Louisville 2 – Indianapolis 0

Alvin Colina’s 2 run homerun in the 5th inning provided all the offense the Bats would need and get in this one.  The homerun was Colina’s second of the season and capped off a 2-4 night.  The only other Bats player with 2 hits in the game was ….(drumroll)…. Jay Bruce!  Bruce went 2-4, but did strikeout twice.

Justin Mallett picked up his first win of the season by going 5 scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits and walking 2 while striking out 5.  Gary Majewksi, Danny Herrera, and Jon Adkins combined to pitch 4 scoreless innings of relief, allowing just 2 hits combined to secure the win. 

West Tennessee 6 – Chattanooga 4

Justin Turner went 2-4 with a single and 2 run homer.  The homerun was Justin’s first of the season.  He was the only Lookouts player with multiple hits.  Chattanooga managed just 5 hits in the game.

Brevard County 5 – Sarasota 0

    I really appreciate the links straight to each player’s milb.com page, Chris. Nice job on this every day…

    Anyway, I just noticed that Majewski has quietly been very good in his last 10 appearances (14 IP). His ERA overall isn’t great b/c his first 9 IP were pretty bad.

    He also has a very nice groundball rate (ratio of ground/air = about 2).

    Think we’ll get anything productive out of him at the MLB level? I’m still hopeful. He’s only 28 or so I think.

    Oh, also, while I’m here… I’m VERY excited (and intrigued) by Herrera, who is my size or smaller but just keeps getting people out.

    I think he’s gonna be good. Not that I’ve ever seen him pitch before, but when he’s on, I’ll predict some John Franco comparisons will be made (small LHP, very good w/o throwing very hard, some screwball-like action).

    But dude… come on Danny… is that really how you’re going to look in a baseball cap?? 😉

    Does anyone have any clue as to what is going on with Bailey? His last three outings, including today, have been bad. He has allowed 4+ runs in each of his last 2 starts. I’m wondering if he’s injured or something? He was doing great earlier in the season. This is not good news considering Cueto may need to be sent down too.
