Farmers Only: Votto to Dayton, Yonder to the shelf

  • Louisville won 5-0 against Gwinnett on a terrific start by Sam Lecure.  LeCure went 6 2/3 innings and gave up 4 hits and no runs.  Federico Baez and Adam Pettyjohn both pitched perfect relief to preserve the shutout.  Kevin Barker was 2-for-4 with a HR and Daniel Dorn hit his 9th of the season as well.  Up next: The Bats take on the Braves again, as Ben Jukich gets the nod.
  • After breaking a 6-6 tie in the top of the 9th, Carolina gave up 2 runs in the bottom to lose to Tennessee 8-7Logan Ondrusek was denied his 3rd win of the season in relief, despite pitching 2 perfect innings out of the bullpen.  He's up to 20 2/3 innings in AA without giving up an earned run.  Sean Henry, Juan Francisco, and Zachary Cozart had two hits each to lead the offense.  Some adjustments made as Yonder went on the DL, as Logan Parker will take over everyday at 1B (he was 0-for-3) and Todd Frazier saw his first action of the season at 3B later on in the game.  Up next: The Yonder-less Mudcats take on Tennessee at 7:15.  No starter listed, but it should be Dallas Buck.
  • Sarasota's on the all-star break.
  • Dayton mustered up 3 hits as they got shut out by West Michigan 5-0Josh Ravin had a good start, going 7 innings and giving up 3 R (2 ER) with 4 strikeouts.  It didn't really matter, as the offense had nothing to contribute.  Up next: Curtis Partch takes on West Michigan at 7.
  • Roster Moves: With Yonder Alonso going on the Carolina DL with a broken hand, outfielder Denis Phipps was called up from Sarasota to take his place.  Pitcher Lee Tabor was also called up to AA. 
  • Votto Watch: Joey Votto is on his way to Dayton after a start in Sarasota and an intrasquad game with the GCL team.
