Farmers Only: Tony Cingrani is a Bad Mother... (Shut Your Mouth!)

  • Louisville got beat 7-5 by the Bull Durhams. Jeff Francis did not help his cause in the replace Mike Leake in the rotation sweepstakes, by throwing 6.1 innings of 5-run ball. Danny Dorn continued his struggles, going 0-4 yesterday, lowering his average to .188. Neftali Soto was one strikeout short of a golden sombrero with his 1-4, 3 K day at the plate. Miguel Rojas looked good in his first game in Louisville, taking over for the recently befallen Paul Bunjanish. Bill "Over the" Rhinehart went 2-4 and hit his first wanger of the year. Up Next: Sean Gallagher (1-2, 7.36 ERA) will face off against the Bulls tonight at 7:05pm.
  • Pensacola got rained out, pushing Super Hero Night back a day. They are playing a double-header today starting at 6pm, both games will be 7-inning affairs. Up Next: Pedro Villarreal will get the start in game one (presumably).
  • Bakersfield won 7-2 against the Lancaster JetHawks. Billy Hamilton was the only member of the Blaze to go hitless, but he still managed to steal his 30th (!) base of the season. Everybody's favorite Knockwurst went yard, as did the 2nd best player in the system named Devin. Tony "BMF" Cingrani is being overshadowed by his teammate Billy the Kid. Last night he had another ho-hum start; throwing 5 innings of 3-hit, 0-run, 9-K, 1-BB baseball. His ERA right now is 0.32 (!) in the Cali League. Cingrani might have me more excited than any other prospect in the system. I know it's a small sample size and all, but he's been damn near unhittable in the first 74.1 IP of his professional career. With his advanced age (23), there is a good chance that he may get the call-up in the very near future. Up Next: Kyle Lotzkar (3-0, 1.25 ERA) takes the hill against the JetHawks at 10:05pm.
  • Dayton lost to the Lake Couny Captains 5-3. La Justice Française gave up 5 runs (4 earned) in 5 IP, with 10 hits and a walk. Brooks Picknard and Jimmy Moran combined for 4 innings of scoreless, 6-strikeout ball. The pride of the 'ville, Ryan Wright went 2-4 with a dinger, a triple, and 2 RBIs. Up Next: The awesomely named Radhames Quezada (0-3, 2.88 ERA) gets the start at 7pm.
