MLB Diamondbacks VS Cincinnati Reds

Today’s matchup featured Dbacks Wade Miley vs Reds Johnny Cueto in a game where Johnny Cueto pitched 7 innings and gave up 2 runs scored. Wade Miley would go 7 innings giving up 3 runs on 6 hits. Wade Miley struggled in the first couple innings in keeping the ball down in the zone, every time he left one up the Reds would make him pay for it. Miley threw 54 pitches in the first 2 innings and ran up his pitch count but settled in pitching another 53 innings over his last 5 innings. Gerardo Parra had a 2 hit night along with  rookie Ryan Wheeler who went 2 for 3 on the day. Johnny Cueto improves to 17-6 on the year as Aroldis Chapmanrecorded his 33rd save and his 25th save in a row.

Rookie Patrick Corbin

Tonight the Dbacks throw rookie Patrick Corbin who has brought some life to this pitching staff over the past couple weeks. A young fresh pitcher with his 6th straight start looks to even this series up. Mat Latos who is 10-4 toes the slab for the Reds and looks to get back to his winning ways after his last start.

AAA Reno Aces vs Fresno Grizzlies

The Reno Aces take the Fresno Grizzlies deep in extra innings for the 2nd night in a row. Trevor Bauer started on the mound for the Reno Aces and lasted 6 innings and gave up 2 runs on 5 hits. Trevor allowed one run when Fresno pitcher Boof Bonser hit a home run to deep center field, a pitch Bauer wishes he had back. I was very impressed with Bauer’s strength during his warm ups and on the mound. I sat down by the bullpen to watch his warm up routing and long toss and actually caught one of his long toss balls that was slightly thrown over Jensen Lewis into the seats. As he got loose he was stretched out from right field to the left field foul pole throwing 100 yards or so before slowly shortening his depth till at 60′. Talking with Mike Parrott the Aces pitching coach before the game he said “Bauer has actually shorten up his long toss routine a little lately & that he used to throw foul pole to foul pole.” Parrott said “I get tired just watching his routine” it does help that he is 21 years old.

AA Mobil Baybears vs Tennessee Smokies

The Baybears close this series with the Smokies with a loss in extra innings.  The Baybears are without one of their top offensive producers in Brent Clevlen who was called up to AAA Reno to replace an injured Adam Eaton who is on the 7 day DL. The Baybears take this game into the 10th inning and would loose the game on a walk off solo home run by Logan Watkins. This walk off home run would mark the second Dback farm team to loose in extra innings tonight with a walk off home run. Jonathan Griffin continues to Rake the ball going 3 for 5 with a RBI and a HR. Even Frey with a 2 hit night as well. ALL GAMES FOR TOMORROW HAVE BEEN POSTPONED DO TO THE HURRICANE ISAAC NEAR THE MOBILE AREA UNTIL FRIDAY AUGUST 31st.

A Viaslia Rawhide vs  Bakersfield

Blaine Howell of the Bakersfield Blaze gets the win in this matchup after Stalin Gerson gets pulled after 4 innings and 6 runs scored. Victor Capellan would get the loss for the Rawhide after he takes over in the 7th giving up 4 runs on 4 hits. The Blaze win this game 10-6 on the bats of Steve Selsky, Juan Duran, and Dominic D’Anna who all collect 3 hits a piece and account for 5 RBI’s.
