Farmers only stare into your soul

I'd like to say something pithy, but I'm sure this thread will only succeed in getting people to make fun of Ben Jukich's mug, so go ahead. Give it your best shot.

Matt Belisle

Triple-A: Matt Belisle did all he could to throw the game away in his relief debut, but he was saved by Gary Majewski and the Bats won 5-3. Belisle got only 1 of his 5 batters out, but Majewski struck out 2 IronPigs to save it for Adam Pettyjohn (6-1), who gave his first shutout performance of the season. UP NEXT: Lehigh Valley at Louisville, 6:15 tonight.

Ben Jukich

Double-A: Ben Jukich took a no-hitter into the six and went 7.2 shutout innings in Chattanooga's 4-0 win. Jukich struck out 6 and allowed just 3 hits and 1 walk. Chris Valaika was 2 for 4, and Carlos Fisher struck out 2 for the save. UP NEXT: Game 1 vs. Huntsville, 7:15 tonight.

High A: Dan Perales was 3 for 4 with a homer in Sarasota's 5-3 win. Juan Francisco tripled and walked twice, and Philippe-Alexandre Valiquette had a coupla strikeouts. UP NEXT: Game 2 vs. Clearwater, 6 tonight.

Low A: Logan Parker launched his 4th homer of the year before Dayton's game was postponed by lightning. Creepy. That game resumes at 5 -- the Wizards lead 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning -- with a 7-inning game to follow.
