  • Travis Wood made his best case for not only staying in the rotation, but getting a call up as well, but the effort was wasted as Louisville lost 2-0.  Wood threw 7 innings, allowing both runs, but only one was earned.  He gave up 4 hits and a walk and struck out 10.  In 83 innings he has 81 strikeouts and only 20 walks.  That's gettin' it done.  What's not gettin' it done is 4 hits and no walks by the Bats offense.  Common hitters!  Support your pitcher!  Oh, and Bill Bray also threw a shutout inning, giving up a hit and striking a batter out.  Up Next: Against all better judgment Chad Reineke will get another start, this time against Durham at 7:05 p.m.
  • Carolina was off.  Up Next: Travis Webb faces Mississippi at 7:05.
  • Lynchburg lost 2-1.  Brad Boxberger didn't dominate, but went 4 2/3, giving up 2 runs while striking out 6.  He was a bit unlucky, as he only allowed 2 fly balls the entire game, but one went out for a homer.  Nick Christiani and Justin Freeman combined for 4 1/3 shutout innings of relief.  Offensively the Cats were worse than the Bats, only mustering 3 hits and a walk.  Well, I guess about the same...Josh Fellhauer and Neftali Soto each had doubles.  Up Next: Mark Serrano goes against Kinston at 7:05.
  • Dayton won 9-8.  This start was almost wasted.  Last year's 43rd round pick, Ricky Bowen, lasted 5 innings, giving up 2 runs while striking out 3.  This kid isn't acting like a 43rd round pick, as on the season he has racked up 20 strikeouts in 17 IP.  The next three Dragons pitchers each gave up 2 earned runs, for a total of 6 runs in 4 IP.  Luckily that was it, and the Dragons held on.  Frank Pfister was 4-4, Shane Carlson was 2-4 with a double, and Cameron Satterwhite was 2-4 with a double.  Up Next: Justin Walker takes on Fort Wayne at 7:05.
