Farmers Only: Is Jordan Smith the next reliever in line?

  • Louisville lost 6-5 to Toledo in 11 innings.  Chris Valaika had a good night, going 3-for-5 with 2 doubles and Jeremy Hermida hit a 3-run homer, his 15th of the year.  Chad Reineke started and gave up 2 runs in 4 innings, and Jared Burton (you know, the guy people on twitter are itching to see in the Reds bullpen) gave up 3 runs in 2/3 of an inning.  Carlos Fisher and Jordan Smith pitched 2 scoreless innings each, and both pose better options than Burton right now.  That's 5 straight scoreless appearances for Smith (6 IP).  Up next: Edinson Volquez takes on Indy at 7:05.
  • Carolina lost 6-4 to Montgomery.  Quintin Berry and Mike Costanzo had two hits each, and Didi Gregorius (remember him?) was 2-for-3 with his first homer of the year.  Up next: Mudcats take on the Biscuits at 7:15, starter TBA.
  • Bakersfield lost 6-3 to Rancho Cucamonga.  Mark Serrano struggled in his start, giving up 5 runs in less than 5 innings, but struck out 6.  Carlos Mendez and Jorge Jimenez drove in runs.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran takes on the Quakes at 10:05.
  • Dayton beat West Michigan 7-2.  Stalin Gerson gave up 2 runs in 5 2/3 innings.  Jefry Sierra led the way with 3 hits, and Juan Duran and David Vidal homered for the Dragons.  Up next: Josh Smith takes on West Michigan at 7.
  • Billings beat Great Falls 10-6.  It was a big night for the middle of the order, as Sean Buckley and Kyle Waldrop were both 3-for-5 with a homer and Robert Maddox had a solo shot as well.  Buckley's the only 'Stang hitting over .300 right now.  Ismael Guillon gave up 4 runs in 4 innings in his start, but impressively struck out 8.  Up next: Kyle McMyne takes on GF at 9:05.
  • The AZL Reds beat the AZL D-Backs 7-4.  Justice French gave up 2 runs in 6 innings pitched in his start, and Gabriel Rosa (formerly of the stale list a few weeks ago) was 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored.  Up next: Off day.
