Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville rode a 4-run outburst in the second inning and some solid pitching to a 6-2 victory over the Indianapolis Indians.  This was initially supposed to be Michael Lorenzen's turn in the rotation, but after his call-up, Daniel "Ray" Cabrera got the start.  He gave up 2 runs (1 earned) in 3 innings, dancing around 4 walks and 2 hits, while striking out 1 batter.  The bullpen covered the subsequent 6 innings, keeping the Indians off the board.  Hernan "the Barbarian" Iribarren went 3-5 with an RBI, and Steve "Too Selsky for AAA" honked his second honker of the year on a 3-4 night.  Up Next: 'Ol Magill needs a win tomorrow.  What's it going to take?

Pensacola won a close one, beating the Jackson Generals 3-1.  Keyvius Sampson made his 2015 debut, dancing around 5 hits and 4 walks to allow just 1 run while striking out 3.  Jesse Winker went 2-4 with a triple while  Kyle Waldrop went 2-4 with a double.  Up Next:  Bobby Steve looks to right the ship against the Generals at 8:05 ET.

Daytona rallied late to beat Brevard County 6-4.  Nick Howard struggled with his command, going 3.2 IP, 3 R, 2 ER, 6 BB, 3 K on the night.  Phil Ervin went 2-4 with a walk and 2 runs scored from the leadoff spot, while Alex "the Great" Blandino went 2-5 with a double and a pair of runs scored as well.  Zach "Edel" Weiss picked up his 3rd save of the season, striking out 2 in 1 perfect inning.  Up Next: The Tortugas play a double header against Brevard County starting tonight at 5 PM ET.

Dayton failed to make it a perfect organizational evening, falling 5-2 to Ft. Wayne.  Seth "Time" Varner struck out 7 while walking none in 5 IP, but gave up a pair of runs on 7 hits.  Jacob Ehret had a bad night at the office, giving up 3 runs on 3 hits and a walk in 2 innings.  Avain Rachal went 1-2 with a double and a couple walks.  Up Next: Mark "Strong Arm" Armstrong takes on the Great Lakes Loons at 7:05 ET.
