Farmers Only: More bullpen woes for Louisville

  • Louisville lost 6-5 after more bullpen troubles.  Dontrelle Willis had another solid start, going 7 innings and giving up 2 runs with 4 strikeouts and 2 walks.  Kyle McCulloch got into a jam in the 8th, but Danny Ray Herrera bailed him out.  In the 9th, DRH tried to nail down the save with a 2 run lead, but gave up 3 runs, including the game winner.  Daniel Dorn hit his 3rd homer of the year for the offense, and Fast Fred Lewis was 1-for-5 with a double on his rehab assignment.  Up next: Johnny Cueto will take the mound against Durham at 6:35.
  • Carolina won 6-4 behind some serious firepower by Cody Puckett.  Puckett hit 2 homers, his 4th and 5th of the season, and drove in 4 of the 6 Mudcat runs.  Mike Costanzo was 3-for-4 and drove in the other 2.  James Avery got the start and gave up 4 runs in 6, but the bullpen was strong with Jeff Jeffords, Brad Boxberger, and Nick Christiani all contributing hitless innings to nail down the win.  Up next: Dallas Buck takes the hill against Chattanooga at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield lost 9-3 to Visalia.  Curtis Partch got the start gave up 8 runs (5 earned) in 5 innings pitched, and the offense wasn't much better.  Josh Fellhauer drove in 2 runs with a double, one of only 3 hits produced by the Blaze all evening.  Ouch.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran takes on Visalia at 10:15.
  • Dayton won 3-1 on another great start by Daniel Corcino.  Corcino went 5 innings and gave up 1 run (unearned) and struck out 7 more to bring his season total to 21 (tied for 5th in the league).  Justin Braun, Drew Hayes, and Blaine Howell combined for 4 innings of 1-hit scoreless relief.  Juan Duran hit a 2-run shot for his second homer of the year, and that was more than enough.  Up next: Dragons take on the West Michigan Whitecaps at 7, with Tanner Robles taking the mound.
