Former South Suburban Pitcher Gets First MLB Win
April 22, 2013
Tony Cingrani, former South Suburban College LHP (2008, 2009), earned his first major league Firday night as the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Florida Marlins 11-1. Cingrani pitched five innings allowing one run and striking out eight. He was just called up last week to join the Reds’ starting rotation.
After his 2009 season with the Bulldogs, Cingrani transferred to Rice University where he pitched for the perennial powerhouse Owls for two years. In 2011, Cingrani was drafted in the third round by the Reds, and in 2012 he was called up to the big leagues at the end of the year to pitch out of the bullpen. His next start will be next week against the Chicago Cubs.
