Louisville closed out their home stand (and final home game of the year) with a win. They scored three runs in the 1st inning and didn’t look back. Home runs from Aramis Garcia and Michael Papierski sealed the win that was never in doubt until the top of the 9th when Nashville scored three runs to make it a game once again, but the game ended with the tying run standing on second base.
Ben Lively had 73 strikeouts in 62.0 innings when he went on the injured list in June. Since returning from the injured list he has struck out 6 batters in 15.0 innings in five games. He hasn’t walked a batter in his last three starts, covering 12.1 innings.
Randy Wynne moved back to the bullpen after spending two weeks on the injured list with a foot injury. He’s thrown 7.0 shutout innings of relief and allowed just three hits since the return.
The Bats have Sunday off. They will begin a 3-game series in Gwinnett on Monday that will be the final series of the year.
