Cannonballs Coming: Indy hitters whiff 22 times in 10-inning game

— Indianapolis’ (9-6) potent lineup had a nightmarish day in a 3-1, ten-inning loss to Louisville, fanning 22 times. Of those, 13 came against Lucas Sims, a former Atlanta first-rounder who spent 2017-18 struggling unsuccessfully to stay in the majors. Nine more followed against a string of relievers. Will Craig whiffed all four times up. Kevin Kramer and Ke’Bryan Hayes each fanned three times, with Kramer getting hit by a pitch and Hayes hitting a single in their other plate appearances. Gregory Polanco went 1-4 and doubled in the only run while striking out only two times. Jake Elmore was 2-5 with two doubles. Rookie Davis gave up just a run in five and two-thirds innings. He allowed four hits and two walks, and fanned six. Michael Feliz got Tyler Lyons out of a first-and-third situation and threw two scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk, and striking out four. On the season, he’s allowed seven hits and three walks in eight innings, with a dozen strikeouts and no gopher balls.
