    Friday 7/20/2012 Minor-League Updates

    Pedro Villarreal took his lumps tonight: 4 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K. Travis Webb provided no relief. Louisville trails 9-0 in the fifth.

    Bats have two hits, both belonging to Denis Phipps, both doubles.

    Hamilton has a swipe and an error. Beau Mills is 2-2. Pensacola trails 4-2 after three.

    Corcino's pitching. Two of the Mobile runs are unearned. (If it's not a Mobile run, is it Stationary?)

    Hamilton and LaMarre made errors on the same play, allowing both BayBears runs in. Bad luck for Corcino, not that he's pitched that great outside of said misfortune.

    James Allen is faring better than the other starters: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 7 K. Dayton's tied 1-1. Yorman is 2-3.

    Jonathan (the team) Moscot has thrown two scoreless for Billings and Jeff Gelalich has doubled and scored for a 1-0 lead.

    Now that's the way to break a deadlock. Dragons score 6 in the bottom of the eighth to win 7-1. The inning featured back-to-back bunt singles by Yorman (3 hits) and Wright. Buckley also had three hits. Carlos Gonzalez pitched the last two innings in relief of James Allen.

    Moscot is done after two, replaced by Joel (Fender) Bender, who hopefully does not drive the team bus. Bender has somehow given up five hits without a run in two innings. (Just like a Fender Bender--no real damage). It's 2-0 Billings.

    Bakersfield was on the cusp of defeat, but tied it in the 9th on a 2-out, bases loaded balk of all things. Heading to extra innings tied at 8.

    And it turns out the Blaze wasted their time tying it up. Brackman gives up a 2 run shot in the bottom of the 11th, Bakersfield loses 10-8.

    I agree. Billy's ability to take a walk and work a count and the progression he's made year to year in this area is as impressive as his base running ability.

    However, I have a sinking feeling he's just days away from leaving the organization.

    At this point I don't see the Reds moving Hamilton without getting something major back in return. And by major I don't mean Revere, Span, Willingham, Quentin etc... I'm talking about the next level up from them. And I'm not sure if there is anyone on the block who could be that guy.

    If the Reds move him it will either be for a good player they can keep for a couple of years, or a game changing rental (ie Cliff Lee a few years ago). The only potential guy I could see as a rental (and I don't think they'd move him) is David Wright.

    Upton would be a game-changer.

    Extremely limited sample, but, yeah, the 1:1 K:BB ratio is certainly nice to see, as is the power. So far, the leap to AA has been little problems for the Reds' best prospect.
