  • Louisville snapped their 7-game losing streak on Saturday, winning 2 of their 3 weekend games. They got blanked by Charlotte 2-0 on Friday. Kanekoa Teixeira got the start, giving up only 1 hit in 5 shutout innings. On offense, the Bats were pretty much stymied by Charlie Leesman (ahem, former Xavier Musketeer Charlie Leesman), but Neftali Soto had 3 of the Bats' 7 hits. Saturday broke the losing streak, a 3-2 win in 10 innings. Soto and Denis Phipps had 3 hits each, with Phipps smacking his 11th homer of the year. Pedro Villarreal started and gave up 2 runs in 7 innings, with 8 strikeouts. They won 9-8 on Sunday, with Phipps blasting two more homers and driving in 6 runs. Sean Gallagher gave up 3 runs in 5, and Bill Bray almost gave up the lead in the 8th. J.J. Hoover threw up a zero in the 9th to close it out, his 13th save. Up next: Chad Reineke takes on Columbus at 7:05.
  • Pensacola split their 4 weekend games. They dropped the first game of Friday's doubleheader 4-1, ironically enough, losing to the recently released Brett Tomko. Kyle Lotzkar went for the good guys, giving up 3 runs in 4. They won 10-2 in Game 2 as David VIdal honked 2 wangers and drove in 4 runs. Mark Serrano got the start and gave up 1 run in 5 2/3 innings with 7 strikeouts and no walks. They lost 5-2 to Mobile on Saturday. Billy Hamilton was 3-for-4 with a stolen base to bring his season total to 143, 2 off of the record. Daniel Corcino started in this one, going 6 innings of 1-run ball. They won 9-2 on Sunday, as Beau Mills hit his 10th homer of the year, a nice tribute to his old man, who got shit-canned in Houston. Wirfin Obispo struck out 7 in 5 innings. Up next: Chad Rogers takes on Montgomery at 8.
  • Bakersfield lost 2 of their 3 games, but won on Sunday to cap off a day when every affiliate (and the big league club) all won. They lost to High Desert 11-10 on Friday, as Daniel Renken got lit up for 8 runs. Steve Selsky was 4-for-4 with a homer and 4 RBI, and Travis Mattair had 3 hits. They lost 10-2 on Saturday, as Stalin Gerson gave up 5 runs in his 4 innings of work. Danny Vicioso had 3 hits. They bounced back on Sunday to win 6-5 as Dominic D'Anna had 3 hits and Ryan Wright jacked his 3rd dinger of the year. Tim Crabbe started and gave up 3 runs (2 ER) in 7 innings, with 8 strikeouts. Up next: Inland Empire at 10:15, starter is TBA.
  • Dayton lost 5-3 on Friday night, despite a good outing by Robert Stephenson. Bob Steve gave up 1 run in 5 innings, with 5 strikeouts and 3 walks. They got blanked by Fort Wayne on Saturday 5-0, as they could only muster up 6 hits between the whole team. James Allen gave up 5 runs in 5 innings. They bounced back on Sunday with a 5-1 win, behind a great outing by Ismael Guillon, who pitched 6 shutout innings. Kyle Waldrop was 2-for-4 with his 8th homer. Up next: Jacob Johnson at 7:05.
  • Billings won 2 of their 3 games. They got slaughtered 11-3 on Friday, though, with the bullpen blowing up. Amir Garrett got the start, and only gave up 1 hit in 3 shutout innings. It looks like he's coming into his own a bit there. Carlos Sanchez was 3-for-5 and Zachary Vincej had 2 hits. They won 3-1 on Saturday, with the pitching staff having a good outing. Dan Langfield pitched 3 innings of no-hit ball with 7 strikeouts, only allowing one baserunner via a walk. Sunday was even better, as they shut out Ogden 5-0. Andrew Cisco gave up 1 hit in 5 shutout innings, and Jesus Adames and Alejandro Chacin closed out the shutout effort. Robert Maddox hit his 11th homer. Up next: Sal Romano takes on Idaho Falls at 9:15.
  • The AZL Reds split their two games. They beat the AZL D-backs 5-2 on Saturday, as Michael Salter pitched 4 innings, only giving up one unearned run. Brent Peterson and Adam Matthews had 3 hits each. Sunday was a 14-8 loss. Matthews had another 3 hits and a homer, and Jose Valdelamar hit one too. Up next: AZL Royals at 10.
