Rece Hinds - 6 for 13, 4 R, 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI

Louisville Bats

Bats 2, Indians 3

Bats 10, Indians 13

Bats 6, Indians 7

Woof. Tough weekend for the Bats. Riley “Father” O’Brien started on Friday and pitched well. He only allowed a run on 2 hits but walked 3 against 6 strikeouts. Alfredo “Sauce” Rodriguez went 1 for 4 and drove in a run. Saturday was a bullpen game for Louisville and, well, the bullpen gave up 13 runs. Diego Lopez only allowed an unearned run in 3 innings while striking out 4. Mark “Silver Medal” Kolozsvary went 3 for 5 with a solo dinger. Mike Freeman also had 3 hits, going 3 for 4 with a triple and a home run and TJ Friedl “Dee” joined the 3-hit club by going 3 for 4 with a RBI. Pitching wasn’t much better on Sunday. Michael “Courtyard by” Mariot gave up 4 runs in 5 innings with a walk and 6 strikeouts. In a weird stat, only 1 of the Bats’ 12 hits was for extra bases. That 1 was a 3-run homer by Michael De Leon as part of his 2 for 5 day. Narciso Crook went 2 for 4 with 2 RBI.

Chattanooga Lookouts

The Lookouts didn’t play this weekend because of Covid issues with the Tennessee Smokies. They play again on Tuesday against Birmingham.

Dayton Dragons

Dragons 2, TinCaps 4

Dragons 6, TinCaps 4

Dragons 2, TinCaps 8

Dragons 8, TinCaps 6

Christian Roa came in after the first inning in game 1 on Friday and gave up 4 runs in 5 innings for Dayton. Allen “Mattress” Cerda was the bright spot offensively, going 2 for 4 and driving in both runs for the Dragons. Game 2 went a little better as Dayton got the 6-4 victory. Spencer “Short Shorts” Stockton started and allowed a couple runs on 3 hits with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts over 4 innings. “Lighten Up” Francis Peguero struck out both batters he faced for the save. Juan “Gone” Martinez went 3 for 3 with a 3-run blast while Jack Rogers added a solo homer.

Things didn’t go as well on Saturday. The pitching allowed 8 runs so I’ll just skip over them. Juan Martinez had a double and drove in a run, which was pretty much all there was to write home about on the offensive side of things. Sunday was better as the Dragons pulled out the 8-6 victory. Carson “Ex” Spiers started and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts over 5 innings of work. “Vote For” Pedro Garcia struck out a pair in 1.1 scoreless innings of relief. I hate myself for making that reference. Allen Cerda had another solid night, going 3 for 5 with a triple and a couple runs scored. Eric Yang also had 3 hits, going 3 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI.

Daytona Tortugas

Tortugas 3, Mets 5

Tortugas 3, Mets 2

Tortugas 9, Mets 6

Daytona had a late run on Friday but fell short in the 5-3 loss. Jason “Peter” Parker started on Friday and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits with a walk and 3 strikeouts in 4 innings of work. Alberto Gonzalez struck out a pair in a scoreless inning out of the bullpen. Rece “Piece” Hinds had a couple hits, including a triple, and scored a run. Justice Thompson added a 2-run blast for the Tortugas. Saturday was better, as Daytona won it in the 10th. Miguel Medrano was solid in his start, going 5 innings and allowing only 1 run while walking 2 and striking out 5. Rece Hinds had another 2-hit night, going 2 for 4 with a run scored. Daytona came roaring back on Sunday, scoring 6 runs in the 9th inning for a nice 6-9 victory. James Marinan threw 5 shutout innings in his start and struck out 3. The bullpen was bad but the offense was better. Rece Hinds, again, had 2 hits, both of these being 2-run dingers. Jose Torres had a solo home run and Danny Lantigua went 2 for 4 with a double and a RBI.
