- Louisville lost 4-2 in their opening game against Rochester, as Ramon Ramirez got beat around again for his 3rd loss of the season. Norris Hopper and Danny Richar combined for 4 of the Bats 6 hits with 2 each, and Drew Stubbs stole two bases and got caught stealing once, even though he didn't have a hit. Pedro Viola pitched another inning of scoreless ball to drop his ERA to 0.96 on the season. Up next: Adam Pettyjohn takes on Rochester, starting at 7:05.
- Carolina's pitching staff got abused by the Lookouts, as they dropped to Chattanooga 12-4. Misael DeJesus gave up 5 runs in 4, and honkballer Alexander Smit gave up 4 runs in his 2 2/3 innings of work. Chris Heisey continues to rake for the Mudcats, going 2-for-4 to bring his average up to .345, and Michael Griffin went 3-for-3. Up next: The Mudcats open up a series against Mobile at 7:15. Alexander Smit is the listed starter, but since he pitched last night, I would assume Dallas Buck would get the start, since he's next in line.
- Sarasota tried to rally scoring 3 runs in the 9th, but ultimately lost to Fort Myers 8-6. Jerry Gil gave up 5 runs in 6 to drop his record to 0-5. It was nice to see the S-Reds offense get a little bit going, with Carson Kainer, Yonder Alonso, Alex Buchholz, and Devin Mesoraco each having 2 hits, but even Mesoraco's 2nd home run of the season wasn't enough to overcome a 5-run deficit. Up next: Luis Montano gets the start against Fort Myers, 7:00.
- Dayton's pitching got roughed up, as they lost a close one to Fort Wayne 8-7. Jordan Wideman and Kyle Day had drove in three and two runs respectively, but Curt Partch was wild in his start, walking 5 TinCaps to give up 5 runs (3 ER) in his 5 innings. Up next: Oscar Castro is the scheduled starter as the Dragons start a new series with Clinton, 7 ET.
