First of all, thanks to PeteyHendrix for the news that Yonder Alonso was sent to AAA yesterday. He started at 1B last night, but should see plenty of time in LF as well. Now, on to the games!
- Louisville lost to Buffalo, 6-1. The Bats had 8 hits but could only muster one run on Todd Frazier's 3rd home run of the season. Travis Wood went 5 1/3 and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits and 4 walks. He also gave up 3 home runs. Enerio Del Rosario threw a scoreless inning of relief, lowering his ERA to 1.83. In addition to Frazier's homer, Alonso went 1-4, and Corky Miller was 3-3. It can't mean anything that Corky is hitting .348 on the year, right? RIGHT? Up Next: Chapmania ensues against Rochester at 7:05.
- Carolina beat Tennessee 5-3. Dallas Buck had a strong start to earn the win, going 6 1/3 and allowing only 2 runs. The offensive attack was spread out, with 6 of the 8 starters reaching base safely. Kris Negron was the only Mudcat with 2 hits. Up Next: The Yonderless Mudcats finish their series with Tennessee at 7:15. Travis Webb will start
- Lynchburg lost to Wilmington 4-3. Sean Watson took the loss after giving up the winning run in 2 innings of relief. Bradley Boxberger didn't have his best outing, lasting 5 and giving up 3 runs on 7 hits. He did strike out 5, though, and also induced plenty of grounders. Cody Puckett and Josh Fellhauer each had 2 hits and a walk, and Neftali Soto hit his 6th double and also had 3 RBI. Again, a well balanced attack as 8 of the 9 starters reached base safely at least once. Up Next: Mark Serrano takes on Winston-Salem at 6:05.
- Dayton beat Great Lakes 5-4. Josh Ravin got the win after going 6, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits and a walk. Henry Rodriguez hit his 5th homer of the season, Frank Pfister was 1-3 with a double and a walk, and Alex Oliveras was 2-3 with a walk, and his first home run. Up Next: Justin Walker takes on Great Lakes at 7:05.
