Frazier singles with two outs and then steals second. I didn't realize that he had 16 steals this year.

Corky walks. Two on and two out for the disappointment of the year for the Bats, Chris Valaika.

Volquez went 6 innings only giving up that one earned run. The downside of the start was 4 BB, but only 2 H. Volquez had 3 K and 105 pitches with 61 strikes.

I take that back. Lotzkar did hit the second batter of the game.

Reineke gives up a bomb in the bottom of the 8th and it is 2-2 right now.

Last time out, Lotzkar pitched no-hit ball through four and blew up in the fifth. Today, he pitches one-hit ball through four and gives up two in the fifth. I guess his endurance isn't there yet. Dragons trail 2-1.

Volquez needs some tough love. He is probably thinking he did good. I'd send him to AA or Arizona and let him know that 4 walks are unacceptable.

The bubble bursts for Boxberger. Three in the tenth and Louisville falls 5-3.

David Vidal's 2-run HR has put Dayton back ahead, 3-2, now in the eighth. Lotzkar went six innings, recovering nicely in the sixth.

Dayton wins 6-2 after scoring three in the eighth. Man, that team is playing well.

In relief of Lotzkar, three relievers (Luca Panerati, Daniel Wolford and Blaine Howell) put up identical lines: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 K. Nice.

Hamilton had three hits.

Carolina and Huntsville are postponed for this evening.

Wes Mugarian wishes he played for the Mudcats right about now. Instead, he started for Billings, which trails 8-0 after four.

Billy Hamilton's three-hit game is the eighth straight game where he has got a hit. In five of those eight games he has had multiple hits. His line is now up to .241/.296/.316. Still not a good line, but it is improving for the year.

While Billy did have a .252 BA in June, he did only take 3 walks so his OBP was still an abysmal .269. July has been much better. Billy has already matched his June walk total and is sporting a .326/.370/.326 line in 43 July ABs. Let's hope more walks come with the hits.

Additionally, Duran's recent surge has been highlighted, now Yorman is starting to hit (up to .249 after yesterday's 2-4). Throw in the addition of Torreyes who I would have like to have seen in Dayton from the season's start and you've got a team that is shaping up to be exceptionally fun to watch thru the 2nd half.
