Apologies for my hiatus. Here are the reports for yesterdays games, August 17.
Scranton/W-B 7, Louisville 3
Former 27th overall pick in the ’96 draft, A.J. Zapp went 3-3 with a solo homerun for the Bats in their 4-run loss.
Jim Serrano got the start for the Bats, going 5 innings, allowing 6 runs on 10 hits. He walked 2 and struck out 5. Despite the rough outting, the 29 year old pitcher still has a 3.81 era in 9 starts this season.

LF Jeremiah Piepkorn went 2-5 with a homerun, 2 runs scored, and 2 runs batted in. I have conflicting stats on Piepkorn. It appears that he has 22 homeruns and 82 runs batted in this season. (Another site has him at 19 and 69)
C John Purdom went 2-5 with 2 doubles, a run scored, and 3 runs batted in.
Finally, DH Trevor Lawhorn went 2-5 with a triple, homerun, 2 runs scored and 2 rbis.
Gulf Coast League

36th round draft pick by the Reds last season, T.J. Johnson, pitched an inning of scoreless relief last night. On the season, Johnson is yet to allow a run in 7 appearances thus far.
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
