So I went to the Reds game with BK, tHan, and jch24 and just got back (about 12:45) . So I go to do the minors write-up, and stupid Bakersfield still isn't done playing. Ok, so there's a tornado warning here, so I'm now sitting in the basement with my sleepy parents. Maybe by the time this thing is finished, Bakersfield will be too. Regardless, I can't stress how dumb it is for an EST team to have a West Coast affiliate. Aaaaand, Bakersfield is done.
- Louisville won again, 4-2, to drive their record to 10-3 on the year. Dave Sappelt did what Dave Sappelt do: 3-5 with a double and triple. Yonder Alonso also had 2 hits and a walk. He's starting to heat up a bit. Chad Reineke got the win, lasting 6 IP and giving up the 2 runs.
- Carolina lost again, 6-2. Justin Lehr, recently added to the roster, got the start and gave up 4 ER in 3.1 IP. Mike Costanzo (Costanzo!) hit his 4th HR.
- Bakersfield lost 4-2. Curtis Partch was the bad-luck loser, giving up 4 unearned runs in 7.1 IP. The Blaze committed 3 errors. Josh Fellhauer had 3 hits including a homer.
- Dayton won 7-2. Tanner Robles is back in Dayton and made a strong start, lasting 5 IP and giving up just 1 ER. Also, who says Billy Hamilton has no power? He hit his first homer tonight. Donald Lutz had 3 hits, including a double. The team's bats finally came alive, racking up 12 hits including 6 XBH.
