- Louisville had three games over the weekend, dropping the series to Buffalo. In Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader, Sam LeCure had some trouble with the Bisons offense, as he gave up 5 runs in 4 to lose 5-1. In Game 2, the Bats blanked Buffalo 2-0, behind a 7-inning shutout by Homer Bailey. Bailey's 1 walk, 5 strikeout performance may not be good enough for some people, but it's good enough for me. In the rubber match of the series on Sunday, Daryl Thompson pitched a quality start but didn't get any run support, as the Bats lost 4-1. Drew Stubbs is finally starting to come on as of late, collecting three hits on Sunday. He's batting .455 in his last six games. Up next: Ramon Ramirez is the scheduled starter, as the Bats open up a new series against Rochester, first pitch at 7:05.
- Carolina split their two games over the weekend with Chattanooga, winning 3-2 on Saturday and losing 5-1 on Sunday. In Saturday's game, Chris Denove was 2-for-5 with a HR, and Zach Cozart and Sean Cumberland had two hits for the Mudcats. However, the pitching Saturday was superb, as Justin Mallett went 6 innings of 2 run ball, and the bullpen pitched 8 innings of 2-hit, shutout ball, combining to strike out 8. Federico Baez, Ruben Medina, Derrik Lutz, and Camilo Vazquez all pitched two innings each, with the latter two giving up no hits. In Sunday's game, James Avery had a solid start, but Sean Watson gave up 4 runs in relief to earn the loss. Todd Frazier had two hits for the Mudcats. Up next: Misael DeJesus takes on 'Nooga again, 7:15 ET.
- Sarasota split their games as well, getting blanked 2-0 by St. Lucie on Saturday and winning 4-3 on Sunday. On Saturday, Zach Stewart pitched 8 strong innings, giving up only two runs and striking out 4, but the Sarasota offense could only muster up 3 hits. On Sunday, Jeremy Horst went 5 1/3 innings of 2 run ball, and Ben Davis earned his 3rd save of the season. Carson Kainer had two hits for the S-Reds, Neftali Soto had two hits and a solo HR, and Yonder Alonso was 1-for-3 with a 3 run shot. Up next: Jerry Gil takes on Fort Myers at 7.
- Dayton dropped both of their games to Fort Wayne, losing 6-1 Saturday and 4-3 Sunday. On Saturday, Matt Fairel had a rough outing, allowing 7 hits and walking 6 in his 4 2/3 innings of work. In Sunday's game, Josh Ravin pitched 5 innings and gave up 2 runs, but Andrew Bowman ran into some trouble in the 7th to break up the tie. Carlos Mendez went 2-for-4 with a HR for the Dragons, and Miguel Rojas had a home run of his own. Up next: Curtis Partch is the next starter in line as the Dragons face Fort Wayne again, 7:05 start.
