The IronPigs lost in a slugfest to the Louisville Bats on Thursday, falling 10-9 at Coca-Cola Park.

The 'Pigs fell behind 8-2 in the second inning before rallying to within a single run.

Maikel Franco hit his fifth home run of the season for the IronPigs, and pitcher Greg Smith added a pinch-hit two-run homer of his own.

Barry Enright (3-4, 5.18) gave up eight runs in just two innings of work on the mound.

The loss was the third in a row for the 'Pigs and the sixth in their last seven games.

The IronPigs (30-31) dropped below .500 with the loss. 

They'll look to avoid the series sweep in their series finale with the Bats on Friday at 7:05pm at Coca-Cola Park.
