Whole lotta losing goin on


The Bats fell victim to the Baby Barves and the Turd Slave on Friday as Joey Terdoslavich hit a walk-off single to beat 'em, 1-0. Brett Marshall tossed 5 3-hit innings, and the bullpen gave up just one hit until Tim Crabbe came on for the ninth and lost it. The offense had just 5 hits, none for extra bases.
Tucker Barnhart was a Barv-killer on Saturday, however, as his ninth-inning, bases-clearing double proved decisive in a 5-4 Bats win. He was 1-3, but he made it count. Only 6 hits from Louisville in this one, but they drew 5 free passes, so there were baserunners. Chien-Ming Wang was putting dudes on the bases all day long, lasting just 5 innings and giving up 8 hits, 4 walks, and all 4 runs with just 2 strikeouts.
An extra inning stunner went the Bats' way on Sunday, as 5 combined runs were scored in the 12th inning for a 6-5 Louisville victory. Ruben Gotay "it on the Mountain" was 2-5 with a solo hymnal, and a Tim Crabbe double, of all things, started the late rally for the Bats. Granted, he gave up a double (among other things) in the 12th to make it interesting, but Pedro "True House" Villarreal came on to get the save. David Holmberg started and gave up just 4 hits, but Gwinnett made him pay for them, as he allowed 3 runs in 6 innings. Two solid starts in a row for Mongo, so that's good. Up next: Josh Smith (8-1, 3.83) is probably pitching right now against the G-Barves, with first pitch coming at 12:05 today.


The Blue Wahoos got whooped on Friday, losing 11-1 to Huntsville. Yorman Rodriguez, surprisingly, was the lone bright spot, going 2-4 with his 3rd long ball of the year from the leadoff spot. Jon Moscot was hittable for the second start in a row, giving up 9 hits in 5 innings, good for 5 runs (4 earned).
On Saturday, Michael Lorenzen was pedestrian, surrendering 3 earned runs in 5 innings of work. He did strike out 7 guys, but gave up 4 free passes and 5 hits. Oh, the Wahoos lost, 5-4. Yorman Rodriguez was 2-4 again, with the only XBH of the night, and Brodie Greene was 2-3 with a walk.
Sunday was an extra inning win for the wahoos in blue to avoid a weekend sweep, 4-3. Moose Mattair yellowstoned a double to drive in Jesse Winker in the 11th to walk it off. Winker, for the record, has 5 walks in 4 AA contests. He was 1-3 with 2 walks and 3 runs in this one. Rossmel "Scratch-n-Sniff" Perez was 2-4 with a walk. Robert Stephenson struck out 7 in 7 innings, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits and a walk. Solid outing for the big guy. By the way, Huntsville has some names that make Jamodrick McGruder look like Josh Smith: Kentrail "Thanks, Obama" Davis, Hainley Statia, D'Vontrey Richardson, Tanner Poppe, and Tommy "Money Shot" Toledo. That, friends, is an embarrassment of riches.


Friday was strikeout city, population: Blaze, as they whiffed 15 times in a 9-5 loss to Stockton. Juans Perez and Silva had two hits, along with the David Vidal Experiment. Wandy Peralta was meh in 5 innings, and Timothy Adelman was atrocious in 2/3 of an inning.
Saturday was unkind to the desert boys as well in a 10-5 loss to Stockton. Bakersfield actually held a 5-3 lead in the fifth, but 7 unanswered against Mikey "Lunch Money" O'Brien, Mike Dennhardt, and Kyle McMyne doomed them. The Juans were at it again, each with 2 hits, and Sean Buckley added a pair as well.
Ismael Guillon got a rude welcome to the Cal League on Sunday, giving up 7 runs in 3.2 innings in his first start for the Blaze, a 9-6 defeat to the Ports. He walked 4 and gave up 3 homers, which will kill ya. On offense, it was the Juan show again, with Silva honking his fourth wanger and Perez donking 2 doubles. Up next: Daniel Wright (3-0, 3.81) does the damn thing.


Dayton lost to the Loons on Friday in extras, 5-4. Sal Romano was firing on all cylinders for 6 innings (2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 2 K) but the Rowdy Quesadilla allowed some runs, and so did Zach Weiss and Nolan Becker to lose it. Tanner Rahier, Jamodrick McGruder, and Danny Pigott all had 2 hits.
Saturday was a wangerfest for the Dragons, as wangdoodles from Phil Ervin (1-4) and Tanner Rahier (2-4) led Dayton to a...4-3 loss to Great Lakes. Jonathan Reynoso was 2-4, and Jackson "President of the Confederacy" Stephens was hittable.
Sunday wasn't much better, as the Dragons made it a losing weekend in a 3-1 loss to the Loons. Nick Travieso gave up 2 runs in 5 innings, but he struck out 4 and walked nobody, so that's neat. Not much offense, unfortunately.



The Mustangs got rained out on Friday, and forgot to show up on Saturday, losing 2-0 to Great Falls. New Reds draftee Wyatt Strahan made his debut, giving up an unearned run on one hit in 2 innings, striking out 3 and walking 2. Batavia's own Seth Varner made his debut as well, tossing 3 scoreless innings. He looks like he's from Batavia. A double from Jimmy "Slim" Pickens was, sadly, the offensive highlight.
Luckily, they brought the lumber on Sunday, beating the Voyagers 7-1. Tyler Mahle struck out 8 in 5 innings, allowing a run on 4 hits and no walks. Garrett Boulware was 2-4 with 4 RBI, and Alex Greer was 3-5.
Up next: Jeremy Kivel (0-0, 2.08) squares off against Great Falls at 9.
