    Reds 2, Arcadia 0Pitching and fielding were the orders of the day in a seven-inning squeaker. Reds pitchers JT McDonnell (three innings) and JP Shohfi (four innings) combined for a one-hit shutout, fanning nine against a single walk.The only runs came on RBI singles by Michael Chan, who drove in Andrew Tsangeos on an infield hit in the second inning, and Shohfi, who drove in Brian Lee on a line drive to right in the third inning.The only threat from Arcadia came in the bottom of the seventh inning, when they had runners at second and third bases with no outs. On a dribbler back to the box, the Reds turned a timely double play to prevent a run from scoring. With two outs, runners on first and third bases and the count full, Shohfi then nailed down the Reds’ sixth victory in a row with a strikeout.

    East Altadena 9, Reds 4After two innings of play, the Reds were faced with a 6-0 deficit. Unfazed, they had battled back to within two in the top of the sixth inning behind the solid relief pitching of Brian Lee.With two outs, one run already in, and the bases loaded, Jamie Kreindler flared an almost certain run-scoring single into short right field, but it was reeled-in with a spectacular leaping catch by the second baseman, preventing a rally. East Altadena added three more runs in the bottom of the frame.The Reds’ attack was led by JP Shohfi (3-4, 2 RBI), with strong performances from Alex Lunine (2-3, 1 RBI), Tommy Hannan (2-3) and Taylor Hoffman (1 run and 1 RBI).

    Reds 9, Red Sox 6The Reds improved to a division-leading 8-2 record, jumping out to a 9-0 lead after just two innings of play.The Red Sox came scrapping back in thethird inning with four runs of their own, but starter JT McDonnell and reliever JP Shohfi held the Sox at bay in the fourth and fifth innings, allowing just one hit and fanning four.But in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Sox – with one out, two runs in, a runner on third base, and the tying run on deck – were closing in fast. Shohfi then cowboyed up and struck out two in a row to seal the victory, freezing the final batter with a 3-2 heater at the letters. The Reds’ offense was spearheaded by Shofi (2-2, 2 RBI, 2 runs), and by Alex Lunine (2-3, 3 RBI).

    Mets 7, Marlins 6 It was first baseman Cole Giles with a big hit, a run scored, and nifty play in the field.

Third baseman Clay Cribbs snuffed a rally and continued his superb batting prowess. Max Gluck set the hook and centerfielder Luke Aloe reeled them in. Pitcher Deane Foley cheated. He used a harpoon of an arm to paralyze the opposition. Pitcher and first baseman Jack Lovelock was three for three and always in the chair. Steady handed Aidan Hedman threw strikes and approached the bridge with confidence. The captain didn’t know what to do. Thank goodness that he had a capable first mate (Eddie Lovelock), and second mate (Sean Hedman), and many spotters (our wonderful parents and grandparents).

    Mets 17, Nationals 7Starting pitcher Cole Cribbs led the way with heat over the dish and a three run double.

    Padres 8, Mets 5The Padres got off to a hot start, thanks to extra base hits by Matthew Kwok (double), Owen Grannis (triple) and Sam Howell (double, home run).
