Frazier Scores in Valiant Reds Effort

Former little league hero dropped to eighth in the order.

Making his fifth start in six games for the Cincinnati Reds, Toms River Native Todd Frazier was dropped to eighth in the batting order, Tuesday night.

The former Toms River South Indian went 1-4 in a 3-2 losing effort to the Colorado Rockies at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, and scored in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at two.

Frazier struck out in his at-bat in the fourth on five pitches, but advanced to first base as the final strike was a wild pitch.

He would eventually score on a line drive off the bat of Edgar Renteria.

Frazier would later register his only hit of the night, singling to left field on a 2-1 slider.

He also struck out in the bottom of the eighth, looking, on five pitches, and flied out to center field in his first at-bat in the bottom of the second inning.

The Rockies scored all of their runs through two innings, scoring two runs in the fourth, and one in the fifth.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning, giving Colorado a 2-1 advantage, Dexter Fowler belted an RBI single to center field in the top of the fifth inning.

Frazier is now batting .238 for the season, and is expected to continue to see significant time on the field, due to Scott Rolen -- the regular third basemen -- being place on the disabled list.
