Billy Hamilton made no progress in his chase for the minor league steals record, but he tripled home the go-ahead run in the seventh inning of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos' 9-2 win over the Biscuits on Sunday.
Hamilton was picked off first base in the third and was part of a double-steal attempt in the fifth. The Biscuits threw out the trail runner at second. By rule (10.07(d) for those scoring at home), Hamilton is not credited with a stolen base.
Hamilton remains at 143 steals between high-Class A Bakersfield and Pensacola. He's two shy of the record set in 1983 by Vince Coleman at Class A Macon.
Beau Mills and David Vidal each homered to highlight a six-run eighth for Pensacola, which moved within two games of the division-leading Biscuits.
