Louisville split a double header yesterday. The Bats beat up on the Jr. Braves in the first game, winning 8-5. Raven Riley would have appreciated the Bats performance, as Henry Rodriguez, Neftali Soto, and Denis Phipps all showed off their wangers. Billy Billy Billy knocked a double, drove in one, and scored a run on a 2-3 night. Pedro Villarreal wasn't spectacular, giving up 4 runs in 4.1 innings on 8 hits and 2 walks while striking out 3, but he kept the team in the game, and even helped his own cause with an RBI single. Poor, poor Pul Janish went 0-3. Louisville dropped the nightcap 5-2. Unfortunately, the Daniel Corcino. He walked 6 in 4.2 innings while allowing 6 hits and gave up 5 runs with only 2 strikeouts. Le sigh. The Bats managed 10 hits, but were decidedly unclutch. Billy Snax, Neftali Soto, and Hank Rod all went 2-4. Up Next: Chad Reineke (3-3, 4.10 ERA) faces the Barves at 6:05 PM ET.
Pensacola lost to the Bay Bears, falling 4-1. Remember yesterday when I said Bryson Smith was really the only one hitting for the Wahoos? That hasn't changed. The Splendid Ginger had the only multi-hit game for Pensacola, going 2-4. Josh Smith went 7 innings giving up 4 runs (2 earned) with 5 strikeouts and a walk. I don't know what else to say, this game was pretty stoopy domb. Up Next: Tim Crabbe (2-2, 2.24 ERA) tries to get the Wahoos a series win at 8 PM ET.
Bakersfield beat the High Desert Mavericks 5-3. Ryan Wright was totally jamtastic, knocking a dinger and 2 doubles in 4 plate appearances. Carlos Contreras gave up 2 runs in 5 innings on 5 hits, striking out 4 and walking 3. The bullpen was able to preserve the win, and although he gave up a run, El'Hajj got the save. Up Next: John Jacob Jingleheimer Johnson (3-2, 6.63 ERA) duels the Mavericks at 10:30 PM ET.
Dayton got spanked by South Bend, as the Siver Hawks exacted their revenge on the Dragons 9-1. Ismael Guillon and Daniel Corcino are battling for the title of most disappointing pitching prospect in the system. At this point it's a neck and neck race. Guillon gave up 6 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits in 4.2 innings, walking 5 and striking out 6. Yuck. Jeff "Fluffernutter" Gelalich went 2-4 with a double and scored the only Dragons run. Up Next: Off day.
