Not long after teammate Daniel Corcino threw eight innings of a no-hitter Tony Cingrani tossed a gem of his own. He established dominance early last night by striking out ten of hte first eleven batters faced. The left-hander finished the night with a franchise-record fifteen K's while pitching eight shutout allowing only three hits and walking one.
Pensacola took a 2-0 in the first inning against Jackson and that would be all the Fish needed as they cruised to a 5-0 win at Blue Wahoo Field last night.

added two hits with a triple and an RBI. On the mound
had the best outing of his still-brief AA career when he shut out the Generals on three hits in eight innings. The most impressive stat in his line for the night was a franchise-record fifteen strikeouts with only one walk.
Cingrani was coming off the shortest outing of the season when he was lifted in the fourth at Chattanooga after throwing 90 pitches. He established dominance early Wednesday by striking out ten of the first eleven batters faced. After converting the reliever out of the
bullpen into a starter the Reds have been careful to limit the southpaw’s pitches since coming into the organization. Of course the only way he could strike out that many and last eight innings is to really attack the plate. Attack it he did by throwing 73 of 100 pitches for strikes.
Cingrani started off the season dominating batters in the hitter-friendly California League while posting a 1.11 ERA. He now has a 2-1 record and a 2.15 ERA/sub-1 WHIP at the AA level and hasn’t allowed more than three runs in any of his five starts. His command has allowed him to maintain his impressive K/BB ratio against more advanced hitters and right now he’s at 38/8 over 29+ innings.
This isn’t the only time a Blue Wahoo pitcher has turned in an eye-popping performance recently. In his last outing before the all-star break
tossed eight innings of a no-hitter. Pensacola currently has the second lowest team ERA in the Southern League.
The Reds have been fortunate thus far in 2012 to have all their starts provided by the opening day rotation. It seems overly-optimistic to expect them to get 162 starts from only five pitchers. Should they look to reach down to the AAA level they will find a rotation dominated by veterans on a staff with the second highest ERA in the International League. Starting pitching depth within the organization will be upgraded in the not-so-distant future when the current Pensacola rotation advances.
Pensacola’s 4-3 record ties them for first place in the Southern League South Division’s second half. It often seems that good pitching is contagious. If that be the case, then Pensacola is a good candidate for it. The next turn goes to
