Reds provide fireworks on a rainy night

St. Louis got shelled by the Reds 10-3.  Kip Wells got blasted, giving up 8 runs on 9 hits including 3 HRs and walked 3 in 4.2 innings.  In his last two starts, Wells has given up 11 runs in 15 innings.  Rolen, Spiezio, and Yadi had 2 hits a piece, accounting for 6 of the Cards 10 hits.  Before the game, the Reds were hitting .226 as a team, worst in the league.   Today, Looper (3-1) matches up against Bronson Arroyo (0-2).  

I know these guys are professionals and all, but it just seemed like this was another game where this team mailed it in.  I just don’t get it. 

Carpenter had a long toss/bullpen session Tuesday afternoon, here is what Derrick Gould has to say on the session.  The Post has a nice story about Josh Hamilton.  I am sorry, but I have to root for the guy.

Memphis came up with 3 in the bottom of the ninth to defeat Omaha (Kansas City) 8-7.  Tagg Bozied had a pinch hit single to score two and tie the game 7-7.  Rico Washington singled in Travis Hanson to score the winning run.  Rick Ankiel hit his seventh HR of the season, a 2 run shot.  Jolbert Cabrera, Rico Washington, and Edgar V. Gonzalez each had 2 hits.  Ryan Ludwick added a hit and and RBI.  Kelvin Jimenez got the win pitching a perfect ninth.  His ERA now stands at 1.59.  Matt Ginter got the start and got hammered, giving up 5 runs on 13 hits in 4.2 innings. 

Springfield got rained out.

Palm Beach beat Daytona (Cubs) 3-0.  Allen Craig continues to be on fire, going 2-4 with an RBI.  Trey Hearne was spectacular, giving up only 3 hits and striking out 6 in 7 innings.  Luke Gregorson struck out 2 in his only inning of work.  Converted catcher Jason Motte got the save, his third of the season.  Here is a nice article about Motte transition from behind the plate.  Former Notre Dame wideout Jeff Samardzia got the start for Daytona, he went 5.1 innings, giving up 3 runs (only 1 earned) on 5 hits, walking 3 and striking out 4.

The Swing fell to Fort Wayne (San Diego) 1-0.  D0novan Solano had the only hit for Quad Cities.  Elvis Hernandez was the hard lucker loser going 2.1 innings, giving up 1 run on 3 hits and striking 2.  P.J. Walters got the start for the Swing, he went 5 innings, gave up only 1 hit,  and struck out 3.  It was by far Walters best start of the season but he has nothing to show for it.

Southeast fell to Memphis 12-6 on a wet night at Capaha.  The two teams play again today starting at 3pm.
