Ugh, the Reds affiliates once again went 0-4 on the evening. This is getting old.
- Louisville lost 4-2 to Indy. Ramon Ramirez started the game, giving up 4 runs in 6 1/3 innings. Josh Roenicke was awesome in relief, not allowing a hit and striking out 3 in his 1 2/3 innings. Adam Rosales continued his hot hitting (he's batting .375 on the season), going 2-for-4 with a solo HR and some HAVOC on the basepaths. Danny Dorn also doubled for the Bats, bringing his average up to .105 (only his 2nd hit in 19 ABs), and it's worth noting he played first base. Up next: Bats take on Indy again, 7:00.
- Carolina got blown out by Mobile, 10-4. Jordan Smith started the game for the Mudcats, giving up 10 hits in 5 innings, but only 2 runs. The real trouble came in the dreaded 8th, when Ramon Geronimo gave up 6 runs, 5 earned. The offense woke up a little bit, with Logan Parker and Juan Francisco having two hits each and this week's Featured Farmhand Chris Heisey having two hits of his own, including his 3rd HR of the young season. He's batting .419, for those of you keeping track at home. Up next: Carolina is in Mobile again, 8:05 ET.
Sarasota lost another close one in an early affair, 3-2 to Palm Beach. Zach Stewart had a great start for the S-Reds, going 5 innings giving up 1 run and striking out 6. But, as has been the case lately, the offense couldn't get anything going, and here at Farmers Only we're celebrating the players who prevented a no-hitter from being thrown. So Jason Bour, Carson Kainer, and Jacob Kahaulelio, this one's for you. The S-Reds scored one run on a wild pitch and one on an error, so there were no RBIs to be found. Up next: Sarasota takes on Jupiter (the city, not the planet) tonight at 6:00. Jeremy Horst is scheduled to get the start.
- Dayton got shut out again, still seeking that elusive second win of the season, by losing in Fort Wayne, 7-0. Josh Ravin followed up his stellar performance from last week with a mediocre one, giving up 4 runs in 4 innings. Catcher Kevin Coddington added two hits for the Dragons (he's batting a quiet .364 right now), but it wasn't enough to get them past the mighty Wizards. Up next: Lance Janke takes the hill for the Dragons against Fort Wayne, starting at 7:05.
