Farmers Only: Chris Heisey should start his own leaf removal company, because he's raking in Carolina

New, comments
  • Louisville won 6-1 on a strong outing by Sam LeCure.  Sam had a great start, going 7 shutout innings, giving up 5 hits, and striking out 8 while walking nobody.  Pedro Viola pitched a hitless 9th to bring his ERA down to a stellar 0.87.  The Bats bats came alive, with Jonny Gomes belting his 6th home run of the season, and Danny Richar and Drew Sutton each hitting their first.  Craig Tatum and Drew Stubbs also got in on the action, each having two hits.  Up next: Homer Bailey takes on Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at 7:05.
  • Heisey
  • Chris Heisey continues to show the Carolina brass that he deserves a callup, although he couldn't overcome the BayBears by himself as the Mudcats dropped to Mobile, 7-4Heisey's Lawn Service was 4-for-5 and a triple away from the cycle, and is now batting .378 on the season.  He's hit in 7 straight, and has gotten on base in every game this season.  Todd Frazier and Michael Griffin were both 2-for-4.  Up next: Jordan Smith returns from the DL to take on Mobile at 7:15.
  • Stewart
  • Sarasota won 3-1 behind a dominant performance from Zach Stewart.  Z-Stew pitched a complete game, giving up 1 run on 5 hits, striking out 6 while walking 1.  Alex Buchholz led the way for the offense, going 2-for-3 with his second home run of the year, and Carson Kainer (who is tearing up Sarasota right now) added two hits to bring his average up to .305.  Up next: Jeremy Horst looks to build off a great outing last time, first pitch at 7:05.
  • Dayton dropped a tough one in 14 innings, losing to Clinton 6-4Matt Fairel had another great start, giving up 3 runs in 6, but striking out 10 for his second double-digit strikeout game of the season. 
    He's now 2nd in the MWL in Ks.  The bullpen for the most part was solid, with Mace Thurman pitching 3 innings of one run ball and newcomer Mark James going 3 1/3 innings of scoreless ball in his Reds organization debut.  On offense, every Dayton position player had at least 1 hit, and the Dragons had 13 in all.  Kyle Day was 1-for-6 with his first HR of the season, and another Dayton newcomer, Stephen Chapman, got his second hit in as many nights as a Dragon.  Farmers Only mainstays Byron Wiley and David Sappelt had two hits each, and Carlos Mendez was 3-for-6.  Up next: Dayton starts a new series against Kane County at 7.  No scheduled starter yet, but Josh Ravin is the next in line.
