Farmers Only: Some Guy Named Johnny Cueto is in Low-A

This is too good of a picture not to use... - NICK FALZERANO

I wouldn't get too excited, it's just one game.

  • Louisville beat Lehigh Valley, 4-2, to get back to .500 thanks to a totally rad start from Pedro Villarreal. Señor True House went 6 scoreless innings, giving up just 3 hits and 3 walks, with 3 strikeouts. Billy Hamilton was 2-5, but did get caught stealing. It was only the third time this year, though, which is pretty impressive if ya think about it. The Mighty Hessman was 3-4, and Neftali Soto launched a sputnik, his third of the year. Up next: Daniel Corcino (1-5, 7.56) looks to stay on the straight and narrow at 6:35 from Slugger Field.
  • Pensacola got burned up by the Suns, who rode a 5-run eighth inning to broil the Wahoos, 10-3. The pitching was terrible—Daniel Renken started, gave up 5 runs, Chris Manno "War" relieved, gave up 3 runs, and Kyle Lotzkar came on for 2 batters and also gave up 3 runs. A bunch of guys had singles, Moose Mattair and Tucker Barnhart each had 2, and Theo "Huxta" Bowe hit a triple for KMiB. Yuck. Up next: Josh Smith (3-3, 5.20) looks for revenge in Jacksonville at 7:05.
  • Bakersfield didn't put up much of a fight either, as a 6-2 loss suffered to San Jose sealed the series sweep for the stupid Giants. Carlos Contreras was victimized by one mistake pitch in the sixth when he left a meatball that was launched for a 3-run homer. Juan Silverio had two doubles and Ryan Wright was 2-4 with a double of his own, but that was kind of it for the bats. Up next: The Nuts come to town for Fireworks Friday, starting at 7:30 my time. No starters announced yet, but they might want to get on that soon.
  • Dayton jumped out to an 8-1 lead against Lansing, and held on to win, 9-6. Some schlub named Johnny Cueto, who is WAY too old for low-A, pitched pretty well. He gave a run in 3 innings on 4 hits and no walks, striking out 4 in the process. After a clean inning from Joey Housey (who?), Ismael Guillon relieved for 4 innings, striking out 9. Oh, he also gave up 4 runs on 5 hits, but he only walked 2, so there's that. Tanner Rahier lumberjacked his third bomb of the year as part of a 2-4, 4 RBI day, and Jeff "The Seven Year" Gelalich had two hits as well to help the Dragons to their first three-game win streak of the year. Up next: Pedro Diaz (0-2, 4.61) takes the Fifth Third Field mound against the Lugnuts at 7:05.
