The Bats lost last night at home with Walt Jocketty in attendance, but Jake Elmore had three hits in four trips to the plate in front of the general manager. It was a slow start for Elmore when he came over to the Reds organization, but over his last eight games the infielder has hit .367 with two doubles, four walks and has stolen three bases.

Fellow infielder Ray Navaroo also had a good night at the plate in front of Jocketty, going 1-2 with two walks and a run scored. He’s really caught fire the last 14 games, hitting .360 in 54 plate appearances to go with three walks and just four strikeouts. Navarro has raised his average to .302 with the Bats since being promoted at mid-season.

The season is almost over, so it might be a bit too late to just rename this feature the Kyle Waldrop report, but he seems to find himself on it every day and today is no different. Last night Waldrop had half of the Pensacola hits, going 2-4 with a double. The outfielder now has an 11 game hitting streak, with nine of those games being multi-hit games. He’s hit .489 with six doubles, a triple and three home runs in that stretch.

Pensacola starter Tim Adleman may have been given an unfortunate loss on his record as he allowed one run over 7.0 innings pitched with a walk and five strikeouts, but he put together his fourth straight quality outing. The right handed pitcher has a 1.80 ERA in his last 20 innings with just one walk and 16 strikeouts for the Blue Wahoos. Three of those appearances were starts with a relief appearance starting the run on August 16th.

In 649 plate appearances with the Dayton Dragons over the last two seasons Joe Hudson hit four home runs. Last night he hit two homers in Bakersfield, including a walk-off home run to win the game to lead off the ninth inning. It was his fourth homer with Bakersfield in just 39 plate appearances. He’s also added three doubles in that time to post a slugging percentage of .649 in 12 games.

Blaze reliever Jimmy Moran continued his good run of relief appearances, allowing a run overĀ  3.1 innings last night. Over the last two-and-a-half weeks he has posted a 0.93 ERA in 9.2 innings with just one walk and 11 strikeouts. He’s looking to finish the season like he began it, dominating. He posted a 0.93 ERA in April, though he struggled in the middle of the year and is back to dominating in August with a 2.45 ERA.

Argenis Aldazoro won the home run derby that the Mustangs played last night during a game against Missoula. The Mustangs hit four home runs in the first inning and six in the game, but Aldazoro was the only player that hit two. He went 3-6 with the two home runs and he drove in four runs as well. In August he’s hit .358/.371/.684 with eight home runs and 24 RBI in 24 games.
