  • Louisville dismantled Buffalo by a 20-7 score, erasing a disappointing start by Aroldis Chapman.  Chapman gave up 6 runs in 5 innings with 8 strikeouts, and the Soulsucker himself Ben Jukich cleaned up the mess with 4 innings of 1-run relief, enough to earn a save in a 13-run win.  Let's go over the offensive stars for this one.  Zack Cozart: 2-for-7 with a HR.  Chris Valaika: 3-for-7.  Danny Dorn: 4-for-5 with 3 RBI.  Wladimir Balentien: 3-for-6 with 2 RBI.  Juan Francisco: 4-for-5 with 4 RBI.  Corky Miller: 3-for-5 with a HR and 5 RBI.  Oh yeah, I forgot one.  Aroldis Chapman: 2-for-2 with a double and a RBI.  Seriously.  Big night all around, with 11 doubles in the 24 hits for the Bats.  Up next: Justin Lehr takes his turn against Buffalo at 7:05.  
  • Carolina lost a close one, despite a 5-run rally in the 8th inning to fall 6-5 to MobileKris Negron and Dave Sappelt both had two hits, and Travis Webb gave up 4 runs in 5 1/3 innings in his start.  Up next: Mudcats have a much needed day off today.  They lost 14 of their last 15 games.
  • Brad Boxberger
    Boxy Brown
  • Lynchburg beat Kinston 4-1 behind another great start by Brad Boxberger.  Boxy pitched 6 shutout innings with 3 strikeouts.  Is it time to start thinking about getting him a ticket to Zebulon?  Nick Christiani added two perfect innings out of the bullpen as well.  Miguel Rojas, Justin Reed, Josh Fellhauer, and Neftali Soto all had two hits in the game, and Soto knocked his 4th home run of the season.  Up next: Mark Serrano takes on Kinston at 6:05.
  • Dayton beat up on Bowling Green 10-5, behind a big night by the offense.  Henry Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with 3 RBI, Shane Carlson went 3-for-3 with 2 RBI, and the fresh-off-the-DL Kevin Coddington added 3 hits of his own.  Justin Walker pitched 6 innings and gave up 4 ER, and Doug Salinas, Ezequiel Infante, and Donnie Joseph closed it out with a scoreless inning each.  Up next: Pedro Villarreal takes on Lake County at 6:30.
