Farmers Only: The Edinson Volquez Comeback Tour rolls on

  • For all of the supposed firepower of the Louisville offense, they sure are having trouble scoring runs.  At least the pitching has been good.  Last night they won 2-0, on the strength of 7 shutout innings from Chad Reineke.  Bill Bray also threw another shutuout inning.  He has yet to allow a run in 7 2/3 innings.  Chris Burke was 2-4 with a double, and everyone else kinda sucked.  Up Next: Aroldis Chapman will take on Durham at 7:05.
  • Carolina lost a shootout 17-8.  Some rough pitching all around in this one.  Dave Sappelt led the offense, going 3-5 with a triple, and Jake Kahaulelio went 2-4 with his 7th homer.  Scott Carroll will start against Mississippi at 7:15.

  • Lynchburg played a doubleheader, winning 2-0 in the first game.  Edinson Volquez threw 5 shutout innings, allowing just 1 hit and striking out 4.  Donnie Joseph earned the save by striking out the side.  He now has 62 strikeouts in 34 1/3 innings.  I mean, come on, that's ridiculous.  Cody Puckett hit his 9th homer.  They lost the second game 8-1.  James Avery had a rough start, giving up 7 runs in 4 1/3 innings.  Cody Puckett and Efrain Contreras were each 2-3 with a double.  Up Next: Jordan Hotchkiss should start at 7:00.
  • Dayton lost 6-5 behind 5 errors from the defense.  Frank Pfister committed 3 of them at third base.  Josh Garton was 2-4 with his 7th homer.  Up Next: Tim Crabbe starts against Great Lakes at 7:00.
