Paul Janish, a shortstop for the Louisville Bats (Reds) broke out of a slump in a big way, going 4-4 with six RBIs and just missing the cycle on an official scorer’s decision that took away a triple. See, we CAN write about the Bats without mentioning Jay Bruce or Homer Bailey (oops). [Milb.com]
That’s it for AAA news. I’ll be attending a West Virginia Power (Brewers) vs. Delmarva Shorebirds (Orioles) game this weekend, so look for photos to grace the A-ball news on Monday.
