Louisville split a double header, winning the first game 5-0 and losing the second, 6-2. Dontrelle Willis was back on the mound in the first game and looked good, throwing 4.2 shutout innings, striking out 7 and walking 3. I'd expect to see him with the Reds soon. The second game was marked by uniformly bad pitching. Now, instead of giving you player lines from individual games, I shall highlight some combined lines from the night, as well as those players' updated OPSes. Zack Cozart: 5-7, HR. .836 OPS. Devin Mesoraco: 3-7, HR. .959 OPS. You're right, Dusty. No way these guys could hit in the bigs. In less snarky news, Yonder Alonso hit the wall chasing a fly ball last night and was shaken up. He finished the inning but then left the game. Hopefully he is OK. Up Next: Tom Cochran takes the hill at 7:00
Carolina mounted a furious comeback, scoring 6 runs over their final 3 innings and winning, 6-5. Felix Perez was 2-4 with a triple and Mike Costanzo homered. Donnie Joseph pitched a shutout inning of relief. Up Next: James Avery toes the rubber at 7:15.
- Bakersfield won 6-3. JC Sulbaran had a very Sulbaran-y start, only lasting 5.1 IP despite allowing just 2 runs. He allowed 5 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5. The Bakersfield offense was in vintage form as well, as every starter but one reached base safely, and 5 of the 9 had exactly 1 hit and 1 walk. Up Next: Lance Janke eyes the prize at 10:30.
- Dayton was off. Up Next: Daniel Renken stares down the opposition at 8:00.
