The Chiefs 10-game homestand begins tonight with a four game set versus the Louisville Bats, who come to town with a record of 9-10.

Here is a look at who to watch for on the Louisville team.


Bailey_homer1The Reds #1 Prospect Homer Bailey comes to Syracuse with a 1-1 record and 1.69 ERA in four starts.  Bailey is considered one of the next great Pitchers-in-the-making along with the Yankees Phil Hughes, who we just had a chance to watch in Syracuse last week.  Left-hander Phil Dumatrait leads the IL with 4 wins and a 0.38 ERA in four starts.

Former SkyChiefs’ pitcher Jason Kershner is 1-1 with a 0.87 ERA in 10 appearances out of the bullpen.


Votto_joey1 Reds #3 prospect Joey Votto is off to a slow start hitting just .215 with 2 HR and 11 RBI after connecting for 22 HR’s at AA Chattanooga last season. 

Red Sox fans will get a chance to see infielder Mark Bellhorn who is hitting .283 with 2 HR and 12 RBI.  Yankee fans will be disappointed to see that OF BellhornBubba Crosby is currently on the DL.  Infielder Earl Snyder, an IL veteran, is off to a slow start hitting .120 with 0 HR and just 3 RBI but always hits well at Alliance Bank Stadium.

Aaron Herr, son of former Major Leaguer Tommy Herr, is second on the Louisville team with a .303 average and leads the team with 8 doubles.

Former SkyChiefs’ OF Dewayne Wise is off to a nice start hitting .308 with 3 triples, 3 HR and 5 RBI.  He is joined in the Louisville outfield by Tyrell Godwin, who reached AA with the Blue Jays before being selected in the 2006 Rule V Draft.
