"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman
The AZL Reds lost 6-2.
Arias and Silva both went 0-for-4, though Arias did steal his third base of the season.
Ismael Guillon: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
I miss Adam Dunn.
Billings lost 8-7.
Yorman went 1-for-5. Billy Hamilton was 2-for-4 with a double and his first stolen base. That's his second straight two hit game.
I miss Adam Dunn.
My opinion of Satterwhite will be jaded until I see him in person again. On Father's Day, he hit a very high pop fly to right field. The right fielder dropped it, and Satterwhite ended up on 1st base...which was totally inexcusable. The next batter ripped a base hit to right, and Satterwhite was thrown out trying to go 1st to 3rd. Maybe it was a momentary lapse, but I'm reserving judgment until I see another Dragons' game soon.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
I went to the last two Bats-Tides games and maybe it was the heat (temps around 100) and they just wanted out of there, but the Bats were hacktastic. If they were a football player, they'd be Hacksaw Reynolds. If they were a band, they'd be the Hackensaw Boys. You get the point.
Frazier had a couple big bombs, which was nice to see.
Francisco looked awful. I might be wrong, but I could swear he swung at the first pitch in every single at-bat.
Delgado did a nice job last night and Fisher pitched 2 strong innings of relief, with no hits, no walks, and 3 Ks.
I was hoping to see Chapman and/or Volquez while the Bats were in Norfolk but alas, it was not to be.
