Reds Win Behind Reynolds' Shutout and Homers from Palomba and Thurber
The Reds' 2017 season has been highlighted by a powerful offense, dominant pitching, and stingy defense. Saturday was no different as SS Alex Palomba and 1B Willem Thurber each hit home runs, LHP Joey Reynolds threw a two-hit shutout and the defense committed just one error. Palomba's home run was part of a three-hit effort and it was his first Little League roundtripper. C Turner Clews hit two doubles, scored three runs, and knocked in two. Reynolds added a two-run double and CF Nolan Chisholm hit a two-run single. The Pirates' two hits came off the bat of SS Patrick Gagliardi. On defense, CF Sam Bogart made a fine catch and C Nick Gerard continued to be rock solid behind the plate.
