Memphis takes a commanding 2-0 lead in the series with a 3-2 win over Brett Wallace and the Sacramento RiverCats.
- Adam Ottavino was spectacular striking out 9 over 6 innings. He allowed 2 runs over 6 innings walking 3. At 94 pitches, he was relatively efficient in retiring hitters.
- The Redbirds revived on the same relievers as the previous evening (minus Josh Kinney) with Royce Ring pitching the 7th, Fernando Salas pitching the 8th and Pete Parise picking up the save in the 9th.
- Jon Jay was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks.
- Allen Craig was 1-for-3 with a walk.
- Mark Hamilton was 2-for-4 with a solo HR to take the lead in the 6th.
- The Redbirds collected 8 hits and 4 walks but only Hamilton’s HR was for extra bases. Death by 1000 papercuts.
The remaining three games of this five game series will be held in Sacramento beginning on Friday. Hopefully Friday is the last game! Go Redbirds!
