In what's been few and far between this year, David Holmberg had a solid start, allowing 2 runs over 8 innings, striking out 3 and walking 3. Matt Buschmann toes the rubber for the Bats tonight.
Pensacola also brought out the big lumber last night, beating the Jr. Barves 9-3. Jesse Winker went 2-5 with a 2-run wanger, while Marquez "1,000 Years of Solitude" Smith went 1-5 with a 2-run shot of his own. Seth Mejias-Brean went 1-4 with an RBI triple and a walk.

Daytona got rained out yet again. No starter named yet for tonight.
Dayton kept up the winning ways, beating the Bowling Green Hot Rods 3-2. Seth Varner "Herzog" went 7 strong, allowing a pair of runs on 6 hits while striking out 6 and walking none. Avain "Ross and" Rachal went 3-4 with a solo homer, and Brian "Beef" O'Grady went 1-4 with a double. Wyatt Strahan gears up against the Hot Rods tonight at 8:00.
Billings took a fantastic voyage, winning 7-2 in Great Falls. Jordan "Hells Pitching" Ramsey got the start, and allowed only 1 hit no runs in 1.2 innings, striking out 4 batters and walking 3. Kevin Garcia smacked 2 doubles, going 4-5 with an RBI. Jonathan "De Stijl" Martjin and Ed "Norm" Charlton both went 2-4 with a double and a triple. Jacob Constante gets the start as the Mustangs head to Missoula tonight at 9:00.
The organization could have had a perfect evening if it weren't for those meddling kids. The Jr. Reds lost to the Dodgers 4-0. Mason Felt made his pro debut last night, giving up a hit and a walk in a scoreless inning. Regardless of his performance, it's great to see Felt back on a mound after the tragic car accident that cost his father his life. The offense was pretty bad, with no extra base hits and no multi hit games.
