Farmers Only: I'm glad Walt didn't trade any of these guys, because they're more interesting than the Reds


  • Louisville lost a tough one 4-3.  They carried a lead into the 9th but Jordan Smith walked 3 and gave up 2 runs to take the loss.  Call him up to the Reds!  Edinson Volquez was solid, throwing 7 innings, giving up 2 runs (solo homers).  He struck out 6 and walked 2.  Brad Boxberger struck out 1 in a scoreless inning of relief.  Denis Phipps was 3-4 and both Daniel Dorn and Chris Valaika homered.  Up Next: Scott Carroll gets the 12:05 start.
  • Carolina rolled 13-1.  Pedro Villareal threw 6 innings of 1 run ball.  Neftali Soto hit 2 homers, his 21st and 22nd of the year.  The 22 year old Soto was 4-6 overall and is now hitting .281/.336/.596 with 22 homers in just 287 at bats.  That's a ridiculous pace of homers.  For some perspective, noted power-monger Juan Francisco hit 27 as a 22 year 529 at bats.  Yasmani Grandal also homered, his 3rd in Carolina.  Up Next: Brandon Hynick starts at 7:43
  • Bakersfield won 4-3.  Dayne Read was 3-4 with a double, Ryan LaMarre was 2-3 with a walk and his 39th SB, and Alex Buchholz had 2 hits. JC Sulbaran threw 7 strong innings, giving up 2 ER while striking out 10.  Up Next: Curtis Partch takes the hill at 10:45.
  • Dayton mounted a furious comeback, scoring 6 runs in the 9th, but ultimately lost 8-6.  A bunch of players had 1 hit each.  Almost all of them came in the 9th.  Up Next: Tanner Robles starts at 7:00.
  • Billings lost 10-8.  Kyle Waldrop was 3-4 with a double, Junior Arias was 2-3 with a double and triple, and a bunch of other guys had single hits.  Up Next; 9:05 game. Not sure who's starting.
  • AZL Reds won 8-4.  There were about a million hits in this game, all by guys I still don't know who they are.  This year's 2nd round pick Gabriel Rosa, and one of BK's stale prospects, walked twice. So there's that. Up Next: The team is off tonight.
