Farmers Only: Bonus baseball for Louisville!

  • Louisville lost a marathon game to Rochester 7-6 in 18 innings, to tie a club record.  Let's start with the offense.  Yonder Alonso led off in this one (!) and went 3-for-8 with 2 doubles, and Daniel Dorn led the charge with a 4-for-8 night.  Jeremy Hermida was 3-for-6 with 2 walks, and Juan Francisco was 2-for-6 with a double and an RBI in his rehab start.  The only Bat starter to not get a hit in this one was Devin Mesoraco, who went 0-for-8.  Dontrelle Willis got the start, going 5 2/3 innings and giving up 5 runs (3 earned).  Jerry Gil pitched next and pitched a scoreless 1 1/3.  After Louisville took the lead in the top of the 8th, Carlos Fisher gave up a run in his first inning of two, to leave the score knotted at 6.  From there, David Johnson, Jeremy Horst, and Joseph Krebs pitched 8 shutout innings of relief.  Daniel Ray Herrera came out for the 18th and retired the first two batters quickly, but a flare shot, two infield hits, and another base hit gave the Red Wings the walk-off victory.  Up next: The depleted Bats will take on Rochester again, with Scott Carroll taking the hill at 7:05.
  • Carolina beat Birmingham 8-7.  Quintin Berry led the team with 2 hits, and somehow the Mudcats scored 8 runs on 6 hits overall, with Felix Perez and Jake Kahaulelio driving in 2 runs each.  Matt Klinker gave up 5 runs in 5 innings in his start, and the bullpen really stepped it up in the later innings, with James Adkins, Nick Christiani, and Donnie Joseph combining for 3 shutout innings to secure the win.  Up next: Daryl Thompson takes the hill against Birmingham at 8:05.
  • Bakersfield had an off day yesterday.  They'll take on Visalia at 10.
  • Dayton lost 5-4 to West Michigan.  Josh Smith had a kind of rough outing, giving up 4 runs in 3 2/3 innings, although 2 of them were unearned.  David Vidal and Dominic D'Anna had two hits each, with the latter hitting his 2nd homer of the season.  Billy Hamilton was 0-for-5 with 3 strikeouts, but still managed to steal his 23rd bag of the season.  Up next: Daniel Corcino leads the bounce-back effort against Lake County at 7.
