Hamilton walks to lead off the first. Moves to second on an error on a pickoff attempt. Steals third. Is stranded.

Through three Cingrani is perfect. 2 Ks. Only 32 pitches. No score. Hamilton has been the only baserunner.

Louisville and Tim Gustafson fell behind 5 zip early but Bats' bats have rallied to tie things up. Felix Perez is 2 for 2 and is now hitting .299. Gregorius with a couple hits. Phipps 1 for 1 with a walk. Henry Rodriguez with a double.

Tony Cingrani is dealing tonight. 6 strikeouts through 5. He has faced the minimum with just 59 pitches thrown. Fastball has some outstanding life tonight.

What's your read on him, Doug?

Must improve secondary stuff or he is a reliever.

Cingrani lost his perfect game with a walk, then his no hitter to the next batter with a double and then the shut out on a ground out. Blue Wahoos down 1-0.

Cingrani gives up 1 more and the Blue Wahoos trail 2-0 heading to the bottom of the final frame (unless they tie it up).

Tucker Barnhart hit a 2 out 2 run HR to tie the game up. Heading to extras (the 8th) in this double header.

And just like that, Montgomery cracks a solo HR to make it 3-2 in the 8th.

Montgomery is up 4-2 in the 8th. Bases juiced for David Vidal. Billy Hamilton also stole another base, sitting at 147.

The Blue Wahoos ended up losing game 1 of the double header 4-2 only 4 hits for the Blue Wahoos in eight innings.

Louisville ended up taking a 7-5 lead, then the bullpen coughed it up. Bats now trail 10-7.

Didi has two hits already to bring his BA to .248. Henry is 1 for 4 to bring his BA to .235. I really thought HRod was doing better. Felix did get a third hit to bring his BA all the way up to .300.

BTW, I know BA is not the best measure of offensive performance, but FanGraphs doesn't give up to the second OPS numbers like the box score will give you a BA.

Sean Buckley was 2-2, both doubles, with 2 walks and 3 RBIs, in Dayton's 6-3 win. Radhames Quezada went four scoreless innings with 5 K. Wes Mugarian fanned 4 over the next four to get the decision.

For Billings, Jonathan Moscot, Jordan Remer and Jose Amezcua have worked six scoreless innings for a 3-0 lead. Zach Vincej is 2-3 (.427) and Carlos Sanchez has his fifth double in two games.

Travieso looking sharp for the Red Runts tonight: 4 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. The kiddies lead 1-0. Humberto Valor is 2-2.

Ryan Wright's 2-run HR accounts for Bakersfield's side of a 2-2 score, third inning. Josh Smith (3 H, 3 BB) hasn't yet settled down.

AZL Reds won in a rain shortened game. Jonathan Reynoso is hitting .339 with some speed.

Which is his 4th straight game with a homer. I know some on here (dougdirt) were wanting Wright to show the power he showed last year and thus far in the second half he most definitely has been. Figured he deserves some props.

Really wonder about it being the Cal League though.

Well I watched him hit homers in 3 straight games in Dayton about to weeks prior to his call up to Bakersfield. Including one of the Kroger sign to the left of the scoreboard, so while it being the Cali League may help, it's not a fluke. Yorman also went against that theory when comparing his results from Bakersfield to Dayton, however I think his attitude played the largest role in that

He had some issues with his load in the first half of the season which basically didn't allow him to generate his full power potential yet didn't affect his swing other than that, thus the high AVG and 2B numbers in the first half. He was able to work on it and correct it over the all star break and I personally saw a night and day difference in his swing from the 1st half to the 2nd half.

All I'm saying is I think you're wrong if you don't consider him to be in the 10-15 range in the organization.

Who else fills out your list? I think that's the more important question. Some years, Wright might seem like a top-5 prospect. Other years, he might not make the top-20. It all depends on who's in your organization at the time.

I never said I didn't consider him there. I don't know though. He isn't 10, but might be 15. Just not sure yet.

Wasn't making a generality but referring to some of Dougdirt's past comments on his ranking within the organization and wanted to point out that his biggest issue (power) in the first half has been one of his strong suits in the second half.

I'd be curious to hear some of your guys' thoughts on comparing H-Rod and Wright as prospects. I don't know enough about H-Rod to make a comparison but have noticed he's having a down year this year despite the improved defense.
