Columbus 9, Louisville 6

Some 24 year-old, third baseman, named Edwin Encarnacion (Rangers #9 – 2000) went 3 for 3 with a HR and 2 RBI.  Since his demotion he is really struggling hitting just .413/.426/.674.   I would probably wait until he gets that SLG% up near .800 before I bring him back up.  Sometimes I hate following this organization.

23 year-old, playing left field again, Joey Votto went 2 for 3 with a BB, a HR, and 4 RBI.  He is hitting .293/.410/.473, and .403./.482/.611 in May.
