Farmers Only: Devin Mesowalkoff!

  • Louisville won both games of their doubleheader against Columbus.  They won the opener 4-2 behind a 3-for-3 day by Jeremy Hermida.  Hermida also added a solo homer, his 2nd of the year.  Tom Cochran started the game and went 5 innings of solid 2-run ball.  Game 2 was even more exciting, as the Bats overcame a 3-run deficit in the final inning to win 5-4 in extras.  Zack Cozart and Chris Valaika both singled runs home, and Valaika almost scored to win the game but was gunned down at the plate, forcing extra innings.  In the next inning, the heroic Devin Mesoraco took a Josh Judy pitch over the center field wall to win in walk-off fashion, his 3rd of the season and an at-bat he might not have got if Corky Miller wasn't pinch-ran for in the final inning.  Up next: Louisville faces Indianapolis at 7:05, starter to be announced.
  • Carolina was off yesterday.  They'll take on Huntsville tonight at 7:43, with Daryl Thompson taking the mound.
  • Bakersfield lost 5-3 to Modesto, despite a good start by Josh Ravin.  Ravin gave up only 1 run in 5 innings while striking out 8.  The top 3 hitters in the Blaze order were a combined 6-12, with Andrew Means, Josh Fellhauer, and Henry Rodriguez all putting up multi-hit efforts.  Up next: Pedro Villarreal takes the hill as the Blaze take on the Nuts at 10:05.
  • Dayton beat Lake County 2-1 behind a dominant pitching performance by Josh Smith.  Smith pitched 6 shutout innings, only giving up 1 hit and walking 2 with 6 strikeouts.  The offense didn't do a lot, but they did enough, with Billy Hamilton scoring one of the runs after stealing his 6th base of the year.  Yorman Rodriguez and Tucker Barnhart drove in the Dragons' 2 runs.  Up next: Daniel Corcino takes on the Captains at 7.
