Louisville wins a close one vs. Toledo…Jay Bruce with 2 doubles…Matt Maloney on the hill tonight for the Bats…Chattanooga gets beat at Tennessee…Sarasota once again has a game in Tampa suspended due to rain…Dayton loses at West Michigan…All 3 of the Dragons’ losses in the series come in the bottom of the ninth inning…Billings beats Helena…Brandon Waring goes deep – twice – again…GCL Reds conclude their series with a loss at the hands of those dastardly GCL Pirates.
