MINOR details 5/20/12: Soto brings the mustard as Bats win again

Soto had a big Bats blast.
Louisville 7 Lehigh Valley 3
-It was back-to-back wins for the Bats (15-30) as Pedro Villarreal (2-0) allowed just two earned runs in his 6.2 innings for the win. Jordan Smith got the save (3) tossing 1.1 scoreless innings.
-2B Willie Harris had two hits with a double and two RBI. 3B Chris Valaika added a double and an RBI as well. The big moment belonged to 1B Neftali Soto though, whose only hit was a sixth-inning grand slam (5) to blow the game wide open.

-Daniel Corcino struck out nine over six innings, while allowing just two earned runs, but the Blue Wahoos (21-23) weren't able to capitalize. Drew Hayes blew the save giving up an earned run, while getting just two outs. Clayton Tanner (1-1) took the loss, surrendering the go-ahead run in his 1.1 innings of work.
-CF Ryan LaMarre and 1B Joel Guzman each had a hit and an RBI. LF Stephen Hunt added an RBI with a sacrifice bunt in the sixth. 2B Brodie Greene, RF Josh Fellhauer, and C Mark Fleury each had two hits and a run scored.

-The Blaze (24-19) got walloped Sunday as starter Daniel Renken (3-2) allowed five earned runs in 4.1 innings. Jamie Walczak struck out three over 2.2 perfect innings. Pat Doyle was charged with three earned runs in his one inning of work.
-SS Billy Hamilton had a walk, but was hitless, dropping his average to .309 on the season. 2B Devin Lohman collected a base on balls. 3B Travis Mattair had a single, while RF Jaren Matthews banged out a double, and that was it as far as offense (or lack thereof) for the Blaze.

-Tanner Robles (3-3) gave up four earned runs over five innings, but still got the win for the Dragons (16-28). James Allen tossed two perfect innings. Michael Dennhardt and Kyle McMyne each threw a scoreless inning, with McMyne getting the save (2).
