Farmers Only: No Bats in the 'Ville

Louisville sets a dubious record, the Wahoos play two, and a wangerfest in Montana.


Louisville lost a franchise record 12th straight game, falling 7-0 to Rochester.  The Bats' bats have gone cold, as they were the victim of a 5-hit shutout for the second consecutive game, and haven't scored a run in their last 24 innings.  Cool Papa Billy went 1-4 and made a great diving catch in center to save a pair of runs.  Chad Rogers gave up 5 in 5, with 8 hits, 2 walks and 3 strikeouts.  Jose Arredon-d'oh surrendered a pair of runs in his only inning, inflating his ERA to 6.24.  Up Next:  Greg Reynolds (11-3, 2.50 ERA) and the Bats are currently playing Rochester, but Weezy will give you the rundown on that one tomorrow.

Pensacola swept a double header in Huntsville last night, winning two low scoring affairs.  The Wahoos took game one 2-1, behind a solid start from Jon Moscott, who threw 5 innings of 2-hit ball, allowing an unearned run, while striking out 4 and walking 1.  Mike Costanzo honked his second wanger in as many games, going 1-2 with a walk.  Pensacola took the second game 3-2.  Daniel Renken struck out 6 in 4 innings, allowing a run on 4 hits and 2 walks.  Brandon "Too" $hort was born to mack, he went 1-3 with a solo blast in the 3rd.  Up Next:  Tim Crabbe (3.35 ERA) takes on the Stars at the oddly specific time of 7:43.

Bakersfield had the night off.  They face the 66'ers at 10, though no starters have been announced yet.

Dayton got beat down 6-1 by West Michigan.  Ismael Guillon had another solid start, spinning 6 innings of 4-hit 2-run ball with 3 K and a BB, but was tagged with the loss.  Zach Vincej was responsible for the only Dragons run, as he went 2-3 with a solo shot.  Up Next:  Nick Travieso (7-3, 4.73 ERA) looks to build upon his last outing at 7.

Billings was victorious in an 11 inning wangerpalooza, beating the Ogden Raptors 10-7.  Aristides Aquino (1-6), Avain Rachal (3-4, 2B, SB), Adam Matthews (2-6, 3 RBI), and Jose Ortiz (2-5, 3 RBI) all went yard for the Mustangs, and every starter got at least one hit except Nick Benedetto.  Pedro Diaz got the start, and went 4 innings allowing 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits and a walk, while striking out just one batter.  Up Next: OFF DAY
