- Louisville beat Charlotte 2-0 being a masterful outing by Travis Wood. Wood pitched 7 shutout innings, and only gave up 3 hits, striking out 4 and walking 2. With Volquez going on the shelf for a year, I'd have to assume the Reds give Travis a shot. Ramon Ramirez pitched a perfect innings in relief, and Logan Ondrusek got his 2nd save as a Bat. On the offense, Chris Heisey was 3-for-4 with a double to bring his average up to .298, Chris Denove was 2-for-3 with a solo HR, and Drew Stubbs was 1-for-3 with a triple. Up next: Bats get a day off today.
- Carolina broke an 8-8 tie in the 9th to win 9-8 against Tennessee. Juan Francisco was 3-for-5 with his 20th HR of the year, and Logan Parker had three hits as well. Newly converted second baseman Todd Frazier was 2-for-5 with a RBI. Camilo Vazquez got lit up in his start, giving up 7 runs in 4 innings, but Jerry Gil, Sean Watson, and Joe Krebs all pitched well in relief. Up next: Scott Carroll takes on Tennessee at 7:15.
- Matt Fairel had a little trouble in his second start in Sarasota, as the S-Reds fell to St. Lucie 5-2. Fairel had some bad luck in the 1st, giving up 4 runs, but only one of them earned. He ended up going 6 innings, and Justin Freeman and Mark Pawelek each pitched scoreless innings, but the offense couldn't get much together. The S-Reds only managed 5 hits on the night, and Justin Reed was 4-for-4 with 2 RBI to account for almost all of the offense. Up next: Sarasota takes on St. Lucie again at 7.
Dayton got a nice win against Great Lakes, 7-2. Shea Snowden was good in his A-ball debut, going 6 1/3 innings and giving up 1 run on 6 hits while striking out 4. Alexis Oliveras was 3-for-4 with a HR, and Cody Puckett, Carlos Mendez, and Josh Fellhauer all had two hits. Up next: Ezequiel Infante gets the start against Great Lakes at 7.
- Billings lost to Great Falls 7-3. Blair Carson gave up 5 runs in 4 innings, and Yorman Rodriguez and Mauricio Pimental drove in the Mustangs only two runs. Bleh. Up next: Leonardo Astorga takes on Great Falls at 9:05.
- The GCL Reds lost to the GCL Twins 10-3. Daniel Tuttle actually had a good start in this one, giving up 1 unearned run in 4 innings, but the bullpen melted down. Henry Rodriguez was 1-for-4 with a RBI and Juan Duran was 1-for-4. Up next: The GCL Reds are off today.
