Louisville lost a barnburner, falling to the Paw Sawx 9-8. David Holmberg made his first start back from the DL, and looked okay through the first four innings. The wheels fell of in the fifth, however, as the Sox put a 5-spot up, and Mongo exited with 5 runs allowed on 7 hits and 2 walks, while striking out only 3. Chad Rogers continued his struggles in the bullpen, giving up 4 runs in 1.2 IP. Lets be honest, the Bats scoring 8 runs is something of a small miracle with the talent they have these days, so hats off to Jason Bourgeois (2-5, 2 2B), Mike Wilson (3-4, 2 2B) and Kris Negron (2-4, HR, 3 RBI). Up Next: Tim Crabbe (2-3, 3.93 ERA) takes on the Tides at 6:35 ET.
Pensacola blanked Jeff Keppinger and the Birmingham Barons, winning 7-0. Jon Moscot worked his way around 6 hits and a walk, tossing 7 scoreless innings of 6 strikeout ball. Rey Navarro led the offense, going 3-5 with a double and a ding dong. Donald Lutz made his not so triumphant return to the Wahoos lineup, going 0-5 with a pair of strikeouts, while Our Man went 2-4 with a walk. Up Next: Michael Lorenzen (2-1, 1.73 ERA) does the damn thing at 8:05 ET.
Bakersfield took the day off. They head to Lancaster tonight at 9:30 ET.
Dayton doubled up the Silver Hawks, and cruised to a 6-3 victory. Daniel "Not Ryan" Wright got the start and struck out 7, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits and a walk in 5.2 innings. After being shutout for 4 innings, the Dragons got on the board with a solo shot from Tanner Rahier (1-3). Jeff Gelalich, who went 1-3 with a walk capped off a 5-run 7th inning, honking a 2-out grand slam. Up Next: The Dragons continue their series against the Silver Hawks with Sal "Low APR Financing" Romano (3-2, 3.26 ERA) getting the start.
