Farmers Only: Dayton lets the Baby Dragon out of the basket!

  • Our top story tonight... Dayton wins 7-5 to snap their 11 game losing streak!  Byron Wiley went 2-for-3 with 4 RBI to lead the Dayton offensive attack, and Mace Thurman pitched well out of the bullpen, giving up no hits or runs in his two innings of work, striking out 5.  Congrats, Dragons!  Up next: Maybe I'm getting cocky here, but I think they can make it a two game winning streak tomorrow in South Bend.  That one starts at 2 ET.
  • Louisville's blows a good start by Matt Maloney to lose 5-4 to Toledo in 10 innings.  Maloney went 6 innings, gave up 5 hits and 1 run, and struck out 7 while walking 0.  Arguably, he's pitching the best baseball in Louisville right now.  He left with a 4-1 lead, which was blown when Josh Roenicke gave up 2 runs in the 9th for his 2nd blown save of the year.  Adam Pettyjohn gave up the winning run in the 10th.  Offensively, Adam "Pete" Rosales extended his hitting streak to 8 games, going 2-for-5 with a double.  He's still batting over .400.  Chris Valaika was 2-for-5 with a solo HR, Norris Hopper went 2-for-5 with a triple, and Kevin Barker went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI.  Up next: TheBobblehead takes on Toledo, game time 7 ET.

  • Carolina loses to Huntsville, 12-9.  Errors were pivotal in this one, as the Cats gave up 5 unearned runs.  A pivotal error by pitcher Federico Baez led to 3 runs given up by the Mudcats, which isn't good in a tie game in the 9th.  Starter Misael DeJesus wasn't much better on the mound, giving up 9 R (6 ER) in 3 1/3 innings of work.  The offense was decent, with Chris Heisey having a big night going 3-for-6 with a HR and 3 RBi, and Zach Cozart making up for his defensive miscues (2 errors at SS) by going 3-for-5.  Logan Parker had two hits, including his 2nd HR of the season, and El Nino Destructor Juan Francisco claimed his third life of the season with one of his two hits.  Chris Kroski also had two hits and a homer, but with the pitching as bad as it was, the Mudcats couldn't hang on.  Up next: Dallas Buck takes on Tennessee, 7:15 ET start.
  • Sarasota lost big time to Palm Beach, 10-3Jerry Gil keeps proving that the Rick Ankiel experiment doesn't work as well the other way around, giving up 4 runs in 5 to drop to 0-3 on the season.  Alex Buchholz and Neftali Soto had two hits each, and Dan Perales had two hits and an RBI.  Up next: Sarasota takes on Palm Beach again, 6 ET.
