Farmers Only: Two for One Special

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

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.


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.


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.


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.
