Farmers Only: Corky's Back in the Saddle

USA TODAY Sports

dat stache

Louisville bested Trevor Bauer and the Columbus Clippers, winning 2-1.  Corky Miller made his triumphant return to the Bats lineup, going 1-2 with a walk.  Billy Billy Billy went 1-5 with a bunt single in the first inning, but turned it into a triple by stealing second and third base.  Hank Rod went 1-4 with a walk and a pair of steals as well.  Chad Rogers went 7 strong, allowing just one run on 3 hits with 4 K and 2 BB.  Up Next:  Tim "Dungeness" Crabbe (0-1, 1.23 ERA) makes his second start for the Bats at 7:15.

Pensacola struggled offensively, as they so often do, and lost 2-1 to the Mobile BayBears.  Carlos Contreras had some trouble with his command, walking 4 batters in 5.1 innings, giving up a run on 3 hits, with a pair of strikeouts.  Herr Lutz farfegnugen'd a pair of doubles on a 2-4 night, and that was about it for the offense.  Up Next: The battle of the Bay continues, as Danny Renken (6-8, 3.66 ERA) takes the hill for the Wahoos at 8:05.

Bakersfield beat up on the Stockton Ports, holding them to just one hit, and won 4-1.  James Allen tossed 6 innings, allowing a solo wanger and 3 walks, while striking out 5.  The Blaze were burning up the basepaths, swiping 7 total bags with Juan Perez finishing the day with 4 steals, and Juans Silverio and Duran each honked a rally killer.  Up Next: The Blaze head to Visalia tonight at 10.  No starter announced yet.

Dayton got blanked by Great Lakes in an important game, falling 3-0.  Sal Romano was cruising for the first 5 innings, before running off the road in the 6th, giving up a pair of runs without recording an out.  Daniel Pigott had the only multi-hit game, going 2-3 with a walk.  Up Next:  Ben Lively makes his first start for Dayton tonight at 7.

Billings lost 7-5 to Great Falls.  Junior Morillo got roughed up, allowing 5 runs in 4 innings, striking out 2 and walking none.  Aristides Aquino's 3-run dinger was the only notable offensive performance of the night.  Honestly, if Jose Ortiz isn't playing, this team bores the heck out of me.  Up Next:  Daniel Wright (3-2, 5.06 ERA) toes the rubber for the Stangs at 9.
