    Corcino's trying to keep up with Francis: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R. Rodriguez and Guzman, who both went 4-5 last night, have two hits tonight, along with Fleury. Guzman's HR is the big blow so far in a 3-0 Pensacola lead in the sixth.

    Quezada gave up a 3-run HR to the third batter he faced and Dayton trails 3-0 in the third.

    Francis gave up a HR in the eighth. Judy gave up two singles in the ninth but got out of it on a DP ball to Valaika. Bats win 2-1.

    Not only HenryR, Guzman and Fleury, but LaMarre, Fellhauer, Yordanys Perez and Miguel Rojas all have two hits, as well. Pensacola added 4 in the seventh to go up 7-0.

    Edit: Make it 5 in the seventh. 8-0.

    Corcino left after 5.1 innings, 3 H, 3 BB, 3 K.

    Pensacola won 8-2.

    Dayton lost 3-0. After another scoreless inning, Dan Jensen's ERA remains at 0.00 (14 IP).

    Hamilton led off with a single and stole second, but was thrown out trying to steal third. Vidal doubled and scored in the second to give Bakersfield a 1-0 lead, with Lotzkar pitching.

    I'm not sure I remember a Red's prospect ever making quite the mockery of a circuit as Slidin' Billy is of the California League.

    3-3 so far in the 6th tonight, with 2 runs, an RBI, and 2 more steals (26 on the year). As noted above, he did get thrown out trying to swipe third base in the 1st. I suspect he just wanted Modesto to feel they were doing well.

    What Tony Cingrani did last year in Billings is up there. When Jay Bruce was the age that Billy Hamilton is, he was hitting .364 in AAA with a .630 slugging.

    Yeah, Bruce was certainly up there. Adam and Austin in Dayton were fun also.

    Billy walked in the 8th by the way, but there is someone on second (and now Vidal walks to load the bases), so no more steals sadly.

    Blaze win 7-0.

    Again trying to console Modesto, Hamilton fouled out to the 3rd baseman in the 9th.

    Lutz was 2-5 with a double and 2 RBI.

    Lotzkar pitched 5.2 innings for the win (3-0) giving up 3 hits and 3 walks with 4 Ks.

    Lotzkar now at a 1.25 ERA through 21.2 innings in Bakersfield. That's got to be very encouraging... our prospects are having all sorts of success.

    IIRC, Gary Redus laughed his way through Billings back in the early 80's to the tune of .453 BA or something like that.

    .462

    Long before the popularization of esoteric numbers, Pete Rose, as manager of the Reds, was asked one day who he thought had the highest percentage of fly balls in baseball. Without blinking, he said, "Gary Redus." He was right. Or at least, that's how I remember it.
