Mudcats trail Jacksonville 5-2 in the 6th. Phipps 1 for 2. Soto blasted #16 completely out of the stadium. Okay, I made that last part up. He did hit #16 though.

Louisville tied up with Charlotte in the 6th 4 apiece. Wood has picked off two Knights so far, so he has that going for him. Alonso, Frazier and Costanzo each has doubled for the Bats.

Quad City River Bandits bounce back to take a 4-3 lead. Hamilton 1 for 2. Torreyes 1 for 2. And the aforementioned jack by Yorman.

A quick perusal shows that's his 11th HR in his last 20 games, since the break.

Of those 11, 17 have left the stadium.

Corcino has been coming back to earth a bit. Last night, Gerson got some comeuppance, as well.

Carolina is playing Jackson instead of Jacksonville. Doesn't much matter. They trail 6-2 late.

Dragons and River Bandits entertaining the crowd tonight. Dayton ties it at 4 in the top of the 4th. Quad Cities takes the lead back in the bottom half of the inning at 5-4. Daytons comes right back and scores a pair in the top of the fifth to reclaim the lead at 6-5.

What's gotten into Phipps?

He's going all Jose Bautista after many many years of doing pretty much nothing in the Reds system.

Tucker Barnhart 1 for 1 with two walk and two RBI.

Maybe the quiet realization that your career is just about over provided the necessary impetus. Or maybe he just got really, really hot.

Corcino's night is finished. 5IP 7H 5ER 2BB 6K. Pearl on in relief. Torreyes now 2 for 4 with a triple.

Jordan Smith surrenders a couple of runs in the 8th and the Bats go down in flame by a score of 6-4.

Carolina fell behind 10-2 but have scored five times in the 8th to make it a semi-ball game at 10-7. Phipps, Rodriguez, Soto, Cook each with two hits. Soto and Felix Perez have left the yard. Jose Castro now has two hits with a single here in the 8th. One out. Carlos Mendez has just reached on an infield single so the tying run is now at the plate. Quinton Berry lines out to center for the second out. Phipps up.

Phipps strikes out swinging to end the Mudcat rally in the 8th. They trail by 3 heading into the ninth.

Billings postponed. Bakersfield starts in about 20 minutes if my time zone calculating is correct.
AZL Reds jump out to a 2 zip first inning lead. 2nd round and just signed Gabriel Rosa is making his debut at third. He flies out to left in his first AB. Brandon Dailey, who is putting up some lofty numbers, led off the first by getting hit and came around to score.

texasdave

Through 2 now and the AZL Reds still lead 2-0. French, pitching for the
Reds' farm club, is administering some Wild West Justice by striking out two and not allowing any hits. He now has 24 Ks in 15 IP.

Back in Mudcat Land, Donnie Joseph pitches a scoreless 9th. Henry Rodriguez walks to lead off the bottom of the frame with Carolina needing 3 to tie, four to win. Nothing further comes of it and Carolina loses 10-7.

Justice French now with four hitless innings. I think that is usually about all a starter goes in the AZL.

Quad Cities takes a 7-6 lead in the 7th but the Dragons post a two-spot in the top of the 8th. This has been a wild one. 8-7 Dayton in the middle of the 8th. Quad Cities has scored with one out in the bottom of the 8th and it now all tied up again. Dayton's runs in the top of the 8th came courtesy of two walks, a botched sac bunt play to load the bases and a two-run single by Yorman, giving him 4 RBI on the night.

French gives up an unearned run in the fifth courtesy Gabriel Encarnacion Rosa's throwing error. Lucas O'Rear on to pitch the sixth. AZL Reds lead 4-1. AZL Reds have made four errors in the game so far.

Tucker Barnhart singles in a run in the top of the 9th. Dayton up 9-8 and still batting. Torreyes just doubled in two runs and then scored on a single. 12-8 Dragons.

Drew Hayes came on to shut the River Bandits down in the 8th and then pitched a scoreless 9th to get the win.

Drew Hayes with the win for Dayton as the Dragons prevail 12-8. Hayes is a stud.

Needs to go to Bakersfield and see what he can do. Same with Josh Smith.

AZL Reds prevail 6-2. Catcher Wagner Gomez hit his 3rd homer of the season. The switch-hitting catcher is now batting .295 for the year. Of his 13 hits, 8 have been for extra bases. He is slugging over .600 and his OPS must be over .950 after tonight's game.

Gabriel Rosa is making his debut at third.

Any chance of him sticking there? If so, his value skyrockets as a prospect. You need a good stick at 3B, but not nearly as big of a stick as you would need in a corner outfield spot.

Torreyes is a freaking BEAST! I am totally getting a man-crush on this young man. All he does is impress me...and then goes and makes me revise that thinking by impressing me even more. He's fast, plays great defense at a premium position, hits for average, hits for power, hits to all fields...I can't wait to see him moved up.

2011: .364/.417/.534/.951 88 ab/ 5 2b / 2 3b / 2 hr / 5 sb / 6 bb / 6 k
2010: .370/.434/.564/.999 (3 levels) 400 ab/ 29 2b / 12 3b / 5 hr / 25 sb / 24 bb / 19 k

I can't wait to see him moved up.

Let's see how he does in Dayton for the rest of this season first. If he tears it up for the whole second half, we can consider moving him to Bakersfield next year. May not be bad to reward Dayton with a stud again in 2012 for the first half and then call him straight up to Pensacola at the All-Star break, though.

I wasn't trying to suggest he be moved now. Just giddy with anticipation is all. :O)

Haha, as am I. AZL success is one thing, stepping it up in the MWL means a whole lot more. Here's to hoping Torreyes continues it through the rest of the season. :beerme:
