Louisville lost to pitiful 7-20 LeHigh (of IronPig fame), 5-3. Matt "Canadian University of" Magill got some work in, allowing 3R, 7H in 4 IP. He must still be working his stamina up from the injury, departing after just 76 pitches. He K'd 1, but walked none. Ryan LaMarre BABIP'd his sweet way into another 2-5 outing (with 3K's) but dammit, I'm still pulling for him. Jermaine "Jermajesty" Curtis and Hernan "Irritated Hernia" Irribarren both had 2 hits. Up next: OFF DAY
Pensacola got swept in a doubleheader against Tennessee. They lost Game 1 by a score of 2-1. Oh Robert Stephenson. Wherefore art thy command? Ol Bob Steve walked 7 in 6.1 IP, although he gave up just 2 runs on 4 H, with 4 K. It sucks that this is a step forward. Kyle Waldrop was 2-3, and Marquez "de Sade" Smith had a sac fly. Game 2 was a 4-1 loss for the Wahoos. Tiny Tim Adelman K'd 7 without giving up a run in 5 IP, allowing 3 H and 2 BB, but CarGo (not the good one) imploded for 4 runs in 2/3 IP. Super Pitcher Ray Chang, who was at SS, was 2-3, and that was pretty much all the offense for the Hoos. Up next: Danny "The Isle of" Wright (0-4, 7.59) faces the Smokies at 7:35.
Daytona rode a late rally to beat Lakeland, 3-2. Chad Wallach (2-4) and Sebastian "Kaiju" Elizalde (2-4) each had RBI singles in the 8th to take the lead for good. Alex Blandino and Carlton "Banks" Daal both had 2-hit days as well. Jackson "Greybeard" Stephens was solid in 4.1 IP, giving up a run on 6 H, 1 BB, and 3 K. El'Hajj tossed another clean inning, and despite the plus-plus names of the Flying Tiger pitching (Locke St. John, Scott Sitz, Montreal Robertson, & Confesor Lara), the Tortugas came out on top. Up next: A new series against Clearwater starts at 7:05, with Nick Travieso (2-2, 3.45) on the bump.
- The Dragons rallied in the 11th as Dayton beat Ft. Wayne, 6-5. Ty Washington is still made of f'in radiation, and one of his 3 hits was the decisive RBI single. Luis Gonzalez and Narciso "Arrogant Nixon" Crook each had 2 hits and 2 runs, with the latter adding a pair of RBI as well. Mark "Stretch" Armstrong held the TinCaps to 4 H, giving up 2R/1ER in 6 IP with a walk and 3 K. Jake "Robert" Paulson bitch tits'd and blubbered his way to blowing the lead (1.1 IP, 4H, 3R), but thank the spaghetti monster for Ty Washington. Up next: New series with West Michigan sees Tyler Mahle (2-2, 4.73) on the hill, starting at 7:00.
Late rallies and lost control. Come back to me, Bob Steve.
