Farmers Only: I wish I lived in Dayton!

Well, not really.  Not at all, actually.  But the Dragons are probably the most exciting and interesting team in the Reds entire system right now, big leagues included.  I wish I could watch them play in person.

  • Louisville is flat out feeling the effects of losing so many players in the last month.  Yesterday they lost 7-3Carlos Fisher struck out 4 in 2 shutout innings of relief.  Devin Mesoraco was 2-4, raising his OPS on the year to .879.  If and when a Ramon Hernandez trade occurs, I'd say Devin is ready.  Dave Sappelt was 2-3.  Up Next: Travis Wood takes the hill at 7:05.
  • Carolina lost a heartbreaker, 6-5.  The Mudcats entered the 9th leading 5-3 but Chris Mobley gave up 3 runs in the inning to take the loss.  Neftali Soto was 2-4 with his 19th homer of the season.  Yasmani Grandal was 1-4 with a homer and a walk.  Josh Fellhauer, recently promoted from Bakersfield, was 3-4. Up Next: Someone will start at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield lost 5-1.  Every starter but one had 1 hit.  One guy had 2.  Bleh. Up Next: Tim Crabbe gets the 10:05 start.
  • Dayton won 6-1Billy Hamilton had 2 hits, including a triple, and stole his 75th base.  Jaren Matthews had 2 hits, including a double, and David Vidal was 3-4 with 2 homers, giving him 13 on the season.  Vidal started off a bit slow, but he has been scorching in June and July.  He's a great pure hitter, and definitely someone to keep an eye on moving forward.  Up Next: Tanner Robles is back in Dayton, and gets the 7:00 start.
  • Both Billings and AZL Reds were off.  They both play today.
