- Louisville made it a losing streak, dropping their second straight contest, 4-2. The Bats managed 2 runs on 5 hits, but Buffalo managed 4 on the same amount, which means that they won. Math, amirite? Future president of the United Colonies of the Moon Mike Costanzo had one of just two extra base hits, the other from (of course) Joey Gathright. Willie Harris came off the bench to do something he'd never do in Cincinnati, going 2-2. Sean Gallagher averaged some average mediocres to cement his legacy as org filler, though Kanekoa Texeira and Jordan Smith chucked 2.2 scoreless. Some guy named Jack Egbert got the win, and I bet he got picked on in that Rob Reiner movie he was probably in. Up next: Ryan Feierabend (1-1, 4.64) has designs on making some Bison jerky at 7:05.
- Pensacola followed suit and then some, getting shut out 6-0 by Jackson. Kyle Lotzkar was notzkar goodzkar, giving up all 6 runs in just under 5 frames. He seemed to have good stuff, though, as he struck out 8 and walked none. Hopefully he's just working on some things. Oh, the offense was 2-hit by Anthony Fernandez, who twirled a CGSHO, matching Lotzkar in strikeouts and walking 1. Didi had a DiDouble. Up next: Your move, Daniel Corcino (3-4, 3.41). Cuetinho tries to match Tony Cingrani against Jackson at 8.
- Bakersfield dropped a squeaker, 6-4, after Modesto scored three unanswered to close out the game. Theo Bowe closed the gap on Billy Hamilton, stealing his 29th base of the season, bringing him a mere...65 short. Bill Quixote was caught stealing for the 20th time, which means that he's attempted steals 114 times already. That light's greener than Chris Dickerson's environmental philosophy. The Knockwurst hustled his schnitzels for a triple during a 2-4 night. Dominic D'Anna sure did his part for the Blaze, going a perfect 4-4. Starter Daniel Renken was positively Bronson Arroyesque, going 8 innings and giving up 4 runs, the tying one in the eighth. Brooks Pinckard took it from there, and the Blaze lost. Up next: Pat Doyle (7-2, 4.15) opposes Modesto at 4:45 your time.
- Dayton, sigh, lost as well. The Dragons kicked off their road trip with a sad trombone, losing 12-4 to
Notre DameSouth Bend. Dan Jensen was knocked around, but got no help from his D, as Yorman Rodriguez and Joe Terry both threw balls away. El'Hajj Muhammed only gave up a run in 2.2 IP, but Cole Green sucked in his two innings, giving up a 5 spot. Shockingly, the Dragons staff allowed no dingers, as all 12 runs scored on 15 singles and a triple (and those 2 errors). Coincidentally, the two errordudes also were the only Dragons with multiple hits, as both went 2-4 on the night. Up next: Radhamas "Make Yourself a Dang" Quezada (5-6, 3.75) answers the call against South Bend at 7:35.
- Billings said "screw this" and won. The Mustangs beat Great Falls on a walk-off wild pitch in the bottom of the tenth, 4-3. Carlos Sanchez had a double and a triple as the first baseman, and Jesse Winker extended his hitting streak to 8 games with a first innings single. Wes Mugarian gave up 3 runs (2 earned) in his 5 innings on the hill, and Joel "Futurama Joke" Bender struck out 6 Voyagers in his 3 perfect innings. Every Mustang in the lineup had a hit. Cool. Up next: The Legend of Bob Steve continues, as Robert Stephenson (0-0, 2.00) takes the hill at 9:05 eastern.
- The AZL Reds beat the AZL Brewers in a similar extra-inningy fashion, scoring one in the top of the tenth to win 8-7. In his first rehab appearance since breaking his wrist, Henry Rodriguez went 1-3 with an RBI double. Good to see ol' Hank-Rod back in action at the hot corner. Tanner Rahier continued to show off impressive plate discipline, walking 3 times in a 1-3 night. A lot of guys pitched. Nothing exceptional. Up next: The AZL Royals are on deck at 10 pm.
