Delino DeShields was 2x4 with an RBI, and stole two more bases to take (I think) sole possession of 3rd place in all of minor league baseball with 45 steals, only about 120 behind Willie Mays-Hayes in the Reds' organization. Justin Gominsky was also 2x4 with a double and an RBI. Matt Duffy was 1x3 with a walk. And Jay Austin is back! He was 1x4 with an RBI, stolen base, and an outfield assist.
