It doesn't look like there will be a game for the Bats tonight.

They are pulling the tarp off in Louisville. Hopefully, they can get a game in without too much delay.

Frazier isn't playing tonight. Cozart's out of the lineup again too. They must be saving him for a pinch hit walk late in the game.

I'm guessing that Cozart has an injury that prevents him from fielding, but maybe not hitting/walking.

Cozart sprained his ankle a couple weeks ago, so maybe that injury flared up again.

Dayton's first four hitters reached base...and they didn't score. Fellhauer walked, Coddington singled, Mendez singled but Fellhauer was thrown out at the plate, and then Wiley singled to load the bases but the next two batters made outs.

Stubbs just hit a ball 400 feet.

Unfortunately, it was to straight away center which is 405.

Heisey strikes out on 3 pitches. Strike 2 was looking and, well it didn't look like a strike to me or Chris. He is in just his second slump this season.

Rough inning for the Bats bats. Two line drives, a walk and a 404 foot fly ball result in 0 runs.

Just like normal, Heisey goes 3-5 one night and what do they do they make sure they cool him off by sitting him the next game. Since then he is like 0-11. Bob Boone was great for that.

Yorman's first atbat of the night:

Ball 1, ball 2, strike 1 swinging, strike 2 called, ball three, foul, ball four. Another nice atbat by Yorman.

This is the first time I have seen Travis Wood pitch this year for more than a few batters. His curveball is still inconsistent, but its come a long way and its a pretty good pitch when its on.

Billings is down 1-0 in the 2nd inning.
Dayton just got back underway after a rain delay.
Sarasota up 6-4 in the 8th.
Carolina down 3-2 in the 9th.

Chris Heisey throws out a runner at home. Throw was well over the cutoff man's head, but it made it probably 270 feet in the air to Miller just in time to beat the runner. Strong arm.

GOYA
07-30-2009, 09:39 PM
Heisey nails a runner at the plate. Strong throw but a little off-line. Obviously, close enough though.

dougdirt
07-30-2009, 09:42 PM
Corky Miller bloops one in for a single. Stubbs lines out to LF. Heisey flies out weakly on the first pitch.

What happened to Heisey patience he was showing in AA?

Isn't there only a month left? Dude is still 16. Let him finish up at Billings and then if he continues playing well (big if, he still has a very small sample size in Montana) then you have him start in Dayton.

Same here, I think outside shot at making Dayton bye seasons end next year. A small chance at mid season if he really tears it up in Billings to start next season. Prior to that I doubt it but I guess anything is possible, especially since Billings starts so late.

Prediction. I can't make a promise, I don't control it. But teams always promote their uber prospects to full season ball if they handle themselves even adequately in rookie ball.
