Louisville 4, Durham 2

23 year-old Venezuelan William Bergolla went 3 fo 4 with an RBI. For the season Bergolla is hitting .281/.305/.377.

Another refugee from the Jim “leather pants” Bowden era, Dane Sardinha went 2 for 3 with his first 2B of the year. The 27 year-old Hawaiin native is hitting .181/.213/.236. Unfortunately for Dane his minor league career is littered with years like this.


Chattanooga 5, Huntsville 4

22 year-old Canadian Joey Votto went 1 for 4 with a solo-HR. Votto, the 2nd round pick in the 2002 draft is hitting .279/.360/.455. For the counting stat fans he has 9 2B, 6 HR, 19 RBI, 20 BB, 37 Ks in 174 plate appearances.


Daytona 7, Sarasota 6

24 year-old Rich Gardner made his 2006 debut. The Reds’ 6th round pick from 2003 went 3 Innings giving up 1 ER, 1 H, and 4 BB. Gardner struck out 3.

23 year-old Drew Anderson a “DOTF” regular, went 1 for 4 with a BB. On the season, the 2nd baseman from THE Ohio State is hitting .305/.372/.518. With a 27 year-old non-prospect Javier Colina the only thing blocking Anderson’s path to Chattanooga, I would think Krivsky would want to see if he can do this in AA.

    Big night for Reds prospects. Hell, even Sardinha made the highlights.
