Watching Tony Cingrani so the updates may be both slow and infrequent.
Louisville - Pedro Villareal has pitched three scoreless frames without giving up a you-know-what.
Jason Donald is 2-2. He has scored twice and driven in one. He has a single and gone deep. Neftali Soto has a hit and scored a run. Mike Hessman has driven in a run. Henry Rodriguez double and ribeyed. Bats lead 3-0.
Neither team got a hit in the fourth. Still 3 zip.
Villareal gives up a couple singles and a couple of runs in the fifth. 3-2 Louisville. Villareal gives up 3 runs in 6 innings. Good job. It is all tied up at 3 in the 8th.
Jose "RMOS' Diaz pitched a scoreless seventh. Clay Hensley worked a scoreless eighth. Closer Kevin Whalen came on in the ninth and yielded the go-ahead run. Bats up in the bottom of the ninth trailing by one. Mike MacDougal came on and got the third out, making his Bats' debut. MacDougal is a youthful 36.
Hamilton walks with one out and promptly steals second. He still stands there with two down. Woohoo! Neftali Soto's third hit on the night ties things up. Yes!!
