Re: Minor League Updates: Monday 4/29/2013
Louisville is hosting the Iron Pigs of Lehigh Valley.
Dan Corcino with a solid outing tonight that should help allay some fears. He went six innings and only allowed one run (earned) on six hits. He walked just one batter and struck out five.
Neftali Soto has hit his second roundtripper of the season. He is 3 for 3 on the night so far to push his average up over the .300 mark. He has scored twice and driven two runs home. Billy Hamilton has doubled in four trips to the plate and stolen base number 15. Kris Negron has a solo blast.
Louisville leads it by a 5-2 margin. They have runners on the corner and only one out in the bottom of the seventh. Neftali Soto is at the dish. Henry Rodriguez is picked off and subsequently caught stealing. Hamilton scores on the plate. Soto doubles, his fourth hit of the night. He is now hitting .313 and OPSing .837. 6-2 Bats.
Kevin Whalen pitches an effective eighth, retired the I-Pigs on just nine pitches. Whalen goes ahead with the two-inning save.
Louisville wins 6-2.
Neftali Soto - 4-4, 2B, HR, 2RS, RBI. Strong candidate.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
