    Hamilton draws his third walk of the game. They're not holding him on, but he's not running.

    Vasquez walks to load the bases.

    D'Anna bounces out to finally end the top of the ninth. Fifteen men to the plate. Ten hits. Nine runs.

    Chris Joyce makes short work of the bottom of the 9th--his second perfect inning--and Bakersfield wins 14-9.

    Hamilton now has a 14% BB rate to go along with his 16% K rate. For the year, his obp is over .425, his SB rate is over 84% and his slugging is over .450.

    Last ten games, he's hitting .400, with 11 BBs and 6 Ks. He's also stolen at least one base in nine of the past 10 games.

    In June's 20 games (97 ABs), Hamilton has the following numbers:

    .370/ 21 BB/ 13 Ks/ 33 SB/ 5 CS /.505 OBP/ .452 SLG/ .957 OPS

    So, to sum up:

    Great at the beginning of the year, struggled as pitchers adjusted, even better now that he's adjusted back.
    Showing signs of figuring out high K rate AND improving his eye at the plate.

    There have been some lean times for some of the Reds farm clubs this year, but I get the feeling it may just be growing pains. I think that come next season, there may just be some pretty decent talent at all levels.

    The AZL Reds comes up with two in the bottom of the first. Rahier doubled, moved to second on a PB and scored on a Denis Phipps single. Lutz reached base and Phipps scored the second run on an error by the Padre 3B.

    The Padres came back with a run of their own that scored on an error by Clarke. He did strick out his third batter in two innings.

    The verry essence of Small sample Size, but Beau Mills seems to like his new surroundings.

    Through two games:

    5-8, 2 R, 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI, BB, .625/.667/1.500/2.167

    That might be a bit tricky to maintain though.

    The AZl games are very slow in updating and I'm getting ready to hit the sack.

    Reds 1B Ponciano Flores singled leading off the bottom of the 2nd, but was thrown out stealing. The next two hitters went down in order. Both failed to score in the third too. Still 2-1 Reds, heading to the 4th.

    Good to have Mitch Clarke back. He showed quite a bit of promise last year in Dayton, but had been on the shelf until tonight's start for the AZL Reds. He went two innings and gave up one run on one hit, no walks, three strikeouts.

    Now, about Jonathan Perez. He pitched tonight, as well, and got knocked around severely, which is why the Reds now trail 9-2. But who is this guy? Last year, the Reds signed a 16-year-old Venezuelan pitcher for $825,000. So, apparently, this is not that guy. This guy is 21 years old and from Santo Domingo. So either there's been some weird mistake or the Reds have two pitchers named Jonathan Perez.

    Evidently Mitch Clarke only went the first two innings/

    2.0 1 1 1 0 3 0 4.50 (WP)

    Even though Clarke walked no one, he did have a WP that allowed his only run.

    He was relieved by Jonathan Perez who made it through a scoreless 4rd, but wasn't so luck in the 4th.

    His final line:

    1.2 5 7 7 3 1 0 37.80 (Ouch!) (2 WP)


    He was relieved by Richard McCaffery who got the last out of the4th and finished pitched the fifth, giving up another run of his own in the 4th.

    Other than a BB to Lutz, the Reds did nothing in the bottom of the 4th or 5th the Pads went ton in order in their half of the 5th. The 8-run 4th now puts the Padres up 8-2 going to the top of the sixth.

    McCaffery retires the Padres 1-2-3 for the second straight inning. He's now retired 7 in a row.

    The Vets get one back in the bottom of the 6th. Phipps triples and Lutz follows him to the plate with a double. Now 9-3 Padres going to the 7th.
