  • Louisville won both games of a doubleheader against Indy, 2-1 and 3-2Ramon Ramirez started Game 1, and pitched 6 1/3 innings of 1-run ball.  Drew Stubbs had two hits, and Kevin Barker and Chris Valaika drove in runs.  In a Game 2, Jeff Kennard pitched two scoreless innings in relief to earn the win.  Two familiar faces, Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Rosales had two hits each, and Chris Valaika drove two more runs in.  Up next: Indy again at 7:05.  Ben Jukich takes the hill.
  • After a rough first inning, Jordan Smith bounced back in a big way to beat Chattanooga 4-3.  Smith gave up 3 runs in the first inning, but pitched 4 scoreless after that to earn the win.  Philippe-Alexandre Valiquette was the star in relief, pitching two perfect innings while striking out 4.  Todd Frazier and Zachary Cozart homered for the Mudcats, and Logan Parker and Jose Castro had two hits each.  Up next: The Mudcats take on Chattanooga again at 6:15.  Travis Wood should be the next to get a start.
