    Glad to see Valaika have a good game, after a particularly rough start to the season. I want him to heat up and win the SS job in Cincinnati next year.

    Big night for Logan, his triple was a 3 run job that put the Mudcats in front 4-1. 1-2 with 3 RBIs, a run scored, and 2 walks is a pretty darn good night.

    I agree w you on Valaika, but so far he has looked lost in AAA. I hope last night was a sign to come.
