The Bats topped the Clippers, Saturday night at Slugger Field, 4-2. Louisville used timely hitting and good pitching to hold off Columbus. The IL West leaders left 13 men on base in the defeat.

Louisville got going quickly in the first inning when Juan Francisco drove home Zack Cozart on an RBI-single to center field off of Carlos Carrasco.

Todd Frazier scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Wladimir Balentien in the bottom half of the fourth inning to give the Bats a 2-1 advantage. Louisville would add another run in the fifth inning when Frazier singled home Cozart and Balentien concluded the scoring with a solo homer in the eighth.

Clippers DH/3B Wes Hodges hit his eighth homer of the season, a solo shot to straightaway center field in the sixth.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL NEWS

Reds' Infielder Aaron Miles (wfe)

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cincinnati Reds figure to have a pretty good bench this year. Eventhough the roster hasn’t been finalized, it’ll probably be Aaron Miles, Chris Dickerson, Ryan Hanigan, Paul Janish, Miguel Cairo, Wladimir Balentien and Laynce Nix.

With the Reds’ trading away of centerfielder Willy Taveras and his $4 million dollar salary, it made it possible for them to add a solid utilityman in Aaron Miles. Miles will make $2.7 million but it is worth it because he can play all over the field except pitcher and catcher.

Torre enters the final season of a three-year, $13 million dollar contract signed on November 7, 2007. Dodgers hitting coach Don Mattingly, who came with Torre from the New York Yankees, is the manager in waiting.
