Stripers Fall 3-2 to Louisville in Tight Battle


By Dave Lezotte

Media Relations Manager and Broadcaster


Tucker Davidson tossed 7.0 two-run innings, but the Gwinnett Stripers (27-25) fell 3-2 to the Louisville Bats (18-33) in a tight game on Friday night at Coolray Field.

Decisive Plays: Alex Dickerson (5) smashed his second home run in a three-day span to give the Stripers a 1-0 lead in the second inning, but the teams traded blows throughout the game, leaving the score tied at 2-2 through seven innings. Ronnie Dawson drove in the decisive run in the ninth inning with a single off Seth Elledge (L, 1-2) scoring Juniel Querecuto.


Key Contributors: Davidson's 7.0 innings were a season high as he allowed two runs on eight hits and struck out eight. John Nogowski (1-for-2, double, run, three walks, stolen base) reached base four times, while Delino DeShields Jr. (1-for-2, double, stolen base) reached three times. For the Bats, Querecuto went 4-for-4 with two doubles, a home run (1), two runs, and two RBIs.

Noteworthy: Davidson's start was his first at Coolray Field since May 4 vs. Charlotte. Dickerson has homered in consecutive appearances for the first time since June 4-5, 2021 with San Francisco. The loss snaps Gwinnett's six-game home winning streak over Louisville that dated back to May 14, 2021.
