the Memphis Redbirds mean business so far this year.
After seeing their lead drop to a half game in the Pacific Coast League American Northern Division with a loss last night at second place Omaha..
The Redbirds rally in an afternoon Matinee today at Rosenblatt Stadium.
First, they do it with Defense as Left Fielder John Jay charges hard to make the sliding catch to get out of an inning..
The 'Birds get it done, as usual, with small ball at the plate..
John Jay comes up next inning after doubling and gets the jump on the pitcher to steals third..
Later, with David Freese at the plate, the Redbirds pull off the Double Steal..
David Craig takes off for second to draw the throw...
That allows John Jay to scramble in from third and slide in ahead of the throw.
Redbirds score 2 in the 9th to get the come from behind victory..
Final score 6-5.
Memphis now leads Omaha by a game and a half.
'Birds back home May 12th against Las Vegas at AutoZone Park.
