  • Louisville's offense just didn't get anything going, as they lost both games of their doubleheader, 6-2 in Game 1 and 2-0 in Game 2.  In Game 1, Sam LeCure struggled, giving up 6 runs in 5, and the Bats only runs were scored on a 2-run shot by Jonny Gomes, who was 3-for-3.  Danny Richar was also 2-for-3 with a triple.  Game 2 saw a solid start by Homer Bailey go for naught, as he recieved 4 hits and no runs in support from the offense.  Bailey went 6 innings (for the complete game), and gave up 2 runs, while striking out 6 and walking 2.  Up next: Daryl Thompson takes on Norfolk in a day game, starting at 12:05.
  • Carolina split their doubleheader with Jacksonville last night.  In Game 1, the Mudcats won 4-3Travis Wood pitched well for the Mudcats, giving up 2 runs in 5 1/3, striking out 7.  Todd Frazier went 2-for-4.  In Game 2, the Mudcats lost 4-1 in 10 innings (3 extra from the 7-inning doubleheader game).  Justin Mallett started for Carolina, pitching 5 innings of shutout ball while striking out 6.  Sean Henry led the way for the offense, going 2-for-3 with a solo HR, but the story of the day was Chris Heisey's going 0-for-5, in the first game of the season where he wasn't able to get on base.  It's alright, he's still batting .346.  Up next: Jordan Smith comes off the DL to take on Jacksonville at 7:15.
  • Jerry Gil got lit up again, as Sarasota lost to Palm Beach 6-1.  Gil gave up 6 ER in 4 2/3 innings to drop to 0-6 on the season, the worst in the Reds organization.  The S-Reds only mustered up 4 hits on the night, with a double by Devin Mesoraco, and singles by Yonder Alonso, Alex Buchholz, and Denis Phipps.  In another piece of news from Sarasota, the S-Reds have released OF Daniel Perales, reports Baseball Prospectus.  While he had a few good games lately, he was batting .206 on the season, and leaves Kainer/Reed/Phipps as the starting OF and newly called up from Dayton Tony Brown as the 4th OF for the time being.  Congrats, Tony!  Up next: Travis Webb takes on Palm Beach at 7.

  • Dayton played add-on in the late innings to rout the Lansing Lugnuts, 11-2Stephen Chapman went 3-for-4 with 2 HR and 4 RBI to lead the way.  David Sappelt and Jose Gualdron both had two doubles, and Humberto Sosa was 2-for-4 with his first HR of the season.  Featured Farmhand Matt Fairel had another solid start, as he went 6 innings and gave up 2 runs, only striking out 4 this time but earning the win for his team.  Up next: Josh Ravin takes on Lansing in the earliest game we've seen all season, a 10:35 AM start.
