Farmers Only: A good(?) start for Edinson Volquez

  • Louisville won 5-1. In his second start since being demoted, Edinson Volquez threw 6.2 IP and gave up just 1 run. However, he only struck out 2 and walked 4.  Only 69 of his 112 pitches were strikes. I have a feeling that outing would've gone a lot differently had he been facing major league hitters.  Juan Francisco was 2-4 with a homer, Devin Mesoraco walked twice, and Kris Negron homered.  Yonder Alonso hit his 6th homer, a 3 run shot that put the game on ice.  Up Next: New Bat Brandon Hynick makes the start at 7:05.
  • Carolina lost 4-3James Avery struck out 6 in 5 IP, even though he allowed 4 runs.  He also was 2-2 at the plate.  Jake Kahaulelio and Denis Phipps also had 2 hits each. Up Next: Tim Gustafson makes the start at 7:05.
  • Bakersfield lost 7-3. Henry Rodriguez hit his 7th homer of the year.  Up Next: Tim Crabbe starts at 10:05
  • Dayton won 4-2Josh Smith had another solid start, lasting 6 innings and giving up 2 runs while striking out 4.  Dominic D'Anna was 2-4 with 2 doubles, Billy Hamilton was 2-4 with a triple and another SB, and Donald Lutz was 2-4.  Yorman Rodriguez tripled and walked.  Up Next: Daniel Corcino takes the hill at 7:00.
