Triple-A: The Bats matched Richmond run for run until the 11th inning, when Todd Coffey shocked the world and gave up the game-winning infield single as the Richmond Braves won 5-4. Coffey set that up by allowing a double and a walk and throwing a wild pitch. Despite all that, his ERA dropped to 16.20. Adam Rosales was 2 for 5 with a triple and a homer, Jay Bruce got the day off but got an intentional pass as a pinch-hitter and Danny Herrera allowed 1 hit and struck out 1 in 1.1 shutout innings.

This was one of only 3 games of 12 played by the Reds, Bats and Lookouts this weekend against Braves teams that our guys won. UP NEXT: Brand new series with Tennessee, 7:15 tonight.
