Farmers Only: No Offense? No Problem!

Timely hitting and good pitching, plus a Bruce Chen cameo!

  • Louisville dropped the first of a double-dipper, 1-0. David Holmberg was the hard-luck loser, giving up just 1 run on 3 hits, with 5 K and 2 walks. Good to see Mongo make pitch right again. Tucker Barnhart had a pair of doubles, but obviously the offense in this one was about as potent as a glass of tepid water. As for Game 2, they flipped the script on Columbus, coming out a 1-0 victor. Jonny Moscot allowed just 3 hits over 5.2 innings, striking out 6 and walking 2. Well played, Muskrat. Eugenio Suarez's solo homer to lead off the game was all it took. Ivan De Jesus had the only other hit for the Bats, who were 2-hit by Bruce Chen. I'm serious. To. The. Chen. Up next: Dylan Axelrod (0-0, 1.35) faces Indy at 1:35.

  • Pensacola had a second day off, but this one was scheduled. Marcus "Pond" Walden makes his first start tomorrow at 11:30 versus Tennessee.
  • Daytona was 2-hit by Charlotte, losing 2-0. The Magnificent Phil Ervin was 1-3 with a walk and a SB, and catcher Joe "Rock" Hudson had the only other hit for the Dragonas. Alex Blandino did walk once, but the team struck out 13 times. Nick Travieso wrestled with control, walking 4 in 5.2 innings, but allowed just 2 runs on 4 hits with 5 strikeouts (and a throwing error). Up next: The Sloppy Jalopy Sal Romano (0-1, 13.50) looks to get back on track against Charlotte at 7:05.
  • Dayton got the walk off win over South Bend, 3-2. Aristides "Skee Lo" Aquino doubled to lead off the bottom of the ninth, and after advancing on a fly out, scored on a fielder's choice by Jimmy "Slim" Pickens. Mark Armstrong was solid in 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits, with a walk and a strikeout. Jacob "Record Scratch Sound" Ehret tossed 3 scoreless relief innings of 1-hit, 5 K ball, which was very cool. No Dragon had more than 1 hit. Up next: The Dragons face Bowling Green at 7. No starter announced yet.
