From the way things started this year for the Memphis Redbirds, this has actually been a pretty good homestand for a team that started 0-and-9 on the season. The Homestand ends tonight with the Redbirds looking to end a 4 game losing streak.
Take you Downtown to AutoZone Park where the 'Birds close out their series with the Iowa Cubs...some great defense by John Nelson, watch the diving stop, he flips the ball out of his glove to Junior Spivey who fires to first for the out to turn the double play! The Fans give him a standing ovation. In the 5th, Skip Schumacher sends one deep to right...it's a 2-run home run. And the Redbirds win 7-4. The 'Birds now fly the coop for 8-games, beginning tomorrow night in Las Vegas.
