Bakersfield falls behind 2-0 as Sharky Rogers, pitching around Miles Head, hangs a slider that just now might be landing. It stays that way until the Blaze score two in the eighth and then double that again in the ninth. They end up winning 6-3. Rogers gives up the two-run blast in five. Pat Doyle goes three scoreless in relief. Tucker Barnhart hits a game-tying inside-the-parker in the eighth. He has two other hits on the night. Hamilton walks to lead off the ninth. Uh oh. He steals second (72) and all sorts of bedlam ensues. Four runs later the dust clears. Bowe (.378) had three hits for the game as did Barnhart. Lohman and Mattair had two hits apiece. Tucker Barnhart is en fuego. He as hit safely in all ten of his last ten games. His line during that span is .361/.425/.528/.953.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
