Louisville lost what seems like 7,429th one-run game, 5-4 to Columbus in 10. Xavier "University" Paul (4-5) and Corky "Fu King" Miller (2-3) combined for 6 of the Bats' 8 hits. Though Neftali Soto did have a 2-run homer and is still in AAA. Tim Gustafson pitched a scoreless half-game+, giving up just 2 hits and 3 walks in his 5.1 IP. Sadly, Donnie Joseph blew his first save of the year, and Kanekoa Texeira took the loss. Up next: It says Tim Gustafson is set to pitch, but I highly doubt that, since he was moved up a day to presumably take Todd Redmond's spot. So someone will go against Columbus at 7:05.
- Pensacola also lost 5-4 in 10, to Jacksonville. Donald Lutz pilsner'd his first stein in AA, a solo job in the second inning. David Vidal followed suit in the 5th, and Ryan LaMarre and Miguel Rojas each had two hits, but the pen couldn't hold the lead. Mark Serrano was the hard-luck loser, giving up the winning, unearned run in the tenth. Billy Hamilton stole a base, and water is wet. Up next: Off day, kiddos!
- Bakersfield did some losing of their own, falling 4-2 to the High Desert Mavericks in the normal amount of innings. They were 4-hit, though one of those was a 4-bagger, as Travis Mattair antlered one to left to score himself and Dominic "the Donkey" D'Anna. Tanner Robles started and was OK, and Jamie "Sweaty" Walczak gave up an unearned run in his hitless 1.1 innings of relief. Up next: Chad Rogers (5-3, 2.64) vs. High Desert at 7:05 left time.
Dayton was off. Up next: Stalin Gerson (4-6, 4.42) faces Clinton at 7.
- Billings was bipolar in splitting a doubleheader against Grand Junction. The Mustangs stampeded the G.J. Rockies in game 1, winning 15-2. Sean Casey hit a two-run bomb in his first professional at-bat on his road to an MLB return. That last sentence was totally made up, and designed to make all of you do this. Sean Casey is not, as far as I know, planning a return to baseball. However, Ismael Guillon snagged the win with 5 solid innings, and a combination of 6 Rockie errors and wangers from Wagner Gomez, Robert Ramirez, and Seth Mejias-Brean led to the win. Game 2 was not so smooth, as they were blanked 6-0. Ol' Sethy Two-Names had a hit for each side of his hypenated surname, and Jeff Gelalich had a double. Otherwise, pretty meh. Sal Romano got knocked around on the mound. Up next: Off day! Yeehaw!
- The AZL Reds lost to the AZL Angels, 4-2. Tanner Rahier went 2-4 with a double and a run scored, and Humberto Valor stole a base, which makes me think his last name is a lie. Lots of errors, rookie pitching, and not a lot of offense in this one. Up next: Off day for the AZL-iens.
