Louisville 4 – Norfolk 1

Jerry Hairston, Jr. only had 1 hit, and made it a big one.  Hairston hit his first homerun of the season in the 5th inning with 2 on and 2 outs to lift the Bats to a 4-1 win.  Hairston is hitting .421/.463/.711 in 10 games this season.

Matt Belisle picked up the win and appears to be on the speedy track back to Cincinnati.  Matt went 7 innings, allowing 1 run on 8 hits and a walk while striking out 6.  In 3 minor league starts, he has gone 24.2 innings, allowed 3 earned runs on 17 hits and 1 walk.  He’s struck out 12.

Chattanooga 7 – Huntsville 5

The Lookouts had a 7-1 lead in this game and held on late for a 2 run victory.  Craig Tatum went 3-5 for the Lookouts with a homerun, double, 2 runs scored and 2 runs batted in.  Sean Henry also hit a homerun, going 2-5 on the night with 2 runs scored, 3 runs batted in, and he added a triple.  Cody Strait also had 2 hits in 5 at-bats.  Strait had a double and scored a run.

Daryl Thompson was stellar once again.  Thompson allowed 1 run on 5 hits and struck out 7 in 5.2 innings of work.  He moved his record to 2-0 on the season and now posts a 0.51 ERA in 17.2 innings. 

Lakeland 17 – Sarasota 3

I think the Reds need to make note and not schedule anymore 10:30 a.m. games the rest of the season.  Sarasota had barely woken up yet and found themselves in a huge hole.  Starter Camilo Vazquez went 2.2 innings, giving up 9 runs on 9 hits and 3 walks.  Obviously the bullpen did not fare much better.  Logan Ondrusek gave up 3 runs on 2 hits and 3 walks in 1.1 innings of relief.  Lee Tabor gave up 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk in 1 inning of work.

Not much to mention offensively either, other than Juan Francisco went 2-4 with a homerun and an rbi.  It was Juan’s 3rd homerun of the season.

Beloit 8 – Dayton 6; final 11

Keltavious Jones was a single short of the cycle in a 3-5 night.  Jones scored twice, added the lone double, triple, and homerun.  He also drove in 1.  Kevyn Feiner went 2-5 with 2 rbis and Jason Bour went 2-5 with a double and run scored.
