The minor league season winds down.

Louisville ran roughshod over Indianapolis, beating the Indians 8-3.  David Holmberg had a pretty not-bad start, striking out 6 batters in 5.1 innings while giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and a walk.  The Bats rapped out 14 hits on the night, but Steve Selsky's solo dinger in 4th was the only one of the extra-base variety.  Neftali Soto and Rey Navarro each went 3-5, and Jake Elmore swiped a pair of bases on a 2-4 night.  Up Next: Brett "Whipping Boy" Marshall (1-9, 6.82 ERA) takes the hill at 7:05 for the final home stand of the season.

Pensacola had the night off.  They head to Birmingham to face the Barons at 7:05 ET.  The Wahoos site says that Daniel Corcino is starting.  I don't think that's true.

Bakersfield attempted to mount a 9th inning comeback, but failed, losing 5-2 in Stockton.  After managing just 1 hit through the first 8 innings, Junior Arias and Jeff "Enjoy Every" Gelalich smacked back to back jacks in the 9th inning.  Unfortunately, the Daniel Wright.  He gave up 5 runs in 6 innings on 8 hits and 2 walks, while fanning 6 batters.  Up Next: Drew Cisco (5-5, 6.29 ERA) takes on the Ports at 7:05 Weezt Coast time.

Dayton jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but couldn't hold on, falling 3-2 to the Lugnuts.  In what was a very promising start, The Great Blandino (1-3, BB) and Robert Ramirez (1-4) honked back to back wangers for the first two hits of the game.  Unfortunately, those would be the only two hits they'd get in the game.  Nick Howard had his second solid start in a row, tossing 5 innings of 1-run ball, striking out 5 batters and walking 1.  Up Next: Amir Garrett (7-7, 3.58 ERA) makes his final regular season start at home against Lansing at 7:00 ET.

Billings went on a fantastic voyage to Great Falls, winning 4-1.  Somehow Tyler "Darth" Mahle managed to dance around 9 hits in 6.2 innings with just 1 run allowed.  Probably had something to do with the 6 strikeouts and 0 walks.  Brian "Beef" O'Grady did most of the heavy lifting for the Mustangs, going 2-4 with a double, a triple, and 2 RBI.  Up Next: Double header!

The AZL Reds beat up on the Arizona Clevelanders, winning 5-1.  Mark Armstrong strong-armed his way to a quality start, striking out 3 batters and giving up just 1 run, despite allowing 7 hits.  Reydel Medina went 2-5 with a double, and Jose Siri went 1-3 with a triple and a walk.  Up Next: The Jr. Reds square off against the Indians yet again at 10:00 ET.
