Louisville got no-hit by Tyler Cloyd of the Columbus Clippers, losing 13-0. Cloyd, who hit a batter in the 7th that was subsequently erased by a double play, only had to throw 88 pitches and faced the minimum 27 batters. Which is about as easy of an effort required to throw a No-No. In contrast, Scott "Shine on You Crazy" Diamond was incredibly hittable, trudging through 6.1 innings of 6-run ball - walking 4 and striking out 3, while allowing 7 hits. Mikey O'Brien gave up 4 runs in 1.2 innings of relief. Up Next: Dylan Axelrod (6-8, 4.52 ERA) takes the hill as the Bats attempt to get a hit against Josh Tomlin and the Clippers at 7:05 ET.
Pensacola edged out the Mississippi Barves in 10 innings, winning a 1-0 pitcher's duel. Michael Lorenzen tossed 5 scoreless innings, striking out 3, walking 2, and allowing 3 hits. Yorman Rodriguez (2-5) had the game winning knock in the top of the 10th inning, driving in Devin Lohman, who went 0-3 with a walk. Up Next: Ben Lively (0-5, 3.68 ERA) takes on Tennessee at 7:15 ET.
Dayton rode a 3-run first inning and some solid pitching to a 3-1 victory over the Lansing Lugnuts. Nick Travieso gave up an unearned run in 6 innings, but walked 4 batters and struck out just 3. If my numbers are correct, Krampus has thrown two games in his professional career in which he has walked more than 3 batters, and those were his last two games. Jon Matthews drove in a run, going 3-4 with a double. Up Next: "Sorry Ms." Jackson Stephens squares off against the Lugnuts at 7:05 ET.
Bakersfield lost 8-2 thanks to some bad bullpen-ery. Daniel "My Brother" Wright struck out 6 in 6 innings and walked none, giving up a run on 4 hits. He was followed by El'Hajj Muhammad who took his second consecutive trip to Bleccha, giving up 3 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks while not being able to get out of the 7th inning. Kyle McMyne took over for Hajjy, and wasn't much better, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits while striking out 2 and walking 1. Up Next: Ismael Guillon (0-4, 7.46 ERA) tries to get it together against the Rancho Chupacabraj at 10:05 ET.
Billings fell 8-6 in Helena after a nightmare 6th inning in which they gave up a very crooked 5-spot. Soid Marquez held the Brewers to 1 run in 5 innings (4 H, 2 K, 2BB), before handing it over to Mike Saunders - who gave up 5 runs on 2 wild pitches, 2 walks and 3 hits, while only recording 1 out. Kevin Franklin came alive, smacking a double and a dinger on a 3-5 night. Up Next: Luke Moran (1-4, 5.40 ERA) faces the Brewers at 9:15 ET.
The AZL Reds had the night off.
