Louisville at Syracuse:
Chad Reineke on the mound tonight. He has yielded two runs so far in five innings of work. He has allowed five hits, no walks and struck out five.
Nevin Ashley walked and scored on a Billy Hamilton double for the Bats' only run of the game.
2-1 Louisville trails after five.
Felix Perez doubled and tried to score on a Denis Phipps single but was gunned down by the centerfielder.
Louisville wastes a solid effort by Reineke. 6IP 6H 2R 2ER 1BB 5K. Nick Christiani and Zach Duke get roughed up in the eight for four runs to make it a 6-1 deficit. Duke gave up three runs, the first runs of any kind he has allowed in 15 games since being coming to Louisville.
Bats rallied for four of their own in the top of the ninth but fall a run short, losing 6-5.
Perez singled, Ashley singled and Donald singled to score a run. Negron then walked to juice the bases. Hamilton plated a pair with his second double of the evening. A ground out made it 6-5 with the tying run on third. But they could not get him home.
Hamilton - 2 for 5. Two doubles. 3 RBI.
Perez - 2 for 4. A single. A double. 1 RS.
Ashley - 1 for 3. A single. A walk. 2 RS.
Donald - 2 for 3. 2 singles. A walk. 1 RS. 1 RBI.
