Farmers Only: Johnny Uh-oh

  • Louisville lost 19-3 to Columbus.  Usually these rehab starts are pretty non-descript events, but Johnny Cueto's night was anything but.  Cueto didn't make it out of the second inning, and gave up 8 runs when all was said and done, although only 5 were earned.  Not really a good sign.  David Johnson also got shelled in relief, giving up 7 runs in the next two innings.  The only pitcher to come through unscathed was Danny Ray Herrera, who pitched a scoreless 7th before infielder Michael Griffin gave up 2 more runs in the 8th.  Paul Janish, he ain't.  Danny Dorn and Chris Valaika had two hits each for the Bats.  Up next: Tom Cochran tries to give up less than 19 runs tonight in Columbus.  The festivities start at 7:05.
  • Carolina beat Tennessee 5-3.  Fred Lewis was 2-for-3 on his rehab start, and Denis Phipps and Miguel Rojas had two hits each as well.  Dallas Buck had a good start, going 7 innings and giving up only 2 runs.  Nick Christiani pitched a 1-2-3 9th for his first save of the year.  Up next: Jordan Hotchkiss takes on the Smokies at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield walloped Inland Empire 14-3.  Yasmani Grandal hit two home runs to push his season total to 5, and was 4-for-4 on the night.  Stephen Hunt, fresh up from Billings, also added 3 hits including a homer and drove in 5 runs.  Eric Campbell was 3-for-6 to bring his season average to .500.  However, none of those performances were more impressive than Lance Janke's.  Janke pitched 6 no-hit innings, only walking two hitters, and had a season-high 8 strikeouts.  Tyree Hayes gave up the first hit in the 7th.  Up next: Josh Ravin takes the hill against the 66ers at 10:05 tonight.
  • Dayton shut out Great Lakes 3-0 behind a stellar night by the pitching staff.  Tim Crabbe pitched 5 shutout innings, and Pat Doyle and Drew Hayes pitched the last 4 innings to hold the Loons to just 3 total hits on the evening.  David Vidal went 2-for-3 to lead the offense, and he and Dominic D'Anna both drove in runs.  Up next: Josh Smith takes on Great Lakes at 6:05.
