Farmers Only: All Hail Mike Costanzo

Future Hall of Famer


Louisville came back in dramatic fashion, scoring 6 runs in the bottom of the 9th to beat the Tides 10-7.  Chien-Ming Wang got the start for Louisville, and the Wang got slapped around a bit, giving up 7 earned runs in 5.2 innings, striking out 4 and walking 2.  Magic Mike Costanzo went 1-5, but was the hero in this one, blasting a walk off grand slami to ensure victory for the Bats.  Up Next:  Chad Reineke (0-3, 10.55 ERA) faces the Paw Sawx tonight at 6:35 ET.

Pensacola squeaked past the Lookouts, winning 3-2.  Michael Lorenzen spun another gem, tossing 7 innings of 1-run ball, giving up just 3 hits and a walk, while striking out 6.  Yorman Rodriguez was 0-4 in his first game back in action since April 24th.  Juan Silverio high-ho'd a 3-4 night, while Juan Duran went 1-4 with a double.  Up Next:  Mikey O'Brien (1-2, 4.24 ERA) takes the hill at 7:35 ET.

Bakersfield lost to the Inland Empire 66'ers 6-4, snapping a 7-game win streak.  Wandy Peralta carried a 4-0 lead into the 5th inning when the wheels fell off, giving up 6 runs.  His line on the night was a disappointing 4.2 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 3 K, 1 BB.  Jesse Winker went 2-4 with a walk and a stolen base, and David Vidal sassoon'd a pair of doubles on a 2-4 night.  Up Next:  Jimmy Jam Jam Allen (2-1, 5.70 ERA) squares off against the Rawhides at 10:15 ET.

Dayton topped the TinCaps in a 7-4 affair.  Ismael Guillon had a 7 strikeout performance, but allowed 3 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks, and couldn't make it out of the 5th inning.  Jeff "Peanut Butter" Gelalich hammered out 2 doubles, drove in one, and scored twice on a 3-5 night.  Phil Ervin also went 3-5, all 3 singles.  Up Next:  Amir Garrett (0-2, 6.56 ERA) gets the start against Fort Wayne at 7 ET.
