All right, now this is the kind of game I like to see. The scrubs the Reds sent out to Fort Myers actually scored one fewer run than their counterparts in Sarasota, but also allowed 16 fewer and came out of the afternoon with a big win.
Again with the bullets:
- Starting pitcher Michael Gosling shut the Twins out over three innings of work. He allowed three hits and struck out a batter.
- Official team hottie Jason Standridge also shut out the twins in his inning of work. He allowed one walk.
- Edwin Encarnación, the closest thing resembling a starter on this trip, launched a two-run home run in the first inning to get the scoring going for the Reds. Encarnación wasn't done: he hit another homer in the sixth. He was 3-for-4 on the day.
- Starting for the Twins was Brad Radke. Do you think they call him Bradke?
Clearly there's a lot more to the game than that. You can check out the box score here.
Less than an hour now until Aaron Harang takes on the Yankees. Go Reds!
