Louisville and Toledo acted like they were playing in Milwaukee (Bark twice Baxter), except the Bats had
Mike Fiers David Holmdiggitydawgsnot on the mound and lost 13-8. The artist formerly known as Mongo got shelled in 2.1 innings, giving up 10 earned runs, giving up 12 hits, 2 walks, and 1 strikeout. Oddly enough he did not give up one long ball. Pedro Villareal gave up another 3 earned runs in 2 innings, but Jose De La Torre, Donovan "Mister" Hand, and Chris Carpenter's Son shut down the final 3.2 innings in the losing effort. The offense really wasn't that stellar because Toledo assisted with 3 errors. However, Yorman Rodriguez, Donald Lutzembourg, and Irving "PooPoo" Falu all had multi-hit games. Falu had a triple, 3 RBI and a walk, Yorman had a double and 2 RBI, and Lutzy had a RBI and a walk. Kyle "Didn't Know He Was Sent Down" Skipworth had two walks. Jonathon Muskox pitches today during the kegs and eggs matchup at 10:30 am.
Pensacola also came out on the losing end of an offensive onslaught by the score of 8-4. We'll start off talking about the Wahoo offense even though they only scored 4 runs. Ryan "Can't Be" Wright was 3 for 5 with 2 triples and a RBI. Sean Buckley also hit 2 doubles on a 2 for 5 night. Jesse Winker finally got off the schnide with his first funk blast of the year, a solo shot and also had another RBI on a 2 for 5 night. If you follow Dougy Dirt on Twitter, you'd know about Seth Mejias-Band hitting a homer, a massive solo shot, to go with a single and a walk. All in all, it was a nice night for the Wahoo offense. The pitching on the other hand was dismal. Timothy Adelman started off hot, but ended up giving up 4 earned run in 5.2 innings. He gave up 7 hits, walked 3, and struck out 3. Kevin
Gregg Shackelford gave up 4 earned runs in one third of an inning. Sharkbait Rogers pitched 1.1 scoreless, which is nice to see. Daniel Wright will get the start as the fans eat their chicken salad sammies at 11:00 am today.
Daytona would play a double header last night because it never stops raining in Florida.
In Game 1, the Tortugas would win by a score of 3-0. Naughty Nick Travieso was stellar in his outing, pitching 6 innings of shutout ball with 2 walks, scattering 5 hits, and striking out 5. His ERA is sitting at a tidy 1.47 on the season. Zack Weiss picked up the save by striking out the side in the 7th. CaMaron hit a solo shot and Alex Blandino was 1 for 2 with a walk.
Game 2 didn't go near as well with a 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Dunedin Blue Jays. Double Break Astin shotgunned his way to a 5 inning, 1 earned run kind of day. 3 runs were scored during his time on the mound because the defense sucked, but he only gave up 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 3. The bullpen was shitty, so we'll just go ahead and skip that. Taylor Sparks was 2 for 3 with a double. Sweet Smellin' Sal Romano will toss the balls of bases at 7:05 pm.
Dayton was rained out because of course. Jake "The Snake" Paulson and Wyatt "Derp" Strahan will pitch in the double header games tomorrow.
