Farmers Only: Drew Stubbs' late inning heroics would have come in handy in Cincy

  • Louisville won a wild one against Toledo 6-5 in 11.  The game was tied 2-2 in the 6th, and stayed that way until the Mud Hens put up 3 runs on Jeff Kennard.  Louisville rallied to score 4 times in the bottom of the inning, with hits by Eric Eymann and Daniel Dorn setting the table and Drew Stubbs doubling in the winning run.  Stubbs was 3-for-5 in the game.  Sure couldn't use that at the top of the lineup, right Walt?  Ben Jukich had another good start, going 6 innings of 2-run ball, striking out 9.  In relief, Kip Wells pitched a scoreless inning, and Zach Stewart went 1 2/3 innings of hitless ball.  I think we can rule out all three of them for Friday's start.  It's looking more and more like Lehr's.  Up next: Sam LeCure is scheduled to take on Toledo at 7:05.
  • Carolina also had a comeback in extra innings, as they beat Chattanooga 5-4 in 13.  After Jerry Gil walked 5 hitters to give up the leading run (one was caught stealing), Juan Francisco doubled in two runs to give the Mudcats the win.  El Nino Destructor went 3-for-6 with a HR (his 19th) and 3 RBI in the game, and Stephen Chapman hit his 4th HR of the season.  Matt Klinker started the game, and pitched well, giving up 1 run in 6 innings, striking out 8.  Up next: Tom Cochran takes on Chattanooga at 7:15.
  • Jason Louwsma was the hero, singling in the winning run in the 9th as Sarasota beat Daytona 3-2Zach Ward started and gave up 1 run in 2 1/3 innings of work, and Pedro Villarreal and Steven Otterness picked up the slack, pitching 3 relief innings each.  Villarreal gave up 1 run and Otterness gave up 1 hit to seal the deal.  Alex Buchholz and Shane Carlson had two hits each.  Up next: Jeremy Horst takes on Daytona at 7.
  • Dayton had the opposite happen, as Aguido Gonzalez blew the save in the 9th to fall 4-3 to PeoriaKevin Coddington went 3-for-3 with a walk and Byron Wiley had two hits, including a HR.  Mark Serrano started, and gave up 2 runs in 5 innings.  Ezequiel Infante and Donnie Joseph pitched scoreless relief outings.  Up next:  J.C. Sulbaran takes on Peoria at 7.
  • Billings lost 8-2 to Great Falls, as Luca Panerati got lit up.  The Billings pitching staff has been terrible, as Jason Braun has the best ERA out of anyone who pitched tonight at 6.19, and that's after two perfect innings.  Mariekson Gregorius was 3-for-5 and Tyler Stovall was 2-for-4.  The Golden Child Yorman Rodriguez was 1-for-4 with 3 strikeouts.  Ouch.  Up next: Tim Crabbe takes on Missoula at 9:05.
  • The GCL Reds were blanked by the GCL Orioles 2-0Harold Johnson started and gave up 2 unearned runs in 4 innings of work to lower his ERA to 1.06 on the season.  Nathan Driessen and Raul Rodriguez were also good, each pitching two innings of shutout ball.  Henry Rodriguez had two of the G-Reds 6 hits.  Up next: The G-Reds take on the GCL Red Sox at noon.
  • Roster Moves: Federico Baez and Joe "The Cycle" Krebs join the Carolina bullpen.  Krebs has put up a 2.45 ERA in 55 relief innings in Sarasota so far.  Chris Denove is also off the DL, as Korey Feiner takes his place.  Yen-Wen Kuo is back with Dayton after a stint in Billings.  Jeremy Ware joins the Dayton bullpen after starting the year in the GCL, and has apparently started going by his middle name, Chase.  43rd round pick Ricky Bowen is with Billings, and 22nd rounder David Stewart is with the GCL team.
