Farmers Only: One Hundred Stolen Bases is a Lot Of Stolen Bases

  • Louisville lost 6-4 in a 14-inning titanic struggle. This was an all hands on deck affair for both teams, as 36 different players saw the field in last night's 4 hour 46 minute game. Pedro Villa(shit just got)real started for the Bats and allowed 3 runs, with only one earned. All four of Louisville's runs came via wangers honked, with Denis Phipps, Neftali Soto, and Blastin' Billy Rhinehart all going deep into the night. Sister Christiani got tagged with the loss after giving up two runs before recording an out in the top of the 14th. Up Next: The Bats take on the Indians again tonight at 7:05 ET. The owner of the most ridiculous Google bio pic in the organization, Sean Gallagher (6-5, 5.20 ERA), gets the start.
  • Pensacola blanked the Jacksonville Suns 2-0. Tony Cingrani followed up his 15 K outing with another gem, going 6.2 innings with 0 runs, 2 hits, 7 K, and 4 BBs. He has not allowed a run in his last 14.2 innings pitched lowering his ERA to 1.36 for the year. With the trade deadline approaching soon, expect to see Cingrani's name to come up a lot in the next month or so. Another possible trade chip, Didi Gregorius, was the only Wahoo to have an XBH, going 1-4 with a double and an RBI. Up Next: Kyle Lotzkar (4-3, 4.21 ERA) faces off against the Suns at 7:05 pm ET.
  • Bakersfield lost to the Lake Elisnore Storm 3-2, but who cares? Billy Hamilton satiated our desire for round numbers by stealing his 100th base of the season in just 78 games. Sitting at 98 going into the action last night, Snax walked in the 5th and took second for number 99, then in the 8th he got a base knock and once again swiped second base. Billy is on pace to blow past Vince Coleman's professional record of 145 steals in a season. His 100 steals are more than 100 MiLB teams have collectively. Jamie Walczak got the loss despite throwing a solid 6 innings of 2-run (1 earned), 7 K ball. Up Next: Danny Renken (4-3, 4.24 ERA) and the Blaze play an early 9:05 ET game against the Storm.
  • Dayton won, beating the Bowling Green Hot Rods 3-2. The Dragons trailed for the majority of the game until Sean Buckley stroked a two-run dongpiece in the top of the 8th inning to give Dayton a one-run lead. Michael Dennhardt and Carlos Contreras combined for two shutout innings to preserve the lead and come away with the victory. Up Next: The Dragons continue their series against the Hot Rods at 8:05 ET with James Allen (5-2, 3.40 ERA) taking the mound.
  • Billings lost to the Missoula Osprey 4-2. This was a pretty uneventful night for the Mustangs, as they managed just 4 hits, and only one of the extra-base variety. Jesse Winker got his OBP up higher than his slugging percentage by going 0-1 with a Cy Shourek approved 3 walks. This year's 3rd round pick Dan Langfield threw two scoreless innings striking out two and walking none. Up Next: Wes Mugarian son of Lord Mugarian of Dragonstone (1-1, 3.21 ERA) duels the Osprey at 9:05 pm ET.
  • The AZL Reds were idle today. They play the Zona Rangers at 10:00 pm ET.
