The Braves handed the half of the squad that made the trip to Lake Buena Vista this afternoon a moderately less humiliating defeat than the other half suffered at the hands of the Pirates. For crying out loud people: the Reds hardly have one fieldable team: you can't really expect them to put together two.
Dave Williams got the start and allowed eight runs, all earned, on 10 hits through 3 1/3 innings of work.
Jake Robbins held the Braves scoreless despite two hits during his 2/3 of an inning. Todd Coffey and Ryan Wagner each also contributed scoreless innings. Brian Shackelford gave up the other two runs on two hits in two innings.
Dewayne Wise hit yet another home run and contributed two of the Reds RBI today. Encarnació also contributed two. Chris Denorfia and Andy Abad each contributed one.
The loss brings the Reds' record to 10-8. Tomorrow the Reds host the Phillies in Sarasota at 1:05 p.m.
