Reed, who allowed six runs in 2 23 innings in his previous start, didnt factor into the decision on Monday. But he did throw four shutout, no-hit innings, marking the seventh time in 10 appearances that he has not allowed a run. Three of those seven shutout appearances have been starts.

Joe Zeller followed and picked up the win after allowing a run over three innings. Dustin Geiger, a 24th-round pick, had two hits and an RBI.
