I will be doing play by play for the Lookouts game tonight since Homer Bailey is pitching. When Huntsville is batting, I will do pitch by pitch updates as much as the announcers will give. The Lookouts batters I will just give whether they got a hit, out, where they hit it...

Good recovery after the long ball. I'm so used to Homer being damn near perfect that it scares me when he gives up the occassional run :spoiled:

Yeah, you cant be perfect every game. I hope Homer can be effective his next few innings. He has been throwing strikes tonight, they have been hitting some that are just right out of the reach of the Lookouts defense. 1 hit went right under a reaching Luis bolivar and another hit bounced in the infield and over the SS and into CF. Just how it goes sometimes. Makes up for those times guys hit line drives right at people.

Votto hit at 2-run homerun in the 7th to give the Lookouts a 5-3 lead.
The homerun was Vottos 20th of the season.

So far Votto is 3 for 4 with a double, homerun and 3 RBIs tonight.

Homer's final line for the night:


IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
5.0 8 3 3 2 4 1 1.30

Chattanooga gave up 5 in the bottom of the 8th to fall behind 8-6. Anderson tied it with a homer in the top of the 9th, but they gave up a run in the bottom to lose 9-8.

Who is this Dirt Ursin? He closed for Dayton for his 3rd save... It looks like his name is Damian, but they call him Dirt. Nice nickname, eh Doug? :D

Sounds like Homer was mixing in a lot more off speed pitches. I rather have him work on those pitches and struggle alittle, then just go out and dominate everyone with his fastball.

Keep useing that changup Homer:thumbup: :thumbup:
