On a night where the Lexington Legends threw a no-hitter, the three Kentucky Minor League Baseball teams combined for a 2-1 record. You can see those stories plus a roundup of the best performances from Kentucky high school and college alumni in the daily BluGrass Baseball MiLB roundup below:

 

Lexington Legends right-handed pitcher Chris Devenski struck out 16 batters while throwing a no-hitter in a 10-0 win versus Rome. You can see a full recap of the game and box score here.

 

Three hits were all the Bowling Green Hot Rods needed in a 5-3 win versus Fort Wayne. First baseman Jeff Malm slugged a grand slam in the eighth inning, and shortstop Jake Hager slugged a solo home run in the first inning. Right-handed reliever Nick Sawyer was credited with his first win after pitching two hitless innings. (Box Score)

 

Rehabbing Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto homered, but the Louisville Bats could not avoid a 5-1 loss to Columbus. Left-handed pitcher Travis Webb was charged with the loss after surrendering two runs on two hits in three and one-third innings. (Box Score)

 

Former UK football player Matt Lentz reached base four times with a double and three walks, drove in three runs and scored once for rookie-level Billings.

 

Former Beechwood High School and Campbellsville infielder Chris Curley was 2-4 with two runs scored for high A Winston-Salem.

 

Former Dixie Heights High School right-handed pitcher Graham Taylor posted a quality start but was charged with a loss after surrendering three runs on six hits in six innings while striking out five batters and walking three in a start for AA Jacksonville.

 

Former WKU right-handed pitcher Craig Stem earned his fourth save of the season with a scoreless inning of relief for low A Great Lakes.
