Farmers Only: Going Back to Cali

  • Louisville kept their hot streak going, beating the Buffalo Bisons 5-3. Felix Perez once again led the offense for the Bats, going 4-5 with two doubles. The guy isn't really a prospect, but he's been hitting the ball well lately nonetheless, and has a .994 OPS over the last 10 games. Tim Gustafson started, and was lucky to only allow 2 runs, as he gave up 7 hits and walked two batters. Recently demoted J.J. Hoover got the win in one perfect inning of relief. I'd still like to see him stretched out in the event that a spot start is needed for the big league club. DoJo got the save, and hasn't allowed an earned run in 8.1 innings so far at AAA. His performance this year has been very encouraging. Let's hope he keeps it up. Up Next: Pedro Villarreal (2-4, 3.86 ERA) faces off against the Bisons at 1:05 pm EDT.
  • Pensacola lost to the Generals 4-2. No Wahoo had a multi-hit game, and all 6 of their hits were singles. Tim Crabbe was the starter and gave up 4 runs, 1 unearned thanks to a David Vidal error. Brian Pearl and Mark Serrano combined for 4 scoreless relief innings. Up Next: The Blue Wahoos continue their series against Jackson at 8:00 pm EDT with Tony Cingrani (1-1, 2.95 ERA) scheduled to start.
  • Bakersfield lost to Visalia 4-3. Travis Mattair did his best to try and single handedly win the game for the Blaze, going 3-4 with a wanger and all 3 Bako RBIs. Billy Quix went 1-5 with a run scored and his 92nd (!) stolen base of the season. Josh Smith was missing bats, striking out 7 in 5 IP, but fell victim to a 2-run dinger. Up Next: Jamie (Is the J soft?) Walczak (2-1, 5.32 ERA) takes the mound against the Rawhide at 10:00 pm EDT.
  • Dayton spoiled a solid start by Stalin Gerson losing to the Lake County Captains 5-2 in 12 innings. The two Dragons runs were scored on solo honkers by Juan Perez and Nick O'Shea. Up Next: Someone named Gonzalez (0-2, 6.43 ERA) will start against the Captains at 7:00 pm EDT.
  • Billings beat Great Falls 9-6 in a slugfest. Jesse Winker has continued his hot start to his professional career, going 3-3 with a double and two walks #callhimup. Six of the Mustangs batters had multi-hit games. Up Next: Drew Cisco takes on the Voyagers at 9:05 pm EDT.
  • The AZL Reds lost to the Giants in another high-scoring affair. Herr Lutz blitzkrieg'd the Giants with an impressive 4-4 night with a double and 2 triples. Yes, the Big Knockwurst somehow managed two triples in a game. I wish there was video of this somewhere. He is scheduled to rejoin the Blaze today. Starter Vaughn Covington gave up 9 runs, but thanks a whopping 6 errors, only 1 run was earned. Arizona League games are silly. Up Next: I could be wrong, but I think the AZL Reds have the day off today.
