Balentien grand slam

Man, he's hot.

4-0 Bats in the 1st

(Following a Cisco walk after falling behind 0-2)

Any chance Balentien can make it back up to the bigs? I know his AVG is low, but he can flat out rake.

Chase Ware is pitching for the 'Cats. Ryan Berry is pitching for the Keys. I love his profile pic.

The Hillcats are down 2-1 in the bottom of the second. Nefi Soto singled and scored on a throwing error on a play in which Chris Richburg hit an infield single.

I'd be surprised if he went the rest of his career without being given another chance in the major leagues. He has serious power, and for a corner outfielder, his defense is pretty good. If the Reds didn't have so much outfield depth (Gomes, Nix, Heisey, Dickerson), I think he'd be up with the team right now.

VSL Reds take the first game of a double dip with the VSL Phillies by a score of 7-5. Torreyes, playing short, went 3-3, raising his average to .408. He smoked three line drives - two singles and a triple.

Charlotte tied the game on a grand slam, but in the bottom of the fourth, the Bats regained the lead on a Chris Dickerson homerun. 6-5 Bats in the fifth.

Lynchburg had the bases loaded with no one out in the third, but they only got one run out of it. However, they got three more in the fourth and now lead 5-2 in the fifth.

I know this isnt the right spot for this...but am I the only one who thinks Dickerson and Nix should be swapping spots?

You're definitely not the only one. There are only two reasons to like Nix more than Dickerson. Nix is better at staying healthy, and he is slightly more power potential. Other than that, I'm not sure I'd even want Nix on the 25-man roster at all.

VSL Reds take the second game as well by a score of 6-4. Torreyes goes 2 for 3 with a sac fly. He scored two and drove in two. He is now up to .412. While not goofing off he found time to steal 3 bases. He is playing SS, btw, and Valor is playing 2B.

BTW, in over 250 PA he has struck out just 9 times. Did Jim Coombs ever vacation in Venezuela?

Louisville just crushing the ball in July.

Seems like most of the team is OPS-ing over 1.000.

Man would I love to have Balentine up with the big club, unfortunately I would guess Dickerson gets the call first and Nix gets to keep his role. Either way, I am glad the Reds have the depth to store Balentine at AAA this year and maybe he will get a shot next season.

Nice inning by Chapman. He gave up an infield single (he's given up a ton of infield singles this season), but then bounced back with a strike out and a double play that he started himself.

1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 17 pitches/12 strikes

Chapman didn't quite start it. The ball tipped off his glove and went to Cozart who flipped to Valaika who bare handed it and fired to Alonso.

The infield single was real close. Cozart cut the ball off behind the second base bag (a little bit on the 2B side) and it was bang bang at first. Alonso thought they got the runner.

I would not mind seeing Chapman brought up for Bray, if Bray continues to struggle and no trades are made. Nothing like 100 heat coming out of the pen, he seems to be adjusting to the new role also.

I think eventually Springer, Chapman, Burton, and Izzy all up. Only Springer, and possibly Izzy before September callups.

We often talk about Springer, Chapman, Izzy (who I think will take a good amount of time to get ready) but Burton has put up great numbers recently.

Hamilton is 2 for 3 to move up to .305. Jefry Sierra is 2 for 2 to reach .308. Sierra is known as a second baseman, but lately he's been playing a lot of CF. He's very fast.

The AZL Reds are final, 14-0.

Carolina and Dayton were off. The DSL Reds' game has not been reported. Presumably, it may have been rained out. If so, everybody in the organization who played (including the Reds) has won today--the first time I can recall that happening. And except for the two close games in the doubleheader sweep for the VSL Reds, all the games were routs.

The collective score for those seven games: Reds 76, Opponents 22.

Very impressive night on the farm. Everyone won in blowout fashion. Jonathan Correa is looking like an interesting prospect - 34.1 IP, 31 H, 1 HR, 7 BB, 44 K, 1.83 ERA. He may be ready for a promotion to Billings.
