From the Bats email report:
In the first game of a makeup DH yesterday:
Kelly (4-2) surrendered six runs on nine hits in four innings of work. He struck out two and walked one in taking the loss.
Louisville (25-28) jumped on the board with a run in the second inning when Wily Mo Pena ˜ who began a Major League rehab assignment with Louisville on May 30 for a strained left quadriceps muscle ˜ jacked the first pitch he saw from Indy starting RHP Bryan Bullington over the wall in straight-away center to cut the Indians‚ lead to 5-1.
That’s Kelly’s second straight bad outing.
Indianapolis Indians (32-21) wanted to test Chris Denorfia under pressure. The 24-year-old passed with flying colors, going 2-for-3 with a double and a walk-off single in the seventh to lift the Bats (26-28) to a 4-3 victory in a double-header night cap before 7,813 fans at Louisville Slugger Field.
This is the second game of the DH.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
