Louisville was shut out 4-0 by Fu-Te Ni and the To-Le Do Mud Hens. Newly be-Batted Luis Atilano was drilled in 2.1 innings of work, giving up all 4 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks. Kanekoa Texeira, Carlos Fisher, and Scott Carroll pitched the remainder of the game yielding a combined 3 hits, 4 walks, and 6 Ks among them. The few Bats who brought their bats are all members of the No Upside Club, as Chris Valaika and Paul Janish both went 2-4. Neftali Soto did draw two walks, which is a good sign. I don't know why I'm even bothering to report this since BubbaFan has already done so in the Recap thread... Next up: Highly touted prospect TBD takes on Toledo tomorrow at 6:30.
Pensacola lost 3-2 to Mobile on a walk off sacrifice foul out (wtf) by presumed Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce employee Ed Easley. Every Wahoo got a hit, save our beloved DiDi, who went 0 for 5. Cody Puckett was the only player with multiple hits (2 for 4), though future Hall of Famer Mike Costanzo did hit a two-run home run to tie the game in the sixth. Curtis "Beer Me, I'm" Partch was skunked for 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings, though he seemed to mitigate the damage well enough by only giving up 2 runs, despite a WHIP over 3. Drew Hayes got the loss. Next up: Lil Cueto takes on Mobile at 8:05.
- Bakersfield was improbably rained out, making them the only minor league affiliate scheduled to play a game that didn't lose. They will play at San Jose tomorrow at 10:00 ET.
- Dayton was screwed by the Lugnuts of Lansing for the third straight game, losing 7-4. "Scales of" Justice French followed up a filthy first outing with a stinky second outing, surrendering 5 runs (4 earned) on 5 hits over 4 innings of work. After striking out 8 in his first start, he only managed 2 Ks to go along with 2 walks. Yovan Gonzalez went 3-4 with a two-run homer, and Steven Selsky was the only other dragon with an extra-base hit (a double) while going 2-4. Next up: Radhames Quezada takes on South Bend at 7:05.
