Louisville Bats 7, Durham Bulls 4
Louisville scored tied it in the top of the 9th to force extra innings and then scored 3 in the 11th to come back and win against Durham last night. The good news is that Rookie “of the year” Davis started and walked no batters while striking out 10. The bad news is that he gave up 4 earned runs on 9 hits over 4.2 innings of work. Ismael Guillon was very good out of the bullpen, striking out 7 in 3.1 shutout innings. The Louisville pitching staff combined for 19 strikeouts and only 2 walks on the night. That’s good hurlin’. Chad “Wallops” Wallach was the hero, going 3 for 5 with the go-ahead solo dinger in the 11th while also scoring twice. Tyler “Good Day” Goeddel was 2 for 4 with a walk and 2 RBI and Zach “Soft J” Vinej was 1 for 5 with 2 RBI. Everyone in the starting lineup recorded a hit, too, which is also good.
