Farmers Only: Bacon and Rawhide

  • Louisville was shut out by Dave Bush (yup, that Dave Bush) and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs 2-0. Bush went the distance, giving up just 5 hits, two of which came from newly promoted Cody "Not Related to Kirby" Puckett. The diminutive outfielder has had a semi-respectable OPS his whole minor league career, and is 6-17 since joining the Bats. It'd be nice if he walked more, but he could conceivably be a 4th or 5th OFer for someone. The other 3 Louisville hits came from Mike the Red (Miguel Rojas), Bill Rhinehart, and Danny Dorn. Despite walking 6, Brett Tomko went 7 strong only giving up a run on 4 hits. Up next: The Bats are off Wednesday, but begin a series in Indianapolis on Thursday at 7:05.
  • Pensacola was off Tuesday. Up next: Tim Gustafson (2-0, 4.05 ERA) takes the hill in a new series against Mississippi at home at 8 ET.
  • Bakersfield whupped up on Visalia, walloping 19 hits en route to a 14-6 victory. Billy Hamilton was tired of slumping, so he got on base 4 times (2B, 1Bx2, BB) and stole 2 more bags. Devin Lohman was the Hi-man on the totem pole, honkling two wangerdoodles as part of a 6 RBI night. Every Bakersfield starter had a hit in this game, including Tucker Barnhart, who went 2-5 with a double. He's not hitting for much power, but he's brought his OBP all the way back up to .340, and has reached base in 8 of his last 10 contests. Juan Duran was hungry like the wolf, going 3-5 with 4 RBIs. Señor Boring Name (of the Josh Smith variety) pitched well enough, going 6 and 1/3 innings, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits. Up next: The Blaze are off Wednesday as well, but start a new series on Thursday at home against San Jose.
  • Dayton was off as well on Tuesday as the Dragons basked in the elusive glow of a win. Up next: Jacob Johnson (0-0, 1.80 ERA) heads to Lansing with the Dragons to take on Lansing.
