The Memphis Redbirds start of off Memorial day with a loss and a gain before they even play Monday's game against Albuquerque..
First, the Parent St. Louis Cardinals callup outfielder Allen Craig from Memphis.
The 'Birds get Lefthander Evan MacLane back from the Big Club..
Maclane spent only 2-days with the Cardinals and saw no action..
Good crowd on a Hot Day at AutoZone Park sees MacLane get probably more action than he wanted..
With a Man on First, MacLain squares to Bunt off Isotopes Starter John Koronka..
The Result, MacLane gets smacked in the Nose by an Inside Pitch..
Koronka, who's making his first Triple-A- start is already trailing 3-zip in the Second inning..
MacLane's OK... He stays in the game and takes First Base..
The Next batter, Jim Rappaport draws a walk...so Bases are loaded for Tyler Greene..
And Greene promptly knocks a solid Double off the Wall in Left Field..
Matt Pagnozzi and MacLane score easily...
Greene to second standing up..
That makes it 5-to-nothing Redbirds with more to come..
Daniel Descalso up...and on his First Pitch..
Let's all Say...See You Later..
The Park can't hold this one as it's all the way outta here to Right Center.
That's a 3-Run Home Run...
Rappaport, Greene and Descalso all come home to roost..
They add a couple more runs for good measure..
The Redbirds make it 2-in a Row..
Shutting out Albuquerque... Final 11-to-Nothing
