- Louisville lost their fifth straight at home to Toledo, 7-3. Herr Lutz went nuts, smashing a 2-run wienerschnitzel in the eighth, but Nick Christiani's 3 earned runs in 1/3 of an inning really put the game out of reach. Brett Marshall was surprisingly cromulent, allowing 4 runs/3 earned in 7 innings on just 4 hits, but what're ya gunna do. Up next: Jon Moscot (1-0, 2.92) looks to keep kicking AAAss at 7 against the Mud Hens.
- Pensacola rallied for 2 runs in the ninth and won it in the tenth against the Barons, 6-5. The Blue Wahoos were seeing red as Big Ginger Bryson Smith was 4-5, and Kyle Waldrop walloped his 7th homer of the year. Mikey "Beef" O'Brien was as forgettably average as his name suggests, giving up 3 runs in less than 6 innings. Up next: Tiny Tim Adleman (3-7, 3.00) starts against Birmingham at 8:05.
- Bakersfield got stomped by the Ports, 11-2. I'm no Sherlock Holmes, but I think I know why they lost. Drew Cisco gave up 9 runs before being yanked in the second inning, and the Ports tacked another one on for a 10-spot. Rough day at the ballyard. Beau Amaral was the only Blaze player with more than one hit, and he was 2-5. Yuck. Up next: "Dandy" Wandy Peralta (7-12, 4.72) takes the bump at 10:15.
- Dayton wasn't much better, losing to Lansing 9-3. Amir Garrett struck out 7 in 5 innings, but his defense let him down a bit, and he ended up allowing 5 runs/3 earned on 4 hits and a walk. K/BB numbers still ain't bad, just one of those days I guess. Robert Ramirez was the lone bright spot on offense, who shot their wad in the first 6 innings. Bobby Ram went 2-4 with a solo homer. Up next: Sal Romano (8-10, 4.01) against Lansing at 7:05.
- Billings split a doubleheader against Missoula, losing 4-0 in a 2-hit shutout in Game 1, and bouncing back for a 5-3 win in "extras" (the 8th) in Game 2. Since the first contest was so forgettable, let's move on to the second one. Alex "Judy" Greer went yard, Argenis Aldazoro was 2-3 with a triple and a walk, and Taylor Sparks hit 3 sac flies. It was mostly a bullpen game, and no one stood out, so I won't bore you with details, and I'm kinda hungry anyway. Up next: Luke Moran (5-5, 4.41) faces Touki Toussaint at 9:35.
- The AZL Reds couldn't muster much offense (I'm detecting a theme, here), and lost to the Indian kids, 5-1. They scraped together just 4 hits on the day, all singles, and committed 3 errors. No bueno. Up next: Off day

The offense is already gone, though
