Louisville Slugger Field, Louisville, KY
Game 2 of 3
It's STAR TREK night in Louisville...the color is a little bold, but the Bats are bold as well, so they kind of complement each other...entering this series, the Toledo Mud Hens led the Bats 7-6 in 2015; last night the Bats blew the Hens away 8-5 at the hands of Brennan Boesch (in support of former Cubs Legend RHP Donn Roach)...tonight the Bats continued to turn the screw, shutting out the Hens 1-0

Toledo Mud Hens starter LHP Matt Boyd only stuck around for 2 scoreless innings, walking 3 and striking out 1, not allowing any hits. Here he faces LOU C Ramon Cabrera, with Irving Falu at 2B and Ryan LaMarre at 1B (both reached via walks).
Toledo legend Mike Hessman, who was a Bat for a year, returned to Toledo in 2014...this is probably his final season in professional baseball..
LOU RHP Matt Buschmann, pitching to Hessman in the 2nd inning, was the real story of the game, pitching a complete game shut out with 4 hits and 4 strikeouts.
Another solo shot for the Mystery Rookie Card game, I picked this really nifty 2012 Bowman Platinum Tyler Pastornicky RC.
Sure, it's barely worth a buck, but it sure is nice to look at. Kind of like Tyler Pastornicky himself, released by the Braves earlier this year and is currently plugging away at something in the Texas Rangers org. He's kind of young to be a Minor League Hammydown, but that's how it goes sometimes.
