Farmers Only: Could Zach Stewart be positioning himself for a September callup?

    Zach Stewart
  • Louisville won 5-2 over Buffalo behind a solid pitching performance by Matt Maloney.  Maloney went 7 innings and gave up 2 runs and 2 hits while striking out 6.  Zach Stewart pitched two scoreless innings in relief to get the save.  That's 9 2/3 innings in Louisville so far without giving up an earned run, and he hasn't given one up since June 24th, when he was a Mudcat.  In his 89 total innings (split between 3 levels), his ERA is a stellar 1.62.  Wes Bankston was 4-for-4 to lead the offense, and Darnell McDonald hit his 7th HR of the season.  As for the other big time prospects, Chris Heisey had a double to go 1-for-4 and Drew Stubbs and Alex Gonzalez on rehab were held hitless.  Up next: Louisville takes on Buffalo again at 7:05 wiith Ramon Ramirez taking the hill.
  • Carolina won on a late-inning rally in Huntsville, 4-3Stephen Chapman and Todd Frazier both went deep for the Mudcats, and Sean Henry had two hits in the leadoff spot.  Lee Tabor wasn't bad, giving up 2 runs in 5 innings, but Sean Watson, Logan Ondrusek, and Phil-Alex Valiquette combined to give up 1 hit in relief to seal the win.  Up next: The Mudcats take on Huntsville at 8, with Matt Klinker set to go (probably).
  • Wes Bankston
    Mr. BubbaFan?
  • Sarasota lost 4-1 to Clearwater.  Dave Sappelt and Neftali Soto had two hits each, and Chris Kelly pitched 2 shutout innings in relief, but that was about all that happened.  Up next: Sarasota takes on Dunedin at 7.  Luis Montano is likely to get the start.
  • Dayton was off.  J.C. Sulbaran takes on Wisconsin at 8:05.
  • Billings beat Ogden 7-6 led by a 3-run HR by Thomas NurreShea Snowden had some trouble in his start, but the bullpen shut Ogden down.  Up next: The Mustangs are off today.
  • The GCL Reds were off too.  They'll take on the GCL Rays today at noon.
