison Bumgarner-  5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 1.84.  The lone run came after a Billy Hamilton triple in the top of the first inning scoring on a groundout.

Chad Gaudin- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 2.19.  Gaudin takes another step toward nailing down the long reliever spot on the roster.

Javier Lopez- 0.1 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 0 K.  ERA= 18.90.  Not worried about Lopez who might be working on something.

Ramon Ramirez- 1 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 12.00.  Not looking good for Ramon.

This is a split squad day with a nightcap against the Cleveland Indians with Chris Heston taking the mound for the Giants and the lineup heavy with players who will be leaving for minor league camp after the game.


  1. Ricky O just singled to RF to drive in the G's 1st run in the night cap. It sounds like Hank Greenwald's son is doing the radio brodcast and he sounds alot like his dad..


    1. And Ricky O hit a sacrifice fly to drive in the lead run in the 9th of the nightcap, to make the score SF 3, Cleveland 2.

  2. ac is going to allow casinos to create fantasy leagues....go for it doc

    cant see box score yet, but looks like heston had a very good game

    the dr beat the pr....bambam gonna have his work cut out for him if he wants to get to finals

    monell needs more time behind the plate with the staff


  3. Heston pitched well against the Indians lineup featuring major leaguers like Kipnis, A Cabrera, M Reynolds, J Giambi... Here is his line: 4 IP 1R 1H 1W 1K.
