Pedro gets the start for Louisville tonight. Bats have won 3 out of 4 while scoring 25 runs in those four games. Nice to see the offense waking up a bit. The game is just getting underway. Scranton is the home team for this one.

Ramon Ortiz is pitching against the Bats tonight. I can't think of anything particularly amusing to say about it.

I read today that five Bakersfield players were selected as Cal League All-Stars: Cingrani (who has been promoted), Rogers, Hamilton (of course), Lutz and Pearl.

BTW, the Blaze are 3.5 games up in first place. They're the only Reds' minor league team with a winning record (although Pensacola is knocking on the door).

Bowling work two singles and a walk into another run in the third and now lead 2-0.
Louisville gets singles by Perez and Gathright but fail to capitalize. Still no score after 2.5.

I am at the Dragons game. Bray just came in on his rehab assignment. Recorded 2 quick outs on 6 pitches all strikes. He looks like he could be back anytime

Scranton plates a pair in the fourth on two doubles, an error and a wild pitch. That is the extent of the scoring through 5. Costanzo, Perez and Gathright with singles and Soto with a double account for the Bats four hits. 39-year old Ramon Ortiz pitching for Scranton. Villareal through 6 now has given up 5H 2R 1ER 3BB 4K.

Pensacola jumped on top early, scoring two in the first. Gregorius singled, Greene walked and Guzman doubled them home. Birmingham got one back in the bottom of the third and are still batting.

Bill Bray pitched 1.2 innings for the Dragons tonight. He retired all 5 batters striking out 3. He threw 19 pitches, 15 of them strikes. I would think he will be back with the Reds soon.

Dayton explodes for five in the bottom of the third and has tacked on two more in the fifth to lead 7-3. Tanner Robles had a rough start 4.1IP 8H 3R 3ER 3BB 5K. Bray came on and retired two in the fifth as noted above.

Buckley with two doubles. Selsky a double and a single. Five others with a hit apiece. Buckley stroking the ball in the last 10 games. Hitting over .300 and OPSing over .900 during that period.

Bill Bray has now gone 1.2 innings. Zero hits or walks and three strike outs. Some decisions to be made about the bullpen by the end of the month as Massett seems to be progressing well also.
Cole Green on to pitch the seventh for Dayton.

Bats picked up a hit in the seventh by Dioner Navarro but still trail 2-0.

It looks like Dayton has moved to Milb.tv. Tonight seems to be their first night and well, the angles they are using leave a lot to be desired. They seem to be shooting from the dugout wells and are so far zoomed in on the pitcher that you can't see his legs and the same goes for the hitter. No CF camera. Hopefully that gets fixed because with how things are being shot right now, you can't even see if the hitter makes contact with the ball.

Pensacola might be our best team by the end of the year when all the promotions are done. The 4 remaining all stars are more than likely headed there.

Louisville picked up a run in the top of the 8th to momentarily make things interesting. They left the tying run on third. Scott Carroll comes on and gives it right back in the home half of the frame. Bats lose 3-1. Felix Perez, Dioner Navarro (.309) and Joey Gathright (.338) with two base knocks each.
Pedro Villarreal allows only one earned run in 7IP.

Dayton ended up winning 9-5. Buckley had a single to go with the two doubles. Kyle Waldrop homered and singled.

Pensacola was suspended in the fourth, leading 2-1. Joel Guzman doubled home the runs. Corcino's line: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K. 1 HR. 54 pitches.

Bakersfield falls behind 2-0 as Sharky Rogers, pitching around Miles Head, hangs a slider that just now might be landing. It stays that way until the Blaze score two in the eighth and then double that again in the ninth. They end up winning 6-3. Rogers gives up the two-run blast in five. Pat Doyle goes three scoreless in relief. Tucker Barnhart hits a game-tying inside-the-parker in the eighth. He has two other hits on the night. Hamilton walks to lead off the ninth. Uh oh. He steals second (72) and all sorts of bedlam ensues. Four runs later the dust clears. Bowe (.378) had three hits for the game as did Barnhart. Lohman and Mattair had two hits apiece. Tucker Barnhart is en fuego. He as hit safely in all ten of his last ten games. His line during that span is .361/.425/.528/.953.

Any time frame for Lutz's return?

Outstanding to see Dayton and Pensacola on board (with Louisville) !!!!

Inside the Parker for a catcher? That has to be pretty rare.

Pensacola could have like 90% of the top prospects in the organization by te time the year is out. At least out of the guys in full season ball.

The organization overall is looking really good right now,

We have a ton of arms at the A thru AA level, and some decent hitting prospects in that area also.
