Farmers Only: Show Me That Smile Again

  • Louisville lost to Indianapolis, 7-5. Willie Harris tallywhacked a pair of ballyhoos (one to lead off the game), Mike Costanzo had two hits, and Cody Puckett knocked in two with a double. The pitching staff made it a bullpen game, as Kanekoa Texeira started and lasted only 2.1 innings, Travis Webb took the loss, and everyone who pitched (Josh Judy and Carlos Fisher were the others) gave up run(s). Texeira was hit by a pitch in his only at-bat, so that might have had something to do with the short outing. Up next: Todd "Invisi-fastball" Redmond (8-9, 3.54) faces Indy.
  • Pensacola dropped double 3-spots on the Montgomery Biscuits but still lost, 9-8. Curtis Partch and Justin "Morgan" Freeman spluttered away a solid outing by Mark "Chile Pepper" Serrano, who pitched like a boss (6IP, 4H 2R 1ER 1BB 5K). Spicyyyy. David Vidal gore'd his 11th of the year (he's hot, ladies and gents--.904 OPS last 10 games), and knocked in 4. Peabo Bryson Smith had a sexy two-run triple, and The Hellflower reached base four times. Billy Hamilton got the night off so his shoes could be extinguished. But yeah, yucky bullpenning. Up next: Someone against Montgomery at 8.
  • Bakersfield unleashed a 15 hit barrage against the Inland Empire 66ers, winning 10-5. Moose Mattair, Dominic D'Anna, and Danny "Sid" Vicioso all had 3 hits, with Vicioso bollocksing his third homer of the year. Danny Renken had an Arroyo special, giving up 4 runs in 6 innings, striking out 7 and walking 1. T-Bowe stole his 48th bag of the year. Up next: Stalin Gerson will try to send the 66ers to the gulag at 10:15.
  • Dayton won! Nahhh, I'm just pullin' your collective legs, they lost, 12-5, to Bowling Green. Juan Silva speckled a hen to right as part of a 3-run Dragon fourth inning, and Yorman Rodriguez had two hits and a walk (!!), but Robert Stephenson had by far his worst outing as a pro, giving up 7 earned runs on 8 hits in just 3.1 innings. He walked 2 and struck out 5. Growing pains, is all, but like Kirk Cameron, it still sucks. Lucas O'Rear allowed 2 of his inherited runners to score, which didn't help matters, but Bob Steve did leave 'em juiced with only 1 out. I'm not worried. Up next: James "Jim-Al" Allen (7-4, 4.02) takes on BG at 7:35.
  • Billings got walloped by the dad-gum Chukars, falling 11-5. Joel Bender got his shiny metal ass dented, surrendering 9 runs in 3 innings of work. Jesse "The Fonz" Winker and Daniel "Rickety" Pigott each had two hits, and Brandon Dailey and Robert Ramirez both tripled. Up next: Dapper Dan Langfield (3-0, 2.77) tries to choke some Chukars at 9:15.
  • The AZL Reds were off today. They face some seminarians tomorrow at 10.
