Louisville lost 13-0. Box Score

  • Cricket noises.

Game Notes

The Bats were one hit-batter in the ninth inning away from having a perfect game thrown against them. The pitching didn’t do much better as all three pitchers allowed at least three runs and walked more batters than they struck out. It was not a good evening for Louisville, but that’s what makes baseball the best, they get to go out tomorrow and right the ship.

Devin Lohman got things started with a walk in the top of the inning and moved to second on a sac bunt by Ray Chang. A wild pitch moved him over to third. The next pitch was a fastball at the knees that Yorman Rodriguez lined back up the middle for an RBI single to break the scoreless tie. Shane Dyer took over for the bottom of the inning and ran into some troubles, walking the leadoff hitter. The Braves took a chance and tried stealing second base, but a strong throw by Chris Berset sent him back to the dugout for the first out. The next hitter blooped a single in just between the second baseman and right fielder. The next hitter hit a hard grounder up the middle that Dyer missed grabbing as it went through his legs by no more than an inch or two and put runners on first and second with one out. Dyer clamped down and on the next pitch got a perfect grounder to shortstop that turned into a game ending double play.
