Farmers Only: Louisville goes off

The Bats finally broke out the bats, and Alejo Lopez hits his first homer since 2017!

Times are good in Louisville right now

The Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night

Alejo Lopez: 3 for 5, 2-run home run, 3 RBI

Alejo Lopez is getting his first crack at High-A Daytona this season. After spending the entire season in Dayton in 2018, he has got off to a hot start this year, slashing .379/.438/.483 in the short season. Last night, he continued that with a 3 for 5 night while hitting a 2-run dinger and driving in 3. His home run last night was his first of the year, and it also surpassed his entire HR total from 2018. Have a trophy, Alejo.

Louisville Bats 8, Columbus Clippers 0

After a couple of rough nights, Louisville broke out in a big way with an 8-0 victory over Columbus.

Jesus “Saves” Reyes struck out 2 in 1.2 scoreless innings and “Sloppy” Sal Romano struck out 2 in a scoreless inning. Josh “Living in a” VanMeter “Down by the river” continues to fucking mash the ball, as he smacked a 2-run dinger as a part of a 2 for 3 night. Brian “Beef” O’Grady went 3 for 5 with a double and a RBI and Nick “Shedhi” Longhi went 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and 2 driven in.
