Louisville got back to .500 last night, beating the Jr. Braves 6-2. Based (ball) God, Corky Miller, went 1-3 with a walk and a solo Fuckblast in the 9th. Mike Hessman hess'd a honkman and hit a double on a 3-4 night. Cool Papa Billy went 1-4 with a walk and swiped his 23rd bag of the year. Chad "Quick Lube" Reineke threw 7 innings of 2-run ball, striking out 3 and walking 1. These recaps are much more fun to write when the teams win. Up Next: A well deserved off day.

Someone must have put Yorman Rodriguez under a trance, because he somehow managed a 1-3 night with 2 walks. Jake Johnson pitched about as well as Jack Johnson makes records, giving up 6 runs (5 earned) in 4.2 innings.
