The Indianapolis Indians lost their 5th game in a row tonight at Victory Field, all at the hands of the Louisville Bats. The Indians won the first two games of this 8-game series in Louisville, but then they lost the third and fourth games in Louisville, and these first three games of their long homestand.
The Bats pounded out 9 hits tonight -- 3 off starter Sean Gallagher, 5 off reliever Danny Moskos, and one off Jared Hughes. Gallagher pitched 5 innings, and gave up only one hit in the first four. That one hit was a solo homer that just barely cleared the right field wall near the corner, by 1B Mike Costanzo. Gallagher gave up a walk in the 2nd and another in the 4th. He erased that runner in the 4th with a slick double play.
Sean Gallagher got to take a few swings too -- he grounded out.
