Farmers Only: Chapman finally found the plate, but the Bats' pitching sprung a Leake all of a sudden

  • Louisville lost 6-3 to Norfolk.  Aroldis Chapman started the game and pitched one perfect inning.  8 pitches, 6 strikes.  Wonder what we were so worried about?  Mike Leake, on the other hand, didn't fare so well, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits in his 2 innings of work.  Jeremy Horst came next and pitched 4 2/3, giving up 2 earned runs to get the loss.  Chris Valaika was 2-for-4 with a homer, and Brent Clevlen had two hits as well.  Up next: Day game action as the Bats take on Norfolk at 12:15.  Starter is to be announced, but my money's on Justin Lehr.
  • Carolina lost 9-3 to Chattanooga.  Cody Puckett and Neftali Soto both homered for the Mudcats, and Quintin Berry and Felix Perez had two hits each.  Unfortunately, the pitching.  James Avery gave up 5 runs in 6 2/3 innings, and Donnie Joseph brought his gas can and gave up 4 more in the 8th to put it out of reach.  His ERA is now 10.80 on the season.  Yikes.  Up next: Mudcats take on the Lookouts once again at 7:15, with the newest Mudcat Brandon Hynick getting the start.  Hynick signed with the Reds last week after spending time in the Rockies and White Sox organizations.  Side note:  As most of you know, the Carolina Mudcats are converting to a High-A team next season, meaning the Reds won't be affiliated with them anymore.  Instead, they'll be taking an expansion team in Pensacola, who announced their new name today.  Say hello to the 2012 Reds AA affiliate, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos!
  • Bakersfield won 10-8 against Modesto.  Josh Fellhauer was 3-for-6 to drive in 3 runs and Yasmani Grandal also notched 3 RBI with his two doubles.  4 other Blaze(s) also scored multi-hit games.  Lance Janke gave up 5 runs in 6 innings, and Ryan Smith pitched 1 2/3 shutout innings for the win.  Doug Salinas pitched a perfect 12th inning for his 4th save.  Up next: Blaze are off today.
  • Dayton lost 6-3 to Lake County.  Theo Bowe was 2-for-4 to lead the way on offense.  Daniel Corcino started and gave up 1 run in 2 innings, but a rain delay prevented him from going longer.  Billy Hamilton was 0-for-2 with 2 walks, but still managed to steal 3 bases, bringing his season total to 37.  In May.  Up next: Daniel Tuttle takes the mound against Great Lakes at 7:05.
