Farmers Only: I think Bakersfield might be a good hitting environment


  • Louisville lost on a walkoff hit for the second straight day. Score was 4-3 (for the second straight day).  The Bats entered the 9th leading 3-2 but Carlos Fisher served up a 2 run bomb to lose it.  Chris Valaika, Jeremy Hermida, and Devin Mesoraco each had 2 hits.  Hermida's 2 hits were both homers.  Up Next: The team is off today.
  • Carolina lost 8-1.  This one featured plenty of bad hitting and pitching by the good guys. Eric Campbell was 3-4 with 2 doubles.  Up Next: Another popular 7:43 start time. 
  • Bakersfield got their swing on, winning 20-7.  With the exception of Stephen Hunt (who still managed to walk 3 times), every single position player had a hit.  Five different players had 3 hits, and Alex Buccholz went 4-5 with a homer and a walk.  Ryan LaMarre hit his 4th homer of the year and stole his 40th base.  His OPS is up to .757 after a disappointing first half. Up Next: Tim Crabbe starts at 10:45.
  • Dayton lost 9-6.  Tanner Robles had another rough start, and the guys backing him up were no better.  Ronald Torreyes was 2-3 with a walk.  He now has 9 walks to only 10 strikeouts on the year.  Donald Lutz was 2-4, and David Vidal hit his 15th homer.  Up Next:  Someone starts at 7:00.
  • Billings won 7-4.  Sean Buckley had a hit and a walk, Kyle Waldrop doubled, and Robert Maddox had 2 hits.
  • AZL Reds were off.  They resume today at 2.
