Game notes

The Bats trailed by 3 in the bottom of the 9th but were able to push 3 runs across to send the game to extras. Scott Carroll found an unfortunate time to allow his first runs of the year though as he walked 3 and gave up 3 hits in the 10th for 3 runs. The Bats were able to get one across in the bottom of the frame, but it wasn’t enough. Dioner Navarro reached base all 5 times he went to the plate.

  • Brian Pearl threw 1.1 perfect innings with a strikeout.

Game notes

Devin Lohman raised his average to .300 on the year with his three hit game. Statistically, he just seems like a very different hitter since he was demoted from Dayton last year. He has really turned things on and put up some strong numbers. Travis Mattair has a team leading three home runs on the season. John Holdzkom was hitting the upper 90’s with his fastball during the start.
