Mired in a 3 for 36 slump, Cincinnati OF Austin Kearns was demoted to Louisville yesterday.

Kearns’ chair from Sharper Image, however, was assigned to the Midwest League’s Dayton Dragons.

Junior hit a pair of HR’s in the Reds’ 10-6 win over the Orioles yesterday, giving the chronically injured center fielder 40 RBI’s in his last 40 games. More remarkably, Rich Aurilla homered and drove in 4 runs, which if nothing else, should lead to daily drug testing, if not confiscation of all balls used in this game.
