The Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night
Brian Rey - 2 for 5, HR, 3 RBI
Nobody else really stood out last night in the minors. 2 teams didn’t have a game, and the rest of the teams didn’t really show up either. So in their last game of the season, the trophy goes to Greeneville’s Brian Rey. Congrats. Enjoy your off-season.
Louisville had a rough time in the middle innings, as they gave up 3 runs in each of the 5th and 6th innings to fall 7-1 on Wednesday.

Things did not go well down on the Reds farm last night, did they? A 6-run 6th inning would be the doom of Greeneville in an 8-5 loss to the Princeton Rays. Jacob Heatherly started and struggled with his command. He lasted 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits with 4 walks and 5 strikeouts. Jerry “JERRY! JERRY!” D’Andrea struck out 3 in a scoreless inning of relief. Brian “Gamma” Rey went 2 for 5 with a dinger and 3 RBI. Rylan Thomas went 2 for 4 with a walk and Robert Boselli reached 4 times, going 1 for 4 with 3 walks and 2 runs scored.
That ended Greeneville’s season. They finished with a record of 28-40.
