After an awful start, Andrew Lambo has gone 7-for-22 with three doubles.

AAA: Pirates Rudy Owens Sparkles Against Reds Cueto

New level. Same results.

Rudy Owens just keeps on getting it done.  In AAA action yesterday, Owens pitched five no-hit innings as the Indianapolis Indians defeated the Louisville Bats 7-1. The southpaw allowed just three hits in the game before Tony Watson relieved him in the sixth.

Owens improved his ERA to 1.35 on the season by going 6.1 innings, walking two and striking out three. He allowed one earned run and just one extra base hit, a double.

For the Tribe, Alex Presley and Andrew Lambo each had two hits. Josh Harrison, who is hitting .321, tripled, walked, drove in a run, and scored twice.

Lambo doubled off Johnny Cueto, who surrendered one run in 3.1 innings of work. It was enough to saddle Cueto with the loss.

    Without having to look it up (yes, I’m lazy. Shaddap.), is Cueto on a rehab assignment? Why is he in Louisville?

    • Tom Smith

      Yes he is on a rehab assignment (triceps) and reports I read mentioned he touched 94 and will make a few rehab starts before the Reds activate him.
