Farmers Only: Louisville rolls, Dayton gets rolled again

    Jonny Gomes
  • Louisville won 7-4 against Toledo, with the offense having a big day for the Bats.  Adam Rosales stretched his hitting streak to 7 games, with a double and a triple.  Jonny Gomes had a big night, going 3-for-4 with a solo HR, and Chris Valaika had 2 hits and a solo shot as well.  The hits kept coming, as Wes Bankston, Drew Stubbs, and Danny Dorn all had two hits each to contribue to the Bats 14 hits on the night.  Ramon Ramirez started the game for the Bats and kept them in it, and Featured Farmhand Carlos Fisher got his second win of the season in relief, pitching 1 1/3 scoreless innings.  Pedro Viola went 2 hitless innings for the save.  Good times all around in Bats country.  Up next: Matt Maloney takes the hill for the Bats, first pitch at 7 ET.
  • Carolina lost a tough one, 2-1 to Huntsville.  The bullpen combination of Alexander Smit(.com), Derrik Lutz, and Sean Watson went 5 innings of 2-hit scoreless ball, but the offense couldn't get anything going.  Jose Castro led the Mudcats, going 3-for-3 with a double, and Zach Cozart had the only RBI for Carolina on the evening.  Up next: Huntsville again, 7:15.
  • Sarasota also lost 2-1, in a tough day for Reds minor leaguers.  Carson Kainer had two hits for the S-Reds, and Jeremy Horst had a good start, going 6 innings and giving up 2 runs on 4 hits, striking out 5.  Up next: Sarasota starts a new series with Palm Beach, starting at 7.
  • Orville Wright
    A winner
  • Dayton continued its crappy recent form, getting shut out again 10-0 to extend their franchise record 11 game losing streak.  They're just 1-12 on the season.  Not a good day for pitching in Dayton, but Kyle Day and Kevin Coddington combined for half of the Dragons' hits on the evening with 2 each.  Up next: Leonardo Astorga and his 21.00 ERA try to stop the bleeding against Great Lakes, starting at 7:00

Since Dayton has been a city full of losers lately, I'd like to introduce a new feature to Farmers Only.  I'm calling it the Dayton Winner of the Day, and will hopefully take the pressure of the losers in green by highlighting a person from Dayton who isn't a loser.  Today's winner is Orville Wright, who was born in Dayton in 1871.  Orville, along with his brother Wilbur, invented the first successful airplane all the way back in 1903.  It's rumored that GusBellsTaint has an eyewitness report on this event on Red Stockings Reporter, and that Madville missed the reply button and posted an unrelated picture in the comments, but both of these accounts are unconfirmed.
