Louisville Slugger Field, Louisville, KY
Game 2 of 3
My very first look at Robert Stephenson. He has amazing stuff, doesn't need any fancy pitches to fool batters, and once he gets his command worked out, he'll be a very elite pitcher...someday. In his second start for Louisville, he faces...OH GAWD, NO, NOOOOO IT'S CHRIS VOLSTAD!

Stephenson faces former Padres prospect and all-around great name champion, OF Jaff Decker
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, it's Brent Morel, playing 3B for the Indians and here, about to fly out at Stephenson's hands
Hide your kids, hide your wife...Chris Volstad, the Beast of the Abyss, pitches to 2B Irving Falu
Louisville's Hero of the Month, RF Brennan Boesch, singles to right center field...
...former Bats stalwart, IF Kristopher Negron (who's back in LOU to stay, apparently) races to third, and would eventually score on an error committed by IND 2B Alen Hanson
Clute, TX native RHP Brad Lincoln is back with the Pirates org after a couple of years with Toronto and Philadelphia...he's been a reliever since Pittsburgh traded him to Toronto for Eric Kratz; here he faces swtich-hitting LOU C Ramon Cabrera
...pretty much every pitcher tonight has the "legs up" at the end of their delivery, so you could say there were a lot of legs in the air tonight...
One guy who isn't leaving his legs in the air for nobody is RHP Jumbo Diaz, still looking rather svelte, striking out IND 1B John Bowker to end the 8th inning...on his way to a 4-out save for the Bats
My Mystery Rookie Card pick for the night...well, it's not really worth its weight in gold, but the sticker says $12 and I am just fine with that.
