Farmers Only: Top prospects are heating up

  • Louisville lost 6-4. Travis Wood struggled a bit, again.  He gave up 4 runs on 9 hits and a walk in just 5 innings. I wish they would hurry up and trade him straight up for Ubaldo JimenezYonder Alonso was 2-5 with a double, Todd Frazier and Mike Costanzo also doubled, and Devin Mesoraco walked twice.  Up Next: Daryl Thompson gets the start at 7:15.
  • Carolina lost 10-7Donnie Joseph pitched a scoreless 9th inning. Lots of multi-hit games in this one, most notably by Neftali Soto, who was 2-5 with his 16th homer of the year.  He has homered 5 times in his last 10 games, and is now slugging .591 on the year.  Henry Rodriguez also had 2 hits and a walk.  Up Next: Matt Klinker takes the hill, starting at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield lost 6-1.  The offense continues to be MIA for the Blaze, as the entire team managed just 4 hits and no walks.  Brodie Greene hit his 5th homer for the team's lone run.  Up Next: Curtis Partch starts at 10:45.
  • Dayton played a seesaw game, finally prevailing 12-8.  Lots of good performances in this one. Ronald Torreyes was 3-5 with a double and triple, Yorman Rodriguez was 3-4 with 2 walks(!) and his 7th home run, Billy Hamilton was 2-5 with a walk, David Vidal doubled twice, and Tucker Barnhart had 2 hits and 2 walks.  Sheesh.  This is going to be a fun team to watch for the rest of the season.  On a down note, Daniel Corcino had his second straight rough start, giving up 5 runs in 5 IP on 7 hits and 2 walks.  On the plus side, he did strike out 6.  Up Next: Daniel Renken starts at 8:00.
  • Billings was postponed. They will play a double header today.
  • AZL Reds won 6-2.  The Awesome Name Trifecta of Justice French, Lucas O'Rear, and Jim Moran combined to throw 8 innings of 2 run baseball.  Brennan May and Wagner Gomez each had 2 hits, and this year's 2nd round pick, Gabriel Rosa, homered in his first ever professional game.  Up Next: Someone gets the start at 10:00.
