Farmers Only: Louisville keeps up with the Reds, and a certain former #1 pick is owning the Carolina League

Times are good in Louisville right now

Remember about a week ago when we here at FO were bemoaning the bad luck and bad play of our AAA affiliate?  My, how times have changed.  The Bats are on a tear right now, having won 4 of their last 5 and scoring 55 runs over that span.  Also, for all the haters, I'd like to direct your attention to a certain catcher in Lynchburg.  He's OPSing 1.098 right now, with 7 homers, 22 RBI, and even 2 stolen bases.  That's just plain gettin' it done. 

  • Louisville didn't want the Reds to get all of the attention, so they made sure to not only pitch a shutout, but also score a couple extra runs, beating Buffalo 11-0.  Matt Maloney threw 4 shutout innings.  We've got a team on the ground trying to find out if he left because of blisters or if there was another reason.  Film at 11....Luis Terrero led the offense, going 5-5 with a double, HR, and 5 RBI.  Wladimir Balentien was 2-5 with a homer, and 6 other Bats reached base safely at least once. Up Next: Sam LeCure takes on Buffalo at 11:05 a.m.
  • Carolina lost a tough one, 4-3.  Daryl Thompson had a strong start, lasting 7 innings, allowing 2 runs, and striking out 7.  Jerry Gil gave up the lead and took the loss in relief, allowing 2 runs and 3 walks in just a third of an inning.  Jake Kahaulelio was 2-4 with his 4th homer of the season.  Up Next: Tom Cochran takes the hill against Tennessee at 7:15. 
  • Lynchburg won a thriller, 9-8.  Scott Carroll pitched 7 innings, allowing only 1 unearned run, to earn the victory.  Anyone still worried about Devin Mesoraco?  Last night he went 3-5 with a triple, homer, and 5 RBI.  His line on the season is .347/.435/.663 in 115 PAs.  Up Next: Curtis Partch takes on Wilmington at 6:35.
  • Dayton won 7-3.  Pedro Villareal earned the win, striking out 7 in 5 2/3 innings.  Donnie Joseph struck out 2 more in a scoreless inning of relief.  Henry Rodriguez was 4-5, Mariekson Gregorius was 2-5, and Mark Fleury was 2-4 with a double.  No doubt the team won because of the strong RR support they received.  Up Next: Josh Ravin takes the hill against Fort Wayne at 7:00.
