3-3 so far in the 6th tonight, with 2 runs, an RBI, and 2 more steals (26 on the year). As noted above, he did get thrown out trying to swipe third base in the 1st. I suspect he just wanted Modesto to feel they were doing well.
What Tony Cingrani did last year in Billings is up there. When Jay Bruce was the age that Billy Hamilton is, he was hitting .364 in AAA with a .630 slugging.
