- Louisville was off yesterday, but a couple of our guys played in the AAA All-Star game. Although Zack Cozart was named to the team, he had "other obligations" that prevented him from playing. Jeremy Hermida hit 3rd for the IL and singled in 3 at-bats, and Devin Mesoraco batted 5th and singled in 2 at-bats. Yonder Alonso came in as a substitute (in LF) and walked in his only time up. Up next: The Bats resume tonight against Charlotte at 7:15.
- Carolina beat Jackson 2-1. The Cats only got 3 hits on the day, but one was a homer from Felix Perez and that was all they needed. Kyle McCulloch got the start and pitched well, giving up 1 run in 6 1/3 innings, and Donnie Joseph got two outs without giving up any runs. Up next: Pedro Villarreal takes on the Generals at 7:15.
- Bakersfield lost 2-1 behind a great start by Josh Ravin. He went 6 innings and gave up 1 run on 3 hits and struck out 8, but got the loss. Come on, Blaze offense! Ravin's now 1-7 on the season, and mostly deservedly so, but it's gotta be frustrating to see your first good start in a long while go unrewarded. Stephen Hunt was 2-for-3 to lead the stagnant offense. Up next: Mark Serrano tries his luck against Stockton at 10:45.
- Dayton lost 7-5 to the Quad Cities. Stalin Gerson and Chad Rogers combined for 7 runs in 6 innings. Yorman Rodriguez and Billy Hamilton had two hits each, as did D'Dominic D'Anna, who hit his 6th homer of the year. Up next: Daniel Corcino gets the start at 8.
- Billings let Orem come back from a 8-3 deficit to win 10-8 in extra innings. Radhames Quezada went 5 innings and gave up 1 run while striking out 10, and the offense put up some gaudy numbers to back him up. Juan Silva went 5-for-5 with a homer and 3 RBI, and Robert Maddox wasn't far behind with a 4-for-6 night with a homer and 4 RBI. Devin Lohman also hit his 4th homer of the year. Up next: Mitchell Clarke takes on the Owlz at 9:05.
- The AZL Reds were off. They'll take on the AZL Tribe at 10.
