Farmers Only: Where Klinkermania outshined Chapmania last night

  • Louisville was off.  They'll take on Toledo at 7:05, starting pitcher is TBA.
  • Carolina won 7-0 against Jackson.  Aroldis Chapman pitched an inning to start this game on rehab, and only walked one of the 4 hitters he faced, striking out 2 in the process.  It did take him 28 pitches in the process, and only 18 were strikes, but this looks like a step in the right direction.  Not to be outdone, Matt Klinker got the "relief start" and pitched 6 shutout innings, only giving up 3 hits.  He did walk 3, but it's definitely a solid start that hopefully he can build on.  James Adkins and Donnie Joseph pitched perfect innings in relief to nail down the shutout.  On offense, Felix Perez and Denis Phipps had multi-hit games, while Quintin Berry, Neftali Soto, and Eric Campbell all went deep for the Mudcats.  Up next: Pedro Villarreal takes on Jackson at 8:05.
  • Bakersfield lost to San Jose 4-1 on a rare offensive sputter.  Ryan LaMarre had 2 of the Blaze's 6 hits, and Mark Serrano actually had a pretty good start, giving up 3 runs in 7 innings of work.  Up next: The Blaze start a new series against Visalia at 10, starter has not been announced.
  • Dayton lost a 1-0 pitchers duel to Fort Wayne.  Daniel Corcino pitched brilliantly, pitching 6 shutout innings with 5 strikeouts and no walks.  Ezequiel Infante was able to make it through a scoreless 7th before Chad (sharkbite guy) Rogers gave up the game's only run in the 8th.  Donald Lutz and Devin Lohman were both 2-for-4, and in a turn of events that should surprise no one, Billy Hamilton was 0-for-3 with his 53rd stolen base of the year.  Up next: Daniel Tuttle gets the ball against Fort Wayne at 7:05.
