The Reds faithful would get a real treat today as they would see one of the best pitched games by both teams that I have ever witnessed.
Gott and Soto put up zeros all night long matching each other inning by inning. The Giants would come close to scoring in only 2 innings. In the 7 the Giants would get their first hit as Davis leads off the inning with a single, Brown strikes-out Driessen draws a walk and with runners on 1st and 2nd Trevino bounces in a 6-4-3 double play. They would also get close in the 9th as Wellman leads off with single, Leonard strikes-out, Davis bounces into a 5-4 FC and Brown walks putting runners at 1st and 2nd. Soto gets Driessen to bounce one right back to the mound to end the threat.
The Giants almost had a couple runs in the 2nd as Venable leads off with a single, Esasky strikes-out, Concepcion doubles and Venable holds at 3rd, Gott then gets Oester to popout to Uribe and Van Gorder strikes-out.
In the 9th the Reds get the lone run of the game Bell leads off with a double and would come around to score when Parker pits one the right-fielders head for a double.
Soto only give up 2 hits and strikes-out 12 and improves to 4-0.
The Final Score 1-0 Reds
