Farmers Only Weekend Harvest: BP Rehab Swag

Looking for minor league #Debbies

Jamie Sabau


The Bats welcomed Brandon Phillips to Louisville with a 9-0 loss to the Indianapolis Indians.  El Beeparino went 0-2 with a walk in his first game back from his thumb injury.  BP wasn't the only rehabbing Red in this one, as Logan Ondrusek pitched a scoreless first inning, allowing a pair of hits.  Scott "Shine on You Crazy" Diamond had a nightmare appearance, giving up 7 runs on 10 hits in 3.1 innings.  Blech.

Louisville got beat up again on Saturday, losing 8-2 to Naptown.  Mikey O'Brien got smacked around like a red-headed stepchild, giving up 6 runs on 7 hits and 4 walks in 5 innings, while striking out 3.  BP went 0-3 in his second rehab appearance.

The Bats salvaged the weekend, beating the Indians 5-4 on Sunday.  Brett Marshall had a rare solid start, making it through 7 innings with 3 runs allowed (2 earned), with 3 K and 2 walks.  Felix Perez and Donald Lutz had matching lines, both going 2-6 with a double, though Lutz did drive in a run.  The recently promoted Ross "That Smell" Perez went 2-5 with a double and an RBI.  Up Next:  Mongo (1-6, 4.64 ERA) throw ball at 7:05 ET in Indy.


The Wahoos beat up on the Bay Bears on Friday, winning 8-3.  Bob Steve fanned 5 in 5 innings, giving up a run on 4 hits and a pair of walks.  Not bad, Bobby.  Travis "Moose" Mattair blasted a 3-run Bullwinkle on a 2-4 night, and singlehandedly outscored Mobile with 4 RsBI.  Devin Lohman went 3-4 with a triple, and Juan Silverio honked a solo dinger on a 1-4 night.

Pensacola had a frustrating Saturday, getting shutout 3-0 despite rapping out 8 hits, and having 15 batters reach base.  Michael Lorenzen had a so-so start, striking out 4 and walking 2, while giving up a pair of runs in 5 innings.  Brodie Greene, Moose Mattair and Chris Berset all had multi-hit games, but not enough clutchy gritscrap to get them around to score.

The Wahoos got shutout yet again on Sunday, falling 4-0 to the Jacksonville Suns.  Daniel Corcino looked very sharp, striking out 7 in 7 innings, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks.  Unfortunately, the offense.  The 'Hoos were held to just 4 hits, with Brodie Greene (1-4, 2B) being the only batter to make it past first base.  Up Next: Gopper (7-10, 3.13 ERA) is listed as the starter for the afternoon game, but he's apparently been promoted to Louisville, so who knows.


The Blaze ate a big ol' Fried Baloney Gelalich, walking off against Lancaster in a 6-5 victory.  Jeff Gelalich went 2-5, and hit the game winning 2-run double in the bottom of the 9th.  Sebastian Elizalde went 2-4 with 2 doubles.  Mike Dennhardt struggled with his command, walking 5 batters in 6 innings.  Dennhardt gave up 4 runs on 1 hit, but only 1 run was earned.

Bakersfield blanked the JetHawks on Saturday, winning 5-0.  Daniel Wright kept Lancaster off the board through 6 innings, striking out 5 batters while giving up 4 hits and 2 walks.  Marquez Smith mashed a 3-run dinger on a 2-4 night, which would prove to be enough for the Blaze.

It was another walkoff victory for the Blaze on Sunday, winning 7-6 on a solo- smash from Joe Hudson "Hawk."  Including Hudson's, there were 5 dingers from the Blaze.  Beau "Arts" Amaral and Jeff Gelalich both went 2-4 with a pair of long-balls.  El'Hajj Muhammad kept the JetHawks off the board in the first 2 innings, striking out 2, while walking 1 and allowing a hit.  Ismael Guillon was not as successful, giving up 6 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings pitched.  Up Next:  Drew Cisco (5-5, 6.22 ERA) looks to keep the winning streak alive at 10:15 ET.


The Dragons shut out Bowling Green on Friday night, beating the Hot Rods 1-0.  Nick Travieso pitched around 5 walks, striking out 4, and allowing just 1 hit in 6 scoreless innings.  Jose Ortiz scored the game's only run, mashing a solo tater on a 1-2 night with a walk.

Dayton walked off a winner on Saturday, as the Dragons came from behind to beat the Hot Rods 6-5.  Alex "The Great" Blandino smacked 2 doubles, one of them the game winner, on a 3-5 night.  He also committed 2 errors - one fielding, one throwing.  Jose Ortiz honked his second wanger in as many games, going 2-3 with a solo shot and a walk.  Jackson Stephens struck out 6 in 6 innings, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) on 8 hits and 3 walks.

The Dragons got beat around on Sunday, falling 10-4 against Bowling Green.  Brandon Phillips went 2-3 with a double, a HBP and a strikeout.  Nick Howard struggled through a 5-inning start, giving up 6 runs on 8 hits and a walk, while striking out just 2 batters.  Up Next:  Amir Garrett (7-6, 3.22 ERA) looks to keep up his hot streak as the Dragons head to South Bend at 7:05 ET.


The Mustangs won a wild one on Friday, beating the Orem Owlz 12-11.  The pitching was a whole bunch of horseshit, but the offense was very bueno.  Aristides Aquino drove in 3 runs, going 2-5 with a three-bagger.  Brian "Beef" O'Grady went 2-4 with a solo wanger.  The Billings defense committed 4 errors in the game, and Orem had 2 of their own.

Billings beat up on the Owlz, winning 7-1 in Orem.  Luke Moran had a quality start (6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 K, 0 BB), but was outshined by Soid Marquez who struck out 6 batters in 3 scoreless innings.  Aristides Aquino went 2-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored.

It was a hit parade on Sunday, as the 'Stangs banged out 15 hits and spanked the Owlz 10-2.  "Heiress Titties" Aquino went 2-4, honked his 14th wanger and swiped his 15th base of the season.  He's very good.  Cory Thompson (3-4, HR, 2 RBI), Alex Greer (2-5, 2B, HR), and Josciel Veras (1-4, HR, 2 RBI) all went yard as well.  Up Next: Conor "Kriss" Krauss (0-1, 5.40 ERA) takes the hill in Orem at 9:05 ET.

Arizona League

The AZL Reds fell to the lil' A's, falling 8-2.  The other Junior Arias got the start, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks in 3.1 innings, striking out 2.  Hector Vargas drove in both runs, going 1-3 with a double and a walk.

The Reds got back at the A's on Saturday, winning 4-3.  Jose Siri had the only multi-hit game, going 2-4 with a pair of runs scored, and Narcisco "I Am Not A" Crook went 1-4 with a triple and an RBI.  Ty Boyles struck out 5 in 4.1 innings, and got the win.

The Reds and Giants had their game suspended due to rain after the 3rd inning.  They'll reconvene tonight as part of a partial doubleheader.
