It's nice to be back, but I'd like to offer a hearty thank you to BK for covering every FO post for the last 12 days. You're a mensch, BeeK.
- Louisville won 3-2 on a walk off sac fly by Todd Frazier. Travis Wood went 7 IP, giving up just 2 runs while striking out 4. Interestingly, Dontrelle Willis did not appear in this game. Brad Boxberger threw a scoreless inning of relief. Yonder Alonso and Jeremy Hermida both doubled in this pitchers duel. Up Next: Daryl Thompson gets the start at 7:05.
- Carolina was postponed. Up Next: The team has a noon start.
- Bakersfield lost 7-6. Every starter had at least 1 hit. Stephen Hunt, Alex Buchholz, and Brodie Greene each had 2. Hunt's two hits were both doubles. Ryan LaMarre stole 2 bases, giving him 26 on the year. Up Next: Someone will start at 10 p.m.
- Dayton won 8-5. Once again, every starter had at least 1 hit. Ronald Torreyes, Tucker Barnhart, and Jaren Matthews each had 2. Torreyes hit his first homer of the year. Up Next: Daniel Corcino takes the hill at 7:00.
- Billings won 13-9. Lots of guys most of us haven't heard of had a lot of hits. 6 Mustangs pitchers appeared in the game, and none threw more than 2 innings. Up Next: Someone will start at 9:05.
AZL Reds administered and old fashioned butt-whoopin', winning 17-1. Again, lots of new players had a lot of hits. Best Name in the Organization Candidate Justice French struck out 12 batters in 6 IP. He now has 22 Ks in 13 IP. That's some serious justice. Up Next: The team is off Thursday.
