Phipps with two hits including a home run. Sixth straight multi-hit game for him.
The best I can do is:
For April-May, he hit .197.
For June-July, he is hitting .416.

Corcino's getting beat up a little bit again tonight.
Soto hit homer number 18, his second of the night.
For all of those that were saying no to adding Soto to the 40-man a month or so ago, he has hit 13 bombs in the second half, which began June 23. (25 games)
Also, Soto's breakout seems to make Alonso seem a lot more expendable. I don't see any way he isn't traded this season.

Duran was replaced in left field. It could be because it's 13-5, but I kinda doubt it.
Yeah, there's no question Soto will be on the 40-man this offseason. Leads all Reds' minor league players in HRs with 18 and he missed several games with a hand injury. Impressive last month for him for sure.
Plus, the Reds invested a third-round pick on Soto (supplemental third round) and higher draft picks always get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to protecting/not protecting a player. With him it's a moot point though -- he's proven he's too good not to protect.
These threads are sure a lot more lively when the Reds play a day game. It's not quite so lonely tonight.
Soto vaulting up the prospect board!
Can anyone speak to his power potential? I never thought he was seen as a guy with this much power even though most thought he would never stick at SS

Braves are making noise in the late innings and now trail 9-6 in the 9th with 2 outs.
Daryl Thompson not looking very good at the moment.
