Columbus is at Louisville.
Tony Cingrani is on the mound for the Bats and has an easy 1-2-3 first. Billy Hamilton leads off the bottom of the first with a single to left. And then proceeds to steal second (27) on the first pitch. He advances to third on a ground ball to short and scores on a Felix Perez sac fly. The quintessential Billy Hamilton. 1-0 Bats.
Cingrani walks three in the second but no damage is done as he strikes out the side as well. Cingrani with by far his worst start of the season. He gave up one earned run. He is through for the night. 5IP 3H 1R 1ER 5BB 9K. 0.37 ERA/
Not much doing for the Bats' bats. Burriss and Perez have added singles. And as I type that Louisville plates two runs in the fifth. Burriss reaches second on an error and scores on a Corky Miller single. Ray Chang doubles Miller to third and Hamilton's sac fly brings him home. 3-1 Bats.
