bluewahoosblog.mlblogs.com

A 9-3 weekend for the Reds' affiliates.

Louisville split their two games in a rain shortened weekend. The Bats lost 4-2 on Friday, wrapping up their series against the Charlotte Knights. Armando Gallaraga threw 6 innings, giving up 4 runs on 7 hits, walking 2 and striking out 6. Corky Miller drove in the only 2 Lull-vuhl runs, going 2-4 with a double, then washed it down with a 16 oz. Ribeye from Texas Roadhouse. Cool Papa Billy went 0-3 with a walk. The Bats headed down south on Saturday, defeating the Fighting Janishes of Gwinnett County, Georgia 6-5. Billy Snax had a much better game, going 2-4 with a double, a walk and a stolen base. Hank Rod's hot streak continued, as he went 2-5 with a hanked wonger. Over the last 10 games, he's sporting a robust .372/.400/.535 line. Greg Reynolds keeps on plugging along, and he picked up his 4th win of the season, throwing 7 innings of 2-run ball. Sunday's game got banged due to rain - THANKS OBAMA. Up Next: Pedro Villarreal (1-2, 4.53 ERA) faces the Braves at 5:05 PM ET.

Pensacola dropped two of three to the Mobile Bay Bears. The Wahoos barely beat the Bay Bears on Friday, winning 4-2. Bryson Smith is one of the only Wahoos that seems interested in hitting the ball with any authority. He went 2-4 with the only Pensacola extra base hit, a double, and drove in a run. Chad Rogers kept the Bay Bears off the board, but gave up 6 hits and only managed 4.2 innings pitched. Mobile won 4-1 on Saturday in a not so titanic struggle. Tucker Barnhart hit a double, and that was basically the extent of the excitement in that game. The Wahoos fell 6-3 in 11 innings on Sunday after Lee "Steven" Hyde and Josh "Not So" Ravin combined for a disastrous 4-run 11th inning. Manny Parra started the game, throwing a scoreless first two innings in his third rehab appearance. Bryson Smith went 1-5 with a solo Peabo, and Travis Mattair "Bear Bunch" hit a double and drew a walk on a 2-4 night. Up Next: Pensacola continues their series against the Bay Bears at 8 PM ET. Josh Smith is scheduled to start.

Bakersfield swept their weekend set, winning 1-0 against the Stockton Ports on Friday. Juan Perez led off the game with a single and a stolen base, then advanced to 3B on a throwing error. Yorman Rodriguez drove in Perez on a sacrifice, and that was that. Jon Moscot threw a good old good one, tossing 6 innings of 1 hit, shut out ball with 9 Ks and only one walk. Pat Doyle struck out 5 in 1.2 innings, before turning it over to Hajjy who got a 4 out save, lowering his ERA to 0.93 on the year. The Blaze beat the Ports 5-2 in 11 innings on Saturday. James Allen gave up a run on 3 hits in 6 innings, walking 3 and striking out 4. In the top of the 11th, Yorman Rodriguez and Steve Selsky honked a pair of wangers to put the Blaze ahead, and El'Hajj Muhammad closed it out in the bottom of the 11th. The Blaze capped off their winning weekend with a 10-1 drubbing of the High Desert Mavericks. Bakersfield tallied 15 hits in the game which was highlighted by a 7 run 4th inning. Our Man went 2-4 with a walk and Steve Selsky went 3-5 with 2 RBI. Up Next: The Blaze duel the Mavericks at 7:30 PM Weezt Coast time, no starters announced yet.

Dayton was undefeated over the weekend as well, winning all four of their games at South Bend. The Dragons beat the Silver Hawks 4-3 in 10 innings on Friday night. Drew Cisco struck out 7 (like what what), in 6 innings and gave up a run on 4 hits. It wouldn't be a Dragons recap without mentioning the exploits of Uncle Jesse, who went 2-5 with a triple and a dinger. Seth Mejias-Brean also went deep, and was a triple away from the cycle on a 3-5 night. Dayton played two on Saturday, winning 3-1 in the makeup game from April 10th. All 3 Dayton runs came courtesy of a Tanner Rahier wangerdoodle. In the night cap, the Dragons soared past the Silver Hawks by a score of 6-3. Sal Romano got the win, but wasn't especially sharp, giving up 3 runs in 5 innings, striking out 5 and walking 3. Josef Terry has been much better after being sent down from Bakersfield, and drove in 3 runs on a 4-5 night with two doubles. On Sunday, Young Robert Stephenson spun another gem, in a 6-3 Dragons victory, striking out 9 and walking one in 7 innings. He did get burnt by the gopher ball, giving up 2 honkers and 3 runs, but get this - in his last 3 starts, Bob Steve is sporting a 1.42 ERA and has struck out 25 batters with just 1 walk (h/t @DragonsBaseball). That's prettay, prettay, prettay good. Up Next: Ismael Guillon looks to stop his Eric Milton impression against the Silver Hawks at 10:35 AM ET.
