Votto 2-3 with a walk
Dickerson 1-2 with a homerun
They always do that with the bunting. First and no outs, second and no outs, three-run lead, tie game, doesn't matter. I've taken to calling it "Sweetball" in my blog's Tuesday Minors reports.
Pretty much the only Louisville hitters that I don't think I've seen bunt are Joey Votto and maybe Mark Bellhorn.
