In case you hadn't heard about Billy Hamilton when he was busy stealing everything in sight down in the minors, well--he's doing it in the Show now as well.
The trick for a guy like Hamilton is going to be getting on base, but lucky for him the Astros were willing to accommodate. On the night he went 3-4 with two walks so he had plenty of opportunity to steal in the 13 inning game.
The speed demon got his first MLB start Wednesday night against the Houston Astros and made sure that he made an impression on fans by stealing not just one or two bags. The man stole four!
Now I am sure the Reds would like to turn his work into a few more runs--Hamilton scored twice--but that was just his first start. He'll have plenty of chances to score more.
