Drew Anderson hit his 3rd homerun of the season and went 2-3 with a run scored and 2 rbis to lead the Bats to the win. Chris Dickerson also went 2-3 and scored a run, drove in a run, and added a double. Luis Bolivar added an rbi of his own.
Daryl Thompson got the start and was his usual brilliant self. Thompson improved to 2-0 in Louisville by going 7 innings, allowing 1 run on 6 hits and no walks while striking out 6. At 2 levels, Daryl has allowed 13 earned run in 75.1 innings pitched this season.
In game 1 of the doubleheader, Eric Eymann was a perfect 4-4, hitting 4 singles, scoring a run, and driving in 2. Chris Valaika, Cody Strait, Justin Turner, and B.J. Szymanski had 2 hits each and combined to go 8-15 with 3 rbis, 5 runs scored, and a double.
I mentioned all offense in game 1 because in game 2, the Lookouts were no-hit! Travis Wood pitched well, but received no help. Wood went 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5. (*Keep in mind that doubleheaders consist of just 7 innings, not 9 in the minors)
The Reds scored 4 runs in the 3rd inning and never looked back. Jose Castro, Chris Heisey, and Jacob Kahaulelio each recorded 2 hits in the game. Castro and Justin Tordi hit their first homeruns of the season. Heisey added a double and 2 runs scored and Kahaulelio had a double, triple, rbi, and run scored.
Alexander Smit improved to 5-4 by allowing 1 run on 6 hits in 6 innings pitched. He walked 2 and struck out 8.
The pitching in this one was bad for the Dragons. Even Joseph Krebs, who had been pretty solid this season, was roughed up. Krebs gave up 3 runs on 7 hits in 3 innings pitched. Coming into the game, Krebs had only allowed 5 earned runs in 26.2 innings pitched.
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
