Louisville went and got all stoopid tonight when they lost to Buffalo 4-1. Jeff Francis was as boring as his name (7 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K). Curtis Partch redeemed himself with a scoreless inning in the eighth. The offense bad bad bad bad bad. They struck out 13 times. Bourgeois hit a double. Whatever. Josh Smith and his 2.45 ERA start tomorrow against Rochester at 7:05 pm EST.
Pensacola didn't play because Lutz didn't want to wear pants. Lutz will put his pants on tomorrow, and The Invisible Man will take the mound at 7:05 pm CST. You won't know if he's wearing pants or not, because they are invisible, too.
Bakersfield ended up winning a wild game in the 9th by the score of 8-7! Juan Silva was the hero of the game, hitting the walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth. He's my hero every game. I told you guys, but you wouldn't believe me. You refused to vote for him in the RR CPR. Sham on you! Shame! I stayed up for this game because I'm an idiot, but Silva hitting the walk off was totes worth it.
Anderson Juan Silva also had a RBI single during the game. The Blaze were also carried by their two other stars. Seth Major-Badass (Salutes!) was 3 for 4 with a run scored, a double, and 2 RBI. Kyle Waldrop was 2 for 3 with a run scored, a double, and an RBI. Unfortunately, the starting pitching. James Allen gave up 6 ER in 3.2 innings, walked 4, and struck out 5. Jake Johnson was the best Blaze pitcher of the night, striking out 4 in 2.1 innings. Kyle McMyne picked up the win, but he did load the bases in the 9th. Invisible Man Numero Dos will take the mound against Stockton at 7:15 pm PST.
Dayton had their game with Lansing suspended because the sky was leaking. They were losing 4-2. I think they pick the game up again tomorrow? Do they do a 7 inning thing? I don't know. Minor league baseball is weird. *Edit* Our good buddy poojols has let me know that the suspended game will finish a full nine. The second game will only go 7 and start at it's regular time. Amir Garrett got the start and was bad. He gave up 3 ER in 3 innings. He didn't walk a batter, though. Silver linings. Joel Bender struck out 2 batters in an inning. Kiss his shiny metal ass. Daniel Mateo was 2 for 2 with a double. Jammy McGruderskins had an RBI single. They'll probably play baseball earlier tomorrow, but they are scheduled to play 7:00 pm with Krampus on the mound.
