Farmers Only: A Big Man Doing Big Things in the Desert

He's proud to be an Okie from Mash-kogee

Louisville banged out 8 hits, but only managed to push one across, and lost 4-1 to the Chiefs.  Brett "Marshall Marshall" Marshall gave up 3 runs in 5.2 innings, which is actually a positive development for him, walking 4 and striking out 3.  Felix Perez had half of the Bats' offensive output, going a perfect 4-4 with a double.  Up Next: Mongo (1-6, 4.90 ERA) makes pitch at 7:00 in Syracuse.

Pensacola narrowly avoided a 9th inning rally from the Generals, and held off to win 3-2.  Daniel Corcino had his best start of the season, tossing 8 scoreless while striking out 6 and walking just one batter.  This was his second straight solid outing.  Yorman Rodriguez went 1-4 with a double, and Seth Mejias-Brean went 2-3 with a double and a walk.  Up Next:  Gopper (6-10, 3.30 ERA) takes the hill against Jackson at 7:30 ET.

Bakersfield edged out Visalia in a Cal League special, winning 11-10.  Drew Cisco got pounded for 8 runs (7 earned) on 2 walks and 9 hits over 4.1 innings.  The offense had Drew's back, smacking 15 hits on the evening.  Sean Buckley drove in 3 runs on a 2-4 night with a double and a dinger.  Marquez "1,000 Innings of Solitude" Smith went yard as well, going 1-2 with a wanger and a pair of walks.  Up Next: Wandy Peralta (7-10, 4.83 ERA) faces off against Visalia at 10:00 ET.

Dayton spent a rainy night in Bowling Green, and saw their game postponed.  They'll play a double header today starting at 6:00 ET.

Billings fell to Michael Cuddyer and the Grand Junction Rockies 9-5.  The only two multi-hit games belonged to Kevin Franklin who went 2-5 with a double and Jimmy "Slim" Pickens who went 2-4 with a double as well.  Bad pitching and bad defense doomed the Mustangs, though Jose Williams held the Rockies to 1 hit over 3.2 innings, while striking out 2 and walking none.  Up Next:  Wyatt Strahan (0-3, 3.70) gets the start as the Orem Owlz head into town.

The AZL Reds fell 4-3 the the Jr. White Sox.  Gavin LaValley went 2-4, walloping his 9th and 10th doubles of the short season, raising his OPS to .924 in his first 37 professional games.  Reydel Medina went 1-4 with a solo shot, his 5th of the season.  Juan Martinez struck out 7 in 6 innings, giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits and a walk.  Unfortunately, the other Junior Arias (3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 2 K).  Up Next: The Reds face the Sox again at 10:00 ET.
