Minor League Updates Thursday 6/06/2013
Norfolk at Louisville.
Bats took a quick 1-zip lead in the second. Phipps doubled and was driven in by Burriss, who had singled. Negron also has a double.
Daniel Corcino quickly gave that run back and more, surrendering 4 in the top of the third.
Bats trail 4-1.
Burriss doubles and Corky sends him home with a line single. 4-2 now after four. And Corcino gives that one back as well in the top of the fifth. An HBP and two singles lead to a run. Runners on the corner with two outs as the Bats pitching coach heads out to the mound. 5-2 Norfolk.
Pitching change. Arredondo on in relief. Corcino's line: 4.2IP 10H 5R 5ER 2BB 3K. A well-rested Arredondo ends the rally by striking out the first batter he sees on three pitches.
Soto doubles, Burriss (3-3) singles, sac fly. Bats hanging around, trailing 5-3. Burriss started the season 0-24. Since that point on (including today) he is batting .291.
The combination of Arredondo and Whelan get slapped around for four runs in the top of the seventh.
Burriss goes 4-4. Corky Miller pitches two innings of spotless relief. 6 up, 6 down. 6 fly balls. Phipps and Negron each stroke a single and a double.
Bats lose 9-3.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
