Farmers Only: Who Needs the Farm? SWEEP!

Quick and dirty as I'm filling in. Man oh man that sweep felt good.

  • Louisville lost to Indy in a long heartbreaker of a pitcher's duel, 2-1. The 15-inning affair featured an admirable 7 inning performance from Jeff "Plan B" Francis, who gave up just 1 run on 4 hits. Nick Christiani and Scott Carroll combined for 5 scoreless relief innings before Jordan Smith gave it away in the 15th. Despite 11 hits from the Bats, only 2 went for extra bases (doubles from Dioner Navarro and Bill Rhinehart). Joey Gathright went 1 for 1 with a walk as a PH/CF in his first game for Louisville. Up next: Pedro Villareal (2-0, 3.32 ERA) looks to continue his success in AAA against Indy at 7:15.
  • Pensacola beat the Mississippi Braves 4-2 thanks in large part to Yordanys "the Menace" Perez and his 2-3 day that included mistering a solo Wilson and an RBI single. The Hellflower went 2-4 with a double as well, providing the offensive support for a decent, if unspectacular, outing from J.C. Sulbaran, who lasted five and two-thirds, giving up 2 runs on 7 hits, striking out 3 and walking 2. DoJo continued to roundhouse kick opponents in the face with his curveballs, striking out 3 in 1.2 innings for his 11th save on the year. Oh, and Ryan LaMarre had 2 outfield assists. Nice. Up next: Kyle Lotzkar (1-1, 1.10 ERA) looks to make poutine out of the Braves at 8.
  • Bakersfield lost in extras to San Jose, 4-3, in the 12th inning. Chris Joyce blew it. Sir Quix-a-Lot stole 2 bases, and Devin Lohman and Juan Duran joined The Knockwurst in slamming pogs over the fence. Maybe it's just the Cal League, but Lohman has already honked half as many wangers as he did all of last year. We really do have a glut of middle infield talent, even if Lohman's ceiling is limited. Tony Cingrani had his first human outing, giving up two whole runs in 5.1 innings of work, striking out a mere 4, and walking 2. Hopefully he's just working on that breaking ball. Up next: Justice French Onion Soup (0-0, 1.06) aims to souffle San Jose (that's fun to say out loud) at everyone-will-be-drinking o'clock (10:30 ET).
  • Dayton learned the hard way that walks will haunt, losing to Lansing 5-2 after the pitching staff walked 12 on the night. Dan Jensen had a WHIP of 3.00 in his 4 innings as a starter, while James Allen and El'Hajj Muhammad matched him in finishing out the game, though the former didn't allow a run in his 3 innings of work. Kurtis Muller was the only Dragon with more than 1 hit, going 2-4 with the lone RBI (the other run scored on an error). Up next: Rowdy Rad Quezada (1-5, 3.65) takes the hill in the rubber match against Lansing at 7:05.
