Blaze Outfielder in Home Run Race

A Bakersfield Blaze outfielder is edging closer to a big payday.

Tyler O’Neill is three home runs behind two other players for the Joe Bauman Trophy, which is presented to the minor league home run leader. The winner of that award gets $200 for each dinger.

O’Neill is sitting at 26 with one month of the season left.
