- Bobblehead candidate Sam LeCure pitched a gem, as Louisville blanked Toledo 6-0. LeCure went 6 2/3 innings, gave up 3 hits, no runs, and struck out 6. Pedro Viola and Robert Manuel both were nails out of the bullpen. The Bats hot bats kept hitting, with Adam Rosales stretching his hitting streak to 9 games, and Wes Bankston went 2-for-4 with his 4th home run of the season, his 3rd in 5 games. Norris Hopper also had two hits, including a triple, to bring his average up to .254 on the season. Up next: Louisville takes on Toledo again, 2 PM start.
- Conversely, Carolina lost to Tennessee 5-0. Dallas Buck started for the Cats, going 6 2/3 innings, giving up 5 R (3 ER), striking out 4. It was a solid start for Buck, but it didn't matter, as the offense saw 7 players have one hit each, apparently not in a sequence that scored a run. Hot hitting Mudcat Chris Heisey had the day off. Up next: Carolina takes on Tennessee again, starting at 2 PM.
- Lucky for the Sarasota Reds, the Palm Beach Cardinals don't have Albert Pujols, so they were able pull off a win 4-3. Matt Klinker started for Sarasota, going 4 2/3 innings, allowing 3 ER, but the bullpen kept the S-Reds in the game long enough to to come back. The bullpen combination of Logan Ondrusek, Joseph Krebs, and Ben Davis combined to pitch 4 1/3 hitless, scoreless innings. Devin Mesoraco was the offensive force, going 2-for-3 with 2 RBI and the solo HR in the 8th to give the S-Reds the lead. Up next: Palm Beach again, 1 PM.
Dayton can't keep up its winning ways, dropping to South Bend 9-3. Leonardo Astorga is struggling something fierce for the Dragons. He pitched 4 innings, giving up 7 runs on 9 hits, taking his ERA up to 18.90. Any chance he can get replaced in the Dragons rotation? Lance Janke could take over from the bullpen, or one of the guys at extended ST could come in and take a shot. What's Kyle Lotzkar up to? Byron Wiley kept hitting for Dayton, going 2-for-3 with 2 RBI, but he can't overcome a deficit like that by himself. Up next: Matt Fairel takes on South Bend, starting at 2.
