Farmers Only: After a brief respite, the organization gets back to the business of losing

New, comments


He's pondering the lack of bullpen support around the organization.

Louisville lost another heartbreaker, this time to Scranton/Wilkes Barre 5-4.  The Good:  Aroldis Chapman only walked 2 in six innings, struck out 4, and only allowed 2 earned runs.  The Bad: He also allowed 2 homers, his first as an American Professional.  Chappy left with the lead after 6, but Enerio Del Rosario gave up 2 runs in 2 innings to lose the lead and ultimately the game.  At least the offense got going a little bit.  Chris Heisey was 2-5 with a 2B, and Chris Valaika and Zach Cozart each were 1-3 with a walk.  4 other Bats reached base safely at least once.  Up Next: The Bats continue their series with SWB Yankees, this time at 11:05 a.m.  Either Matt Maloney or Justin Lehr will start.

Carolina lost to Jacksonville 3-1.  Ruben Medina was strong in relief of Alexander Smit, throwing 3 shutout innings after Smit allowed 3 runs in 5 innings.  Not much offense (again) in this one.  Eric Eymann had 2 hits, and Yonder Alonso was 1-3 with a walk.  Up Next: Matt Klinker will take on Mobile at 8:05 p.m.

Lynchburg lost to Kinston 5-3.  Travis Webb started and threw 5.1 shutout innings, followed by 1.2 shutout innings by Jeremy Horst, but then Andrew Bowman and Scott Gaffney combined to allow 5 runs in 1 inning.  Nice work, guys.  Dave Sappelt was 2-4 with a double, and Neftali Soto hit his first home run of the year.  Up Next:  Mark Serrano will close out the series against Kinston at 7:00 p.m.

Dayton rounded out the poor performance by losing to Lake County 4-1.  Jacob Johnson allowed 4 runs (2 earned) in 5 innings, but at least Donnie Joseph pitched another scoreless inning.  Henry Rodriguez was 2-4 and Andrew Means and Byron Wiley each doubled.  Up Next: Josh Ravin takes on Lake County at 7:00 p.m.
