Pre-All-Star break action

LOUISVILLE

Friday was good to the Bats, as they picked up a 7-3 win over the Iron Pigs. Neftali Soto just keeps hitting in AAA, going 2-5 with 2 doubles in this one. Rey Navarro, Bryan Anderson, and Steve Selsky all had 2 hits as well. It was a bullpen game, with no one pitching more than 3 innings.
The Bats rode two big innings to a 7-4 win on Saturday, Felix Perez (2-4) knocked in 2, and Thomas Neal and the Selsquatch each added two hits of their own. In what proved to be his final start with the Reds, Chien-Ming Wang showed why he wasn't ever called up, allowing 4 runs in 6 innings with 1 strikeout. Depth is nice, but I'm not hurt by the loss of a Wang, unlike John Bobbitt or that crazy cracked-out rapper who tried to jump off a building.
Louisville had to settle for a 4-game split, losing on Sunday to LeHigh Valley, 5-2. David Holmberg was decent in 5 innings, allowing just 1 run on 5 hits, with 3 walks and 2 K. Shit proceeded to get Villarreal, though, to the tune of 3 runs in a little over an inning. Bryan Anderson (2-3) and "Sports" Hernan Irribarren (2-4) accounted for most of the offense. Funnily enough, Jeremy Horst got the start for the Iron Pigs, giving up 2 runs in 3 innings. Wilson Valdez did that, right? Up next: All-Star Break

PENSACOLA

The Wahoos devoured the Biscuits on Friday, winning 3-1. Jon Moscot struck out 6 in 6 innings, giving up a run on 5 hits and 4 walks. The bullpen toyed with Montgomery hitters in the final 3 frames, but inning-ending double plays got them out of trouble in the seventh, eighth, AND ninth innings. Crazy, huh? Moose Mattair was 2-3 with a honk job, and Ross "Perot" Perez was 2-4.
Homers doomed the Wahoos on Saturday in an 8-5 loss to Montgomery. They got 2 hits apiece from Josh "Hades Blossom" Fellhauer, Ryan Wright, Seth Mejias-Brean (2 2B, 2 BB), and Juan Duran, as well as a solo shot from Devin "Willy" Lohman, but Timothy Adelman & co. couldn't hold the lead.
Sunday was not a fun day in Pensacola. The Biscuits slaughtered the Wahoos 12-2 as Sweaty Walczak, Cargo, and Scott Maine all got shellacked in relief. Ben Lively struck out 9 in 5 innings, but walked 4 and half of the 4 hits he allowed were home runs, so he gave up 3 earned on the night. The offense managed just 3 hits, two from Juan Duran and one from Yorman Rodriguez, so that was that. Up next: Mikey O'Brien is facing Jeremy Hellickson right now.

BAKERSFIELD

The Blaze lost a rare pitcher's duel on Friday, falling 2-1 to Modesto. It must've been frustrating, because the team was 0-12 with runners on base. Yikes. Wandy Peralta struck out 5 over 6 innings, giving up both runs on 3 hits and 3 walks. Sebastian Elizalde and David Vidal were both 2-4, but not when it counted.
Saturday looked to be every bit as tense as Friday, until the top of the tenth inning when Bakersfield broke a 3-3 tie with an 8-run frame to win 11-5. Marquez Smith was 3-6 with 4 RsBI, Zach Vincej was 2-5 with a walk, and Nick Benedetto's 2 hits were both doubles, and he started a triple play with a great throw from center field.
Sunday saw the Blaze fall 9-6 to the Nuts. Dan Besbris, the twelve-year-old writing the recaps for milb.com, was having a great time writing about the series with the Nuts, managing to work the words "load" and "spunk" into his article. Anyway, Jeff Gelalich hit a 2-run sammich, and Zach Vincej singled and walked twice to lead the offense, but defensive miscues led to 5 unearned runs that Daniel Wright had to live with. Up next: Ismael Guillon (0-2, 9.50) at 10:05.

DAYTON

The bullpen let down Sloppy Sal Romano and the Dragons on Friday in a 7-4 loss to West Michigan. The Jalopy gave up 2 runs (1 earned) in his 6 innings, but Joel Bender and Pedro Diaz combined to give up 5 more. Phil Ervin and Jon Matthews were both 2-4.
The Dragons came out on the wrong end of a pitcher's duel on Saturday, falling 2-0 to the Whitecaps. "Rodney" Dan Langfield struck out 7 over 5 innings, allowing just 2 hits and 3 walks. Both W. Michigan runs were unearned, too. Ronald "Here is" Bueno was 2-3 to account for half of Dayton's hits.
Nick Travieso didn't have his best stuff on Sunday, allowing 6 runs on 9 hits over 6.1 innings with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Gabriel Rosa was 2-4 with a gigantic bone machine, his second of the year, and JimJam Jamodrick McGruder was 1-3 with a homer of his own. Up next: Jackson Stephens (2-0, 2.79) is currently getting hit around by West Michigan.

BILLINGS

The Mustangs fell to Idaho Falls on Friday, 6-4. Taylor "Ima Let You Finish" Sparks continues to tear up the northwest, going 4-4 with a triple. Aristides Aquino was 2-4, and Brian O'Grady hit a beefy pinch-hit bomb. Tejay Antone gave up 2 runs in 2.2 innings, and a bunch of dudes pitched a bunch of innings with mixed success.
They fell to Ogden on Saturday, 11-6, despite a home run from "Fornicating" Aquino "Excrement." Taylor Sparks had a double, a triple, and a walk, and Argenis "The Mask of" Aldazoro was 2-4 with a double. Wyatt "Earp" Strahan was wild and got knocked around in his only inning, giving up 5 runs/2 earned on 3 hits and 4 walks.
The Montanans exacted their revenge on Sunday, blowing out the Raptors 12-0. Tyler Mahle pitched a 3-hit shutout, striking out 6 in the process. Big days all around for the lineup, as Alex Blandino (2-4, BB), Taylor Sparks (1-4, BB), and Kevin Franklin (2-5) all went deep. Jimmy "Chicken" Pickens was 4-5 with 4 RsBI and Ty Washington was 3-5. Truly a dominating effort from all Mustangs involved. Even the guys who went 0-5 (Aquino, Shedric Long) contributed, with a run scored and a run batted in. Up next: Jeremy Kivel (0-2, 5.40) faces Ogden at 9:05.

AZL REDS

The AZL Reds beat the Little A's on Friday, 3-2. Narciso "Richard Nixon" Crook hit a walk-off solo shot to win it.
They stomped the AZL Giants on Saturday, winning 11-2 this time. Gavin LaValley was 2-4 with 3 runs scored, and Dalton "Boarding School" Carter and Oviel "Eggs" Florentino combined to knock in 5. Ty Boyles struck out 5 over 3.1 innings of work.
The Giants got their revenge quickly, stomping the Reds 11-3 on Sunday. Jacob Constante was uncharacteristically hittable, getting knocked around for 5R/4ER in 2 innings. He struck out 2 and walked 2. Morgan "You Want Some? I'd" Lofstrom was the only player with multiple hits. He was 2-4. Up next: Off day.
