Reds Spring Training Game Review – 3/11/17 Doug Gray March 11, 2017 7 Comments The Cincinnati Reds played a set of games today. They sent two groups on the road this afternoon, one to take on Seattle and the other to take on San Francisco. Reds vs Mariners The Reds fell 7-6 to the Mariners on Saturday afternoon. You can see the entire box score here. This game was available on MLB.tv and thankfully so. Aristides Aquino provided us with some fireworks early on as he absolutely crushed a home run. Your browser does not support iframes. That ball reportedly landed halfway back on the pavilion canopy. Aquino also singled in another at-bat, going 2-4 on the day. Jesse Winker went 2-3 on the day with an RBI triple that he laced into the right field corner. Brandon Dixon took over at second base for Jose Peraza and crushed a solo home run in a 1-2 effort on the day. Rob Brantly went 1-2 after taking over for Joey Votto at first base. Chad Wallach went 1-1, taking over behind the plate for Stuart Turner late in the game. On the mound there weren’t many minor leaguers that got action in the game. Rob Wooten threw a perfect inning after taking over for Brandon Finnegan. Evan Mitchell followed Blake Wood and threw a perfect inning with two strikeouts. Mitchell has yet to allow a run this spring. Alejandro Chacin walked and struck out a batter in 0.2 innings of work. Reds vs. Giants The reds fell just short against the Giants on Saturday afternoon, falling 9-7. You can see the entire box score for the game here. Tony Renda continued a strong start to his spring by going 2-3 with an RBI, steal and 2 runs scored. Hernan Iribarren went 1-2 with a walk, getting the start at second. T.J. Friedl took over in center for Billy Hamilton and homered in his only plate appearance. Gavin LaValley, Jose Siri, Taylor Trammell, Angelo Gumbs, Juan Perez, Chris Okey and Alfredo Rodriguez also saw playing time later in the game, but none of them were able to get a hit. On the mound it was a tough day for the entire staff. After Scott Feldman gave up four runs in 3.1 innings the game went to Nefi Ogando. He allowed a run in 1.2 innings with two hits and two walks. Tyler Mahle came on after that and allowed two runs in 2.0 innings with a walk and two strikeouts. Austin Brice threw the final inning for the Reds and allowed two runs in an inning of work with two walks. 7 Responses Todd March 11, 2017 I was at the Scottsdale game and Friedl was impressive with his bat speed and looked very comfortable in center. I’m trying to subdue my enthusiasm – but the struggle is real. MK March 11, 2017 Those Scottsdale tickets are expensive aren’t they? MuddyCleats March 11, 2017 Good 2 hear; maybe Reds got a steal w/ this guy? Can he pitch :) ? Hoyce March 12, 2017 Disco has set back. Prob going on DL to start season. Saw this coming from a mile away. Reds PR is either full of BS. Or the Drs are flat out worthless. Doug Gray March 12, 2017 Or, medicine isn’t an exact science and things happen. Ryan March 12, 2017 Any updates on Senzel’s injury? Just what we need, another wrist injury for a top position player prospect. Doug Gray March 12, 2017 It’s all in the article about Senzel – but it appears he’s fine. Multiple scans came back clean.
