Bits: Billy Hamilton makes debut

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton certainly played a key role in his big league debut Tuesday night, scoring the lone run in a victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Of course, Hamilton did not bat in the game, or play the field, but he entered as a pinch runner for outfielder Ryan Ludwick, quickly stole a base against the great Yadier Molina and came around to score on a Todd Frazier hit, the first time anyone had scored the only run in a 1-0 game in their debut in more than 50 years.
