Farmers Only: Is the Punxsutawney Kid's farewell tour coming to close?

  • Louisville beat Toledo 10-3 behind a fantastic night for Devin Mesoraco.  He was 4-for-4 with 5 RBI, and hit a home run in the 5th inning of this game that traveled 471 feet.  That's farther than any Reds player has hit a homer this year, and only 6 in the entire big leagues this year went farther than that.  He followed that up with another homer, his 15th of the year.  Get him up here, Walt.  Scott Carroll started and went 5 2/3 innings, giving up 3 runs, and Daniel Dorn and Mike Costanzo homered as well.  Up next: Daryl Thompson takes on Lehigh Valley at 7:05.
  • Carolina beat Jacksonville 5-2.  Neftali Soto jacked his 27th homer of the year, and Justin Lehr gave up 1 ER in 7 innings to get the win.  Up next: Pedro Villarreal takes on the Suns at 7:15.
  • Bakersfield lost 4-2 to Rancho Cucamonga.  J.C. Sulbaran only went 5 innings, giving up 2 runs with 5 strikeouts.  Chris Manno had another scoreless inning (that's 12 1/3 now), and Chris Richburg and Jorge Jimenez had 2 hits each.  Up next: Dan Renken takes the mound against the topically-named Quakes at 10:05.
  • Dayton beat Lansing 6-1.  Billy Hamilton was 4-for-5 with a RBI and his 90th and 91st stolen bases of the year.  He's getting there, folks.  Josh Smith had another good start, going 6 innings and giving up 1 run and striking out 8.  Up next: Mitch Clarke takes on Great Lakes at 7:05.
  • Billings beat Idaho Falls 5-3.  Juan Perez and Ryan Wright homered and Kyle Waldrop was 2-for-4 with 2 RBI.  Ismael Guillon got the start, and gave up 2 runs in 5 2/3 innings before El'Hajj Muhammad came in and did work, giving up no runs in his 2 innings.  Up next: Kyle McMyne takes on Idaho Falls at 9:05.
  • The AZL Reds killed the AZL Padres 14-6.  Joel Bender had an up and down start, going 6 2/3 innings, but giving up 12 hits and 6 runs (but only 3 of them earned) with 6 strikeouts.  5 A-Reds had 2 hit games, with Carlos Sanchez leading the way with 4 RBI.  Up next: AZL Dodgers at 2.
