The Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night
Nick Senzel, 2B/3B - 0-4
This seems a little strange to give a guy who went 0-4 a BLHSotN, but the fact that he is back in the lineup is worthy enough. After missing the last few weeks with a return of his vertigo, Nick Senzel was finally cleared to return to Louisville to start mashing baseballs. While his stats probably weren’t up to his liking, he was apparently hitting the ball hard and making some nice plays at second. Welcome back, Nick.
Cody “Dinger” Reed started for the Bats and went 6.2 innings, giving up 4 runs on 10 hits with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. All 4 of his runs came off solo home runs. The big story of the night was the return of Nick Senzel to the lineup. While Senzel went 0-4, it was still nice to see him back and playing again. Friend of the blog Jason Linden was at the game and was able to speak to Senzel. He had a nice write-up about it over at Redleg Nation, if you would like to check it out. For the res of the offense, Gabriel Guerrero went 2 for 4 and Hernan “The Barbarian” Iribarren reached 3 times, going 1 for 2 with 2 walks.
Up Next: TBD is pitching tonight at 6:30 PM ET.
Daniel “2 Wrongs Don’t Make A” Wright started for Pensacola last night and wasn’t very good. He lasted 5 innings, giving up 5 runs on 3 hits while walking 5 and striking out only 2. Victor Payano was good out of the bullpen, going 2.1 shutout innings and striking out 4. Aristides “Heiress Titties” Aquino was 2 for 3 with a solo dinger and 2 RBI and Nick “Shedhi” Longhi was 2 for 3 with a walk.
Up Next: TBD will start tonight against Jacksonville at 6:05 PM CT.
Daytona had their 4th game in a row banged because of rain. They are supposed to play a double-header tonight starting at 5:00 PM ET.
Runs in the 7th and 8th were enough to bring Dayton back from behind for a 2-1 win. Hunter Greene got the start and pitched pretty well. He went 5 innings and allowed only 1 run on 3 hits while walking 2 and striking out 4. Wendolyn “Wendy Bats” Bautista followed him up with 3 shutout innings and 4 strikeouts. Montrell “We Are” Marshall was 1 for 3 with a solo dinger and Jose Garcia was 1 for 3 with a double.
Up Next: Andrew Jordan starts tonight for Dayton at 7:00 PM ET.
