Indianapolis Indians 1, Louisville Bats 4

The Bats got the win in their season finale on the back of Keury Mella’s fantastic AAA debut. Mella Yella went 7 IP, allowing only 3 hits, 1 walk, and 1 earned run, striking out 6. AJ “Phillip” Morris and Kevin “Love” Shackelford held down the final two frames, striking out a combined 3 batters while allowing no hits or runs. On the offensive side, Uncle Jesse Winker smacked 3 singles and scored a run, Steve “Too” Selsky doubled as part of a 2 hit, 1 run scored night, while Seth Meijas-Brean Casserole had 2 hits, 2 RBIs and walk.

Up Next: Alas, this was the final game for our heroic Bats. We should certainly be seeing some of their lovely young faces wearing red in a few days.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 3, Birmingham Barons 1

Nick Travieso was nasty again, pitching 7.2 innings in this one, allowing nary a run while striking out 6 and walking only 1. “Able” Abel De Los Santos did allow a home run in his 1.1 IP, but otherwise locked down the win. Alex “The Great” Blandino smacked a 2 RBI double on his 2 hit night, with Sebastian Elizalde responsible for the other RBI. Everyone in the lineup, save for Philly Erv and Brandon Dixon recorded a hit on the night.

Up Next: The Wahoos are off Tuesday.

Dayton Dragons 0, South Bend Cubs 3

The Dragons ended their season the only way they knew how; losing, and getting blanked doing so. The loss brings the Dragons final tally to 47-93, made only a little better because Nick Senzel arrived and is the destroyer of worlds. Better luck next year, Dragons.

Anyway, Jake “Banana Pancakes” Johnson allowed 3 ER on 5 H and 2 walks, striking out 5 in 4 IP. Jeremy Kivel “and Bits” struck out 2 and walked none in his 2.0 IP, while Braulio Ortiz also pitched 2 innings, striking out 5 and walking only 1. James Vasquez walloped 2 doubles as part of a 3 hit night, but the Dragons offense as a whole went out with whimper.

Up Next: 2017.

Helena Brewers 0, Billings Mustangs 0, Rain Undefeated

The Rookie Boys were rained out Monday night. They’ll look to get it done tonight, as the only game scheduled on the farm.
