Farmers Only: El Nino Destructor picks up where Rosie Red left off

    Juan Francisco
  • Ramon Ramirez struggled for the Bats, as Louisville lost to Indy 8-6.  Ramon went 4 1/3 innings and gave up 8 R, 6 of them earned.  The bullpen was much better, with Jeff Kennard, Pedro Viola, and Adam Pettyjohn combining for 4 2/3 shutout innings, but the deficit was too much for the offense to overcome.  Featured Farmhand Adam Rosales was 2-for-4 with 2 RBI before his callup to the major league club in the afternoon, and Drew Stubbs went 3-for-5 as well.  Jonny Gomes hit his 3rd HR of the season, a 3-run shot, but it wasn't enough.  Up next: Louisville has the day off today.
  • Carolina won a tight one with Tennessee 7-5, as James Avery pitched a great game.  Avery went 8 innings, and gave up 3 runs to get the win, his first of the season.  Juan Francisco had 3 hits for the Mudcats, including his 4th HR of the season, and Zach Cozart and Eric Eymann had two hits apiece.  Up next: Misael DeJesus was supposed to start yesterday, but he'll start today instead, a day game at 11:30.
  • Jeremy Horst
  • Sarasota lost a game because of their bullpen to Charlotte, 8-1Jeremy Horst actually had a great start in this, going 6 innings and giving up 0 ER, but the bullpen blew up in a Lincoln-esque manner to lose the game.  Not much going on offensively, but Justin Reed kept up his hot hitting with 2 hits to extend his hitting streak to 6 games.  Up next: Jerry Gil takes the hill against Charlotte again, 7:00 start.
  • Dayton split their doubleheader with South Bend, dropping the first game 8-0 and winning the nightcap 6-3.  In Game 1, Josh Ravin got knocked around, and David Sappelt, Cody Puckett and Byron Wiley collected a hit each for the Dragons 3 hits in the game.  In Game 2, Curtis Partch went 5 innings of 3 run ball to get the win, and Sappelt and Puckett each homered for the Dragons, with Kevin Coddington getting two hits.  Up next: Oscar Castro is the scheduled starter for the Dragons, as they open up a new series in Beloit at 7:30.
