Farmers Only: Bats blast their way to another win

  • Louisville won 5-2 against Indianapolis behind the power of the long ball.  Dave Sappelt, Todd Frazier, and Kris Negron (the Bats new center fielder?!) all homered, and that was more than enough for Chad Reineke.  Reineke went 6 2/3 innings and gave up 2 runs on 6 hits.  Danny Ray Herrera and Carlos Fisher combined to give up 1 hit to close out a solid win.  Up next: Dontrelle Willis tries to build on his good first outing tonight at 7:15 against Indy.
  • Carolina lost 6-2 to Huntsville to bring their record on the year to 1-6.  James Avery was shaky in his start, but Donnie Joseph bounced back after a rough first outing to throw a hitless 9th.  Denis Phipps did a lot to work his way off the stale list this week, with a 3-for-4 evening.  Cody Puckett was 2-for-4 with a homer.  On a minor note, Fred Lewis started his rehab assignment and went 1-for-3.  Up next: Dallas Buck takes on Huntsville at 6:43.
  • Bakersfield lost 6-2 to Inland Empire, only able to score 2 runs off of 10 hits.  Curtis Partch gave up 3 runs on 12 hits in 5 innings, and Tyree Hayes and Tzu-Kai Chiu each pitched 2 innings and gave up no earned runs (although Chiu gave up 3 unearned runs).  On offense, Chris Richburg and Eric Campbell had two hits each, but nobody else got anything going.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran takes on the 66ers at 10:15 ET.
  • Dayton still can't catch a break, suffering another loss, 7-3 to Lake County.  Yorman Rodriguez hit his 2nd homer of the year, but that was about all that was positive about this game.  Tanner Robles only got one out in his start, ending up with 5 runs given up.  Pat Doyle put up 3 1/3 innings of scoreless ball, but the offense couldn't come back from that huge early deficit.  Up next: The Dragons take on Lansing tonight at 7:05, starter is TBA.
