Farmers Only: Dayton needs to learn how to play nice and share that offense

  • Louisville were one of two Reds minor league clubs to get shut out, as they lost to Pawtucket 2-0Charlie Zink of the PawSox was the second pitcher to throw a one-hitter against the Bats in the series, as Michael Griffin secured the only Bats hit in the 5th.  Matt Maloney had another good start, as he went 7 innings and gave up 2 runs on 7 hits and struck out 7.  Ben Jukich and Josh Roenicke both pitched perfect innings in relief, but it didn't matter with the offensive struggles. Up next: Homer Bailey takes on Pawtucket at 7:05.
  • Rojas
  • Carolina also got shut out by Montgomery, 3-0Zach Stewart pitched 4 innings of scoreless ball, but he was pulled before the 5th.  Let's hope it's not an injury, but that's what it's looking like at the moment.  Kyle Aselton continued to bring the suck, by giving up 3 runs in 1 1/3 for the loss.  It's a shame, because Sean Watson and Ruben Medina were perfect in their relief outings of 2 2/3 and 1 inning respectively.  Offensively, a Chris Heisey triple and Todd Frazier double were the only two hits on the night for the Mudcats.  Up next: Travis Wood takes on Montgomery at 7:15.
  • Philippe-Alexandre Valiquette blew his first save of the season, as Sarasota blew a one run lead in the 9th to lose 3-2 to Dunedin.  Once again, Jeremy Horst gets denied a win despite a good outing.  Horst went 7 innings and gave up 1 run, while striking out 6 hitters.  Tony Brown hit a 2-run home run in his first start at DH for the S-Reds, but other than that, not much offense was happening.  Up next: Rafael Gonzalez takes the hill against Dunedin at 7.
  • Mendez
  • Apparently, Dayton was hoarding all of the offense for the night, as they routed Wisconsin 14-4Miguel Rojas led the way, going 3-for-5 with his 2nd home run of the season, and 3 RBI total, and Carlos Mendez had 4 hits and 3 RBI too.  Andrew Means was 2-for-5 in the 3rd spot in the lineup, and leadoff hitter David Sappelt had two doubles to add to the cause.  Featured Farmhand Cody Puckett also drove in two runs.  Yen-Wen Kuo went 2-for-4 to get his first hits of the season.  Oh yeah, and J.C. Sulbaran pitched another nice game, going 6 innings of 2 run, 7 strikeout ball, all without walking any hitters.  Up next:  Matt Fairel takes on Wisconsin at 7.
  • Roster Moves:  Homer Bailey is now on the Louisville roster, which will come in handy as he's pitching tonight.  James Avery is on the DL in Carolina with an injury that hasn't been disclosed yet (or, at least I haven't been able to find it).
