Farmers Only: In the time it took you to read this headline, Daniel Renken struck someone out

  • Louisville lost 3-1 to Gwinnett.  Dontrelle Willis started and went 6 1/3 innings, giving up 1 run and striking out 6 in the process.  Another solid start, and Brad Boxberger made his AAA debut, getting the final 2 outs in the 7th.  Jeremy Horst came in and surrendered 2 runs in the 9th, which wouldn't have been a big deal if the offense could get anything together.  Juan Francisco and (surprise, surprise) Zack Cozart had 2 hits each.  Up next: Chad Reineke takes on Braves super prospect Julio Teheran tonight at 7:05.  Not a bad day to watch on an off day if you ask me.
  • Carolina lost to Tennessee 3-1.  Neftali Soto went 2-for-4 and didn't hit any homers, because I clearly jinxed him.  James Avery pitched 6 1/3 innings and gave up 3 runs, 2 of which were earned.  Up next: Tim Gustafson takes the hill against Tennessee at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield lost 4-3 to Stockton.  Curtis Partch went 7 innings in his start, giving up 4 runs and striking out 5.  Mark Fleury led the offense, going 3-for-4, and Ryan LaMarre drove in 2 runs.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran goes against Stockton at 10:05.
  • Dayton beat the tar out of Lansing 7-1 behind a dominant pitching performance by Daniel Renken.  Renken pitched 6 shutout innings, only allowing 2 hits and 1 walk.  The big story here is that he struck out 14 hitters, including a stretch where he put down 10 in a row, a team record.  He's currently leading the Midwest League in strikeouts (interestingly, holding a 11 K lead over teammate Josh Smith).  A 25th round pick from last year, he's holding up an absurd 11.3 K/9 ratio, and should absolutely be in Bakersfield.  On offense, Juan Duran and Yorman Rodriguez had 3 hits each, and Zinzinnati's favorite German baseball player Donald Lutz hit his 11th homer of the year.  Up next: Kyle Lotzkar takes on Bowling Green at 7.
  • Billings lost 4-2 to Helena.  Ismael Guillon had control problems again, walking 6 for the second start in a row, but only gave up 2 runs in the 4 innings he pitched.  El'Hajj Muhammad stepped up and pitched 3 shutout innings of relief.  Kyle Waldrop and Kurtis Muller had 2 hits each, and Devin Lohman homered.  Up next: Wes Mugarian takes on Helena at 9:05.
  • The AZL Reds beat the AZL Royals 14-6.  Brandon Dailey went 3-for-4 with 2 walks and 4 RBI, as the team collected 14 hits in all.  Daniel Tuttle started and gave up 4 runs (3 earned) in 5 innings, with 8 strikeouts.  Up next: AZL Mariners at 10.
