Farmers Only: What's Yours is McMyne

  • Louisville fell to Rochester 5-4, despite a homer by Bumpin' Bill Rhinehart and a quality start from Pedro Villareal (that was blown by Nick Christiani). The Texan hurler went six and two-thirds, giving up 3 runs on 9 hits, striking out 2 and walking none. Villareal has proven to be a welcome addition to a mostly uninspiring Louisville club, and I'm looking forward to seeing how he performs the rest of the year. If he continues to pitch well, there's a chance he could see a spot start down the road, depending on health and how the front office responds to invented blog hashtag campaigns. Miguel Rojas had 2 hits as the SS, and I think he's another exciting Bat to keep an eye on. Up next: Chad Reineke (1-2, 3.96 ERA) faces cRochester at 7:05.
  • Pensacola won a pitcher's duel against Birmingham, coming out on top, 2-0. Despite being outhit 6-4, the Wahoos rode 7 scoreless innings from Tim Crabbe, who gave up just 6 hits, while walking and striking out 4. Curtis Partch and Donnie Joseph combined to strike out 5 in two perfect innings. DoJo has five-finger death punched his way to a positively Chapmanic line so far, with a 30 to 4 K:BB ratio in 20 innings in 2012. Thank you sir may I have another! The Hellflower pinch-wanged a bongalong to account for both Wahoo runs. Up next: The 'Hoos are off tomorrow, and travel to Jacksonville to kick off a series on Thursday.
  • Bakersfield swept a doubleheader against Stockton, winning 2-1 and 6-1. Bryson Smith paced the Blaze in the first game, going 2-3 with a homer, while Jamie Walczak poached a win from Daniel Renkin' Ball, tossing 2 scoreless innings to close it out. Juan Duran also Durangoed a solo homer. While the 2-1 win was impressive, the second game featured another Billy Hamilton XBH-fest, as the Human Hadron Collider had a double and a triple with 3 RBI. That's his 7th tri-bagger of the year, by the way. Sluggin' Theo Bowe hit a home run, which was kind of weird. Maybe he's trying to shift the competition with Billy to homers? I dunno. Pat Doyle almost pitched 6 perfect innings, giving up just a first-inning single. Up next: More Stockton action at 10:30 PM eastern, no starters announced yet.
  • Dayton was on the wrong end of another low-scoring game, losing 2-1 to Lansing. Catcher Yovan Gonzalez was ejected in the fourth inning, and Tanner Robles followed suit shortly thereafter. Apparently Bob Davidson umps Midwest League games. Dayton outhit the Ludwicks Lugnuts 7-5, but went just 1-10 with RISP. Positively 2011 Reds-esque. Juan Silva was the only Dragon with multiple hits, whopping 2 singles. Kyle McMyne, Lucas O'Rear, and Carlos Contreras finished out the game without giving up a run. This Dayton offense is putrid, but fortunately, the pitching. Well, not fortunately enough, since they keep losing. Up next: The Dragons head to Bowling Green to take on the Hot Rods at 7:35. Stalin "Gina" Gerson (1-3, 4.66 ERA) takes the mound.
