Bats thwart the Knights

Louisville Bats vs. Charlotte Knights (International League)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  Finally our first Bats game of the season.  It was a little cool, and we had some rain, but nothing that would spoil out fun.  Back with our Sunday seats, also, which we’ve had for a few years now.  It was also Mother’s Day, so there was the ‘pink’ theme to the games.

We had some free baseball from the get go, as the teams finished three innings of Saturday nights game that was suspended due to rain.  The Knights beat the Bats 7-6 in this one, but Louisville would get revenge in game two, as that one would go extra innings.

Christian Colon lead the way for the Bats, going 3-4 with an RBI.  Phillip Ervin added a pair of RBI’s of his own, as well as a run scored.  Anthony Bass ended up with the win for Louisville, pitching the final 1.2 innings, including the 10th.  In the bottom of the 10th, Stuart Turner earned a base on balls, scoring Ervin for the win.  FINAL:  Bats 5, Knights 4.

Good to be back at Slugger Field, we’d be back the follow week for more baseball and rain…
