Farmers Only: MiLB Opening Day

Rehab buddies! - Jamie Sabau

Here's hoping this is the only time Farmers Only covers a Mat Latos start.

Louisville kicks off their season this afternoon at 4 PM ET, with Jeff Francis getting the start in Toledo against the Mudhens.

Pensacola edged out the Tennesee Smokies, winning by a 6-5 margin. Mat Latos made his first and hopefully only rehab start last night in Pensacola, tossing 79 pitches in 4 innings. Latos fanned 3, walked 2, and gave up 5 runs, 3 earned. Carlos Contreras pitched 3 scoreless innings of relief, fanning 6 of the 9 hitters he faced while allowing only 2 hits and no walks. Devin Mesoraco walked in both of his at bats, one with the bases loaded. Juan "High Ho" Silverio looked solid in his first AA game, going 2-2 with 2 doubles and a walk, with 3 runs scored. Up Next: Daniel Corcino looks to get back on track against the Smokies at 7:30 PM ET.

Bakersfield out-slugged the Modesto Nuts, winning 9-5. James Allen picked up the win, hurling 5 innings of 2-run ball (1 earned), with 4 strikeouts and a walk. Kyle McMyne made it interesting in the 9th, allowing 3 runs, to cut the lead to 4, but he was able to secure the victory. KMiB's favorite, Ryan Wright, went 3-5 with a double and a run scored, and "Gabriel García" Marquez Smith had a mashed tater and 3 ribeyes on a 2-4 night. Up Next: Blaze v. Nuts at 10:15 ET, starter TBD.

Dayton lost a late lead to West Michigan, falling 5-4. Nick Travieso gave up 2 runs on 7 hits in 6 innings, striking out 3 and walking none. Newly acquired Mexican League outfielder Sebastian Elizalde honked a 2-run wanger in his Dayton debut, and "Uncle" Phil Ervin went 1-3 and drove in one on a sac fly. Sal Romano fires up the jalopy tonight at 7 PM ET.
