- Louisville lost to Syracuse 7-4. Adam Pettyjohn got a quality start, but the offense didn't get anything together until the game was out of reach. Federico Baez got a not-so-warm welcome to AAA, giving up 2 runs in his 2/3 of an inning of work, and Jonny Gomes kept hitting with a double on the night. Drew Stubbs is also hitting, as he went 2-for-3. Up next: Matt Maloney takes on Syracuse at 7:05.
- Carolina beat Chattanooga by the same score, 7-4. As was expertly predicted in these parts yesterday, honkballer Alexander Smit(.com) made his first start of the season for the Mudcats, and was pretty solid. Smit(.com) went 5 innings and gave up 2 runs on 4 hits, while striking out 6 and walking none. He also got plenty of offensive help, as Chris Heisey showed that he's back in the groove by going 2-for-5 with a double. Chris Kroski was 2-for-4 with a HR, Zach Cozart and Juan Francisco both had two hits, and Sean Henry belted his 3rd HR of the season. Up next: Zach Stewart makes his AA debut against Chattanooga at 7:15.
- Jeremy Horst pitched a complete game, but was the tough luck loser to Jupiter 1-0. Horst went 8 innings and gave up 1 run on 3 hits, and struck out 6. The S-Reds had trouble getting runs in though, as Alex Buchholz, Yonder Alonso, and Neftali Soto having two hits each, but no runs were scored on the night. Up next: Justin Walker makes his first start of the season against Jupiter at 7:05. Who's Justin Walker, you ask? He's a 41st round pick out of Lamar who pitched in relief in 3 games for the GCL Reds last year. Umm... we'll see how this goes.
- Dayton won 8-5 on a big night for the Dayton offense. Carlos Mendez and Humberto Sosa were both 3-for-5, and Cody Puckett had two hits including his 7th HR of the season. David Sappelt and Miguel Rojas also had two hits each. Lance Janke started for the Dragons, and was solid, but the bullpen did a great job keeping them in the game. Mace Thurman and Aguido Gonzalez combined to pitch 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Up next: J.C. Sulbaran takes on Quad Cities at 8.
- Roster Moves: Kyle Aselton was somehow acquired by Carolina from Birmingham (White Sox). Not sure if it was a trade of a free agent signing, but I'm sure we'll find out soon. it's not the most exciting signing, a former 11th round pick of the Twins, but it's something. Also, Mike Bohana and Josh Beal are now in Sarasota, after starting the season in Dayton and nowhere respectively. Both of them pitched in Billings last year.
