- Louisville lost to Norfolk 11-4, despite only garnering 3 less hits. Sean Gallagher went 5 innings, giving up 5 runs on 5 hits, a 5 dollar footlong, and 5 gold rings. Jordan Smith pulled his best Mike Lincoln impression, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) in an inning of work. Future savior of mankind and son of God Mike Costanzo went 2-4 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI, and none of the other Bats had multiple hits. Corky Miller went 1-4 and cured mustache cancer, by the way. Up next: Newly be-Batted Pedro Villareal makes his first start for the 'Ville against the Tides at 11:05 ET.
- Pensacola lost a rain-shortened, 7 inning affair against the Mississippi Braves, 3-1. Newly be-Wahooed Kyle Lotzkar had a solid AA debut, going 6 strong innings, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits, with 3 walks and 2 Ks. A good start for the oft-injured, second-best Canadian in the organization. As with the Bats, only 1 Wahoo had multiple hits, and that was Brodie "Thanks For the Push Ahman" Greene. All 6 of the Wahoo hits were singles, and 11 of the 12 hits in the game were of the one-bag variety. For the record, Mississippi has someone named Ian "Nickelodeon" Gac on its roster (he went 0-3). I thought that was cool. Up next: Daniel Corcino (2-1, 2.61 ERA) takes on Mississippi at high noon.
Bakersfield beat Lancaster in a close one, 3-2. Justice French
defeated incumbent Nicolas Sarkozypitched 6 shutout innings, giving up 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4. Kaiser Knockwurst gebongened a solo schwangerstugel in the top of the ninth (his tenth of the year) to give the Blaze the lead for good, though it was his only hit of the night. Billy Hamilton was a rare non-factor in the game, going 0-4 with no steals. That was nice of him. Andrew "Double Rainbow, What Does It" Means went 2-3 out of the major league catcher's spot (that would be eighth) to pace the offense, knocking in the other two runs with his seventh-inning single. David Vidal, who also singled in the seventh (and came around to score on Means' hit), has hit safely in seven of his last eight, and is OPS'ing .941 on the year. Oh, and he's 14.5 years younger than Scott Rolen. Up next: Daniel Renken (3-1, 4.64 ERA) takes on Lancaster at 10:00 ET.
- Dayton improbably played both games of their doubleheader with Fort Wayne, splitting it. They were mercifully put down in the 15th (that's 8 full innings of extra baseball) of the first game, losing 3-1 after blog favorite El'Hajj Muhammad gave up 2 runs in his third inning of work after Dan Jensen, Ryan Kemp, Carlos Contreras, and Ryan Kiel combined to hold the TinCaps to 1 unearned run over 12 frames. The Dragons' pathetic offense couldn't get much going, as Steve "Accountant" Selsky was the only batter with multiple hits. They won the second game 4-2 behind another solid performance from The Accountant, who hit a 2-run squiggity-squanger to bring his RBI total for the day to 3. Rowdy Radhamas Quezada continued his solid season, going 5 innings and giving up just 1 earned run on 4 hits with 6 Ks, though he did walk 4. Up next: Daniel Tuttle (1-1, 2.55 ERA) takes on Lake County at 6:30 ET.
