layoffsHistory/Hall of FameGame RecapsDingers doom Matt Harvey as Brewers pound Reds 7-0New Jim Bunning Jersey ,15commentsOof.ByWick Terrell@wickterrellSep 19, 2018, 10:22pm EDTShareTweetShareShareDingers doom Matt Harvey as Brewers pound Reds 7-0Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsThe Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the GameScooter Gennett picked up a single and a pair of walks, the former pumping his season average up to .317 on the season. The Cincinnati Reds 2B currently sits just a few points behind opponent Christian Yelich in the race for the NL batting title as things stand, as the talented Milwaukee Brewers OF lays claim to a .319 average after play tonight.Still, that’s some impressive work from Scooter against his former team, especially when every other bat in the lineup fell completely silent on the night.Honorable Mentions are due to: Phil Ervin, who singled and scored; and Matt Wisler, who looked awfully impressive in 1.2 IP of scoreless, hitless work (that included 2 Ks).Key PlaysMilwaukee got the scoring started in the Bottom of the 1st after - you guessed it - Yelich doubled and later scored on a Jesus Aguilar single. Reds trailed, 1-0.It was Aguilar again putting the finishing touches on a thump of the Reds in the Bottom of the 3rd, as he backed up a pair of defensive brainfarts by the Reds with a towering opposite-field dinger of the 3-run variety off Matt Harvey that left the Reds behind Jim Thome Jersey , 4-0.It was a similar story against Harvey in the Bottom of the 6th, as Jim Riggleman tried and tried to get his starter through the inning as he was approaching 100 pitches. Domingo Santana “tripled” on a ball that fell in between Billy Hamilton and Scott Schebler in CF as both pulled up rather than collide, and Mike Moustakas was then walked to set up a potential double play with 1-out. Manny Pina then stepped to the plate, fouled off pitch after pitch, and as Harvey’s total number of pitches crossed the 100 mark, Pina eventually bashed a monster 3-run dinger on the 13th (I believe) pitch of the PA to end Harvey’s night and put Cincinnati in an insurmountable 7-0 hole.Tony GraphaninoSource: FanGraphsOther NotesHarvey didn’t pitch too poorly, honestly, and got next to no help from both his defense and his manager. His final line: 5.1 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 2 BB, 5 K on 104 pitches.The Reds head to Miami http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey , and they’ll start a four game weekend series that means basically nothing against the Marlins on Thursday at 7:10 PM ET. Cody Reed will toe the rubber for the Reds against [insert pitcher for Miami you’ve never heard of].Tunes. TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Brad Ausmus will absolutely get in on the action during his first spring training as Angels manager. He has already caught a couple of bullpens and plans to jump right into more drills along the way to help his players prepare for a fresh season.“I get involved pretty good,” he said. “You might see me standing at a position with a glove on, covering a base or taking groundballs. That will happen.”Ausmus got back behind the plate to catch throwing sessions by Trevor Cahill and Matt Harvey at the Tempe Diablo Stadium complex.“It’s something I like to do. I did it in Detroit,” Ausmus said. “My frame of reference catching all those years was seeing a pitcher from that angle. It’s easier for me to see something in the delivery or the movement of the pitch from that as opposed to from the side or behind.”So, how’d they look?“Good. Think I’d tell you otherwise?” he said with a smile.Cahill figured Ausmus could still catch, then the right-hander let it rip to his manager with 15 two-seam fastballs away. He had never pitched to his manager previously.“I remember watching him growing up,” Cahill said Thursday. “Then he actually got his stuff on, and I was like, ‘Hey, he’s going to do it, let’s do it.'”The 49-year-old Ausmus Odubel Herrera Jersey , who played 18 major league seasons, is charged with the task of getting the Angels back to the playoffs after a four-year absence and eight out of nine years without a postseason berth. Los Angeles got swept by the Royals in the 2014 AL Division Series.Any pressure as the franchise’s first new manager in nearly two decades with Mike Scioscia’s departure? Scioscia managed 19 major league seasons, wound up with 1,650 career victories and led the wild-card Angels to a World Series title in 2002.“I was in a similar situation in Detroit replacing Jim Leyland. Jim hadn’t been there as long as Sosh was here, but the bottom line is I’ve got to be me and I’ve got to run the camp the way I think the camp should be run,” Ausmus said. “Anything other than that would be seen as kind of fake by the players. So I’m just going to be me. Sosh obviously had a tremendous managerial career, probably of the likes that we will not see again in modern baseball unless something changes. But I can’t be Mike Scioscia.”Not that Ausmus is revealing how he might be different or details about how he will operate spring training.He insists most things aren’t that different from anywhere else around baseball at this time of year.“If you were to take a drone and fly it over all 30 teams, camps would look generally the same. We cover a lot of the same basics, the fundamentals that need to be covered. So I don’t know that I would point to anything specific and even if I knew of some specific things, I probably wouldn’t tell you. I feel like that’s state secrets. But you won’t notice much of a difference.”It helps that Ausmus is already familiar with his roster. He spent last season as special assistant to general manager Billy Eppler following four years as Tigers manager. Ausmus had a 314-342 record in Detroit.“Just in terms of knowing the guys, with a new manager,” he said. “When I got hired in Detroit I came in and the vast majority of players I was meeting for the first time in spring training. There was a handful I met ahead of time. But the vast majority other than talking to on the phone I hadn’t seen or spoken to. These guys Jorge Alfaro Jersey , going all the way down to the minor leagues because I traveled through the minor leagues as well, they’ve at least seen me. And a lot of them I’ve had conversations with, especially at the big league level where I spent most of my year.”His eyes up, Ausmus watches batting practice and takes in other drills early on while also monitoring the action to make sure his players don’t push too hard too soon.Oh, and off the diamond, Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani already made a keen observation.“He’s a very good-looking guy,” Ohtani said, then quickly added, “of course Scioscia was good looking, too.”
