Farmers Only: An organization sweep, and There's Something About Neftali

Yesterday was of those rare days where every team in the organization won.  6 for 6, with only Billings with an off day.  Optimism!

  • Louisville held off a late inning rally by Gwinnett to win 9-6.  Matt Maloney started and only went 3 innings.  Jeremy Hermida was 4-for-5, and both Yonder Alonso and Paul Janish homered for the Bats.  Up next: Chad Reineke gets the ball against Gwinnett at 12:05.
  • Carolina won 7-4 against Tennessee by way of a potent offense.  Neftali Soto hit 2 more homers (and drove in 3) to bring his long-ball total to 18 on the year.  He's only 3 away from last year's total of 21, with about half as many ABs.  What's even weirder is that not even 2 months ago, he was sitting on 3 homers for the year before catching fire.  I'm not sure if he just found his stroke or what, but is there a chance that this takes the sting out of a possible Yonder deal?  Also of note, Denis Phipps, Eric Campbell, and Jose Castro collected 3 hits each.  Pedro Villarreal started and gave up 4 runs in 6 innings, and the bullpen combined for 3 one-hit innings.  Up next: Cats take on Tennessee at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield beat San Jose 8-4.  Mark Serrano started and gave up 2 runs in 6 innings to earn the win.  Brodie Greene hit his 9th homer and Kevin Coddington went 3-for-4 and drove in 5 runs.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran gets the ball against SJ at 10:45.
  • Dayton beat Peoria 13-5 behind some offense and the hot arm of Daniel Corcino.  The man they call Baby Cueto pitched 6 innings of 4 run ball, with 5 strikeouts, and earned his 9th win of the year.  Ronald Torreyes was 4-for-5, and David Vidal drove in 4 runs with his 3 hits.  Juan Duran hit his 10th homer of the year, a 3-run shot, and the Dragons couldn't be caught.  Up next: Daniel Renken takes on the Chiefs at 7.
  • Billings were off.  They'll take on Orem at 9:05 with Ismael Guillon taking the mound.
  • The AZL Reds beat the AZL Padres 8-2.  Ryan Wright continued his hot hitting, going 3-for-4, and Tanner Robles pitched well, only giving up 2 hits and no runs in 6 innings of work, with 9 strikeouts.  Why couldn't he do that in Dayton?  Up next: AZL Angels at 10.
