Re: Wednesday 8/01/2012 Minor League Updates
Billings took a 6-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth and still managed to walk off the fields losers. Alejandro Chacin was charged with 5 runs in 2/3s of an inning pitched. He got no help from his defense as four of the runs were unearned. Mustangs' manager must have lost count of the innings as he ran his closer, Matt Wiley, out there in the 8th. Wiley, he of the 0.00 ERA proceeded to strike out the side.
Amaral and Dailey whacked out three hits each. Jesse Winker, the slacker, could only manage a pair. Daniel Pigott also had a couple of hits in the loss.
Billings' hitters have some impressive averages.
Winker - .352
Seth-Brean - .378
Vincej - .367
Dailey - .359
Pigott - .353
Julio Murillo made his Pioneer League debut.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
