  • Louisville blew their last 4 games over the weekend to finish their season on a 7-game losing streak. They lost 13-2 on Friday as Tim Gustafson got knocked around. Mike Costanzo had 2 hits and 2 RBI. They lost 5-1on Saturday, as Travis Webb and Bill Bray gave up runs. Joey Votto hit a homer, only his first of the year in the minor leagues. So disappointing. They got killed 11-6 on Sunday, despite a 3-for-4 day by Felix Perez. Nati-bound Todd Redmond gave up 6 runs in 2 innings of work. Whoops. They ended the season with a whimper, losing 2-0. Joey was 0-for-3. The Bats finish their season 51-93, which is the worst record in franchise history. Better luck next year, Batlegs.
  • Pensacola lost 3 of their 4 games to finish their season. They lost 5-0 on Friday, despite a good start by Daniel Corcino, who pitched 5 innings of 1-run ball. The Wahoos only got 2 hits. Saturday's game was a 3-2 win, despite Tony Cingrani giving up 2 runs in his first relief appearance. He struck out 6 and walked 5 in 3 2/3 innings. Bryson Smith had 3 hits. They lost a heartbreaker on Sunday, a 7-3 loss in 15 innings. Smith had 3 more hits. They ended their season with a 8-1 loss. Brodie Greene had 3 hits. Billy Hamilton had 2 hits, but didn't steal any bases, leaving his season total at 155. The Blue Wahoos finish the season at 68-70 overall.
  • Bakersfield won 3 of their last 4 games. They lost a crazy one 8-7 on Friday as Andrew Brackman gave up 6 runs in the last two innings.

They won again on Monday 7-4, as Travis Mattair went 3-for-3 with a homer. The Blaze ended the season 72-68, but was the best team in the division in the first half of the year, earning them a playoff spot. They'll play starting Saturday night.
  • Dayton split their final games of the year. They won 7-6 on Friday, as Votto went 0-for-2 but Juan Silva went 2-for-4 with a homer. Joe Terry was 3-for-4 as the Dragons lost 7-1 on Saturday, mostly due to a rough outing by Radhames Quezada.

They won 7-3 on Monday, as Sean Buckley went 2-for-5 with a homer and Jefry Sierra had 3 hits. Ismael Guillon had a good pitching performance, going 7 innings of 3 run ball, with 9 strikeouts and 1 walk. Dayton ended their season at 60-78, dead freaking last in their division.

They won 12-5 on Saturday behind a 3-for-5 night by Beau Amaral. Carlos Sanchez hit his 8th homer of the year. Sunday was a 6-4 win, as Joel Bender was dominant. He went 6 shutout innings. They finished it off with a 5-2 win on Monday, as Dan Langfield and Jose Amezcua combined for 8 innings of 1-run ball with 11 strikeouts. Up next: Oddly enough, the Mustangs' season isn't over yet.
