One of the Cool things about having a Triple-A- Baseball team is you get to see some Stars from the Big Club come down for rehab work...
The Memphis Redbirds get a double dose of that tonight at AutoZone Park..
Redbirds taking on Round Rock with St. Louis Cardinals Pitcher Kyle Lohse on the Mound.
Lohse is down rehabbing a strained forearm that's kept him out of the Majors for about 3-weeks.
He made one start for Class AA Springfield over the weekend..but didn't feel he had his control where he wanted it.
Tonight against the Express, Lohse was Spot On...shutting out Round Rock and taking a no hitter into the 5th inning....
His final numbers..6-innings 6-Strikeouts, 2-walks, No Runs.
After his outing, Lohse says he's ready to get back to the Bigs...
As far as the actual game itself, Tyler Greene, who's also just down from St. Louis for Rehab work, gets it done with 2-men on in the 3rd..
His Ground out plates Shane Robinson.
Next Inning, 'birds get 2 on again...
This time Mark Shorey with the Double to centerfield..
That Brings Mark Hamilton in to touch the plate and it's 2-nothing Memphis...
Redbirds getting greedy, Mark Pagnozzi with the Drive to Center..
Brett Wallace on his horse and heading home..It's a Close play at the Plate...
Birds say he's safe...but the Ump says he didn't touch the plate.. He's Out!
Redbirds get the victory and sweep the series
Final Score 3-to-1.
'Birds open a new series against Albuquerque Wednesday night at the Zone.
