The Louisville Bats had a wishy washy kind of weekend, losing 2 out of 3 games to the Durham Bulls.
Friday, the Bats received an ugly start from Dylan "Dadbod" Axelrod (1.2 IP, 6 H, 7 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR). Gross. Nick "Sister" Christiani was the only pitcher of note, when he threw 2.1 scoreless innings with 2 strikeouts. Irving "Death By Snoo Snoo" Falu was 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored, a RBI, and 2 walks. Yorman "Call Me Up, Man" Rodriguez was 2 for 5 with 2 RBI, and Steve Selsky had a single, 2 RBI, and 2 walks. In what was a really good night offensively for the Bats, where they collected 13 hits and 7 walks, Jason Bourgeois and Jose "George" Constanza also had multi-hit games. Somehow, they completed this game in a shade over 3 hours.
Saturday, the Bats were victorious with a 6-8 victory, yes! Keyvius "And Peele" Sampson made his Bats debut and was adequate (6 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K). The bullpen sucked, and that includes you, Sam LeCure. Irving "Value" Falu, continued his torrid play at the plate with a 4 for 4 night with a solo dinger and 3 runs scored. Steve "So" Selsky was 2 for 3 with a double, RBI, and walk; and Ramon Cabrera was 3 for 2 with a 2 run wanger.
Sunday, was more of a normal baseball game but still resulted in a 3-2 loss. Josh Smith put together a boring start (7 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, and 3 K). Layne "Dwayne" Somsen and Carlos Contreras both pitched scoreless innings from the bullpen. Hernan "The Barbarian" Iribarren was 3 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI.
The Bats play at 7:05 tonight with Holmberg on the mound.
Pensacola Blue Wahoos
The Wahoos, if you've been paying attention are not a very good team right now, and they were swept this weekend.
Saturday, the played a double header due to a rain out on Friday.
In Game 1, the Wahoos took a tough 3-2 walk off loss. Timothy Adleman started and went 5.0 innings, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, and 4 K. Zach Weiss gave up a solo shot in his 1 inning to lose it. Ray Chang, Kyle "Balldrop" Walldrop, and Marquez "Old Man" Smith all had a 2 hit game.
In Game 2, the Wahoos lost in walkoff fashion, again, 4-3. "John" Jacob "Jingleheimer" Johnson put up a good start (5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K). The bullpen was poopy. Marquez Smith went 2 for 3 with a run scored and a solo dinger.
Sunday, Pensacola lost to Montgomery, 2-5. Robert Stephenson was not able to keep his string of sterling starts together (4 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 6 BB, 5 K, 2 HR). Hopefully, it was just a momentary lapse in control. Jimmy "Get A Brain" Moran pitched 2 scoreless innings out of the pen, and Carlos Gonzalez pitched 1. Cam "Bam Thank You Ma'am" Maron had a 2 for 4 game with a RBI.
Pensacola is playing right meow with Silva on the mound.
