Farmers Only: "We're going streaking! Everybody's doing it... we're going through Five County Stadium into downtown Zebulon!"

    Sean Henry
  • Louisville finally lost, 7-3 to Pawtucket.  Although he struck out 7, Sam Lecure was not the the cure for anything, giving up 5 runs (3 earned) in 5 innings.  Wes Bankston hit his 9th HR of the season, and Danny Richar was 2-for-4 with a double.  Up next: No scheduled starter for the Bats as they take on the PawSox again, but Ramon Ramirez should make the start at 7:05.
  • Chris Denove
  • Carolina dismantled Tennessee 12-3 to extend their winning streak to 8 games (and sweep the Smokies in a 5 game series), in a game that was shortened to 8 innings by rain.  Sean Henry led the way by going 3-for-4 with his 5th home run of the season and 4 runs scored, and Chris Denove was 4-for-4 with 3 doubles and 2 RBi.  Zachary Cozart hit his second home run in as many games, and Todd Frazier also had two hits.  Chris Heisey went 2-for-5 with his 10th HR of the season and 3 RBI.  He's hitting .384.  Please call him up, Walt.  James Avery was decent in his first start back from the DL, giving up 3 runs in 5, and Sean Watson shined in relief, pitching two perfect innings.  Up next: Alexander Smit(.com) takes on Jacksonville at 7:05.
  • Sarasota lost to Brevard County 7-6 in a 14-inning marathon.  After a blown save by FSL All-Star Enerio Del Rosario in the 9th, it looked like this one was over in the 10th after Del Rosario gave up another run.  Lucky for the S-Reds, a balk by Manatees pitcher Robert Wooten scored Denis Phipps, the tying run.  It went 4 innings after that, and in the 14th Jesus Carnevale gave up a hit to score the winning run.  It was a long night, and Devin Mesoraco, Neftali Soto, Denis Phipps, and Justin Tordi all had two hits apiece.  Up next: Jeremy Horst takes on Brevard County at 7.
  • Dayton beat South Bend 6-3 on a strong start by Josh Ravin.  Ravin went 6 innings and gave up 1 unearned run on 3 hits for his 2nd win of the season.  It's great to see, as he's really struggled, losing his last 5 in a row up to last night.  Another guy who's really performing is Aguido Gonzalez, who pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings for his 5th save of the season.  Offensively, they spread the love around, with David Sappelt, Kyle Day, Humberto Sosa, and Andrew Means with 2 hits each.  Up next: Curtis Partch takes on South Bend at 7.
  • Roster Moves: James Avery was taken off the DL, and Derrik Lutz was placed on it at AA Carolina.  Jake Kahaulelio is back with Sarasota after spending most of the season sidelined.
