Louisville trails 2-0. Negron, Rodriguez and Chad Reineke with singles. Reineke has allowed two runs through three innings on five hits and a walk. On the plus side he has struck out four.

Pensacola just about underway. JC Sulbaran will be assigned the task of shutting down the Barons of Birmingham. I wonder if they are still travelling around in that bus Michael Jordan bought them back in the mid-90s?

Wes Mugarian receiving a rough introduction to A ball. He has given up three runs on five hits and two walks. Two big flies haven't helped. He has struck out three in four innings of work. All three runs scored in the second. Mugarian has retired six in a row. The bats, which were smoking hot on the 4th, are cold. Yorman Rodriguez has the lone hit for the Dragons so far, a single in the bottom of the fourth. Yorman is batting .333 in his last 33 at-bats. Good to see.

HRod will be on the Reds before long methinks. At least in time to qualify for the playoffs.

Louisville has rallied to take a 4-3 lead after 5 and a half innings of play. Phipps walked, advanced on two ground outs and scored on a single by Corky to break the scoring ice. Negron was hit by a pitch, stole second, was sacrificed to third and scored on another ground out. Rhinehart walked, scored on a triple by Cody Puckett and then was plated by Corky Miller's second single on the night.

Dayton trails 6-1 after six. Four hits for the Dragons, two by Yorman and one each by Silva and Perez. Silva's was a double and he eventually came around to score.
Wes Mugarian with a rough Midwest League debut, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and two walks in 4.2 IP. Lucas O'Rear has taken over pitching duties, giving up one earned run in 2.1 IP.

With the addition of Gelalich, Amaral and Pigott, the Billings oF is becoming a crowded place and Adam Matthews has tweeted that ?he's headed to Montana." Even though you would most likely considered a 3V, the corner IF spots and the DH aren't much less populated with Mejias-Brean, Robert Maddox, Carlos Sanchez and Robert Ramierez (with the last three all swinging hot bats).

Spencer Dickinson went to Dayton today, with the injury to Junior Arias. It wouldn't surprice me to see at least a couple more join him. I'd say Maddox, Sanches and Gelalich are all top candidates.

Thanks.

The box scores are kind of screwy tonight. If you go by the pitchers' lines, Dayton actually gave up 11 runs.

It would seem Milb.com is having some database issues. The box scores are all kinds of screwy, as Mace pointed out. Hopefully it gets straightened out soon.

Several guys had impressive nights.

Robert Maddox, who had 3 HR last night, has another tonight. He does not belong in Billings. He played there last year and I believe finished second in the league in HR.

Billings leads 3-1 in the sixth. Guillon threw four scoreless, very good innings.

dougdirt
07-06-2012, 12:12 AM
At the same time, Maddox also struck out 73 times and walked just 10 times last season in Billings. His power will play, but the rest of his game could use some work.

Pensacola lost 6-2. Sulbaran had a quality start, if barely (6 IP, 3 ER). Barnhart was 0-2 with a walk.

The AZL Reds trail 4-2 in the sixth, without a hit. Wandy Peralta gave up 1 ER in 4 IP and struck out 5.

Billy singles, steals (102) and scores on Bowe's single. Bakersfield leads 1-0 in the third behind Tanner Robles.

dougdirt
07-06-2012, 12:40 AM
I still maintain that Theo Bowe ought to be buying lottery tickets in Bakersfield every single day. There is something about that place that has done miracles for him. Yeah, his BABIP is incredibly high but I would be out there trying to push that luck as long as I could.

mace
07-06-2012, 12:40 AM
For Billings, Gelalich and Mejias-Brean, in their debuts, are each 0-2 with a walk.

Ty Washington's single in the eighth avoids the no-hitter for the AZL Reds. They still trail 4-2.

Doug, do you have the feeling that Winker could be one of those guys that move through the minors a little faster than the average prospect? To maybe be an option in left sometime in 2014?

Just the fact that he started in Billings out of high school says something about his polish. Let alone the fact that he's put up a .550OBP and a 1/1 K:BB ratio so far.

mace
07-06-2012, 01:39 AM
Robles put up a terrific first start in Bakersfield: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K.

Lutz has a HR. Hamilton's 2-3 with a 2B. Blaze lead 3-0.

Jimmy Moran pitched the final 2.1 innings in a 7-2 victory for Billings.

The AZL Reds lost 4-2, managing but two hits. Richard McCaffrey pitched three scoreless innings and Joseph Housey finished with one. Avain Rachal worked two walks, making him the offensive star of the night for the Reds.

I was at the Dayton Dragons game today. Yorman Rodriguez was impressive. He drilled three screaming line drives deep into the outfield. Two fell for hits including an opposite field shot over the rightfielder's head and another one was caught by the centerfielder. He also had an infield single where the third baseman tried to barehand a bouncer. Yorman has power, speed and athleticism in spades. I was happy with what I saw from him. He was the lone bright spot for the Dragons in an 11-2 butt-kicking.

He seems to have a very advanced approach, but he is just 18 years old right now. 2014 is too soon.

Reds' top prospect Billy Hamilton finished 3-for-5 with a double and three runs scored. The shortstop added two stolen bases to give him 103 on the year, equaling his career high established last season with Dayton.

Benihana
07-06-2012, 11:09 AM
I would think Winker could and should get to Dayton in the next month if he continues to rake at this pace. Especially since they (somewhat inexplicably) decided to start Gelalich in Billings.

Another amazing statistic is that in 81 games Billy Hamilton has scored 78 runs. That's nearly a run a game. Hey, a run a game! Just like the Reds!
