Farmers Only: A jubilant Ben Jukich rejoices after a glorious Louisville win; everyone else sucks

    Ben Jukich
    Non-evil Jukich
  • Louisville won 4-1, on a strong start by the spawn of Satan, Ben Jukich.  He gave up only one run in 6 innings, and struck out 4 for his second win of the season.  His ERA is so far is an impressive 1.64, and surprisingly, his picture from this season is actually pretty lighthearted and not intense.  It's also worth noting that Robert Manuel, Pedro Viola, and Josh Roenicke combined to pitch 3 innings (1 each), 1 hit, and 5 strikeouts.  The offense got in on the action too, with Adam Rosales and Danny Dorn having two hits and a solo HR each.  Craig Tatum also had two hits, and Kevin Barker had a 2-R HR of his own.  Way to go, Bats!  Up next: Sam LeCure takes on Indy in a day game, 1:15 ET.
  • Mudcats can't overcome a 9-run deficit in the 2nd, to lose 9-4 to Mobile.  Misael DeJesus didn't get out of the second inning, giving up 8 ER in 1 1/3.  Yikes.  The bright side?  The Carolina bullpen went 6 2/3 scoreless innings, with strong outings from Alexander Smit(.com), Federico Baez, Sean Watson, and Camilo Vazquez.  Offensively, they had lots of hits (12 total), but only 4 runs to show for them, led by two hits each from Jose Castro, Michael Griffin, Eric Eymann, and Sean Henry.  Featured Farmhand Chris Heisey also doubled in a run, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Mudcats from losing their 4th straight.  Up next: The Mudcats take a much needed day off tomorrow, before starting a new series at home against Huntsville.
  • Sarasota lost 3-1, dropping their 6th in a row.  It may be time to start getting worried about the Sarasota hitters... the Bash Quadruplets went 3-16, with Buchholz going hitless.  Look at these averages so far this season... Buchholz: .222, Alonso: .167, Soto: .147, Mesoraco: .120.  Eesh.  Up next: Matt Klinker tries to stop the bleeding against Jupiter, 1:00 start.
  • Cody Puckett
  • Dayton lost in extras to drop their 7th in a row, 6-5 to Fort Wayne.  Matt Bohana put a runner on, and Scott Gaffney couldn't keep him in check in the 10th, giving up a walk and the walk-off single.  Dayton was actually able to put together some offense, with Cody Puckett (no relation) going 3-for-5 with a 3-run bomb and a stolen base, Humberto Sosa and Kyle Day having two hits each, and David Sappelt going 1-for-5 with 2 bouts of HAVOC and a run scored.  Curtis Partch had trouble in his start, walking 5, and the only relief performance of note was Aguido Gonzalez's 2 2/3 innings of 1 hit scoreless ball.  Up next: Leonardo Astorga gets the start in the finale in Fort Wayne, game time at 3:05.
