Farmers Only: [Kevin] Franklin Comes Alive

It ain't easy being in the AZL - Arrested Development

And Dayton throwing their playoff chances in the garbage

  • Louisville reached base 6 more times than Columbus, but still lost 7-4. Daniel Corcino's second relief outing was not like the first, as he failed to record an out, and gave up 2 hits, 2 walks, and 2 wangers to take the loss. Two hits apiece for Billy Hamilton, Neftali Soto, Derrick Robinson, and Henry Rodriguez, the latter two of whom also drew walks. Up next: Chad Rogers (4-5, 4.55) takes on Columbus at 7:05.

  • Pensacola had the day off. Carlos Contreras (3-2, 2.92) will face Mobile at 8:05.

  • Bakersfield saw their rally fall short, losing to Stockton 4-3. Solo butterbeers from Danny "Sid" Vicioso and Juan Perez cut the Ports' 4-run lead in half, and the Blaze pushed one more run across before the rally slid to a halt. Fabian Williamson was hittable, and that seemed to doom the Blaze from the get-go, unfortunately. Up next: James "Get a Last Name, Moran" Allen (8-11, 5.01) will oppose the Ports at 10:15.

  • Dayton's playoff chances were dealt a major blow with a 4-1 loss to the team they're chasing, Great Lakes. The Dragons managed just one extra-base hit all night–a double from Joe "Hawk" Hudson–and Beau "I Wanna F*** You Like an" Amaral was the only player to reach more than once. Jackson "Get a First Name, Moran" Stephens gave up all 4 runs before the fifth inning was over, digging the Dragons in a hole they couldn't escape. They now have to win their last 5 games, and hope the Loons don't win more than 1. It's possible, but not a good start. Up next: Must-win against the Loons, and Sal Romano (7-10, 4.84) better be firing on all cylinders, kicking it into overdrive, putting the pedal to the metal, and other figurative automobile idioms.

  • Billings was also off. They'll face Great Falls at 9, with Junior "Bartolomé Esteban" Morillo (2-1, 3.52) taking the hill.

  • The AZL Reds, yet again, were barely outgunned, falling to the lil Dodgers 10-9. It's getting kind of weird, and at some point you have to wonder if their luck will turn. Kevin Franklin had another monster game, going 3-4 with a double, a walk, and 2 RBI. Big ol' Logan Uxa knocked in 3 with a double and a triple in 4 times up, and Cory Thompson reached base 3 times and added a steal. Unfortunately, very obviously, the pitching and, to a lesser extent, the defense (3 errors). Up next: Off day.
