The Bats are up 2-1 in the 5th. Volquez on the mound in the first game, 1 run, 2 walks after 4 for him so far.

The Bats lineup is starting to looking a little more human on paper without Sappelt, Frazier, Alonso and Cozart.

One of our old favorites, Chris Dickerson, doubled in a run off of Volquez. 2-2 with the help fo a Michael Griffin throwing error.

Phipps 2 Run HR to give the Bats the lead in the 1st! Right now I don't think it makes any difference who is on the mounds, he is just hitting EVERYTHING. His chances of a sept call up improve every day...

Interesting thought, guess he will more than likely be put on the 40 man this season anyway. What about just leaving him down to keep mashing and not risk exposing him then trade him in the off season? There is becoming a glutton of outfielders for the Reds it seems.

Perfect 8th for a save and a Bats win. Wasn't expecting that! Turnaround point?

The pitching in the first game came entirely from erstwhile Reds: Volquez, Burton, Fisher and Jordan Smith.

Billings is scoreless after three with McMyne pitching.

. . . Buckley's 11th HR has now put Billings up 1-0.

You don't see many 1-0 games in the Pioneer League, but Buckley's HR stood up. The shutout pitching came from McMyne, Muhammad and James Allen (sixth save). Kyle Waldrop and Kurt Muller each had three hits.

Has Buckley been getting many games at 3B ? I have checked in a few times and seems to be DHing a decent amount.

Also McMyne has given up 1 run over his last 9 innings. Hopefully this is a nice little finish to his year. Little bit of a questionable pick, but I remember thinking some of the same when Boxberger was picked.

Thank Doug, where do you find that type of stat? Is there a way to see where they play on milb.com that I am missing?

Torreyes has hit his third home run and Dayton leads 2-1 after six, behind Tanner Robles. Jared Matthews also hit one. And Billy Hamilton hit into a 6-4-3 double play. How does that happen?

Quintin Berry has four stolen bases in that game. And one caught stealing.

In other news, Soto hasn't hit his daily home run yet.

Dayton is delayed in the seventh, up 4-1. There doesn't appear to be a loophole by which the league can take this one away if it doesn't resume.

Daniel Renken is pitching for Bakersfield tonight. The Blaze trail 1-0 after two.

Freeman in for Adkins in the bottom of the 9th with runners on 1st and 3rd with one out...3-3 game.

The Dayton game was concluded early as a 4-1 win.

The Bakers lead 2-1 in the fifth on Kevin Coddington's two-run HR, which is not a common occurrence. Renken has fanned five in four innings.

Coddington added another RBI with a double and Bakersfield held on 4-3. Renken went six innings, one run, six K. Tenth save for Salinas.

Torreyes almost had a two-homer night. The second would have been oppo. The right fielder made a leaping catch at the fence. He did not rob a homer, but it was not short by much.

The Hamilton GIDP was a one-hop rocket right at the shortstop and an easy 6-4-3 DP. Three GIDP's this year for Billy. Even the fastest of the fast will have some.

Great night for Robles against what appears to be a very weak lineup, but one that will include Shin-Soo Choo tomorrow.

Torreyes, future cleanup hitter for the Reds. He has oppo power!

Wow, what is going on with Coddington? He has been raking ever since being sent down to Bakersfield. I was hoping to see Fleury get a bunch of ABs after Grandal was promoted, but Coddington is getting most of the PT. Fleury might be hurt now, but even if he were healthy it wouldn't matter much. Coddington is playing very well.

We could really use some quality catching depth in this organization. LMAO.

72, does Torreyes go the other way quite a bit? Does he use foul line to foul line?
