Farmers Only: Offensive Stangsplosions Rock Billings

Apologies for the tardy weekend recap. I ate some Chinese food last night that seems to have had ebola, esurance, and e-coli in it, so I was sidelined for the evening and part of this morning. TMI, Weez. But seriously, my stomach is ouch. On to the games!

  • Louisville dropped 2 of 3 to the Pawtucket Red Sox over the weekend. Friday saw Pedro Villareal hit the DL with a shoulder strain after giving up 5 ER in 4 innings as the PawSawx won 9-1. Denis Phipps had 2 doubles, and no one else did much of anything besides sucking. The lone win came Saturday, as the Bats rode an awesome start by Paul Janish Todd Redmond to win 4-0. Redmond went 7 scoreless innings, giving up just 5 hits and a walk while striking out 8. Not too shabby. Didi Gregorius Orange Julius'd a 3-run shot, and Henry Rodriguez was 2-4. The Bats fell in 12 innings on Sunday, 9-3, after Kanekoa Texeira and Josh Judy gave up 6 runs to push the game far out of reach. DoJo and JJ Hoover blew a 2-run lead earlier in the game. 3 hits were had by Willie Harris, Chris Valaika, and Denis Phipps (the latter two of whom each rangoon'd a solo crab). Up next: Sean Gallagher (8-6, 4.69) takes the hill at 7:05.
  • Pensacola won 2 in a row against Mobile after losing the series opener, 6-2. Billy Hamilton stole a base and walked 3 times (nice), and Beau Mills and Ryan LaMarre Odom each had 2 hits, but Daniel Corcino was less than sharp, giving up 4 ER in his 5 innings, with 2 walks and 4 Ks. LaMarre had 2 more hits the next night, including a Krushed Kardashian to back a decent outing from J.C. Sulburan (5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 7 K), who helped himself out with an RBI triple in a 4-2 Wahoo WaWin. On Sunday, 5 pitchers combined for a 2-hit shutout of Mobile, which was good because the 'Hoos only scored one run, winning 1-0. Billy Billy Billy went 3-4 with a CS (have to give catchers a glimmer of hope), and LaMarre and Brodie Greene each had 2 hits. Ryan LaMarre is OPSing .813 in his last 10 games, and has hit safely in his last 5. Baby steps. Up next: OFF DAY, YO!
  • Bakersfield also took 2 of 3 over the weekend against Visalia. Game 1 was a tough loss, as the Blaze fell 10-8 in 11 innings. Daniel Renken got shelled in his 5 innings. Devin Lohman and Danny "Sid" Vicioso were the only players with multiple hits. The second game was a 10-6 Blaze win, as Steve Selsky was 3-5 and Niko Vasquez and Danny Vicioso each went yard. Tim Crabbe started and was SpongeBob MediocrePants. Game 3 was a breeze, as the Blaze coasted to a 10-3 win. The Selskinator blasted another wanger, and don't look now but he's OPSing a ripe 1.058 this year. He's definitely from the future. Moose Mattair, Dominic "Dunne" D'Anna, Chris Berset, and T-Bowe all contributed offensively, and Tanner Robles was solid in 5.2 innings (5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 6 K). Up next: Blaze are off as well.
  • Dayton beat Clinton like Bob Dole wishes he could've, 7-1 on Friday. Our man Yorman Rodriguez was 3-4, and so was the coach's kid, Sean Buckley, as the team small balled their way to victory (only 1 XBH, 5 BBs, 9 singles, and a 6-run bottom of the eighth). James Allen was a baller, going 7 innings of 4-hit, 1-run ball, walking no one and striking out 7. Saturday saw the Kane County Cougars come to town, and the old ladies preyed on the young Dragons, who lost 9-1. Kyle Waldrop had the lone RBI in a 3-4 day, and no other Dragon had multiple hits. Wes Mugarian was banished north of the wall to the tune of 8 runs in 4 innings. The Cougars struck again on Sunday, beating Dayton 6-2. Waldrop and Junior Arias had two hits each, as Dan Jensen took the loss after giving up 5 runs in 4.2 innings. Meh. Up next: Stalin Gerson (4-7, 4.43) tries to avoid the sweep at 7.
  • Billings opened up a can of whoopazz on the Orem Owlz on Friday, winning 22-6 due in large part (or, rather, half part) to an 11-run eighth inning. A whole lot of lumber in this game, as Robert Maddox was 4-4 with a long ball (which chicks dig, apparently), Brandon Dailey was 3-3 with 5 runs scored, Robert Ramirez had 5 RBI, and Daniel Pigott drove in 6 thanks as part of a 5-6 performance with a double and une wangre honkée. Saturday, the Owlz were not what they seem, as they bounced back to beat the Mustangs 7-3. Walker, Jesse Winker did his BB Thing (4 walks in the series), and Brandon Dailey and Seth Mejias-Brean each had 2 hits. His Excellency Robert Stephenson struck out 4 and walked no one in 5 innings, giving up just a solo homer and 2 harmless singles. Unfortunately, the non-Bob-Steve pitchers. Sunday was another bat-fest for the 'Stangs, who won 13-8, as Jeff "Peanut Butter" Gelalich hit his first professional home run, and Seth M-B was a homer short of the cycle (5-5 in the game). Up next: Slippery Sal Romano (1-3, 6.65) tries to sell Grand Junction a used car at 10:05.
  • The AZL Reds won 2 of 3 over the weekend. They beat the Lil Padres 12-6 on Friday, as Tanner Rahier and Brent Peterson each went 4-5, and Jose Valdelamar had one of his two hits clear the fence. Saturday was less productive, as the Baby Reds lost to the Baby Angels, 7-3. Avain Rachal and Jhimmy Lopez each had 2 hits, and Amir Garrett gave up 2 ER in 2 IP on 2 hits, walking one and striking out one. Sunday was the most interesting game, a 6-4 win over the AZL Cubs, as 2012 first-rounder Nick Travieso made his debut. He tossed a perfect inning, getting 2 groundouts and a K. Rachal, Lopez, Brent Peterson, and Argenis "Alan" Aldazoro all had 2 hits, and Sir Elliot Hargreaves, Viscount of Astonbury went 3-4. Up next: OFF DAY
