It's not over till it's over.

The Louisville Bats trailed 6-0 in the ninth on Friday and won. Yes, you read that right.

On the road against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the Bats put up six runs in the ninth to send it to extras before adding two runs in the 10th in the 8-6 win, the third straight win for Louisville.

How did they do it?

Well, the long ball for starters. Four home runs in the ninth inning to be exact. Aristides Aquino led off the top of the frame with a solo shot. With one out, Alex Blandido did the same. Three batters later, Chadwick Tromp hit a three-run shot to chase reliever Dan Jennings from the game.

Then — and I bet you can guess what happened next — Narcisco Crook joined the dinger party.

In the 10th, Blake Trahan scored two on a single to right. 

The rest they say is history. The Bats (38-60) go for the series win at 6:35 p.m. Saturday.
