Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Tony Cingrani pitched a fine game, but for naught. There was no run support, and the pen faltered. He deserved better.
His line: 7 innings pitched, 5 hits, 2 runs (both earned), 0 walks, 9 Ks, 1 HR.
Grant Brisbee wrote An ode to Tony Cingrani, wherein he talks about Cingrani's history at Rice and praises the deceptiveness of his delivery.
And the Cincinnati Enquirer features a Tony Cingrani quiz. I got 9 out of 10, but I totally guessed on a couple of the questions.
Meanwhile, Paul Janish is still not in the Gwinnett lineup tonight. They said he's "Still not 100%." Which I guess is encouraging. It implies that he's improving, at least. I'm going to be very disappointed if he's not in the lineup when Gwinnett makes their northeast swing next month.
Rehab assignments are limited to 20 days for position players; Janish's began on April 15. However, he's expected to be optioned to Gwinnett when his rehab assignment ends, so the deadline shouldn't matter.
