Farmers Only: Everyone wins except Dead Last Dayton

New, comments
  • Louisville mounted a 5-run rally in the 9th to steal one in Durham 7-6.  The 5 run inning was capped off by a two-run double by Jonny Gomes, who also hit a homer off of David Price on the evening.  Drew Stubbs also continued his hot hitting by going 2-for-5 to bring his average up to .333, a far cry from where it was a few weeks ago.  Pedro Viola pitched another scoreless inning in relief to bring his ERA down to 0.61 and earn his second save of the season.  Up next: Homer Bailey takes on Durham at 7:05.
  • Heisey
  • Carolina got the bats going, as they beat Birmingham 12-5.  What more does Chris Heisey need to do to get called up to Louisville?  He was 3-for-5 with a double to raise his average up to .374, and continues to lead the league in OPS at 1.097.  Eric Eymann also added his 3rd 3-hit game of his last 4 games, along with his first home run of the season.  Everybody in Carolina was hitting, as Zach Cozart, Todd Frazier, Logan Parker, Chris Kroski, and Jose Castro all had 2 hits each to lead Carolina to 18 on the evening.  Oh yeah, and Featured Farmhand Travis Wood started the game for the Mudcats, pitching 7 strong innings of 1-run, 7 strikeout ball.  He's 2-3 on the season with a 1.36 ERA right now.  Up next: Justin Mallett takes on Birmingham at 12:05.
  • Perales
  • Sarasota spanked Fort Myers 11-2 behind 13 hits for the S-Reds.  Dan Perales led the way for the Sarasota offense with two hits and 4 RBI.  You may remember him as the guy the Reds acquired early in 2008 from the D-Backs for LHP Jon Coutlangus and countless jokes to be named later.  Carson Kainer went 3-for-5 with two doubles for the S-Reds, and Neftali Soto, Devin Mesoraco, and Denis Phipps all had two hits each to lead the Sarasota attack.  Up next: Zach Stewart takes on Fort Myers at 7:05.
  • Dayton lost to West Michigan 9-4 to drop 8 of their last 10.  The Dragons are now 8-23 on the season.  On the bright side, Juan Carlos Sulbaran was great, pitching 5 innings of 1 run ball, striking out 8.  Cody Puckett led the way for the offense, going 4-for-4 with 2 doubles.  Stephen Chapman hit his first HR as a Dragon as well.  Up next: Matt Fairel takes on West Michigan at 7.
