Louisville beat the Syracuse Chiefs 6-4 thanks to a 2-run rally in the 8th inning. The Bats put up a 4 spot in the top of the first, giving starter Ryan Dennick some breathing room. Dennick wasn't very sharp, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks in 4.1 innings, striking out 4 in the process. Billy Quix had a 2012-type night, going 2-4 with a walk and 2 stolen bases. More of that, please. Up Next: Chad Reineke (8-7, 3.53 ERA) squares off against the Chefs at 7.
Pensacola got rained out. No makeup date has been announced yet. Sean "Perry" Ellis (3-1, 3.55 ERA) gets the nod for the 'Hoos at 8.
Bakersfield lost a close one, falling 3-2 to the JetHawks. Poor, poor Jon Moscot just can't catch a break. He got tagged with his 14th loss of the season, in a 6 inning, 3 hit, 3 run, 3 K, 2 BB outing. Steve Selsky (2-4) drove in both Blaze runs on a wang chung in the 4th. Up Next: TBD takes on TBD as the Blaze face Modesto at 10:05.
Dayton was on the smiling side of the scoreboard, winning a wild one 10-9. Sal RomanLOL ran the car off the road, giving up 8 runs on 9 hits, striking out 1 and walking 3. Yeesh. Fortunately, the offense. Seth Mejias-Brean kept up his hot-hitting ways, going 2-4 with a triple, a dinger, and a walk. The Green Brean is OPSing 1.250 in the month of July. Gigggity. Up Next: Ismael Guillon (4-6, 5.91 ERA) looks to harpoon the Lugnuts at 7.
Billings got beat up by the Orem Owlz, losing 9-5. Ben Lively tossed 3 innings, allowing an unearned run, fanning 2 and walking 2. Phil Ervin did what he does, going 2-3 with a double and a walk, while my boy Jose Ortiz drove in 2 on a 2-4 night with a double. Daniel Wright got tagged with the loss, allowing 5 runs in 3 innings. He did strike out 5 with no walks, which is cool, I guess. Up Next: Pedro Diaz (1-4, 5.33 ERA) takes the hill against the Owlz at 9.
The AZLiens lost a snoozer 5-3 to the Lil' Mariners. It was pretty dumb. Up Next: The Reds face the Baby Giants at 10.
