Farmers Only: Can nobody in this organization win a game?

  • In an odd turn of major/minor league parity, Louisville lost 3-1 to Toledo. Chris Valaika was 2-for-4 with an RBI, and Jeff Francis struck out 9 in his 5 innings of work, giving up 2 runs. Ron Mahay and Josh Judy pitched scoreless innings in relief. Up next: Bats take on Toledo at 6:30, no starter has been announced yet.
  • Pensacola lost 3-2 to top prospect Trevor Bauer and Mobile. Pedro Villarreal had a good start, pitching 6 innings of 3 run (1 ER) ball, with 5 strikeouts and no walks. Henry Rodriguez went 2-for-4, but was the only bright spot on a stagnant offense that struck out 11 times against Bauer and 14 times overall. Up next: Curtis Partch and the Wahoos are back at it against the BayBears at 8:05 tonight.
  • Bakersfield blew two leads to lose 10-9 to Stockton. They had a 7-0 lead in the first 4 innings, but ended up giving up 8 runs in the 6th and 7th, as starter Daniel Renken and Jamie Walzcak got torched. They scored 2 in the 8th to take the lead, but Brian Pearl blew the save in the 9th. Billy Hamilton was 2-for-5 with 3 RBI, and his 4th and 5th (!) stolen bases of the year, and Travis (Moose) Mattair went 2-for-4 with his 2nd homer. Up next: They'll resume the series at 3:00 ET, with the starter yet to be announced.
  • Dayton got spanked by Lansing 6-2. Carlos Gonzalez gave up 4 runs and didn't make it out of the 5th inning, but Daniel Jensen pitched 2 innings of shutout relief. The boys had 3 hits total on the night, with Danny Vicioso driving in the Dragons' only run. Theo Bowe stole his 3rd base of the year, so despite his bet with B-Ham as to who can steal the most bases this year, he is still behind. (This is an actual thing on twitter, I swear.) Up next: Justice French rights the ship tonight at 7.
