RF Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with 2 doubles and an RBI while RHP Johnny Cueto rung up 6 batters in 6.2 innings of 4-hit, one-run ball to help propel Dayton (CIN) to a 3-1 home triumph over South Bend (AZD). Bruce has racked up 4 multi-hit games in the last 6 games, going 10-for-24 (.417) during that run to hoist his average to .295. He currently leads the MWL in two-baggers (27), ranks 2nd in total bases (148), and is tied for 3rd in RBIs (48). Will the Reds promote Bruce to High-A? That may depend on the playoff possibilities of Dayton and Sarasota. Cueto has emerged as one of the Reds’ top prospects this season. The 20-year-old right-hander has won his last 3 starts and is a sparkling 8-1 on for the season. He currently ranks 6th in the MWL in punchouts (82) and is 9th in ERA (2.59). He’s doled out just 52 hits and 15 walks in 76.1 innings. Impressive. The Dragons’ rotation features three of the Reds’ best prospects in Cueto, LHP Travis Wood, and RHP Zach Ward.
