Louisville was unable to overcome an early deficit and fell to Buffalo 6-3 on Tuesday. Robert “Bob Steve” Stephenson got the start and was not good. He only lasted 4 innings, giving up 6 earned runs on 4 hits with 4 walks and only 2 strikeouts. Most of the damage was done via the long ball, as Stephenson gave up home runs of the 2-run and the 3-run variety. Scott “Mr. Schneebly” Schebler continued his torrid stretch, going 2 for 4 with 1 RBI. Jermaine “Dupree” Curtis was 1 for 3 with 2 walks and 2 RBI, Chris Berset was 1 for 4 with a double and a run scored, and Seth Mejias-Brean “Burrito” was 1 for 4 with a run scored of his own. Nick Routt “44” pitched 2 scoreless innings of relief out of the bullpen.

Gavin “The Lily of” LaValley was 2 for 4 with 1 RBI and scored a run and Jonathan Reynoso added 2 hits of his own in a 2 for 4 night. Jimmy “Get a Brain” Moran pitched a scoreless inning of relief.
Dayton was off tonight. The Midwest League All-Star Game was played but the box score link took me here so I don’t know how our guys did.

Nick Senzel “Washington” was 1 for 3 with a double and a run scored, Mitch “Not Trees” Piatnik was 2 for 3 and scored a run, and Colby Wright was 1 for 3 with 1 RBI.
