Farmers Only: Cinco de Losers

Carolina was rained out last night, but with three more games came three more losses from Reds minor leaguers.  That's 0-7 in the last two days, folks.

  • Louisville lost a wild one 13-9, as Adam Pettyjohn gave up 8 runs (3 ER), 5 of them in a crazy 5th inning that was marred by errors by Luis Bolivar and Drew Sutton.  Yes, that Drew Sutton.  He went 1-for-4 in his Bats debut yesterday, so it seems like his mono is okay for now.  Maybe they waited to put Gonzalez on the DL so they could get Drew a game in AAA first?  He's already on the 40-man, and if he's healthy, he's gotta be the favorite.  Norris Hopper had three hits for the Bats, and Jonny Gomes went 2-for-5 with a 3-run HR, his 4th of the season.  Up next: Matt Maloney takes on Rochester tonight at 7:05.
  • Carolina plays a doubleheader today at 5 with Matt Klinker and Travis Wood going.  I like their chances.
  • Sarasota lost 10-3 to Fort Myers, as Luis Montano didn't have a good start for the S-Reds.  Yonder Alonso led the way on offense with two hits (he's hit in 9 straight to bring his average up to .255), and Justin Reed, Devin Mesoraco, Neftali Soto, and Alex Buchholz all adding one hit for Sarasota.  Up next: Travis Webb takes on Fort Myers at 7.
  • Puckett
  • Dayton's bullpen wasted a decent start by Oscar Castro to lose 7-5, giving up 3 runs in the final two innings.  Impressively, Cody Puckett went 4-for-5, and Humberto Sosa and Enrique Rojas added two hits each for the Dragons.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran takes on Clinton tonight at 7.
