Farmers Only: Another offensive explosion in California

  • Louisville had the night off.  Tonight they play at 7:05, and Scott Carroll gets the start.
  • Carolina lost 8-1Daryl Thompson had a bit of an unlucky start.  He lasted 5.2 innings and struck out 7.  He allowed 4 runs, but just one was earned as the Mudcats committed a whopping 4 errors.  Nick Christiani added to the pain with his first bad outing of the year.  He only went 1/3 of an inning and gave up 4 runs.  Offensively the situation was just as bad as the team only mustered 5 hits.  Two were by recent acquisition Quintin Berry, who went 2-3 with a walk. Up Next: Travis Webb gets the start at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield poured on the hits again, beating Lake Elsinore 11-6.  Every starter had at least 1 hit, and only two starters failed to record multiple hits.  Still, in another oddity, the team racked up 19 hits but only 3 were for extra bases--all doubles.  That's what you call BABIPing the other team to death.  The star of the show was Ryan LaMarre who went 4-5 with a stolen base.  Up Next: Curtis Partch takes the hill at 10:05
  • Dayton lost 4-1Josh Smith wins the award for oddest line of the day: 5 IP, 8 K, 1 BB, 9 H, 3 ER.  That's also what you call getting BABIP'd to death.  The opposing team was 8-15 on balls in play against him.  This offensive performance was sort of Bakersfield-lite.  All starters but 3 got a hit, but no one got multiple hits, and there was only 1 XBH.  Billy Hamilton reached three times (1-2, 2 BB) and stole his 20th base of the year.  Up Next: Daniel Corcino starts at 7:00.
