Chase Silseth cruised through the first two innings today. The Reds did manage to get a couple of hits in the third inning but only one run scored. That’s good since the Angels weren’t scoring through two. Hunter Renfroe walked and Gio Urshela singled their next time up to create a threat. Logan O’Hoppe walked to load the bases with only one out. Kevin Padlo struck out and Jordyn Adams hit a fly ball out to end the inning.
In the fourth inning the wheels came off a little bit. Well, I guess it was more than just a little bit. Wil Myers homered to make it 2-0 Reds. Jake Fraley doubled. Kevin Newman singled to score Fraley. 3-0 Reds. TJ Friedl walked and Spencer Steer doubled. 5-0 Reds. Chad Pinder doubled to score Steer. 6-0 Reds. Jonathan India singled to score Pinder. 7-0 Reds. Cam Vieaux replaced Silseth on the mound with Myers at the plate again. He just hit a single this time to score Jonathan India. 8-0 Reds. Tyler Stephenson singled to drive in Wil Myers. 9-0 Reds. Fraley struck out mercifully. I think it’s safe to say this was a very embarrassing inning!
The Angels had a pretty disappointing top of the fifth inning. There was a single and a double but there was a double play and a strikeout. In the bottom of the fifth, Kevin Newman singled, Spencer Steer walked, and Jonathan India singled to make it 10-0 Reds.
Exxon Valdez came in and had a pretty decent seventh inning but the hit parade resumed in the eighth inning. Matt Reynolds and Will Benson both singled. Luckily there was no more scoring.
I don’t have any highlights to show you. At least David Fletcher had a multi-hit game.

Ohviously we will lose 132 games and get shut out 85 times and it will all be because Arte is cheap. Ohtani was clearly sure to stay, but then this happened, so he will light his locker on fire as the seasons’ last game ends and run from the Big A crying rage tears. Oh ner! Now we don’t even have a shot at overpaying him to be over 30! Me Gird!
Silseth pretty much punched his ticket to SLC today, but that’s cool, I still think he’s gonna be good. Plenty of depth guys look strong. If most of these dudes accept assignment to AAA then SLC may be fun to watch. I wonder if Mr Red is in the best shape of his life yet. He has the opening day parade coming up THEN he’s gonna have to defend Ms. Red from Mr Met fairly soon. It’s a must win.
Given Arte’s interview this weekend, we are totally not signing Ohtani. I don’t understand why we’re all so desperate to take a our high maintenance girlfriend we know is going to dump us on one last expensive vacation before she leaves us. Just so we don’t have to look ourselves in the mirror and admit it’s likely over…. then take the cash we would have spent on her and go buy a friggin Seadoo.
Let the “Jurst bercaws HEEEE hasnut talked contract wid Ohatni guy done mean no one talkin contract wid Ohtani hurr deeeer durr cope seeth….” talk begin. Cause yeah, if we were anywhere close to signing the guy for 500M, even in the next off season, a sure sign of that would be our owner NOT having talked to him. We should have traded him last July.
If my name is Griffin Canning I am happy today.
He’s got the experience, the track record, and the spring performance to win the job.
Just ready to see this team at full strength.
We’ll if your name isn’t Griffin Canning you certainly sound like his agent
Looks like I picked a good game to miss ha ha.
I recorded the game during work yesterday (on MLB Network delayed broadcast).
I started to watch it at night, but mercifully, they spoiled the game by showing the final results along the ticker at the bottom. I was in the 1st inning but said “nope, I’ll skip this one” and deleted it.
