In case you missed it Friday night, when the Reds beat the Cardinals 3-2, there was a standard 8-4 double play turned by the good guys.

Seriously, plays like that one are not all that rare for center fielder Billy Hamilton and his teammates. He leads National League outfielders with 10 assists this season, and the Reds outfielders as a group lead the league with 44 assists all together.

Friday night was a good night for Hamilton.

He made sure it was good for fans, too.
