Inaugural Series with St. Paul features pair of postgame firework shows

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Louisville Bats kick off the second half of their 12-game homestand tonight (June 2) at 7 p.m. at Louisville Slugger Field. The Bats will host the St. Paul Saints (June 2-6) for the first time in franchise history and cap the six-game set with postgame fireworks shows on both Friday, June 4 (sponsored by Marathon) and Saturday, June 5 (sponsored by Republic Bank).

In addition, after Tuesday’s series opener with St. Paul was postponed by rain, the homestand will now feature a doubleheader on Thursday, June 3, beginning at 5:30 p.m. (Gates open at 5 p.m.). The Bats and Saints will play two seven-inning games for the twin-bill, with the second contest beginning roughly 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.

Cincinnati Reds superstar Joey Votto is also scheduled to open the homestand with the Bats as he completes his Major League rehab assignment from a broken thumb suffered in May.
