Hunter Green and Reds don’t let loose

The Cincinnati Reds made a rarity in baseball Sunday by losing despite conceding no goals.

Hunter Green, the right rookie, hit nine hits in seven rounds without allowing a hit. His counterpart, Pirates veteran Jose Quintana, nearly matched him, allowing only three hits and one walk in seven rounds before turning the bout to the Pittsburgh Bullpen.

Even though Greene’s field count crossed 100, Reds manager David Bell allowed him to start in the bottom of the eighth inning in pursuit of a no-batting in Pittsburgh. Greene caused the globe to pop out of the ground, but then issued walking trails to Rodolfo Castro and Michael Perez. After seven rounds and thirds, five walks and 118 throws, Greene was finally drawn.

Right-handed Art Warren walked another racket to load the bases, and Ke’Bryan Hayes decided to pick the fielders to lead in the game’s only round and give Greene a hard luck loss. It was only the sixth time in the modern baseball era that a team had lost without an injury, and the first time that had happened since 2008.

“It was great to get a different result, but that’s what it is,” Green told reporters after the match.

He also said he got tired as the game went on.

But again, there’s the mental part of: ‘I’m fine. “I’m not tired,” he said.

Unfortunately for Greene, Warren and the Reds, Sunday’s achievement will not be recorded as no hitter. In 1991, Major League Baseball changed the definition of non-hit, requiring a team to finish at least nine innings in a full game, thus eliminating both uninjured losses, as well as many losses shortened by rain. By the same rule, Madison Bumgarner starts in 2021, as it was No hits allowed in a full game winwas not registered as a no-hitter because he came in a seven-game match as part of the MLB double rules that season.

Sunday’s defeat was Cincinnati’s last (9-26), a game over 10 games from the top spot in the National Central League. the reds’ 3-19 starts with a running difference of minus 65 It was worse than both the 2003 Tigers, who finished 119 losses, and the 1962 Mets, who lost 120, although they’ve been more competitive lately with six wins in their past 10 matches.

However, the match should have been encouraging for the Reds and Green, who had a 7.62 ERA and allowed 11 times in 26 rounds to enter Sunday’s game. But it’s sure to come in some criticism because a total of 118 throws is the maximum bowler is allowed to throw this season, which contrasts sharply with the way other teams have approached bowlers. The Dodgers, in particular, pulled Clayton Kershaw After seven full runs Because the veteran left-hander had 80 pitches on a chilly Minnesota afternoon and they have designs in the postseason.

Bell said there was a chance he would have let Greene back into ninth if he hadn’t gotten into trouble.

“Looking at it now, I think it would have been easy for him to get back there for the ninth time,” Bell said. “But I think there was an opportunity to do that.”

The Reds Greene, with the second overall selection in the 2017 draft, picked one place behind Royce Lewis, the short-handed player who made his debut for the Twins this month. With a fast ball that could touch triple digits and strong hitting skills at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California, Green covered an issue of Sports Illustrated, described as “the stellar needs of baseball.” He had some residents think he could be a two-way player as a pro.

Greene hit some in the lower levels of the mansion but He finally gave up on her, avoiding the paths taken by Shohei Ohtani and Michael Lorenzen. After undergoing Tommy John’s surgery in 2019 and the minor league season canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, Green earned a 3.30 ERA across Class AA and AAA last year. It ranks as one of the top 25 odds, according to MLB.com.
