LOUISVILLE, Ky.-Runs were a premium on Saturday, as both Louisville's Chad Reineke and Rochester's Vance Worley brought their best stuff to the mound. The Red Wings held off the Bats 2 to 1, as Louisville (37-39) never got anything going at the plate, recording just two hits in the game for the fourth time this season. After getting shutout by Greg Reynolds last night, Rochester (38-39) responded by keeping the Bats off the base paths all game long.
Both starters went at least eight innings in the pitching duel, with Worley hurling his third complete game this season for the Red Wings. Worley, who was the opening day starter for the Minnesota Twins, finished with 9 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB and 5 K's.
After an uneventful first inning, Chris Colabello led off the second inning with a 400-foot blast to right-centerfield, his 16th homerun this season. The solo shot gave the Red Wings the early lead, and Louisville is now 8-29 this season when their opponent scores first.
