Louisville did a good job of depressing me early with a 5-0 loss. Keyvius "Strong Like" Sampson had a good start (6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 9 K). Jose De La Torre and Nick "Sister" Christiani pitched scoreless innings, but some jerk named Collin Balester gave up 3 earned runs in the 9th. Brennan "Splintered Ass" Boesch, Irving "Moo Moo" Falu, and Josh Satin Sheets all had multi-hit games. Holmdiggity starts tonight at 7:05 PM EST.
Pensacola lost to Mississippi, 4-2. Barrett "A Little Place Called" Astin allowed a lot of base runners but didn't give up a ton of runs (5.1 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K. Kyle McMyne pitched 2 scoreless innings. Sean "Daddy's Boy" Buckley was 2 for 3. The Big Deal pitches tonight at 6:35 PM CST.
Daytona rescued our sanity with a 3-2 victory over Palm Beach. Slippy Sal Romano continues to look pretty good (6 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K). Evan Mitchell pitched a scoreless inning. Brian "Where's Da Beef" O'Grady had the big hit of the game. Making his Daytona debut, he hit a 3 run wanger in the 7th inning. The Booger Digger pitches tonight at 6:35 PM EST.
Dayton put some bats on the ball and sent the home crowd home happy with a 9-2 victory. Tyler "Darth" Mahle keeps striking everyone out and not walking batters (5 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K). Jacob "Alaster" Moody, Jeremy "Hot Rod" Kivel, and Brennan "San" Bernardina all had scoreless appearances out of the pen. Narciso "I'm Not A" Crook was 2 for 4 with 2 doubles, 3 RBI, and a run scored. Jonathan Reynoso was 3 for 3 with 2 runs scored, and Jimmy "Slim" Pickens was 2 for 3 and scored 3 runs. Strong Arm Armstrong pitches tonight at 7:00 PM EST.
Billings played forever, to the 15th inning in fact, and lost, 9-8. No one pitched particularly well, but Jimmy "Lee Swaggart" Herget did pitch 2 scoreless innings. Reydel Medina was 4 for 7 with a double, RBI, and 2 runs scored. Tyler Stephenson was 2 for 6 with a walk, RBI, and a run scored. Mr. Ed Charlton had 2 doubles and 2 RBI. Also, I just noticed this, but Kevin "Cherry" Garcia had a single and 4 walks in the game. Ramsey Bolton pitches tonight at 7:05 PM MT.
The Arizona Reds won a close one by the score of 3-2. Jonathon "Crawfish" Crawford started the game and went 1.1 innings giving up a hit, a HBP, 2 ER, and a K. Sounds like the first inning was clean and he left some inherited runners on to score in the second. Adrian "Gonzalez" Rodriguez pitched 4.2 scoreless with 3 K, but looks to have let in the two inherited runners, and Sandy "Britches" Lugo struck out 5 in 3 scoreless innings. Raul "Castro" Wallace and Leandro "Carlos" Santana both had 2 hits in the game, and Santana also had a walk.
