Farmers Only: Mighty Mike Hessman Strikes Again

-MBP

Closing in on 400 MiLB wangers.

Louisville came out on top in a 10-7 slug fest against the Columbus Clippers. Mike "King of the AAAA Hitters" Hessman had a 3-3 night with a walk and his 13th wanger of the season. He's currently sporting a rather robust .974 OPS on the year. Cool Papa Bill is starting to get back on track after a rough start to the season, slashing .325/.429/.350 in his last 10 games. He went 1-4 with a walk and stole 2 bases in 3 tries yesterday. Josh Fellhauer got on base 4 times in 5 PAs, going 2-3 with a mashed tater. Armando Galarraga had a rare rough outing, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) over 5 innings, walking 4 and striking out 3. Up Next: Greg Reynolds (4-0, 3.16 ERA) and the Bats continue their series against the Clippers at 6:35 PM ET.

Pensacola split a double header against the Jacksonville Suns, trading off 1-0 games. Honestly, both of these games were super boring, and nothing of note really happened. You can find the box scores here if you are so inclined. But seriously, David Vidal hitting a double might have been the most exciting play of the night. Up Next: Danny Renken (1-3, 4.03) faces the Suns at 8 PM ET.

Bakersfield held off a late inning rally from the Giants to secure a 6-4 victory. Yorman Rodriguez had a nice night at the dish, breaking out of a bad slump, going 2-4 with a double and a walk. Starter James Allen struck out 5 in 6.1 innings, giving up 2 hits, 2 BB and 2 runs. Carlos Gonzalez was tasked with closing out a 4 run 9th inning lead, but he struggled mightily, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits and 3 walks before Kyle McMyne vultured a 1-out save. No word on the lack of Hajjy, but hopefully he's okay. Up Next: The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes head to Bakersfield for a 10:30 PM ET tilt. Mike Dennhardt (2-3, 2.81 ERA) will get the start.

Dayton got thumped by the South Bend Silver Hawks 11-1. Sal Romano's struggles continued last night, giving up 6 earned runs on 10 hits, with 2 walks and 4 Ks. After a great start to the season, old Sal has now allowed 21 runs in his last 5 starts. Uh-oh, Spaghettios. Tanner Rahier, owner of a 1.007 OPS in his last 10 games, went 3-4 with a double. Up Next: Bob Steves (4-3, 3.74 ERA) takes on the Silver Hawks at 7 PM ET.
