Louisville shot themselves in the foot, committing three errors in the fifth inning that each cost a run, and the Bats lost to the Chiefs 4-1. The Chiefs slapped Wang around, but just a little, for 6 hits in 4.1 innings, but when your defense gives the other team double the outs they should've had, can't hardly blame him. The offense was rough, as Ruben Gotay had the only multi-hit game and also had 1/3 of Louisville's 6 hits, all singles. Up next: David Holmberg is injured, apparently, so Chad Reineke (0-0, 2.84) is in line for the start at 6:35.
Pensacola lost a game with more ups and downs than Matthew McConaughey's career, ultimately falling 6-5 to the Suns. Moose Mattair knuckled his first homer of the year, and added a double to boot, and Rey "Dave" Navarro and Bryan "Matthew Harris" Anderson each had 2 hits, but it just wasn't enough. Jon Moscot didn't have his best stuff, going 6 innings but allowing 6 hits and 4 walks, with 4R/3ER and 3 strikeouts. Mikey O'Brien was charged with the blown save and loss, though, for 2/3 of a miserable inning. Up next: Michael Lorenzen (2-1, 1.45) at 1:05.
- So, like, Bakersfield is actually kind of good. They owned the Nuts, 4-0, thanks in large part to Ben Lively, who struck out 10 and allowed a single walk and single hit in 6 innings. That is just the tits. Zach Vincej was the only dude with multiple hits, going 2-4 with an RBI, although Seth Mejias-Brean singled and walked 3 times. But yeah, the real story was how sick nasty Ben Lively was. I told y'all. Up next: Someone will take the hill at 10:05.
- Dayton was swept in a doubleheader against the Notre Dame varsity team with an equally stupid name (South Bend Silver Hawks). Game 1 was a 5-2 loss, surprising in that Beau Amaral's 2-4 performance accounted for 50% of the Dragons' hits. Sal Romano busted a gasket, allowing 9 baserunners in 4 innings, which turned into 3 runs. I really wanted something awesome to happen in this game and attribute it to Jamodrick McGruder, but there wasn't anything and he was 1-3 with 2 strikeouts. One of these days, shit's gunna jam so hard. Game 2 wasn't much better, as the Dragons were doubled up, 8-4. All the pitching sucked. Sebastian Elizalde walked twice and honked his 3rd wanger, Tanner Rahier was 2-3 with 2-run double, and Carlton Daal was 2-3 with 2 runs, a trust fund, designer fencing gear, and a Galapagan Tortoise named Sir John Falstaff. Up next: Ismael Guillon (1-0, 1.65) actually gets the start today rather than yesterday, at 7:05 against the Silver Hawks.
Ben Lively jammed so jamming hard.
