Re: Thursday 7/19/2012 Minor-League Updates
Billings scored twice in the visitor's half of the ninth to give the Orem fans some free baseball but eventually fall by a score of 9-8 in 11 innings. Leadoff batter Beau Amaral went hitless but walked three times and scored two runs. Jesse Winker was 2 for 6. Seth Mejias-Brean and Taylor Wrenn chipped in a pair of hits apiece. Sean Lucas faced two batters and struck them both out.
Orem scored the winning run in the bottom of the 11th of Erik Miller without the benefit of a base hit. A one-out walk was followed by an error on the throw on a pickoff attempt, a hits batsman, a wild pitch, an intentional base on balls and, mercifully, another hits batsman to end the proceedings.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
