Josh Bell Hits First Pro Homer

51

The radio feed available for the game was that of the Asheville Tourists, and this is how their announcer described it: "It didn't look too hard-hit, but the baseball just kept carrying [in the wind] and it just made it over the wall." But it's a nice milestone for Bell. May it be the first of hundreds more! UPDATE: The Power lost, 10-6. Other noteworthy events in the game: Alen Hanson made a nice defensive play in the fifth with runners on to save two runs and end the inning, making up for a poor play in the fourth inning that was originally ruled an error but was later reclassified as a hit. Gregory Polanco hit his first homer today as well. Jose Osuna and Willy Garcia both committed errors on one play in the fourth inning. Very ugly. Mike Jefferson and Rinku Singh both got hit hard, not that it matters a whole lot. There were several wild pitches and passed balls. The Power had 10 hits. Despite the fact that they continue to lose, the games are a lot of fun to follow.
