Farmers Only: Two for One Special

New, comments

The Farmers Only office was closed on Monday in observance of the holiday. So here's a two-fer.

Louisville

The Bats got shellacked by the Toledo Mudhens on Monday, losing 11-2.  Jon Moscot had a rare terrible start, surrendering 8 runs on 11 hits and 2 walks in 4.2 innings.  Sometimes when you pitch to contact, they make hard contact I guess.  The offense was rather quiet, managing just 2 extra-base hits on the night - doubles from Yorman Rodriguez and Hernan "The Conquistador" Irribarren.

The Bats beat the Mudhens on Tuesday, winning 4-3 Dylan "Ballad of a Thin Man" Axelrod gave up 3 runs in 5 innings on 6 hits and 3 walks, while striking out just 1 batter.  The bullpen kept Toledo off the board for the final four innings, allowing Axelrod to pick up the win.  Eugenio Suarez scored a pair of runs on a 1-3 night with a walk.  Donovan Hand takes the hill for the Bats tonight at 6:35 ET.

Pensacola

The Wahoos came from behind, scoring 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th to beat the Jackson Generals 8-7.  Seth Mejias-Brean, who has been knocking the cover off the ball lately, went 3-4 with a double.  Ryan Wright (Ryan Wright!) drove in 3 runs, going 2-5 with a double.  Wandy Peralta had a rough night, giving up 5 runs (3 earned) in 2 innings before exiting the game after taking a liner off the arm.  Kyle McMyne picked up his 5th save in as many opportunities, tossing a perfect 9th inning.

Pensacola had the day off.  Keyvius Sampson looks to continue his hot start tonight against the Mississippi Barves.

Daytona

The Tortugas had the day off Monday.

Daytona rode a 6-run 6th innings to an 8-4 victory over the Bradenton Marauders.  Chad Wallach went 2-3 with a walk and 2 runs scored, while Taylor Sparks scored a pair of runs as well, going 3-4 with 3 singles.  Sal "Pecorino" Romano only lasted 3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits with no walks or strikeouts.  El'Hajj got the rare one-out save, getting out of a bases loaded jam in the 9th.  Barrett "Rudy" Astin gets the start for the Fightin' Turtles this morning at 10:30 AM.

Dayton

The Dragons spoiled a solid start from Tejay "My" Antone, falling 4-3 in 10 innings.  Antone gave up an unearned run in the first, before settling in for the next 5 innings allowing just 4 hits and striking out 2 while walking none.  Brian "Big Buck" Hunter blew the save and got tagged with the loss.  Louis Gonzales had the only multi-hit game, going 4-5 with 4 singles.

Dayton shut out the South Bend Cubs on Tuesday, winning, 4-0.  Seth "Time" Varner was slicing up eyeballs, striking out 5 and walking none over 7 scoreless innings.  Jimmy "Slim" Pickens provided the lumber, going 2-4 with a 2-run dinger.  Mark Armstrong faces off against the baby Cubs tonight at 7:00.
