Games played on Tuesday, May 5

Triple – A

Rochester 13 – Louisville 9

This appears to be one of those games that looks closer than it really was.  The Bats scored 4 runs in the 8th inning and then 3 more in the bottom of the 9th to make it look respectable.  The problem for the Bats was that they committed 4 errors that led to 5 unearned runs early in the contest.  Norris Hopper had another multi-hit game, going 3-5 with 2 doubles, a run scored, and an rbi.  Hopper is now batting .311 in Louisville.  Jonny Gomes went 2-5 for the Bats with a homerun, a double, and 4 runs batted in.

Luis Bolivar and Drew Sutton made 2 errors apiece with 3 of the 4 being throwing errors.

Double – A

The game between Carolina and Mobile was postponed.  The unfortunate thing about this was that Redleg Nation Spotlight player Matt Klinker was scheduled to make his first start at Double – A.  For those who remember, Matt did earn the nickname “Rain Man” a while back when it either rained while he pitched or rained out his scheduled start.

Class A Advanced

Fort Myers 10 – Sarasota 3

Yonder Alonso is gradually getting his numbers up.  In this contest, Alonso went 2-4 with a double and a run scored.  Devin Mesoraco doubled in 2 at-bats.  Devin also drove in a run and walked once.

The pitching for the Reds allowed 13 hits and 6 walks.  The club used 4 pitchers, each gave up at least 2 earned runs.

Single – A

Clinton 7 – Dayton 5

The Dragons held a 5-4 lead going to the 8th but watched Clinton tie it with a run in the 8th and then take the lead with 2 runs in the 9th.  Aguido Gonzalez gave up the 2 runs in the 9th inning that gave Clinton the victory.

Cody Puckett had a great day at the plate, going 4-5 with 4 singles and 2 runs scored.  Puckett is still struggling though, batting just .242 on the season.
