The Cincinnati Reds top prospect Billy Hamilton is scheduled to make his first career start this evening against the Houston Astros. He is batting ninth and playing centerfield and Shin-Soo Choo moves to left.
Since his call-up, Hamilton has appeared in seven games, stolen five bases, and scoring four runs. He has three official at-bats but has yet to record a hit.
Hamilton will be eager to get that first career hit.
"Before I went in there, they were just like, 'Breathe, that's the main thing.' That helped me out a lot," Hamilton said after his first career at-bat. "Of course, I was a little bit nervous, but not as nervous as I thought I'd be."
With just 10 games remaining, including the game this evening, Hamilton will try and help Cincinnati stay firmly in the second wildcard position in the National League.
