- Louisville beat Norfolk pretty handily 6-2 on another impressive start by Homer Bailey. Homer went 8 shutout innings and struck out 7 while walking only 1. In his 5 starts since coming back from Cincinnati, Bailey's given up 3 runs in 37 1/3 innings for an ERA of 0.72. He's also struck out 31 in that span while only walking 8. Daniel Dorn was 3-for-4 and Luis Bolivar had two hits to lead the offense. The Tides put together a rally in the 9th off of Camilo Vazquez, making his AAA debut, but it wasn't enough to take the lead, even with 2-for-4 days by former Reds Jolbert Cabrera and Chad Moeller. Up next: Justin Lehr takes on Norfolk at 7:05.
- Carolina was rained out. They play a doubleheader in Tennessee starting at noon. Travis Wood and Zach Stewart take the hill. I like our chances.
- Matt Klinker had a very nice start coming off the DL as Sarasota won 3-1 against Clearwater. Klinker went 5 2/3 of shutout ball, striking out 7 hitters and walking nobody. Jake Kahaulelio and Denis Phipps had two hits each. Up next: Travis Webb takes on Clearwater at 7. Also, Joey Votto should be getting the start at 1B for the S-Reds, and our own Charlie Scrabbles is rumored to be attending this one.
- J.C. Sulbaran got shelled as Dayton lost to Lansing 12-7. Kevyn Feiner was 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored to lead the offensive attack. Michael Konstanty hit his 2nd HR of the year, and David Sappelt, Andrew Means, and Kyle Day all had two hits each. Up next: Matt Fairel takes on West Michigan at 7.
- Roster Moves: Chris Valaika is back from the DL, although he didn't play yesterday. Jordan Smith was placed on the DL in Carolina, as was Aguido Gonzalez in Dayton.
