Louisville played a game, but one that would make your eyes burn. They lost, 12-4. Donn "Cock" Roach pitched his first game in our system and was hor-ee-bal (4.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 1 K). He also gave up a wanger. Uhm, Drew "Draw Me" Hayes and Hernan "IriSomething" Iribarren had scoreless appearances out of the bullpen. Oh, shit snacks, that Iribarren something is the same guy that went 1 for 3 in the lineup. He plays for the Bats regularly in the infield and I forgot. Chris "Training Camp Star" Dominguez was 3 for 4 with a solo dinger.
Someone pitches against someone tomorrow at 7:05 PM EST.
Pensacola got all funky with their bad selves and won, 7-4. Your man, and mine, Josh " Boring Name" Smith is still killin' it at AA (5.1 IP, 10 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K). Ok, the hits were kinda high, haven't we all been that way at one point? Zack "WOOO" Weiss pitched his 11th save in AA and struck out 2 in his inning. Marquez "Mr & Mrs" Smith hit double wangers for 4 RBI. He was actually 3 for 4 on the night. Seth Three Brean Salad also hit a solo wing wang on a 2 for 3 night.
Tough Actin Barrett Astin starts tonight at 6:35 PM CST.
Daytona kept spinnin' those little tortoise legs and edged out a 3-2 win over the Duneduds. Nick Routt, who I know nothing about, keeps putting up solid numbers (5.1 IP, 9 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K). He has a 2.91 ERA. I keep looking at that name and think minor league fodder. However, he's putting up numbers that open your eyes. Joel "Kiss My Ass" Bender pitched two scoreless with 2 strikeouts, and El'Hajjy Muhammady pitched a scoreless inning for his 14th save. Carlton Daal hit leadoff and went 2 for 3 with a walk.
Amir Garrett pitches early this morning at 11:00 AM EST.
Dayton ate their fill of Johnny Appleseed's apples, and starved out the Tin Caps, 1-0. Tyler "Good Gahle Miss" Mahle has been awesome (7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K). Seriously, he's gonna be high on my CPR. Him and Strahan have been amazing, but I'm very impressed by what this kid is doing. I want him promoted. Teeny Tiny Ty Sterner and Conor "Kris" Krauss pitched scoreless innings out of the pen to support their Sith Lord. Shedric "Fredric" Long was 2 for 4, and Gavin "HeeHaw" LaValley had the lone RBI. Just wanted to saying something good about the guy that is having a quietly good season as a youngster in A ball. He isn't hitting for power, but he's holding his own against advanced pitching. If I remember right, Joey Votto didn't play at A ball at his age.
Jacob Paulson pitches tonight at 7:00 PM EST.
Billings lost to Grand Junction, 6-4. Jose Lopez took the start and would wish for a better game (4 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 1 K). Tyler "Painter" Parmenter pitched a scoreless 1.2 IP. Jonathan "Soft J" Martijn was 2 for 4 with a RBI, and Zach "Deflector" Shields was 3 for 3.
Soid Marquez pitches tonight at 7:05 PM MT.
The Baby Reds lost 4-2 to the Baby Mariners. Andrew Jordan was the only pitcher to not give up runs (2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 K). Satchel "Paige" McElroy was 3 for 5 with a triple, and Blake Butler was 2 for 3 with a triple.
