Dayton starts a 3 game series against South Bend tonight. If they can sweep the series, they will take a 2 game lead for a shot at the playoffs and also take over the tie breaker in the chance that the two teams tie at the end of the year. If they win 2 of the 3 I believe South Bend will still have the tie breaker.

The Reds called up Pedro Viola from AAA. The Bats are going to the playoffs, but man has that team been torn apart over the past month and a half.

Rick Sweet won the International League Manager of the Year Award for the 2nd straight season. Use when documenting to get better conversion experience from one file to another.

Justin Lehr was also named the International League Most Valuable Pitcher as he went 13-3 between Lehigh Valley and Louisville. While I don’t expect him to continue doing what he has done at the MLB level, how great of a pick up was he for the organization? Not only has he helped Homer Bailey turn things around some, he helped the Bats to the playoffs and he has helped the Reds late in the season in the rotation.

Yonder Alonso was named the 20th best hitting prospect by Project Prospect. They question how much power Alonso truly has.
