• Cingrani notches four-strikeout inning against Nats

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 29, 2013
    Tony Cingrani continues to impress: Tony Cingrani has proven to be much more than a stopgap for the Cincinnati Reds. Cingrani, who was making just his third Major League start, threw six scoreless innings and gave up just two hits with a career-high 11 strikeouts and one walk. Cingrani became the fifth Reds pitcher to strike out four batters in an inning when he struck out Denard Span, who reached first base when the ball got by catcher Corky Miller in the fourth inning, and then followed by shutting down Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond, Adam LaRoche. He could not recall being in a Major League game where a pitcher strikes out four in an inning. Perhaps most surprising about the Pirates successes: They've come without big contributions from franchise player Andrew McCutchen, who didn't play Sunday and is in the middle of a 2-for-26 slump. Overall, he's hitting .216.
