Farmers Only: The Knockwurst Knocks

  • Louisville split a double header yesterday, winning 5-1 in the first game and losing 4-3 in the second. In game one, the Bats sent Sean Gallagher to the mound. The Watermelon Man flirted with trouble all night, but only allowed one of ten baserunners to cross the plate in a 6-inning effort. Dioner Navarro has been red hot in the month of May, batting .455/.417/.455 line over the last two weeks, suck it indeed. Billy "over the" Rhinehart knocked in two on a double off the wall in the Bats 5-run 4th inning. Game two was an all-bullpen affair where the newest member of the Louisville Bats Wirfin Obispo got the "start," throwing 2 innings of 1-run ball. Scott Carrol got tagged with the loss, giving up 3 runs in 1.2 IP, despite striking out 3 IronPigs. Ol' Hitslikeshit, continued to hit like shit, even though he's facing inferior competition. He went 0-6 in the double header, dropping his average down to .154. Up Next: The Bats head to Rochester to face the Red Wings at 7:05. Pedro Villarreal (1-0, 3.18 ERA) is scheduled to start.
  • Pensacola got beat by the Birmingham Barons 8-4. Lil' Cueto started for the Wahoos, and struggled mightily, giving up 6 earned runs in the first 2 innings. He was able to settle down and get through another 3 innings, fanning 7 and walking 4. Corcino learned the hard way that wangers will haunt, as 5 of the 6 runs were via the long ball. Ryan LaMarre continued his singles-hitting ways, going 2-3 with a walk. Didi Gregorius has struggled of late, but went 1-3 with a triple and an RBI last night. Cody Puckett and Joel Guzman both hit solo shots. Up Next: Time Crabbe (1-2, 5.13 ERA) toes the rubber for the Blue Wahoos as they take on the Barons at 8pm.
  • Bakersfield spanked the Stockton Ports 11-6. Justice French got the start, and he racked up his second scoreless outing in as many tries after getting the promotion from Dayton. Billy Hamilton has fallen back to earth as of late, going 0-5 tonight. He was caught stealing in his only attempt. Donald Lutz tore it up, going 5-5 with a homer and 3 RBI's #CallHimUP. Up Next: The Blaze play a double header against the Ports starting at 6pm. No starters have been announced yet.
  • Dayton lost to the Lansing Lugnuts 4-2. The Dragons were able to get 'em on, a couple times they got 'em over, but like they do most nights, they couldn't get 'em in. Rowdy Radhames Quezada had trouble finding the strike zone tonight, walking 6 and allowing 3 runs in 4 IP. Steve Selsky, the Reds 33rd round pick from last year was the only Dragon to have a multi-hit game. Some other guys did some stuff, but they still lost anyway. This team is booorrrinnng. Up Next: The Dragons send the honkiest dude named Robles (2-2, 2.72 ERA) I've ever seen to face the Lugnuts again at 7pm.
