  1. It should be pointed out in the LOuisville game that Billy Hamilton through a perfect one bounce strike to nail a runner at home from centerfield. He also had his 14th stolen base (the Reds entire team has 8).

  2. Only two players in Louisville (Phipps and Felix Perez) are currently rocking an OBP north of .300. Gulp.

    • @TC: That would be a very welcome surprise for the Reds farm system. The Reds had Reineke pegged for the bullpen until Gallaraga went down, but he has really stepped his game up this season. Let’s hope it continues.
