Louisville had the night off, as the International League faced the Pacific Coast League in the AAA All Star Game. The Bats sent Ruben Gotay (0-2) and Felix Perez (2-2, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI) to the festivities as the International League whooped up on the PCL 7-3. The big news of the day, however, was the Bats dropping this on us:
Unfortunately, these were only the second best MiLB jerseys that were revealed yesterday:
Pensacola had their game banged due to rain. Jacksonville Suns, my ass. They'll play a double header this afternoon.
