Farmers Only: Maloney got rocked, good pitching in Sarasota and Billings, and a surprising retirement

  • Matt Maloney got lit up as Louisville lost to Syracuse 8-5.  Matty gave up 8 runs in 4 innings of work.  Ramon Ramirez was good in relief, only giving up 1 hit in 3 innings, and Logan Ondrusek put up a perfect inning in his AAA debut.  Darnell McDonald was 3-for-5 to lead the offense, and a Kevin Barker grand slam almost brought the guys back.  For the guys who have recently gotten some callup talk, Drew Stubbs was 1-for-5 with an RBI and Chris Heisey had the night off.  Up next: Louisville takes on Toledo at 7:05.  No starter listed.  Ben Jukich is next in line, but if that changes, you'll be the first to know.
  • Carolina got blanked by Chattanooga 3-0Lee Tabor gave up 2 runs in 5 innings, and Ramon Geronimo and Enerio Del Rosario both pitched scorless relief outings.  Carson Kainer had two of the Mudcats 5 hits.  Up next: Matt Klinker takes on 'Nooga at 7:15.
