Louisville Slugger Field, Louisville, KY
Game 2 of 2
We haz a sad, because it's the final game of the season.
The Bats were getting shut out until an unbelievable rally in the bottom of the 9th resulted in yet another walk-off win against Indianapolis to finish the season; this year courtesy of Brennan Boesch.

David Holmberg pitches to Keon Broxton...we started the game in the Left Field warning track section, but moved up to the Upper Deck after a few innings to join our friends.
...that's better! My perennial favorite human garbage fire Chris Volstad vs. LOU IF Irving Falu
Volstad owned the Bats through 7IP, allowing 4 hits and striking out 6
Holmberg faces former hot prospect C Tony Sanchez
IND RHP Josh Wall, in relief, served up a decent inning to hold off the Bats (here, against IF Hernan Iribarren)...it was his relief, RHP Blake Wood, that would let it go and allow the Bats to bring a final victory to Louisville
Wall vs. SS Juan Perez, Venezuelan 2B Nick Benedetto (who came in for Falu in the 5th) on first base
LOU RHP reliever Jimmy Moran on the mound in the top of the 9th
In what has to be one of the most riotous rounds of the Mystery Rookie Card game I've ever played, 7 players were dealt among 3 teams...to make a long story short, my kids are doing their best to spread the word on the game, and our friends are playing it too. My initial pick was a Joey Votto RC, but I don't care much for him, so I traded for a couple of admirable replacements.
I really liked this 2006 Upper Deck NP Kenji Johjima, but really had my eye on another card...
...that card being this gorgeous 2005 Bowman FY Jair Jurrjens. Joey Votto's value is a bit higher in these parts, so I was able to get both cards for him, and we all went home happy.
As for the other transactions, I didn't keep track of them.
