4/5 Game Review

Louisville won 5-4. Box Score

  • Chris Valaika went 2-4 with a solo HR (1).
  • Neftali Soto went 1-4 with a run.
  • Danny Dorn went 1-4 with a 2 run HR (1).
  • Paul Janish went 2-4 with 2 solo HR’s (2).
  • Jeff Francis allowed 2 earned in 6 innings with a walk and 3 strikeouts.
  • Ron Mahay and JJ Hoover each threw a perfect inning with 2 strikeouts.

Game Notes

Danny Dorn’s home run was an absolute bomb. The Bats caught a break in the 8th inning when replay showed that Columbus hit a 3-run home run that was ruled as a 2 run double. That would have given them the lead 5-4, but instead just tied the game at four. The Bats took the lead in the top of the 9th on the second home run by Paul Janish of the night.

Game notes

Billy Hamilton once again has as many home runs in his career that have gone over the fence as he has that have stayed in the park, three each. In the 8th inning he reached base on an E1 as the pitcher missed the catch while covering first. He then stole second and advanced to third when the catcher threw the ball into center. The next pitch went to the backstop and he scored.
