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…

Louisville Bats vs. Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (International League)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  Bri and I back at Slugger Field, but this time for more Bats baseball.  This game they were hosting the Iron Pigs, which Brian thought was hilarious, and kept making jokes about all night. Yep, that’s my guy…

Nachos and cheese for that cheesy grin!

It was another beautiful night,  as Robert Stephenson took the mound for the Bats. He threw a perfect four innings, giving up no hits or runs.  The Louisville offense came alive in the fifth inning, however, starting out with a Brandon Dixon solo home run.  Hernan Iribarren would later smack a two-run single, extending his team’s lead to 3-0.

Brian and I needed a little snack during the game, again, and this time went with some Kizito cookies.  The cookie lady walks around the ballpark with a basket of cookies on her head, and it’s hard to say no!  The cookies are really good and priced right, also, which helps to feed hungry kids.

Nothing beats a Kizito chocolate chip cookie

Brian also got a foul ball, and we picked one up in the gift shop with the retro logo on it.  It gave us something to throw around at the game, anyway:

The wheels fell of a bit for the Bats in the eight inning, though, as the Iron Pigs tapped relief pitcher Kyle McMyne for four runs on four hits to take the lead.  Louisville tied the game at the bottom of the inning, after Phillip Ervin’s base hit that scored Stuart Turner.  With the game tied 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth, Sebastian Elizade hit an infield single to bring home Zach Vincej for the walk-off win! FINAL:  Bats 5, Iron Pigs 4.

Another fun game with Bri.  We had another busy week in baseball, and another Bats game the next weekend, so stay tuned.  I’ll leave off with a pic of Bri and Buddy Bat:
