Another outing for Jake this time the boys are in Cincinnati to play the Reds. Jake is coming off the terrible outing in New York with the Mets, I still have not had the courage to watch. It is a series sweep game, fingers crossed. Jake needs a good start, he has given up too many hits but once he can settle down he would be good.
**Bottom of 1st – Jake’s first pitch is a ball. Made it through that inning with no damage.
**Top of 2nd – Belt with a solo homer for a 1 to 0 Giants lead.Brown with a single to right. Tomlinson with a single, Jake struck out.
**Bottom of 2nd – Reds with their own solo shot for a 1 all ball game. Reds just took Jake for another home run with a man on, its a 3 to 1 Reds lead. Jake just issues another walk. Jake just gave up another home run, that was 3 in the inning. 5 to 1 Reds lead. (3 home runs and a double)
**Bottom of 3rd – here comes the disaster again, it was the bottom of 3rd that was the horror inning for Jake and I have a feeling it’s coming again. RBI single and it’s 6 to 1. Error on belt at first and everyone is safe.
**Top of 4th and Conor Gillaspie with a home run for a 6 to 2 score
**Bottom of 4th – Jake with 5 strikeouts,
**Bottom of 6th and Jake is at 90 pitches. Another home run, just saw Jake yell at himself. Reds – 7 and Giants 2
***The Giants add 1 more in the top of the 7th and one more in the top of the 9th for a Reds – 7 and Giants – 4 loss.
Jakes numbers for the day; 6 inning worked, with 8 hits allowed with 7 runs, 1 walk, with 8 strike outs, and 4 home runs allowed. His ERA is back up to 9.00
We should see Jake for the series with the Toronto Blue Jays.
