  • Louisville rallied big and late to beat the G-Barves again, 6-2 to climb back to .500. They went down 2-nil in the first inning, but three runs in the eighth and ninth took care of things. Donald Lutz honked one to Bavaria for his only hit, and added a walk. Shelley "Tell Your Dad to Fix Cingrani" Duncan hit a pinch-hit homer (when did they sign Shelley Duncan??), and the Bats got 2 hits apiece from Neftali Soto, Jason Bourgeois, and Chris Nelson. Josh Smith tossed 7 innings of 2-run ball, giving up 4 hits and 5 walks with 7 strikeouts. Up next: Jair Jurrjens (1-1, 4.91) faces his former club's farm team at 7:05.

  • Pensacola fell victim to the big inning, losing to Mobile 6-3. Wahoo starter Jon "Butter" Moscot had a rough fourth inning, as 4 runs were scored on an error, an infield single, a broken bat single, and a crushing double from the opposing pitcher. Despite the 3 runs, they couldn't muster a ton of offense, managing just 5 hits, though they were patient in drawing 5 walks. None of them came from Yorman Rodriguez, who was 0-5. Up next: Robert Stephenson (3-5, 3.49) doing the damn thing at 7:05.

  • Bakersfield should be known as the RoShamBos because they kicked the Nuts for the second night in a row, 12-2. Marquez "Bonds" Smith (3-4) clubbed his third homer in 2 games, Juan Silva added 3 hits of his own (and stole his 30th and 31st base), and every single batter had at least one hit. Mike "You Can Never Take My Freedom" Dennhardt pitched 7 solid innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits and a pair of walks, striking out 7. Up next: Dandy Wandy Peralta looks to crush the Nuts at 10:45.

  • Dayton came alive in the eighth inning to complete the sweep of Bowling Green, 3-1. If they can win their next 3 and hope West Michigan gets swept, they'll make the arbitrary first-half playoffs! Yay! Yay? Anyhow, since Nick Travieso was demoted, a bunch of bullpenners strung together mostly scoreless innings for the Dragons, and a leadoff double from Jon Matthews and a bunch of bloop hits, errors, and productive outs plated three runs in the eighth to push Dayton to victory. Nobody had more than 1 hit. Up next: Ismael Guillon (4-0, 2.79) will be all like "promote me!" against Lake County and their starting pitcher Dice Kime and I am not even joking that's really his name.
