"All I can tell them is pick a good one and sock it." --BABE RUTH
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Yorman hits a walk off bomb in the 11th to give the Mustangs the win.
Ronald Torreyes was 2 for 2 today in the VSL Reds' 8-7 loss. He now sits at .398. That's with a .476 OBP and 1.106 OPS. Normally a 3B, he's been playing more SS lately, including today.
It's pretty impressive that, at 7-3, Jordan Hotchkiss has a .700 winning percentage for a team that is .377 in other games. He and Lynchburg won today, 6-5.
Scott Carroll had a nice bounce-back start today as Carolina won, 5-1. Dave Sappelt's two hits put him at .352, and his 3 RBIs at 49 in 273 at-bats (in AA). I know a lot of people take a dim view of RBIs, but nevertheless, that's pretty strong for a little guy who rarely hits in the 4- or 5-hole.
It would be nice to see either Mesoraco or Sappelt although I don't think it will happen.
Mendez is also rule five eligible, but I don't think the Reds will make a decision on him until this winter.
just checked the box scores and saw the Dayton game went 16 innings.
They lost 8-5.
Andrew Means somehow managed to draw 2 walks tonight, going 2-6 with 2bb's and a stolen base. M. Fleury also went 2-5 with a 2b and 2bb.
