Let the record show that Billy Hamilton was finally caught stealing in the 14th attempt of his MLB career. It happened today, when the New York Mets’ Juan Centeno (no, never heard of him either) cut Hamilton down at second base in the fifth inning of Cincinnati’s 1-0 loss. Former Taylorsville High star Hamilton made another start in center field and hit leadoff, going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. He is batting .389 in 18 at-bats and has tallied nine runs to go with his 13 bags. He reportedly has not been guaranteed a postseason roster spot for the Reds, who are 4 games back of first-place St. Louis in the National League Central and destined for a wild card.
