  • Louisville dropped 2 of 3 from Scranton over the weekend.  BubbaFan was there, and has put up two great eyewitness reports (so far) about Friday's game and Saturday's game, so if you want to know what happened there, she does a great job of recapping the action and has even better pics.  Sunday's game saw the Bats beat up on Yankees starter Josh Towers early, as they prevailed to win 7-5Ramon Ramirez had a little bit of trouble, but Robert Manuel pitched 3 perfect innings to earn the win.  Pedro Viola was also perfect in his 1 2/3 innings of relief, and Josh Roenicke had a perfect 2/3 of the 9th for his 6th save of the season.  Michael Griffin and Darnell McDonald both homered off of Towers, driving in 3 runs each on the afternoon, and Drew Stubbs was 2-for-4 with a run scored.  Up next: Matt Maloney takes on Scranton at 11:05 in the AM.
  • Carolina extended their win streak to 4 by chalking up 3 wins over the weekend.  On Friday, the Mudcats beat Montgomery 8-3Jordan Smith ran into some trouble of his own, giving up 3 runs in just 4+ innings, but Camilo Vazquez, Logan Ondrusek, and Ruben Medina combined to give up 1 hit in 5 scoreless innings of relief.  Chris Heisey had another big night, going 3-for-5 with a home run and 4 RBI, and Jose Castro and Zach Cozart both had two hits for the Mudcats to contribute to the offense.  Saturday's game saw a hit parade, as the Mudcats had 19 of them to beat Montgomery again 9-3.  Heisey was 3-for-5 with a homer again, and Todd Frazier was 4-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI.  Zach Cozart and Jose Castro each had two hits again, and Juan Francisco and Eric Eymann both contributed 3 and 2 hits respectively.  Curtis Partch started his first game in Carolina, and was solid, going 5 innings of 1 run ball to earn the win.  Despite control problems, Alex Smit pitched 5 shutout innings for the win in a 10-2 victory over Tennessee.  Chris Heisey had three hits in his 3rd straight game, and should probably be in line for a promotion soon.  He's up to batting .378 after his 9-14 weekend.  Todd Frazier also had another big night, going 3-for-4 with a HR and 4 RBI.  Up next: Zach Stewart takes on Tennessee at 7:15.
  • Sarasota won their first one against Dunedin before dropping two to Daytona over the weekend.  On Friday, Travis Webb was a stud, going 7 1/3 innings and striking out 6 in a 4-1 win.  He struck out 6 in his effort, and dropped his ERA below 4 in his 3rd win of the season.  Neftali Soto was the star hitter, going 4-for-4, and Yonder Alonso collected two hits as well.  On Saturday, Rafael Gonzalez pitched 5 shutout innings, but the bullpen didn't help, losing the game for the S-Reds 3-2 to Daytona.  Yonder Alonso, Neftali Soto, and Jason Louwsma each had two hits for S-Reds, but they didn't get much help.  On Sunday, the S-Reds lost 11-3 to Daytona as the pitching staff got shelled.  Devin Mesoraco led the way with 2 hits. Up next: Sarasota takes on Daytona at 7:05, and while there's no starter listed, I think it'll be Jeremy Horst.
  • Dayton lost 3 games at home against Cedar Rapids over the weekend.  Although Josh Ravin was decent, striking out 8 hitters in 6 innings, the Dragons lost 5-2.  Featured Farmhand Cody Puckett was 2-for-3.  On Saturday, they lost 5-3 in 11 innings, behind a quality start by Oscar CastroDavid Sappelt led the way with two doubles for the offense.  Lance Janke got roughed up on Sunday to drop 7-4 to the KernelsCarlos Mendez hit a 2-run homer in the loss.  Up next: Dayton's off tomorrow.
