Farmers Only: The Sausage Cycle

  • Being a loyal farm team, Louisville also got walked-off on, by the Pirates AAA affiliate no less, losing 6-5 to Indy. Despite 4 hits from Kris Negron and wangdoodles from Chris Nelson and Mike Wilson, they couldn't get it done. Tim Crabbe was pinched for 3 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits in 5 1/3 innings with a walk and a pair of strikeouts, and despite 3 one-hit innings from Pedro Villarreal and an 8th inning rally to tie the game, it ultimately slipped away from Nick Schmidt, who retired just one batter before blowing it in 11 innings. Up next: Somebody will face Syracuse at 6:35.
  • Pensacola had a pretty great day, to wildly understate things. They blotted out the Suns in majestic fashion, scoring 4+ runs in 3 separate innings en route to a 17-1 win. Robert Stephenson went back to doin' the damn thang, striking out 7 in 5 innings, allowing just 1 run on 4 hits and 3 walks. Donald Lutz hit for the cycle, finishing the day 5-6. Yorman Rodriguez (2-6) and Rey Navarro (3-7) also honked wangers for the Wahoos, and even Bob Steve got in on the hit parade, going 2-4 with 3 RBI to help his cause. Every starter had a hit, and 7 of 9 had multiple hits. Just an awesome game. Up next: Jon "Jonny Muskrat" Moscot (0-1, 2.20) squares off against the Suns at 7:05.

  • Bakersfield fell victim to a six-run Modesto 6th inning, and lost 9-5. Starter Mike Dennhardt cruised through five innings allowing just two hits before giving up a single and a walk to start the sixth. Bad idea to give him the hook, though, as Ben "David" Klimesh came on and got lit up like the Branch-Davidians, and it didn't stop until Jimmy Moran got a brain and struck out the 11th Modesto batter of the inning. The Nuts went nuts, is what I'm trying to say. Ryan Wright went deep for the second time this season, adding a double to finish 2-4, and Kyle Waldrop was 2-5 with a double and two ribeyes to pace the offense. Up next: Badass Ben Lively (3-0, 0.53) tries to crush the Nuts at 10:05.

  • Dayton was rained out against South Bend. They'll knock out a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 6:05 with Sal Romano taking the hill in Game 1, and Ismael Guillon (1-0, 1.65) getting the start in Game 2.
