Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Bubba never got into the game last night. It's the first Bats game all season they haven't used him in. There was a lefty on the mound, which is probably why he didn't start. And they were playing with a DH, which means much less need for substitutions.
It was kind of a weird game. A truck hit a transformer, and the lights went out between the 6th and 7th inning. There was a fairly long delay while they waited for the electricity to be restored.
Homer Bailey had a decent start, and left the game with a 2-1 lead. But Majewski gave up a bunch of runs, including a grand slam. The Bats came close to rallying a couple of times, but ended up losing 8-4.
The Bats play the Tides again today at 2:15pm. Bubba is not in the lineup again. Even though there's a righty pitcher on the mound. Maybe he needs some time off, after crashing to the warning track the other day.
UPDATE: Bubba is apparently out of the lineup because his left shoulder is hurting.
Also, Chad Moeller cleared waivers and accepted assignment to Louisville. He will be joining the Bats on Monday. Jeff Keppinger, rehabbing from a broken finger, will also be joining the Bats soon. (He may take Hopper's spot with the big club when he's ready.)
