Louisville Bats vs. Toledo Mud Hens (International League)
Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY: Back at the Bats the day before Memorial Day. A great time of year for baseball, but we keep battling rain almost every game so far this season. A little rain delay pushed this game back a bit, but we were ready to go at the first pitch. The Bats were playing the Mud Hens, so we were sporting our Tigers gear for this one.
On to the game, and as it’s been a rough season for the Bats, this wasn’t a rough game. Louisville exploded for six runs in the fourth inning to salt this one away. Christian Colon went 5-5 with three RBI’s to be the hero of this one. Nick Longhi also added two RBI’s, going 3-4 to pitch in. On the bump, Keury Mella earned the win, pitching 5.1 innings and giving up five runs. Alex Powers got the save. Final: Bats 7, Mud Hens 5.
Louisville Bats vs. Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (International League)
Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY: Still very far behind, but this game was toward the end of the season when the Bats held an autograph session before the game. Always a highlight of the season for us, so I bought Brian a baseball and we hit the field. The photos sort of speak for themselves!
On to the game, not a great one for the home team. Louisville left a big goose egg on the board, but a couple of players had a good game.
