Farmers Only: Clap Your Hands Say Yorman!

Also, holy crap Kanekoa Texeira

  • Louisville rode the wanger train to winsville, beating Columbus 2-1. I bet you can't guess how they scored their runs... give up? HOMERS! Neftali Soto and Felix Perez launched back-to-back dunkaroos, and a solid team pitching effort sealed the win. Kanekoa Texeira started his first game of the year, and–wait a second, is that Corky Miller with a tan?!? Jesus, Kanekoa. Lay off the cream cheese and guava yum-yums. Anyway, Texeira, or "Texas K" as he apparently now likes to be called, allowed just 1 run on 3 hits in 5 innings, striking out 5 with no walks. In what could very well be a preview of September, Daniel Corcino made his first relief appearance of the year, striking out 1 in a perfect inning. Veeeery interesting. Up next: Pedro Villarreal (3-8, 4.79) against Columbus at 7:05.

  • Pensacola was on the smiling side of a 6-2 win over Birmingham. Mike "Holy Mary Mother of" Costanzo was 2-4 with a 2-run whizzbang, and freshly minted cleanup hitter Yorman Rodriguez was 3-4 with a double and 2 RBI. Josh Smith didn't have pinpoint control, walking 5, but he was effectively wild, allowing just 3 hits and 1 run in 7 innings with 5 K. Michael Lorenzen had a night to forget, allowing a solo homer and two walks without recording an out. Up next: Robert Stephenson (0-1, 1.64) starts the final home game of the year at 6.

  • Bakersfield lost their fourth in a row to San Jose, 5-2. Juan Silverio was 3-4 with a steal and his 17th homer, and David Vidal smacked a double as part of a 2-4 evening. Not a lot else, though, as Shaun Ellis gave up 3 runs before recording an out, two of which were earned, and that proved to be enough for San Jose. After the first inning, Ellis settled down and cruised through 5 more scoreless frames, but Carlos Gonzalez allowed 6 hits in just 1.1 innings, and the Giants tacked on 2 more runs. Pretty unpleasant. Up next: Somebody will pitch against Stockton at 10:15.

  • Dayton was obliterated by Lansing, getting tripled up 18-6. Amir Garrett was absolutely shelled, hemorrhaging 8 runs in 3.1 innings. He gave up 10 hits, walked 3, and struck out 3. Ouch. The relievers weren't much better, but the defense didn't do them any favors as 3 errors led to 7 unearned runs. Seth Mejias-Brean did his part, going 2-2 with a double and his 10th Slam Casserole of the year, but it wasn't near enough. Up next: Off day, before a huge series against Great Lakes, who are 1 1/2 games ahead of Dayton in the wildcard standings. Jackson Stephens (3-5, 3.88) will get the start.

  • Billings beat the Raptors, 4-2. Robert "Team RamRob" Ramirez was 2-3 with a triple, and Ty "Camp" Washington was 1-2 with a double and a walk. Lucas "Film" Moran had perhaps his best start of the year, striking out 7 in six scoreless innings, allowing just four baserunners (2 hits, 2 walks). Up next: Zach Weiss (1-4, 5.03) faces Ogden at 9:05.

  • The AZL Reds were rained out. The MiLB schedule is acting all funky, so I can't tell when they'll make it up, nor who they play tomorrow. Sorry kids.
