Homer Bailey looked sharp as he struck out five batters in only two innings on Sunday. He faced seven betters and only gave up a single to Lorenzo Cain in the second inning. Bailey was pleased with his outing and admitted that Cain’s hit was probably not the best pitch he could have thrown with a 1-1 count.
In the two appearances he has made this Spring Training, Bailey has pitched three innings and has yet to give up a run. Sunday’s hit by Cain was the first off Bailey so far and he has walked one batter and fanned six. It is super early but any time a man has a whip less than 1.00 you have to love it.
The Reds lost the game to the Royals 8-1 as Tony Cingrani got pinned with the loss.
