louisville

Result: Lehigh Valley 7, Louisville 3

Starting Pitcher: Tim Adleman, RHP – 5 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Top Hitter: Hernan Iribarren, RF – 2-for-4, 2 RBI

Other Notable Performers:

Carlos Triunfel, SS – 3-for-4, 2 2B, 2 R

Game Notes: Tim Adleman made his second rehab start with Louisville, and had one of his worst starts of the season. The good news, he limited the damage to four runs over five innings while allowing 10 hits.

The hit were the most that Adleman has allowed in Triple-A this season in seven starts, and the four runs were the second most that he has allowed over that span. Adleman did get his five innings and 75 pitches under his belt though.

Though Hernan Iribarren did not hit a home run for the fourth straight game, he did extend his current hit streak to 15 games. Iribarren is hitting a whopping .486 over the last 10 games.

Jesse Winker extended his seven game hit streak with a pair of singles in the contest and Carlos Triunfel added two doubles.

pensacola

Result: Pensacola 3, Biloxi 0

Starting Pitcher: Rookie Davis, RHP – 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

Top Hitter: Phillip Ervin, LF – 1-for-3, 3B, BB

Other Notable Performers:

Sebastian Elizalde, RF – 1-for-4, R

Eric Jagielo, 1B – 1-for-3

Game Notes: Rookie Davis combined his start last time out and an even better start on Thursday night to build one of his best stretches since joining the Reds organization.

Davis struck out two in the first inning, around a single, and caught stealing. He also allowed another single in the second, but got a double play. Davis sat down Biloxi in order, with three ground outs in the third. After another strikeout, single, and double play, Davis had still faced just the minimum through four innings.

After a single to lead off the fifth, that string was broken. However, Davis added a ground out, strike out, and fly out to end his day. It was a short day though, as Davis threw just 57 pitches.

Davis was struck by a bouncing comebacker in the fourth inning that drew some flesh on his left hand or wrist. Davis stayed in the game, but was in some pain at the time.

Abel De Los Santos worked two scoreless innings in his Reds system debut after being claimed on waivers from Washington this week.

Pensacola was only able to pick up four hits in the game, but they were well timed. Mixed with four walks, they were able to get the base runners needed.

Eric Jagielo picked up a hit in his third straight game, and has hits in nine of his last 12 games for Pensacola.

Other Notable Performers:

Blake Trahan – 2-for-5, R

Game Notes: Tejay Antone continued one of his strongest stretches of the season on Thursday night.

Working into the seventh inning for the third time in four starts and the fourth time in his last seven outings, Antone has allowed two or less earned runs in each of those.

Angelo Gumbs had an 11-game hit streak broken on Tuesday, but bounced back on Thursday night with two hits and a home run.

Other Notable Performers:

Chris Okey, C – 1-for-3, 2B, R, SB

Mitch Piatnik, CF – 1-for-4, R

Game Notes:  Nick Senzel continued to tear up pitching in Low-A with Dayton, as he added his second professional home run and drove in three runs. In his last 10 games, Senzel is hitting .286 and has a homer in two of his last three games.

After a slow start to his Low-A career, Chris Okey now has hits in five of his last six games. Over that stretch, Okey has four extra base hits with his double on Thursday night.

However, outside of Senzel and Okey, Dayton was only able to pick up two hits and the pitching was not able to hold up.

Ty Boyles struggled again on Thursday night, lasting just 3.2 innings, while tossing 92 pitches in that span.

Cassidy Brown, C – 2-for-3, 2R

Daniel Sweet, DH – 1-for-4, 3B, R, RBI

Game Notes:  Scott Moss worked into the fifth inning for the first time in his pro career and showcased what the Reds saw in him to make him a top-five round draft pick on Thursday night.

Moss allowed just three base runners, and struck out four through 4.2 innings, going just one over the minimum. In his third start, it was the first time that Moss lasted past the second inning.

Alex Webb tossed 2.1 innings of scoreless relief as well in his fourth appearance. Webb has now allowed just seven hits and run over 7.1 innings, while striking out seven.

Billings also lost 4-3 in the completion of a game suspended on July 15.
