Sorry for the late post, folks. Crazy times at Casa 'Credsfan.
- Louisville won 4-2 behind a strong start from Aroldis Chapman. Chappy threw 5 2/3 shutout innings, striking out 7 and allowing 3 hits and 3 walks. Drew Sutton was 3-3, Wladimir Balentien continued his resurgence, going 2-2 with 2 walks and his 5th homer of the season. Meanwhile, top prospect Todd Frazier continues to struggle. He was 0-4 with 3 strikeouts. His average dipped to .186 on the year. Common Todd! You can do it! Up Next: Chad Reineke will start an early game against Lehigh Valley at 10:35 a.m.
- Carolina lost 4-3. Joe Krebs, Phillippe Valiquette and Jordan Smith combined for 4 shutout innings from the 'pen. Sean Henry continued his hot hitting, going 1-4 with a triple, as did Jake Kahaulelio, going 1-3 with a walk. Up Next: Someone will pitch tonight at 7:15.
- Lynchburg got trounced 8-2. Mark Serrano started, but left after 2 complaining of elbow tightnes. That's never good. Daryl Harang had a much worse night than his older brother, giving up 8 earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings. A bunch of guys had hits, nobody had more than one, and there was only one extra base hit. (My main man Devin Mesoraco did reach twice, going 1-3 with a walk). Up Next: Matt Fairel takes the hill at 6:05.
Dayton also got beaten soundly, 9-3. Josh Ravin got roughed up, allowing 7 runs (5 earned) in 5 2/3 innings. Josh Garton went 2-4 with a home run, and Andrew Means went 3-4 with a double. Up Next: Justin Walker takes on Lansing at 7:00.
