Giants Rally to Edge Pelicans at Indian School Park
Diego Rincones blasted a two-run HR in the 1st inning and an RBI double in the 3rd, and then with their team trailing by a run with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Fabian Pena and Dalton Combs belted back-to-back RBI doubles for the walk-off victory, as the San Jose Giants (Hi-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants) rallied to edge the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs Hi-A affiliate) 5-4 on Field #1, and Luis Vazquez drilled a two-run single, walked, and stole a base for the Cubs, and Marco Luciano rifled a two-run double for the Greenjackets, as the South Bend Cubs (Lo-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) and Augusta Greenjackets (Giants Lo-A affiliate) played to a 3-3 tie on Field #2, in Cactus League Minor League Spring Training game action Wednesday afternoon at Indian School Park in Scottsdale, AZ.
Cole Roederer (who smacked a HR in the Cactus League MLB game at Sloan Park on Tuesday) tripled, singled, walked, and scored two runs for the Pelicans in a losing cause on Field #1.

Reds just lost in tough fashion to the Royals. Down 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, one out and rap into a 5-4-3 dp to end it.

So we keep Phegley ostensibly to get Caratini into lineup as DH and have a different backup C so we don't get caught in the exact situation we knowingly and avoidably put ourselves in tonight?

this game is now "bryant watch"...also will 4 runs be enough for kimbrel? gotta imagine he's due to get work even if it's not a save situation.

Cleveland Game 2: KB (LF), Rizzo, Javy, Willson, Happ, JHey, Bote (3B), Caratini (DH), Kipnis
Schwarber was in initial lineup but removed due to a knee contusion - I imagine a result of the hard breaking ball which popped him in the knee last night.

Rea has been a very nice surprise so far. Hopefully he can keep it up this year and going forward. We have a few more years of team control.

Rea bringing the heat 94-96 - and retires the heart of the Indians lineup in order. He's looked impressive in his two appearances.

Oliver Perez alone is worth the price of admission - more kinds of "deliveries" than Baskin-Robbins has flavors.
