Farmers Only: Ich Liebe Dich, Herr Lutz

  • Louisville was the only team in the Reds organization to lose on Monday. Falling to the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs 7-6 in 13 innings. It was an all hands on deck affair for the Bats, as 19 different players got in on the action. Chad Reineke got beat like a day-old Kroger steak, giving up 6 runs in 4 innings. Scrabbles' man-crush Josh Judy pitched two scoreless innings, with 4 Ks and a BB. Danny Dorn made the most of his 1 hit in 6 ABs, jacking a 3-run dinger in the 5th inning. Up Next: The Bats wrap up their series against the Iron Pigs with baseball and breakfast at 10:35am today. No starters have been announced.
  • Pensacola beat the Jacksonville Suns 4-1. Hacksaw Tim Crabbe had a great game, throwing 6 scoreless innings with 6 Ks and 2 BBs, lowering his ERA to 3.69. Crabbe, who BA says has the best slider in the system, has been solid since the start of last season where he posted a 3.45 ERA across two levels. The offense was provided almost solely by Who's Yordanys Perez, who went 3-4 with a donger and 3 RBIs. Donnie Joseph got his 10th save throwing a perfect 9th, and striking out 2 batters. Up Next: Pensacola is off today. They head back home to take on the Junior Braves on Wednesday at 7pm.
  • Bakersfield ramrod'd the Visalia Rawhide, and won 6-4. The Blaze were sitting pretty with a 4-0 lead heading into the 8th inning, on the heels of a great start by Chad Rogers who pitched 7 scoreless innings. And then Daniel Wolford came in and promptly squandered the lead, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) in the 8th. But, with two outs in the top of the 9th, Donald Lutz and Travis Mattair honked back to back wangers to regain the lead. Brian Pearl shut the Rawhide down in order in the home half of the 9th to get the save. Up Next: The Blaze continue their series in Visalia, as Josh "Boring Name" Smith (1-4, 5.09 ERA) takes the mound for the Blaze at 10:00pm.
  • Dayton actually won a game (!!!), beating the Great Lakes Loons 7-6. The recently demoted Kurtis Muller went 3-4 with a ding dong and 2 RBIs in his first game of the year with the Dragons. Ryan Wright continues to be one of the lone bright spots in Dayton, going 2-2 with a double, an walk and a ROE. Stalin Gerson pitched to the score, scattering 3 runs over 6 innings. Kyle McMyne had a rare rough outing, walking two and giving up two runs without recording an out. Up Next: The entire Midwest League has the day off today. The Dragons head to Lancaster to face the JetHawks on Wednesday at 7:00pm. Jacob "Boring Name" Johnson (0-0, 1.80 ERA) gets the start.
