Farmers Only: The muddy field in Carolina is beginning to affect the defense

  • Louisville was off last night.  They play today at 11:05 AM, and I have absolutely no idea who's starting.  I'd guess Matt Maloney.  Oh yeah, they also have a 7-game losing streak they'll be trying to break.
  • Frazier
  • Carolina lost 5-2 in a game that was marred by Carolina's bad defense.  All 5 Jacksonville runs were unearned, as James Avery gave up no earned runs in 6 1/3 innings of work.  Logan Ondrusek made his AA debut, and pitched very well, going 2 2/3 innings of 2-hit, shutout ball.  Sean Henry led the way with two hits and Todd Frazier hit his 2nd HR of the season.  Oh yeah, and Chris Heisey broke out of his mini-slump, going 1-for-4.  Up next: The Mudcats take on those scumbag Lookouts, in a 7:15 start.  No starter is listed for Carolina.  I figured it would be Justin Mallett, but he's been called up to Louisville so it's kind of up in the air.  Smart money would be on Zach Stewart on 3 days rest or Alexander Smit making his first start of the year after pitching all year in the bullpen.  Probably the latter, with Stewart making his AA debut on Friday.
  • Sarasota split their doubleheader with Jupiter, losing the first game 3-2 and winning the nightcap 4-2.  In Game 1, Neftali Soto and Kevyn Feiner both had two hits, but the S-Reds weren't able to overcome a 3-run deficit by starter Rafael Gonzalez.  In Game 2, Luis Montano had a good start, going 5 innings with 2 runs.  Carson Kainer had two hits to lead the S-Reds, and Yonder Alonso drove in 2 of the 4 runs scored in the 6th inning to give Sarasota the win.  Up next: Jeremy Horst takes on Jupiter at 10:35 in the morning.
  • Puckett
  • Dayton beat Quad Cities 9-3, as Curtis Partch contributed a quality start to Dayton's cause.  Cody Puckett led the way with a 2-for-3 night and his 6th HR of the year, and Carlos Mendez, Kevin Coddington, and Kyle Day all added two hits as the Dragons rolled.  Up next: Lance Janke is scheduled to get the start at 8.
