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.
- 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.
- 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.

Stephen Chapman hit his first HR as a Dragon as well. Up next: Matt Fairel takes on West Michigan at 7.
