Right-hander Daniel Corcino, the Reds' No. 11 prospect, according to MLB.com, threw eight scoreless innings to help Double-A Pensacola earn a 3-2 win over Jackson on Thursday.

Corcino struck out six and held the Generals to four hits and one walk. He threw 98 pitches to match the longest start of his career. Corcino last threw eight innings on June 29, 2012, also for Pensacola.

Corcino has struggled with his control in the upper levels of the Minor Leagues, averaging 4.54 walks per nine innings between Pensacola and Triple-A Louisville in the last three seasons. But he filled up the strike zone on Thursday, walking just one batter, as 65 percent of his pitches were strikes.

Right-hander Shane Dyer relieved Corcino to start the ninth and, though Jackson scored two runs, he was able to close out the victory for Corcino. He improved to 10-9 with a 4.03 ERA this season. He has struck out 99 batters and walked 66 in 131 2/3 innings.
