Farmers Only: The Hillcats are at the top of the hill, the Mudcats are stuck in the mud

  • Louisville still can't catch a break, as they dropped their 6th in a row, a 3-2 loss to ScrantonChad Reineke gave up the game winner, a walk-off solo shot in the 9th to break a 2-2 tie.  Justin Lehr had a good start, giving up only 2 runs in 6 innings, and Logan Ondrusek pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen before the 9th inning implosion.  Todd Frazier and Chris Burke had two hits each, and Wladimir Balentien hit his first home run of the year, a solo shot.  His 1-for-3 night raised his average to .063 on the year, and he drove in his first run of the year too.  Up next: Bats take on the Yanks at 7:05.  No starter listed, but it's Sam LeCure's spot in the rotation.
  • Carolina was the victim of a crappy offense this time, mustering up only 5 hits in a 5-0 shutout by Mobile, their 11th straight loss.  D-Backs prospect Wes Roemer pitched a shutout, taking care of the Mudcats on only 100 pitches, striking out 8 of them and not walking anybody.  Props.  Matt Klinker had a decent start in this game, giving up 4 runs in 6 innings with 9 strikeouts.  Klinker is tied for the league lead in strikeouts, and is sporting a 2.76 ERA, but a crappy lineup behind him has his record at 1-3 on the year.  Up next: Dallas Buck tries to break the streak against Mobile at 8:05.
  • Mark Serrano
  • Lynchburg had a rough 9th, but held on to beat Kinston 7-6Mark Serrano had a great start, going 6 innings of 2-run ball with 5 strikeouts.  Lance Janke pitched two hitless relief innings before Jeff Jeffords and Justin Freeman combined to give up 4 runs in the 9th, but held on for the win.  Kyle Day was the hero on offense, going 3-for-4 with his 2nd homer of the year and 2 runs batted in.  Up next: The Hillcats take on Kinston again at 6:05, with no starter listed.  With the off day, it's technically Matt Fairel's day.
  • Kyle Day
  • Dayton lost 4-1 to Lake County, despite a solid outing by Pedro Villarreal.  Villarreal gave up 2 runs in 6 innings, but only received 3 hits in support, 2 of them by Mariekson Gregorius, one a triple with a RBI as well.  Up next: Josh Ravin takes on Bowling Green at 7.
