Farmers Only: Two Out of Four Is Okay

-MBP

There ain't no Coupe DeVille hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box.

Louisville scratched out a win against the Scrabblesville Clippers, winning 5-2. Cool Papa Bill drove in a run on a 1-3 night and stole his 27th base, momentarily tying Junior Arias for the organizational lead. Mike Hessman did what Mike Hessman is often wont to do, ripping a a 2-run dinger on a 2-4 night. Tony Cingrani was effective, surrendering only his first run of the season, but he was not very efficient, throwing 111 pitches in 5 innings. Signor Spaghetti struck out 9, but walked 5 and gave up 3 hits. Hopefully his wildness is a result of working on his secondary offerings. Up Next: Armando Gallaraga (2-3, 2.66 ERA) faces Trevor 'Not the Next Jeter" Bauer and the Clippers at 11:05 AM ET.

Pensacola made like Monty Burns, and shut out the Suns 2-0. Chad Rogers had yet another solid start, throwing 6 scoreless innings with 2 hits, 3 Ks, and 3 BBs, bringing his ERA down to 1.73 on the year. His peripherals aren't terribly impressive, and his .239 BABIP may lead you to believe a regression is coming, but he's been very impressive so far this season. Mr. Rogers also hit a double, which was the only XBH the Wahoos managed, and scored a run to help out his own cause. Bryson Smith went 2-4 with 2 singles. Up Next: Ryan Dennick (2-4, 2.82 ERA) takes on the Jacksonville Suns for the first game of a double header tonight at 6:30 PM ET.

Bakersfield outhit San Jose 8-5, but ended up losing 2-1. Ryan Wright brought the lumber, knocking 2 doubles on a 3-4 night, but aside from a 3 single effort from Juan Silviero, the Blaze bats were rather quiet. Jon Moscot kept his team in the game, giving up only 2 runs on 4 hits with 3 Ks and 2 walks, but the lack of offense deprived him of a win. James Allen (2-5, 4.70 ERA) takes the hill against the Giants at 2:35 PM ET.

Dayton managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, losing 9-8 to the South Bend Silver Hawks. The Dragons carried an 8-1 lead into the 7th inning before the bullpen imploded. Jesus "Doesn't Save" Adames spoiled a solid 6 K/1 BB start from Drew Cisco, giving up 5 runs before he could get out of the inning. Andrew Salter couldn't stop the bleeding, giving up 3 runs in 0.2 innings. Jeff "Enjoy Every" Gelalich led the offense, going 3-5 with a double, and Tanner Rahier honked a 3-run wanger. Up Next: Sal's Hot Car Lot (4-4, 3.70 ERA) squares off against the Silver Hawks at 7 PM ET.
