Farmers Only: Maloney and Wood shine

First things first.  Jay Bruce and Ryan Hanigan have both reported to Louisville on rehab.  Also, most of the Carolina pitching staff from a few months ago are now with the AAA team.  A couple of recent callups are starters Tom Cochran and Camilo Vazquez, and stud reliever Joseph "The Cycle" Krebs.

  • Louisville beat Indy 4-2 behind another good start by Travis Wood.  Woody gave up 1 run in 5 innings of work, and struck out 6 IndiansLogan Ondrusek earned his 11th save for the Bats with a perfect 9th, dropping his ERA to 1.93 in AAA.  Juan Francisco had two hits for the offense, and Daniel Dorn drove in 2 runs with a pinch-hit double.  Up next: Ben Jukich takes on Indy at 7:15.
  • Carolina went back and forth in their game against Mississippi before they won 6-5Matt Maloney had a great start, pitching 7 innings and giving up 1 run on a solo HR, and left with a 3-1 lead.  After Zach Ward predictably blew it, the Mudcats battled back with 2 in the 8th only to give up 2 in the top of the 9th.  Jose Castro broke the tie again in the 9th with a game winning single.  Jason Bour and Sean Henry each had 3 hits for the Mudcats, and for some reason shortstop Kris Negron started the game in CF.  Not sure where that came from, but we'll see if it becomes a trend.  Up next: Luis Montano takes on Mississippi at 7:15.
  • Sarasota lost to Palm Beach 3-2, as the normally automatic Mace Thurman gave up the winning run.  Dave Sappelt was 3-for-4, and Alex Buchholz had a multi-hit game too.  Travis Webb started, and gave up 4 runs (1 earned) in 5 innings.  Up next: Lance Janke takes the hill against Palm Beach at 7:05.
  • Dayton beat South Bend 5-3 behind a solid start by J.C. Sulbaran.  Sulbaran gave up 3 runs in 6 innings of work for his 5th win of the year.  Carlos Mendez drove in 3 runs with his 3 hits, and Kevin Coddington added a solo shot.  Up next: Chase Ware takes on South Bend at 7.
  • Billings lost to Great Falls 4-3 in 10.  Efrain Contreras and Thomas Nurre both homered.  Leonardo Astorga gave up 1 run in 5 innings.  Frank Pfister was 3-for-5.  Up next: Billings takes on Helena at 9:05.
