With the Buffalo Bisons down 2-0 against the Louisville Bats, Brad Glenn almost made it all the way around the bases on his legs on his go-ahead little league home run, but had to to do a front crawl the last three feet or so to reach home plate.
In the bottom of the eighth inning at Coca-Cola Field, Matt Hague walked and reached second after Chris Colabello singled to right. A pitching change, out, and a wild pitch later, Brad Glenn looped a Nate Adcock offering into the right-centre gap. Glenn chugged his way around second as the centre fielder retrieved the ball as the Bats tried to catch him at third on a relay, but the throw short-hopped the third baseman as Glenn slid in. With manager / third-base coach Gary Allenson yelling and pointing, Glenn got up and ran home, sliding several feet too early.
It wasn't pretty baseball, but it gave the Bisons and Steve Delabar the 3-2 victory against the Bats with Bo Schultz notching the save after a shaky ninth. Buffalo now sits alone at the top of the International League North standings at 15-9, a half-game above the Rochester Red Wings and Pawtucket Red Sox. They also have the IL's best record.
