- Sam Lecure only gave up 1 run in his 6 innings of work as Louisville rolled 7-3 against Toledo. Kevin Barker led the way going 3-for-4 with a solo HR, and Drew Stubbs, Darnell McDonald, and Daniel Dorn all had two hits. Logan Ondrusek pitched 1 2/3 innings of one hit ball to get his first save in AAA. As mentioned in the postgame show, LeCure's start tonight pretty much rules him out for Friday's TBA start in Cincinnati, pretty much ensuring that it goes to Justin Lehr. I can't see it going to anyone else at this point, unless they take Masset out of the bullpen. Up next: Travis Wood takes on Toledo at 7:05.
- Carolina came up with 2 runs in the 8th to beat Chattanooga 2-1. Tom Cochran had another good start, pitching 7 innings of 1-run ball, and Ruben Medina and Enerio Del Rosario pitched perfect relief innings to nail down the win and the save. Sean Henry and Jake Kahaulelio drove in the Mudcat runs. Up next: Camilo Vazquez takes the hill against Chattanooga at 7:15.
Sarasota beat Daytona 2-1 behind a good start by Jeremy Horst. Horst made it into the 9th, pitching 8 1/3 innings and giving up 1 run while striking out 5. Devin Mesoraco was the offense, going 2-for-3 with a HR. Up next: Matt Fairel makes his High-A debut against Brevard County at 7:05.
- Remember when I said on the postgame show that Peoria was mounting a rally in the 9th against Dayton? They ended up scoring 10 runs in the 9th off of Dragons relievers to beat Dayton 13-7. Credit Mike James, Aguido Gonzalez, and Donnie Joseph for the epic meltdown. J.C. Sulbaran started, pitching 5 innings of 3 run ball. The only good pitcher on the night was Chase Ware, who pitched 2 scorless innings in his A-ball debut. Carlos Mendez and Alexis Oliveras had two hits each for the offense. Up next: Lance Janke takes on Peoria at 7.
Billings broke a 4-4 tie in the 8th to beat Missoula 6-4. After Tim Crabbe had some trouble out of the gate, Justin Walker picked him up with 4 innings of 1-hit relief. The Mustangs managed 16 hits on the night, with Tyler Stovall and Frank Pfister having 3 each and Mariekson Gregorius, Yorman Rodriguez, Mauricio Pimentel, and Chris Richburg with 2 hits each. Up next: The Mustangs take on Missoula again at 9:05, with Blair Carson taking the hill.
- The GCL Reds lost to the GCL Red Sox 3-1 in a 7 inning game that was shortened by rain. Tzu-Kai Chiu pitched 2 2/3 innings of 1-hit relief, and Danny Hernandez and Henry Rodriguez each had two hits. Up next: The GCL Reds take on the GCL Twins at noon.
Roster Moves: Federico Baez is back in Louisville, but the big news of the night is that former Featured Farmhand Matt Fairel got promoted to Sarasota. He was 8-5 with a 2.93 ERA in 19 starts in Dayton. Catcher Petr Cech is in Billings after spending most of the season in
West Londonthe GCL.
