Louisville 5, Charlotte 2
The Bats scored two runs off “Big Game” James “but a 5.46 career postseason ERA” Shields (on a rehab assignment) in five innings, and then played add-on in the eighth and ninth to put away the game. Zach Vincej’s single in the eighth scored Phillip Ervin and Beau Amaral, and then Brandon Dixon hit an RBI-double in ninth. Jesse Winker went 0-for-4 with a walk.
Cody Reed looks to continue his strong outings at AAA as he starts for the Bats tonight at 7:05 ET in Charlotte. He pitched eight innings of shutout ball in Columbus last week.

He has pitched at least five innings in six of his last seven starts, this is the third time his strikeout total reached double digits, and he has not walked more than two batters in a start this season. Eric Jagielo homered in the seventh to put the Blue Wahoos up 5-0 and seal the game.
