Bolivar leads off the game with a double for Louisville. Valaika struckout. I'm very surprised by the early seasons struggles of Valaika. I saw him down in spring training with the Reds and he hit the ball hard in every atbat. He hit well to all parts of the field. After he was reassigned to Louisville, he continued crushing the ball, it just hasn't carried over to the regular season yet. I think he'll be fine, though. IIRC, he's always been a bit of a slow starter.
I miss Adam Dunn.
