Re: Minor League Updates 5/10/13
Louisville trails 6-2 going into the bottom of the seventh.
As noted, Billy Hamilton has homered twice. Hessman has two singles. Soto and Perez have singled. Also, as noted, Corcino struggled to put up an ugly line: 5IP 9H 6R 5ER 3BB 0K.
As I typed this the Bats are rallying. Burriss singled, Ashley walked, Negron singled, Hamilton singled (bunt-third hit of game) and Henry Rodriguez has singled. Bases are loaded and the Bats trail just 6-4. Soto just popped out, runners holding. Perez follows with a line single to left (.305-second hit of game). 6-5 with still only one out.
A new pitcher comes on and strikes out Hessman and Fellhauer to squash that rally. Strike outs are the same as any other out, or so I have been told.
Hensley pitched two scoreless innings in relief of Corcino. Jumbo Diaz, he of the 0.00 ERA, will come in to pitch the eighth. Diaz pitches a scoreless eighth. Christiani surrenders an insurance run in the ninth. Louisville loses 7-5
Buffalo did something interesting. They brought their closer in in the seventh while they were still leading 6-5, bases loaded, one out. He promptly strikes out two Bats. Then he pitches both the eighth and ninth for his ninth save.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
