Alejo Lopez homered for the second consecutive game for Louisville as he extended his career best total to six on the season, but Louisville lost their final home game of the year.

The Louisville Bats lost 9-4. Box Score

Game Notes

The Bats lost their starting pitcher for the day as Reiver Sanmartin is being called up on Monday to make the start for the Cincinnati Reds against Pittsburgh. That led to Jacques Pucheu to getting the spot start call up and it didn’t go as well as hoped as Toledo scored 5 runs in the 1st inning on 7 hits – including 2 home runs.

Alejo Lopez homered for the second straight day. He now has 6 home runs on the season. They’ve come in 3 series. He homered twice in a series in mid-June against Toledo, twice in a series against St. Paul the first week of August, and now twice this week against Toledo. The 6 home runs represents a career best in a season for Lopez, topping the 4 that he hit back in 2017 with Billings – though those came in just 67 games played.

Louisville will have Monday and Tuesday off before they hit the road to play their final series of the year – a 5-game set in Columbus against the Clippers.

The DSL Reds had the day off.

The DSL Reds will begin their final week of the season on Monday.

    Lopez should join Sanmartin tomorrow to the Reds with Cabrera getting DFA’d. Takes care of the necessary roster spot for Sanmartin. Still don’t understand why Ashcraft wasn’t called up to make a couple of starts for the Bats. The only thing I can think of is limit of innings pitched.

      How common is it for a pitcher to make two jumps in the same season? Pretty uncommon, I suspect.

    How is Dauri Moereto looking at the major league level? I know he’s been very effective but I’m just wondering has there been a luck component or has his stuff looked really good?

        Was wondering what the eye test said but I haven’t got to watch any of those games. But yes, obviously super small sample size. That being said, proud that he’s come up and staved off the nerves to do well in just those two innings. Like we’ve all been saying he should have gotten the call a while ago based on his insane production in the minors.
