Farmers Only: Matt Klinker stops the bleeding in Carolina, and an exciting late rally in Lynchburg

  • The Bats were off yesterday.  Matt Maloney will take the hill against Rochester at 7:05 tonight.
  • Carolina beat Chattanooga 3-0 behind another good start by their stopper, starter Matt Klinker.  Klinker pitched 6 shutout innings, only giving up 4 hits and no walks while striking out 7 hitters.  Joe Krebs, Ruben Medina, and Jordan Smith combined to give up 1 hit in 3 relief innings.  Props, fellas.  Denis Phipps and Chris Denove had 2 hits each to lead the offense, and Klinker helped his own cause by driving in a run.  Up next: Dallas Buck takes on 'Nooga at 7:15.
  • Lynchburg rallied in the 9th to beat Kinston 3-2.  The Hillcats were down 2-0 going into the 9th, but the game was tied up by a Justin Reed 2-run homer, and Alex Buchholz was the hero, driving in the winning run.  Matt Fairel had a decent ounting, going 6 innings of 2-run ball, and Lance Janke pitched 3 hitless innings of relief to earn the win.  Up next: Scott Carroll takes on Kinston at 6:05.
  • Dayton's game against Lake County was suspended at 0-0 after 3 innings.  Pedro Villarreal is the current pitcher for the Dragons, and has yet to give up a hit.  Unfortunately, the Dragons don't have a hit yet, either.  They'll resume the game tonight at 5:30, and J.C. Sulbaran will take on the Captains after that.
