He good.
Louisville overcame an early deficit to come back and defeat Gwinnett, 7-6. Keury “Nooma Nooma” Mella got the start and wasn’t great.

Brian “Beef” O’Grady brought out the tater mashers last night, as he went 2 for 4 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI.

Joel Kuhnel had a great performance out of the bullpen, striking out 6 in 2 scoreless innings. Taylor Trammell continues to swing a hot bat, as he went 4 for 5 with a RBI and a run scored.

Packy “Wacky” Naughton got the start for Daytona last night and did okay. He lasted 5.2 innings and gave up 3 runs (2 earned) while scattering 9 hits around 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Unfortunately it didn’t really matter how he did because the offense failed to back him up. Hendrik “Oh, My Darling” Clementina went 2 for 4 on the night and that’s pretty much all there was to the offense. Carlos Diaz threw a scoreless inning of relief, which is nice.
Up Next: Daytona looks to bounce back with TBD getting the start against Tampa tonight at 7:05 PM EDT.

Michael Siani reached base 4 times going 2 for 3 with 2 walks and a run scored. Miguel Hernandez went 2 for 5 with a double and a RBI and Shard “Funroe” Munroe also reached base 4 times, going 2 for 3 with a double and 2 walks.
