Toles dispatches Reginatto in Hot Rods' MWL batting title race

While Mobile's Justin Greene took a knee (and Montgomery's Omar Luna was going to do the same last year), two Bowling Green Hot Rods dueled it out on the final day.

Leonardo Reginatto finished 3-for-4 with a solo home run, three RBIs and two runs scored in a 10-2 win over Lake County.

And Andrew Toles admired him from the dugout.

Toles stood his ground with a .3256 batting average to win the Midwest League's hitting crown. Reginatto's challenge fell short at .3252.

Toles, who finished second in steals and had a league-high 16 triples, is the first batting champion in Hot Rods history.

I don't know if this applies here, but there's a lesson to be learned: Be nice to thy official scorer.
