Farmers Only: Louisville has a spectacular walkoff win. Roar.

  • Louisville beat Lehigh Valley 8-7, overcoming a 9th inning deficit with a walk-off 2-run shot by Juan Francisco to take the win.  That homer was El Nino Destructor's 2nd of the day and 10th overall, and he had 5 RBI total.  Wladimir Balentien hit his 13th of the year as well, and Zack Cozart and Gary Matthews Jr. had two hits each at the top of the order.  Matt Klinker got bailed out with the homer, as he gave up 7 runs in only 4 innings.  Interestingly, when Klinker was taken out before the 5th inning, Yonder Alonso was double switched along with EDR, a curious move for the 5th inning.  Wonder what that's about?  Enerio Del Rosario, Philippe Valiquette, and Danny Ray Herrera combined for 5 shutout innings to allow the comeback.  Up next: Ben Jukich will take on Lehigh Valley at 7:05.
  • Carolina blew a tie game in the 9th to lose 4-3 to Montgomery.  Two of our midseason picks, Devin Mesoraco and Dave Sappelt, homered for the Mudcats, and Tom Cochran gave up 3 runs in 5 1/3 IP.  Up next: Travis Webb gets the ball against the Biscuits at 7:15.
  • Lynchburg lost 6-0 to Myrtle Beach in a game where Chase Ware finally got knocked around.  In only Ware's 2nd start of the year after spending most of his year in the bullpen, he gave up 3 ER in 4 IP to raise his ERA to 1.76 on the year.  Brutal!  Up next: The Hillcats take on the Pelicans again at 7:05, starter is TBD.
  • Dayton lost 3-1 to Peoria, despite a good start by Ricky Bowen.  Bowen pitched 6 innings of 2-run ball, but Chris Richburg's solo shot accounted for the Dragons' only run.  Up next: Tim Crabbe takes the mound against the Chiefs at 8.
  • Billings hammered Idaho Falls 14-5.  It was a team effort on offense, with 5 players with at least 2 hits, 4 of those with 2 RBI as well.  Starlin Gerson had a quality start, giving up 3 ER in 6 IP to get the win.  Up next: Clayton Shunick gets IF at 9:15.
  • The AZL Reds were off yesterday.  They'll take on the AZL Dodgers at 10 tonight.
