Farmers only await the new help

Draft time couldn't have come soon enough, because these guys by and large are dragging. It's definitely time for an infusion of new talent. Also, our farm teams gave up a total of 37 runs in 4 losses.

Alvin Colina

Triple-A: Alvin Colina had two home runs, but the Bats blew a 10-8 lead in the ninth and lost 13-12 in the 11th. Colina had 5 RBIs, and the Bats rolled out a ton of pitchers with mixed results. Ramon Ramirez was terrible, giving up 6 runs in the fifth, and Matt Belisle set down 5 of his 6 batters. Marcus McBeth made his first appearance since he was placed on the DL in the middle of April. UP NEXT: Toledo at Louisville, 7 tonight.

Double-A: Sean Henry homered but Pedro Viola gave up a bunch of hits and walks in the 11th as the Lookouts lost 9-8. Chris Valaika was 0 for 3 and is down to .257. Jordan Smith was not very good. and Sean Watson, in true Sean Watson fashion, had two strikeouts and a walk against his four batters. 30 strikeouts in 20 innings is great. 14 walks in 20 innings is terrible. UP NEXT: Chattanooga at Tennessee, 7:15 tonight.

High A: The S-Reds had 2 hits in a 5-1 loss. Todd Frazier, Juan Francisco and Drew Stubbs were a combined 0 for 10, and their batting averages are not nice (.259, .282, .261, respectively). Stubbs is sporting a nice little .377 OBP, though. UP NEXT: At Vero Beach, 6:30 tonight.

Low A: Dayton lost 10-3. Brandon Waring was 1 for 4 and is down to a .257 BA. Devin Mesoraco (1 for 4) has crept up to a .286 BA. Let's see if he can keep improving. UP NEXT: South Bend at Dayton, 7 tonight.
