The first time this year we get a real game to talk about since last September. Here is how the Reds minor leaguers performed in the first game of the spring:

  • Billy Hamilton went 0-2 with a walk and a steal.
  • Chris Nelson went 0-1 with a sac fly.
  • Neftali Soto went 1-2.
  • Kristopher Negron went 0-2.
  • Tucker Barnhart went 0-2 with a walk and an RBI.
  • Donald Lutz went 1-2 with a triple and 2 RBI.
  • Chad Rogers threw 2 hitless innings with a walk and a strikeout.
  • Tim Crabbe allowed 2 runs in an inning with 2 walks.
  • Curtis Partch was charged with an unearned run in an inning of work.
  • Lee Hyde threw a hitless inning with a walk and a strikeout.
  • Pedro Beato threw a perfect inning with a strikeout.
  • Trevor Bell threw a perfect inning with a strikeout.

Game Notes

Billy Hamilton walked on 10 pitches in his first plate appearance and proceeded to steal second and advance to third on the throw that got away from the catcher and went into center. Neftali Soto and Donald Lutz both smoked a ball with Soto almost hitting the pitcher on a comebacker single and Lutz lacing a triple into the gap. Chad Rogers looked good in his two innings of work. Curtis Partch showed a consistent breaking ball, something that evaded him at times last year. Hyde, Beato and Bell all looked good in their inning of work to finish out the game.
