Louisville Slugger Field, Louisville, KY
Game 2 of 2
He wasn't the only one, but Minor League journeyman Zach Walters owned the Bats today, with 2 HR (back-to-back), 4 RBI, and good grief...

COL RHP Jarrett Grube on the mound, LOU 2B Irving Falu at the plate
LOU RHP Dylan Axelrod faces Anthony Gallas...
...is Gallas wearing a balaclava...or is that a...beard???
Yes, it's a beard. That's the most shag carpet-like beard I've seen on a ball player in years, enough depth for 3 Dallas Keuchel beards, I think
Gallas also homered today...
RHP Donovan Hand in relief after Axelrod was knocked out following 3 innings and 5 earned runs (3 of them from Walters' taters), COL RF Michael Choice
LHP Tony Cingrani, a reliever now, is about to strike out Gallas
In the Mystery Rookie Card game, I happened to select perennial International League stalwart Alexi Casilla.
Surprisingly, he's played nearly as many games in MLB (578) as he's played in the Minor Leagues (619)...throughout his 13 season career, Casilla has made appearances at Louisville Slugger Field as a Rochester Red Wing (2007-2009), a Norfolk Tide (2014), and this season, he's played with both the Durham Bulls and the Buffalo Bisons. Of course, I remember Casilla most for his time with the Twins, and this game in particular.
