Bats get Clipped

Louisville Bats vs. Columbus Clippers (International League)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  Another fun night of baseball, this time back in the ‘Ville.  This was the last game my dad would be at on this visit.  He plans on coming back next month, though, for some more minor league ball and the ACC Championships.  It was a beautiful night, as the weather just seemed to get better as the weekend went along.  Brian played on the playground most of the game, but was happy to spend some time with his papa, too.

This was a good game, with the Bats down, but certainly not out.  Louisville was lead offensively by catcher Rob Brantly, who went 3-6 with four RBI’s, including a 2-run homer in the seventh and a game tying double in the eighth.  Jesse Winker helped out by going 2-4 with an RBI and run scored, and Philip Ervin went 2-5 with two runs scored.

On the mound, Jackson Stephens got the start for Louisville.  In four innings pitched, he gave up five runs while striking out four.  Luckily the offense  and bullpen bailed him out, so he didn’t get the decision.  Evan Mitchell ended up taking the loss, though, after giving up the winning run in the 10th.  He pitched two innings and gave up three hits.  Final in 10:  Bats 8, Clippers 9.

Another fun night, with it being capped off with Brian getting to meet Jake the Diamond Dog.  We saw him a couple of times last season, as he acted as bat boy and brought water to the umpires. He was hot and tired by the end of the night, though.  We look forward to our next game, which will probably be right back here at Louisville Slugger Field.
