Cozart extends hit-streak to 6 games (7 for 21 .333).
Broxton: 29 pitches/20 strikes. ERA now 0.44. 20.2 IN, 8 H, 1 ER, 6 BB, 15 K.
Chapman: 2 K in 9th, 10th save…has retired 22 batters in a row.
Season: Opponents 8 for 66 (.121) vs Broxton, 4 for 44 (.090) vs Chapman. Combined: 12 for 110 (.109).

All good stats however no save for Chapman last night. Still at 9 saves.

Thanks.

Red’s future LFer?
LF Jesse Winker: 3-for-3, 4 R, 2 HR, 6 RBIs, 2 BB, 1 SB for High-A Bakersfield.
3rd in CAL w/ .423 OBP & .576 SLG.

He still needs another full year in the minors probably at AAA. Probably right about where BHam should have spent this year too. If only the Reds could have signed Choo to a 1 year contract. Then again Choo is not off to a great year and his stats are only slightly better than BHam’s. But looking at his stats so far his bat skills are actually slightly better than Joey Votto’s at the same time period. That is why we don’t want to rush this guy. When the second half of the minor league season starts up I fully expect this guy AA Pensacola. Next year he should be the starting LF for AAA Bats. So who plays LF next year for the Reds? I”m guessing Lutz,Schumaker combination.

Simon is the find of the year. I suspect that Price had something to do with his
reversal of fortunes. Simon isn’t OK, he’s not just GOOD…he looks like a #1 or #2
SP! Great to see. Now, the only question is whether Cingrani will be sent to the BP or to AAA.

I think Cingrani needs to go to Louisville to work on his other pitches. Plus if someone gets injured on our staff, we won’t need to stretch Cingrani back out because he is in the pen.

REDS Win….. look at these reds stats :

Cannot consistently win without better offense……

We won the game so no room for complaining from me. I don’t care if we are dead last in every offensive stat as long as we find ways to win games.

Phillips iffy…injured right index finger, suffered earlier in the game fielding a grounder;
gripping the bat is difficult.
