- Louisville lost to the Syracuse Chiefs 2-1, same as it ever was. You may find yourself a pop-gun hitter. You may ask yourself, how did I get here (with a .627 OPS)? You may ask yourself, how do I work this? Letting the days go by, Kris Negron is the next
sub-replacement player to take a ride on the merry-go-round. We wish you all the best, good sir. Joey Gathright failed to put the pressure on Negron, going 0-4 with a strikeout. Pedro Villarreal went 6 innings with a 4 H, 1 ER, 1 K, 0 BB line. Up Next: The Watermelon Man (4-3, 5.17 ERA) takes the mound in Syracuse at 7 pm.
- Pensacola also lost 2-1. Daniel Corcino rebounded from a rough start his last time out, going 5 innings with 5 K, 1 BB and 2 ER. Tonight was an encouraging performance, as Cuetinho has struggled to find the zone over the last few weeks (25 of his 28 walks has occurred over the last 10 games). The 'Hoos couldn't muster much on offense, with none of their 6 hits going for extra bases. Ryan LaMarre went 3-4, which is nice. Up Next: Tim Crabbe (2-2, 4.00 ERA) faces off, John Travolta-style, against the Birmingham Barons at 8:05 pm.
- Bakersfield beat the Visalia Rawhides 5-1. Walkin' Billy went 1-3 with a run scored and 2 BBs. In the 7th inning, Hamilton reached on a single, stole 2B, then promptly stole 3B and scored on a Bryson Smith single. A genuine Billy Rally. Chad "Sharky" Rogers had yet another solid start, allowing 1 R over 7.2 IP, with 4 K and 0 BB. Up Next: The Blaze wrap up their series against Visalia tonight at 10:30pm. Josh Smith (4-4, 4.27 ERA)
- Dayton made it happen against the Lake County Captains, winning 5-2. Joe Terry did some work, going 2-3 with 2 doubles. Tanner Robles has now been relegated to the second best 'Tanner' in the system, and hurled 6 innings of 3 H, 2 ER, 4 K, 4 BB ball last night. Up Next: Stalin Gerson (3-4, 4.07 ERA) gets the start against the Captains at 7:05 pm.
