Louisville had a poopy game, Matt Maloney had a poopy start, and the Bats lost 15-8 to the Scranton Stranglers. Maloney started the game going 2.2 IP, giving up 10 hits, 6 runs, 2 earned, with 0 walks, and 0 strikeouts. The bullpen was also awful. Wooooooof. I hope Yossi is happy. The offense was pretty good, and was able to put up a 5 spot in the first. Rueben Gotay hit a Star Spangled Banner, and there were several multi-hit games. Jason Bourgeois, Neftali Soto, Felix Perez (double and a triple), Chris Nelson, Bryan Anderson (double), and Thomas Neal (double) all had more than one hit. Josh Smith will take the mound tonight against Scranton.
Pensacola lost to Mississippi 6-3. Lil Cueto was good (6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K). The bullpen was a let down. Drew Hayes, Fabian Williamson, Justin Freeman all entered the game and gave up at least 1 earned run. Travis "Moose" Mattair hit a two run Johnson in the 3rd. Josh Fellhauer was 2 for 4 with a run scored. The rest of the offense was offensive. Bob Steve pitches tomorrow night at 7:00 pm CST
Bakersfield defeated the High Desert Mavericks by a score of 5-4. Drew Cisco delivered what may have been his best start of the season. The young right-hander went 5 innings, giving up 7 hits, 2 earned runs, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. He still allowed a few too many base runners and a homerun, but it is a step in the right direction. Carlos Gonzalez picked up his 10th save with a scoreless 9th. Juan Silva continues to be awesome. He went 3 for 4 with a solo wanger. Ryan Wright also had a solid day with 2 hits, a double, and a RBI in 4 at bats. Mike Dennhardt will start tonight against Visalia at 6:00 pm PST.
Dayton found themselves in a Memorial Day barnburner against the Ft. Wayne TinCaps, but ended up on the frowny side of the scoreboard 14-9. The offense was really good and was headlined by Jamodrick McGruder, again. Jamodrick took 3 walks on the day, and also hit a RBI single. He also stole a base, one of the 5 the Dragons had on the day. Sebastian Elizalde had a RBI double, as did Sean Buckley. Sammy Diaz, Joe Hudson, and Carlton Daal all had multi hit games. Nick Travieso had one of his worst starts as a professional. He pitched 2.2 innings, giving up 8 earned runs, and 3 walks with no strikeouts. Wah! Joel Bender gave up 5 earned runs in 2.1 innings. Wah! Wah! Daniel Wright takes the ball for an 11:05 am game in Ft. Wayne.
