The Reds defeated the Pirates on Thursday by a score of 6-1 in McKechnie Park in Bradenton. The game was delayed and later called on account of rain.
Dave Williams got the start against the team he so recently called home. Williams gave up one run on two hits in his three innings of work to get the win. He was limited to just three innings when the rain rolled in and delayed the game for 38 minutes.
Ryan Wagner, Rick White, and Jung Keun Bong each contributed a scoreless inning. Justin Germano allowed a run in his two innings.
Two of the Reds runs can be attributed to Tony Womack, who hit a two-run home run in the fourth. Womack has been freaking on fire lately. Rumors of being available for trade must agree with him. The other four Reds runs were thanks to Brian Buchanan. Rumors of being a long shot must agree with him.
The win brought the Reds' record to 14-10. The Reds would travel to St. Petersburg to take on the Devil Rays (or is it just Rays now?) on Friday.
