Brewers Hope to Keep Hot Bats Going

Posted: Updated:
The Helena Brewers currently have three players in the top ten in batting average, including league leader Dustin DeMuth who's batting a scorching .444. But he says he doesn't even pay attention to those numbers yet.

"No not really in my mind right now," admits DeMuth. "Just trying to get it as high as I can and get as many hits as I can. So I'm not really playing the numbers game right now. I'm just attacking fastballs and looking to get into good hitters counts. Be ready for their pitch and when you get your pitch you've got to hit it.

"The big thing in this organization is hunting fast balls and getting up counts," said Brewers catcher Greg McCall, "and trying to get into those up counts and making sure you get your pitch that you want to hit. Like I said, nothing special really."
