Farmers Only: Travis Wood continues to be the best pitcher most Reds fans have never heard of

  • Louisville got a solid start from Matt Maloney, but ultimately fell to Charlotte 3-2Drew Stubbs and Drew Sutton had two hits each to lead the offense, but Maloney gave up 3 runs in the 8 innings he pitched and didn't get any run support.  Up next: The 9-2 Justin Lehr takes on Charlotte at 7:15 against Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel's brother Justin.
  • How good is Travis Wood?  He pitched another 6 shutout innings to lead Carolina to a 7-0 shutout win against Jacksonville.  Wood only gave up 4 hits and struck out 3 in his 8th win of the season, and brought his ERA down to 1.27.  Todd Frazier led the way for the offense, going 3-for-4, and Chris Heisey had two hits to bounce back from a disappointing weekend.  Logan Parker drove in two runs, and Sean Henry and Chris Denove both went deep as the Mudcats rolled.  Up next: Zach Stewart gets the nod as the Mudcats take on Jacksonville at 7:15.
  • Sarasota lost a wild one against Palm Beach 5-4.  Down 4-2 going into the 9th, they tied the game on a solo HR by Neftali Soto and Jason Bour's double to score Devin Mesoraco, but Justin Freeman threw a wild pitch in the bottom of the inning to give up the winning run.  Rafael Gonzalez pitched a quality start, and Joe "The Cycle" Krebs pitched a scoreless inning of relief, but the S-Reds couldn't hold on.  Offensively, Justin Reed went 3-for-4 with a triple.  Up next: S-Reds take on Palm Beach again, at 7:05.  No starter listed, and I'm not sure who they'll go with off the all-star break.  I think it should be Travis Webb, but don't quote me on that.
  • Dayton had two players in the MWL All-Star gameMatt Fairel pitched a perfect 3rd inning for the East, and Kevin Coddington came in off the bench and went 0-for-2.
  • Billings beat Great Falls in their opener 9-1 behind a stellar opening day start by Leonardo Astorga.  Astorga went 5 innings of shutout ball, striking out 5 before surrendering to Justin Walker who pitched two shutout innings of his own.  The Mustangs offense was awesome too, as Yen-Wen Kuo went 3-for-5 and Shane Carlson, Tony Brown, Efrain Contreras, and Alexis Oliveras all had two hits each, with Contreras driving in 4 of the 9 runs.  All in all, a great first game.  Up next: The Mustangs take on Great Falls again, with Shea Snowden getting the ball at 9:05 ET.
  • The GCL Reds lost their opener 5-0 against the GCL Orioles, with most of the runs coming off of a rough inning by Marcos Molina.  Starter Pedro Villarreal went 3 scoreless innings, and Nathan Driessen pitched 4 innings without giving up an earned run, but the offense was pretty anemic.  Cristobal Rodriguez led the way going 3-for-4, and Billy Hamilton and Theodis Bowe started their seasons on a good foot, both going 2-for-4.  As far as top prospects go, Yorman Rodriguez was 1-for-4 with 3 strikeouts playing center field, and the day's DH Juan Duran was 0-for-4.  Up next: The GCL Reds take on the GCL Red Sox at noon.  No starter listed here either.
  • Roster Moves: Tom Cochran is back with the Mudcats after Alexander Smit went on the DL, and Jeremy Horst goes back to High-A.
