Lions Drop Diamond Club with Late Score
The Kentucky Lions topped the Virginia Diamond Club by the score of 8-6, with the biggest share of the credit going to catcher Gil Smith. Smith went 2 for 5 with a home run. He drove in 4 runs and scored once for the Lions on the day. Cris Colón earned the win to go to 5-1. He allowed 3 earned runs on 8 hits, with no walks and 2 strikeouts. The save was credited to Ed López, his 3rd.

Smith had a game-changing single in the top of the eighth. On a 0-2 fastball from Juan Menéndez, he banged a 2-run single to left, giving the Lions a 8-6 lead. It was the 25th hit of the year for Smith.

Smith told a Kentucky Chronicle reporter that he was "satisfied" with the win.

The Lions, now 17-8, have been on a roll in the early going.
