ST Game 21: Reds 6, Rockies 10

W: Jimenez (2-0) L: Harang (1-2)


Aaron Harang started for the Cincinnati Reds (9-10-2) and had a worse day than the Roman Catholic church. Okay, maybe not that bad.

It was ugly out there, though. Harang was originally scheduled to go for 6 innings in the continuing Spring Training quest to increase his durability. Instead, he lasted 2 2/3 and allowed 7 runs. Ouch.

The Reds lost, of course. But the offense did show life again. Jonny Gomes and Laynce Nix both homered as they continue to fight to make the team. And although Joey Votto didn’t get a hit, he did walk in a run when the bases were loaded. Votto had two walks on the day, so maybe his judgment of pitches is close to being ready for opening day.
