Farmers Only: Wladdy continues to impale fools

  • Louisville won 7-5 behind another big night by Wladimir Balentien.  Wlad went 3-for-4, hitting his 20th HR of the year, and has a line of .400/.441/1.167 over the last 10 games.  That's an OPS of 1.608 for those of you scoring at home.  For a team that's been considering picking up a bench bat, isn't Wlad at least worth a looksie?  Juan Francisco and Yonder Alonso also homered, and Chris Dickerson doubled twice to bring his average to .429 on his rehab stint.  Sam LeCure gave up 5 runs in 6 innings, and Aroldis Chapman had another scoreless bullpen outing.  Up next: Matt Maloney takes on Charlotte at 7:05.
  • Carolina lost to Jacksonville 6-2.  Despite a crappy start by Travis Webb, the Mudcats' bullpen was solid, with Jeremy Horst and Federico Baez pitching 2 perfect innings each.  Mike Costanzo was the sole bright spot on offense, going 3-for-3 with a homer.  Up next: Matt Fairel takes the hill at 7:05.
  • Lynchburg lost a heartbreaker 8-7.  In a 5-2 game coming into the 9th, Shane Carlson drove in the tying run with a single after a Jose Gualdron double, and after a sac fly and Kyle Day's double drove in 2 more, the Hillcats were encouraged.  In the bottom of the 10th, the Keys came back on Donnie Joseph, as he allowed 3 runs (only 2 earned) to blow the save.  Chris Richburg was 3-for-4 with a homer.  Up next: Curt Partch at 7:05.
  • Dayton lost 5-3 to Bowling Green.  Cameron Satterwhite hit his 7th homer as one of his 2 hits, and Justin Walker gave up 5 runs in 6 innings.  Up next: Tim Crabbe takes the mound at 7:05.
  • Billings got a well deserved off day.  Daniel Tuttle will take on Missoula at 9:05.
  • The AZL Reds lost to the AZL Giants 6-1Mitchell Clarke gave up 5 runs in 3 innings, but all were unearned, and Joel Ernst and Luca Panerati pitched 2 shutout innings of relief behind him.  Robert Maddox and Samuel Diaz had two hits each.  Up next: A-Reds take on the AZL Cubs at 10.
