- Louisville's bullpen cost them this one, giving up 3 runs in the 9th to drop to Buffalo 8-7. Chris Burke and Luis Terrero both homered for the Bats, with Terrero bringing his average up to .464 since coming up from AA. Sam LeCure started the game, giving up 5 runs in 6 innings, but looked to have the win until Jon Adkins gave up 3 in the 9th after another solid performance by Logan Ondrusek. Since his trip down I-71, Logan's rocking a 0.77 ERA. Another interesting tidbit from this one: the winning pitcher from this one was Elmer Dessens. Yes, that Elmer Dessens. He's pitching in the bullpen there, and is 5-0 on the year. Weird. Up next: Travis Wood takes on the Bison at 7:05.
Carolina beat Tennessee 6-5 in a thrilling extra-innings win. The Mudcats were down 2-1 going into the 8th, where they scored 3 runs, only to see the Smokies answer with 2 of their own. The Mudcats struck first in extras with 2 in the 10th, and Tennessee mounted a rally but came up short in the bottom of the frame. Tom Cochran put in another solid start, with 6 innings of 2 run ball, and Sean Henry and Jake Kahaulelio both had two hits. Two of the lesser known prospects in the Carolina lineup, both are hitting over .300 on the year. Up next: Dallas Buck takes the hill against Tennessee at 7:15.
- Lynchburg lost 8-5 to Wilmington, on a night where the starting pitching kept them out of it. Curtis Partch gave up 7 runs and didn't get out of the 2nd inning. Devin Mesoraco went 1-for-5, just like the Devin we know and love, and Alex Buchholz drove in 2 runs for the Hillcats. Up next: Boxy takes on Wilmington at 6:35.
- Dayton beat Fort Wayne 5-4 behind a solid outing by J.C. Sulbaran. J.C. went 5 innings and gave up 3 earned runs, and managed to strike out 6 hitters. The bullpen was very good as well, with Jason Braun, Blair Carson, and Donnie Joseph combining for 1 hit and no runs in their 4 innings of relief. Andrew Means had two hits on offense, and Josh Garton's 3-run shot provided most of the firepower. Thomas Nurre hit a solo shot of his own, too. Up next: Josh Ravin takes on Great Lakes at 7:05.
