Lehigh Valley IronPigs 10, Louisville Bats 9 (10 innings): Yesterday evening, my son and I traveled to Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania to watch the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies host the AAA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. It was also J.A. Happ bobblehead giveaway night.

We had great seats directly behind home plate, and we ended up sitting next to Bats starting pitcher Ben Jukich, who was charting the pitches with a radar gun and who will be tonight's starting pitcher for the Bats.

IronPigs outfielder Michael Taylor -- who we last saw play last month in the AA Eastern League All-Star Game -- hit for the cycle and went 5-for-5 at the plate. He completed the cycle with a game-tying solo home-run in the bottom of the 9th inning. The 'Pigs won on a walk-off single with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning with runners on first and third and both the infield and outfield playing in.

You can access the box score at this link, the game recap at this link, and wraps here, here, and here.
