Farmers Only: Lynchburg's Starter Un-Fairel-ly Pulled?

  • Louisville got shut out by Indianapolis 3-0Travis Wood started for the Bats and had a decent outing, only allowing 2 ER on 2 H in 6 2/3 IP while striking out 5.  Oh yeah, and he had two of the Bats 4 hits off of Pirates prospect Brad LincolnUp next: Matt Maloney takes his shot at the Indians, at home at 7:05.
  • Carolina also got shut out 3-0, their game at the hands of Montgomery.  Matt Klinker started for the Mudcats and pitched 5 2/3 innings of 2-run ball while striking out 6 Biscuits.  Daryl Harang and Jerry Gil had scoreless outings in relief, but the run support wasn't there to mount a comeback.  Denis Phipps had a double (he's batting .304 so far this year), and that was the only extra base hit for the Mudcats.  Up next: Dallas Buck takes on Montgomery at 7:15.

  • Lynchburg beat Salem 5-3, behind an absolutely stellar start by Matt Fairel.  Fairel struck out 5 in 6 perfect innings (save for one Gualdron error) before getting pulled for Justin Freeman in relief.  Not sure what kind of manager pulls his starter in the middle of a perfect outing, but Pat Kelly and pitching coach Rigo Beltran must have some kind of reason.  On the offensive side, Jose Gualdron led the offense going 3-for-3 with 3 doubles, and Josh Fellhauer doubled in 2 runs.  Another thing worth noting, is that Neftali Soto spent his game behind the plate, batting third and going 1-for-4.  Up next: The Hillcats take on Salem again at 6:05, with Curtis Partch taking the hill.
  • Chris Richburg

  • Dayton lost a wild one in extra innings, blowing a 12th inning lead to lose 6-5 to Fort Wayne.  Dayton got most of their runs on a Chris Richburg grand slam in the 7th inning, and Mariekson Gregorius went 3-for-6 with a double.  Pedro Villarreal had a quality start for the Dragons before Nick Christiani blew the save, and Donnie Joseph stepped up with two perfect innings of relief.  After taking the lead 5-4 in the 12th on a sac fly, an error by Gregorius scored the tying run for the Tin Caps and a single one batter later was the winning run.  Up next: Dragons take on Fort Wayne at 7:05 behind Brian Pearl.
