Farmers Only: Heartbreaks and Hellflowers

  • Louisville was off tonight. Tomorrow they take on Charlotte, and Tim Gustafson (3-3, 4.64) takes the hill.
  • Pensacola played a game and a half, finishing up their suspended match from last night, which they ended up losing, 4-2. Billy Hamilton got back to his thieving ways, stealing his 13th AA base as part of a 1-4 night. The Hellflower and the Ryan LaMarre Flower each had 2 hits, and David "RIP Gore" Vidal had a double to account for all of the the Game 1 Wahoo hits. Kyle Lotzkar's outing was cut short after giving up 2 runs in just under 4 innings. Game 2 was just as much of an offensive explosion, as the 'Hoos were outhit four to two en route to a heartbreaking walk-off loss, 1-0. Daniel Corcino was stellar in his 5 innings, giving up 3 hits and no runs, walking one and striking out 4. Up next: Wirfin Obispo (2-0, 2.63) faces Tennessee at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield traded 4-spots in the early goings with San Jose, but Kyle McMyne was left on the hill a bit too long and blew the game, losing 7-6 on a walk-off single. Every starter but Stephen Hunt had a hit, and Steve Selsky chopped a mutton to left field, while Devin Lohman went 3-5 from the leadoff spot. Selskalicious' wanger was the only long-ball for the Blaze, but Niko Vasquez, Moose Mattair, and Kurtis Muller all had two hits as Bako outhit the Giants 14-8. Danny Renken gave up 5 in his 6 innings, and Justice "League" French hammered a hold. Up next: Tim Crabbe (2-0, 2.50) takes the hill at 10:05.
  • Dayton beat the Lugnuts 4-2 thanks in large part to Robert Stephenson's timber-shivering home debut. Walt Jocketty was on hand to watch Long Rob Silver go 5 innings, giving up his only run on a solo crow's nest, striking out 5 and walking nobody. He was living 95-96, and touched 98, so apparently he was holding back a bit. Booyakashah. The Dragon offense was firing on all cylinders, as no one had more than one hit, and Sean Buckley had the only extra-bagger. Boy oh boy. Up next: Nick Masset will get the start (rehab...don't worry) against Lansing, to be followed by regularly scheduled starter Wes Mugarian.
  • Billings was up 6-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth against Helena, but Alejandro Chacin was pitching to contact, and Brandon Dailey was throwing to god-knows-where, as his error led to 4 unearned runs and a Mustang loss, 7-6. The Dailey Show negated a good performance at the plate with his error, having gone 3-5 with a moment of zen, and Beau Amaral scored all 3 times he got on base. Jesse Winker and Daniel Pigott both reached base twice, and Ismael Guillon struck out 6 (and walked 4) in his 5 innings of one-run ball, and for all intents and purposes, the 'Stangs outplayed Helena and should've won. Good thing these games don't really mean anything. Up next: Sal Romano (2-4, 5.63) makes a hoagie against Helena at 9:05.
  • The AZL Reds cruised to an easy win over the AZL Angels, 9-2, as Amir Garrett actually threw strikes this time (3 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K). I'd love to see more consistency from the two-sport athlete, so hopefully this is the start of something good. Brent Peterson had another big game, going 3-5 with a double and 2 RBI from the top of the order, and Wilfrel "Typo" Estevez knocked in 2 from the 9-hole as part of a 2-4 evening. Up next: Go have Mexican food, the kids are off.
