Farmers Only: Carolina hits lots of homers to sweep their doubleheader

  • Louisville is on their all-star break.  Their ASG is Wednesday.
  • Carolina won both games of their doubleheader, 6-2 and 6-2.  Nope, that's not a typo.  James Avery started the first game and went 5 2/3 innings of 2-run ball, and Tim Gustafson cleaned it up to get his first save.  Denis Phipps, David Cook, and Neftali Soto all homered for the Mudcats.  In the second game, Brandon Hynick started and gave up 2 runs in 5 1/3 innings.  Phipps homered in the second game too, as did Quintin Berry.  Up next: Off day today.
  • Bakersfield was off.  They'll take on Stockton at 10:45 tonight, starter is TBA.
  • Dayton were hard luck losers 3-2 to South Bend in a rain-shortened 6 innings.  Josh Smith gave up 3 runs in the 6th before the delay to earn the loss, despite striking out 6 in that span.  Billy Hamilton had a single, stole 2nd and 3rd, and scored a run, and is now at 66 SB on the year.  Up next: Off day today.
  • Billings beat Missoula 5-2.  Tony Cingrani got the start and retired all 8 batters he faced, striking out 4 of them before leaving the game.  Not sure if it was a pitch count or something, but it might be something to keep an eye on.  Devin Lohman was 3-for-5 with 2 doubles.  Up next: Off day today.
  • The AZL Reds beat the AZL Dodgers 7-2.  Every starter had a hit, with Spencer Dickinson, Jon Matthews, and Juan Morrillo contributing 2 each.  Matt Fairel and Jordan Smith each pitched 2 shutout innings on rehab outings before Eliezer Beard pitched the final 5 innings, giving up 2 runs and striking out 10.  Up next: Off day.
