Farmers only: Mainland teams go 7-0

Matt Maloney

I've been away for a few days, and as my time is stretched in different directions, these posts have grown more sparse. I have some things to take care of in the morning, so I would really like to extend the Farmer's only shutout streak. But it was an enormous day for the system, so I had to get a post up.

Triple-A: Matt Maloney struck out 7 in 5 innings and Michael Griffin doubled in 2 to give the Bats a 4-2 win. Maloney has struck out 28 in his past 4 starts and 100 overall in his 105 innings this season.

Double-A: Sean Henry had 2 doubles as the Lookouts won 5-4. Justin Turner added 2 hits, and Travis Wood allowed just 1 run in 6 innings.

Juan Francisco

High A: Misael DeJesus struck out 9 in 7 innings as Sarasota rolled 5-0. He allowed 5 hits and no walks and has 56 strikeouts in 53.2 innings this season. Todd Frazier was 2 for 4, Drew Stubbs homered and both can be said for Juan Francisco. Francisco has 12 homers on the year. Ramon Geronimo got 4 outs to wrap up his 10th save, and he's got his ERA down to 0.70.

Low A: Logan Parker smacked a 3-run double and Kyle Lotzkar secured his first pro win as Dayton also won 5-0. Lotzkar -- the Reds' supplemental-round pick last season -- struck out 7 in 5 innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 walk. Devin Mesoraco was 1 for 4 for the 6th time in 9 games.

Rookie: Neftali Soto was 3 for 5 with a double, David Sappelt was a triple short of the cycle, Alex Buchholz added 2 hits and Lance Janke struck out 5 in 5 innings as Billings won 11-3. The Mustangs pounded out 17 hits. ... Yen-Wen Kuo was 4 for 4, Cody Puckett, Alexis Oliveras, Humberto Sosa and Efrain Contreras all had at least 2 hits and Evan Hildebrandt struck out 6 in 7 innings in the GCL Reds' blowout 12-0 win. Blaine Howell faced 6 batters and struck out 5. Hildebrandt has allowed 1 earned run in his 3 starts this season. ... The D-Reds lost 12-7 to make Reds teams (including Cincinnati) 7-1 on the day.
