Louisville got things started in the 1st inning when Steve Selsky doubled in Yorman Rodriguez. They would pad the lead in the 3rd inning when Hernan Iribarren tripled in Ramon Cabrera and Yorman Rodriguez followed with an RBI single to make it 3-0. Chris Dominguez made it 4-0 in the 4th with a solo home run. That would seem to be all that the Bats would need as David Holmberg tossed 6.2 strong innings, allowing just a run with six strikeouts, but the bullpen ran into troubles over the final two innings of the game. Those struggles made the solo home run by Yorman Rodriguez in the bottom of the 8th all that more important as it gave the home team just enough to hold on for the 5-4 win. The win gets Louisville back to the .500 mark at 22-22.
