Evidently, there are no Southern League games tonight, so the Wahoos have the night off.

Juan Perez had 2 hits including a double, Diaz had one hit, and Wright had a solo HR. Defensively, Diaz and Terry both had errors.

Dayton was felled 4-1 by the Clinton Lumberjacks.

Juan Perez was 2-4 with a doubled. Ryan Wright homered for the Dragons only run and Sammy Diaz singled. That was the sum total of Dayton's offense.

Evidently a travel day for the Pioneer League too - no Billings game. The AZL Reds do not play tonight either.

The Blaze lineup tonight (sans Hamilton, Barnhart and Lutz):

Theo Bowe CF
Kurtis Muller RF
Steve Selsky DH
Travis Mattair 1B
Juan Duran LF
Chris Berset C
Niko Vasquez 3B
Devin Lohman SS
James Ewing 2B

It wouldn't surprise me to see Juan Perez or Ryan Wright headed to Bakersfield soon.

Steve Selsky singled in the top of the first and Billy'd 2nd, but that was it. No score with the High in the Desert coming to bat.

Wow that is a weak and uninteresting lineup.

It's amazing how virtually all of the Reds prospects are concentrated in Pensacola or Billings at this point. Bakersfield and Dayton are particularly devoid of talent.

In the bottom of the 1st, Rogers gives up a single and a double, but there was a pickoff in between. No score after 1 complete.

The Blaze go down in order in the 2nd and 3rd, Rogers is far less fortunate though. He gives up 2 runs in the bottom of the 2nd on five singles and two more in the bottom of the 3rd on a walk and a dinger. 4-0 HD after 3. A walk, 6 singles, a double and a home run in three innings - he's lucky it isn't worse.

The HD starter has retired 10 in a row and 12 of 13 total. Blaze trail 4-0 after 4 complete.

The Blaze break into the scoring column with two in the top of the fifth.

A walk to Juan Duran, a single by Chris Berset, a FC by Niko Vazquez forced Berest at 2nd. Duran scored on a throwing error though. Devin Lohman singled Vazquez to 3B, but was CS. James Ewingthen walkd and Theo Bowe singled in Vasquez. The HD lead is now 4-2 after five innings.

Bakersfield has now tied things up at four with two more in the top of the 7th. After the first two batters K'd, Berset doubled, Vasquez tripled him in and then he scored on a single by Lohman.

Rogers has been lifted without retiring a batter in the bottom of the seventh. Those High in the Desert guys have loaded the bases on a double, a single and a BB. Blaine Howell on in relief. Bases jammed, no outs, 4-4 tie, bottom of the 7th.

Howell comes in and gets a double play, but a run scores. After a BB, he gets a K for the final out of the 6th. 5-4 High Desert going to the seventh.

Steve Selsky singles in the top of the 7th, but they can't bring him around. Dan Wolford on to pitch the bottom of the inning. He gives up a leadoff single, but retires the next three in order. 5-4 Blaze trail going to the 8th.

What happened, cork? Had to go to bed?

Well, a team really ought to win when Chris Berset gets three hits, but it didn't work out that way for Bakersfield. HD scored 2 in the bottom of the ninth off Brooks Pinckard to take it, 7-6. Lohman also had three hits, Selsky two. Andrew Brackman, getting it together, threw a perfect inning, albeit without a K.

He may as well join the party in Pensacola.

I think I'd like to see it proven over a little more time.....

I'd go along with that for a young prospect, but Brackman's a different case. He's 26, he's a former No. 1 draft choice, he's been in the big leagues and he's thrown over 100 innings in Triple-A. I don't think there's any need to make him linger in High-A if he's not still struggling. Double-A is still a conservative placement for a guy with his resume.

I wouldn't mind a little more success where he is if it breeds confidence and adds some bricks to his foundation. There's not a big rush. But given his performance over the past few weeks, Pensacola seems a bit more appropriate. If not now, very soon.
