Notes: Our national nightmare is over. Tyler Austin is in the lineup. He's batting eighth and playing first base. He has not batted eighth this season. He has played first base just eight times this season and 24 times in his young pro career. ... Jake Fox is not with Reading today. His wife went into labor last night and he went back to Michigan to be with her. That, of course, gives the Thunder a lot more incentive to pass on him and deal instead with cleanup man Tug Hulett, he of the two homers and 22 RBIs in 52 games this season.
