Farmers Only: Is Yonder putting himself in the LF conversation?

  • Louisville's bats woke up as they killed Rochester 7-3.  Yonder Alonso led the way with a 3-for-5 night, including his 4th homer of the year.  He was only a single short of hitting for the cycle.  Don't look now, but Alonso's OPS is at .892, which is better than any LF the Reds have thrown out there this season.  How much longer can they keep him at 4th on the depth chart?  Not to be outdone, Devin Mesoraco slugged his 4th homer of the year as well.  Daniel Dorn, Jeremy Hermida, and Zack Cozart all added two hits apeice.  Chad Reineke pitched well, giving up 3 runs in 6 innings, and Carlos Fisher and Daniel Ray Herrera pitched 3 shutout innings of relief to nail down the win.  Up next: Tom Cochran takes on Rochester today at 12:05.
  • Carolina lost to Birmingham 5-2.  Kyle McCulloch got the start, and gave up 5 runs in only two innings.  Travis Webb pitched well out of the bullpen, giving up 3 hits and no runs in 5 relief innings, while striking out 9.  David Cook provided most of the offense for the Mudcats, going 2-for-4 with a homer.  Up next: James Avery takes the mound as the Mudcats take on Bimingham again, tonight at 8:05.
  • Bakersfield lost to Visalia 17-8.  Curtis Partch took the brunt of this one for the pitching staff, giving up 10 runs and not making it out of the 3rd inning.  Fortunately, there were some good spots for the offense here, as Ryan LaMarre and Henry Rodriguez had 3-hit nights, and Rodriguez, Eric Campbell. and Yasmani Grandal all homered for the Blaze.  Up next: J.C. Sulbaran takes on Visalia at 10.
  • Dayton beat Lake County 3-1.  Daniel Tuttle was outstanding, pitching 6 shutout innings and striking out 7.  Donald Lutz led the way on offense, going 2-for-4 with his 6th and 7th home runs of the year.  Up next: Tanner Robles takes on Lake County tonight at 7.
