Farmers Only: We're All Going Streaking!

  • Louisville had an off day on Thursday. Jeff Francis (1-2, 4.09 ERA) takes the bump for the Bats tonight at 7:15pm.
  • Pensacola put a hurtin' on the Jacksonville Suns today, winning 9-3. Aside from Clayton Tanner getting 2 innings of scoreless work in, it was old-timers day on the mound. Tim Gustafson got the start and let in 3 runs (2 earned) over 3 IP, Mark Serrano followed him for three innings, and the bane of auto-correct Wirfin Obispo shut it down the 9th. Hank-Rod kept his hot start going, and had a nice night at the dish, knocking 4 singles in 5 ABs with an RBI. He is now OPS-ing over .750 with a .322 BA, it would be nice if he could develop a little more pop if he wants a shot at 3B in the big leagues, but at every level he has played at, the diminutive Venezuelan has flat-out hit. Mariekson Gregorius had a rare 0-fer, but did manage to get on base with a walk. Up Next: The Wahoos and Suns face off again at 6:05pm.
  • Bakersfield won their tenth straight game last night, beating the Stockton Ports 8-1. This is by far the most fun team to watch in the Reds minor league system right now. Billy Hamilton (once again) stole the show last night going 3-4 with 4 (!!!) stolen bases and an RBI. I have been less bullish than most on Mr. Quix, but what he has been doing so far this year has been mighty impressive. Herr Lutz had a 2-4 night with a dinger and a triple. If that's not enough to get you excited, Tony Cingrani did his thing again last night; 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 8 K. The fact that he skipped Dayton altogether and is pitching in the Cali league makes his 0.39 ERA and 10.96 K/9 even more inspiring. Up Next: The Blaze go for their 11th straight win tonight against the Modesto Nuts at 10:05pm.
  • Dayton won a thriller in front of 1,697 rabid fans, beating the Timber Rattlers 3-1 in 10 innings. The Justice League of France did work, pitching 6 innings of 1-run ball where he fanned 8 and walked none. Kyle McMyne poached the win, throwing two scoreless innings. McMyne is off to a great start - in his first 10.2 IP, he is sporting a Chapmanesque 13/1 K/BB. A guy I have been keeping my eye on, Ryan Wright continues to impress (.808 OPS). He went 2-5 with a 10th inning RBI. Up Next: The Snakes and Dragons wrap up their series at Miller Park tonight at 8:05pm.
