Dumatrait shines

The best pitcher at Louisville so far? Phil Dumatrait. He went seven innings, allowing one earned run on three hits, in the Bats' 4-2 win over Columbus Wednesday. He's 2-0 with a 0.71 ERA. He's the 25-year-old left-hander the Reds got in the Scott Williamson deal in 2003 from Boston. He, Homer Bailey and Bobby Livingston give the Reds three good starting pitching prospects in Triple-A. It's been a while since the Reds could say that.

The Bats beat Chris Michalak, by the way. Shortstop, that's right shortstop, Mark Bellhorn went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI.

A while? I can't remember when that's EVER been the case! One or two starting prospects, sure. Relievers? Lots! But three decent starters? Hmm, how 'bout LaCoss, Liebrandt, and Pastore, about 30 years ago!
