Denis Phipps is back in the Louisville lineup, batting third. Let's hope it's a different Phipps than the one who started the season.

The Bats are tied 1-1 in the fourth. Costanzo is 2-2. Navarro is 1-2 with a 2B, batting .333. Phipps is 1-2. Reineke's pitching.

06-30-2012, 08:22 PM
Just noticed that Neftali Soto is also back in the lineup. It isn't especially helping. Bats trail 7-1 in the eighth.

To that end, Josh Judy has had one of the more disappointing seasons among Reds farmhands.

06-30-2012, 08:23 PM
Sulbaran has the ball tonight for Pensacola. It's 1-1 after three.

06-30-2012, 08:27 PM
Dayton scored 7 in the second and leads 7-2 in the fifth, with Tanner Robles pitching. The following guys are 2-3: Arias (2 steals), Perez (2 doubles), Buckley (HR), and Wright (2B). Silva has also homered.

I was at a Dayton game the other day and was impressed by Arias' approach at the plate. I don't think he had a spectacular game but he clearly had an idea of the zone and what pitches to lay off of.

Random anecdote from a layman so take it for what it's worth.

Juan Silva's June: .383/ .526 (!)/ .633/ 1.159.

Yeah, I'd take that from my starting CF.

Unfortunately, he has two really lousy months in April and May.

Buckley has also had a nice June (.295/ .368/ .474/ .842) though he's apparently going to end up a 1B. That means he'll have to really turn it on.

Juan Perez might also be heating up (and 856 OPS in his last 10); that's certainly good to see. He's my pick as sleeper of the year-- sadly, he's been Rip Van Winkle.

06-30-2012, 10:08 PM
Perez tonight was 3-5 with two 2B and a HR. Robles got the win and El'Hajj Muhammad pitched three hitless innings. Final was 9-2.

06-30-2012, 10:11 PM
Beau Mills has doubled and driven in a pair. Pensacola leads 4-2 in the eighth.

Sulbaran's line: 6.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K. Big item there is the one walk.
