This one went 13 innings if you were confused by so many innings being pitched. Steve Selsky went 2 for 5 with a double, solo dinger, and a walk. Seth Mejias "Green" Brean "Casserole" also hit a solo wanger.
Louisville played a double header on Saturday after playing 13 innings on Friday because they're masochists.
The Bats faced a pitcher named Buck Farmer, which is freaking awesome. The Bats threw Tim Adleman out there to see if he would stick to the wall. I suppose he did. Adleman pitched 7 innings while only giving up 1 earned run and striking out 2. Hernan "The Barbarian" Iribarren pitched a scoreless inning because double headers after marathons. Kyle "Wally" Waldrop was 2 for 3 with a double.
Seth Varner does not like AAA, which is proven by his 24.75 ERA. Varner pitched 4 innings and allowed 7 earned runs (9 total) on 11 hits, 3 walks, 3 Ks, and a dinger. Nick Routt "66" pitched a scoreless inning with a strikeout. Scott "Schneebly" Schebler was 2 for 3 with a double, walk, 2 RBI, and 2 runs scored.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Zach "Soft J" Vincej was 3 for 4 with a double, triple, and 2 runs scored. Brandon "Dixieland" Dixon was 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI. I'd like to point out that Rookie Davis was also quite the fine prep hitter when he was drafted. He went 1 for 1 with a double and a walk. His seasonal batting average is .267, which was third best out of all the players in the lineup. I'm pretty sure I've watched a video of him crushing a homer in a game this year as well.

Angelo "Bleeding" Gumbs" Murphy was 3 for 4 with a double, RBI, and a walk. Gavin "Deep In" LaValley Votto'd three times. Votto'd = walks. Aristides "Heiress Titties" Aquino continued doing things.
