Farmers Only: The D Fails


Louisville had the night off because Corky Miller was in town and took all the players out for some beers and raucous partying.  Probably not because he has a job to do, but that sounds like a hell of a good time.  Raise Hell will start later tonight at 7:05 EST for the Bats.

Pensacola beat the Smokes in walk off fashion in the 9th inning by a score of 5-4.  Daniel Wright started the game and had a weird start.  He showed why he was so good in 2014 but still gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings.  He gave up 5 hits and all those runs came in the first inning.  The amazing part is he struck out 10 and only walked 1.  Dang.  John Jacob Jingleheimer Johnson pitched 3 innings of shutout ball with 2 strikeouts.  Ryan "Wick's Wet Dream" Wright continued his torrid start to the season with 3 singles and a run scored.  Jesse Winker and Seth Mejias-Band both had a single, walk, and some ribbies (Winker 1, SMB 2).  Boring Name will get the start tonight at 6:35 CST.

The Tortugas couldn't keep up with the Thrashers last night losing 6-2.  Krampus was solid in his start giving up 3 runs (0 earned) on 5 hits, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts.  If the defense and bullpen doesn't let him down, he probably wins this game.  Wait, am I talking about the Reds or Tortugas?  Both of the errors were credited to Daal (fielding and a missed catch) and only has three on the season.  That is a massive improvement.  Alex Blandino and Carlton "Dancing" Daal both had two singles in the game, and Phillip Ervin hit a single, drove in a run, and took a walk.  Sal Romano will start tonight at 7:05 EST.

Dayton also dropped a game to the West Michigan Whitecaps 5-3.  Tyler "Good Golly Miss" Mahle was also let down by his defense.  He pitched 5 innings, giving up 5 runs, 2 earned, 7 hits, 0 walks, and 6 strikeouts.  In all, the Dragons committed 5 errors which is just a shitty thing to do.  Alejandro Chacin pitched 2 innings, striking out 4, and Jacob Ehret pitched 2 scoreless with a strikeout.  Jonathon "Sey Hey" Reynoso hit a solo bomb on a 2 for 4 night.  Ronald "Muy" Bueno and Wendell Soto also had mutli-hit games.  Wyatt Strahan will start tonight at 7:00 EST.
