Louisville Bats 9, Indianapolis Indians 5

The Bats took advantage of 4 Indianapolis errors, to beat up on the Indians Tuesday night.  Brandon Finnegan, who continues to be stretched out for a possible September callup, gave up 1 run over 4 innings while striking out 5 and walking a pair of batters.  Dylan "Cleats of Spanish Leather" Axelrod had a rough relief outing, allowing 4 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits and a walk over 1.1 innings.  I'm kind of surprised that Axelrod has been relegated to the bullpen at this point, as I would have assumed he'd be tasked to eat some innings as the Reds play out the string on this season.  Juan Perez honked a solo wanger on a 1-5 night, and Chris Berset drove in 3 on a 1-5 night with a double.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 1, Mississippi Braves 0

Timothy Adelman picked up the win in a pitcher's duel over the Jr. Barves.  Adelman tossed 6 scoreless innings, dancing around 6 hits and 2 walks while fanning 5.  The Wahoos scratched out just 4 hits, but worked 7 walks, one of which Alex Blandino drew with the bases loaded.  Jesse Winker went 1-3 with a walk.

Daytona Tortugas 2, Clearwater Threshers 0

In another pitching dominant game, Keury Mella "Yella" held the Threshers to just 3 hits over 7 scoreless innings, striking out 6 and walking 4 batters.  The Tortugas managed 6 hits on the night, all singles by different batters.  Brian "Beef" O'Grady (1-3) broke the 0-0 tie in the top of the 8th, driving in Blake Trahan on a sac fly.  They would add an insurance run in the 9th on another sac fly, this time off the bat of Taylor Sparks.

Daytona had their game suspended after leading 1-0 in the 6th inning.  They'll reconvene this afternoon at 1:00.

Billings Mustangs 2, Great Falls Voyagers 1

The Mustangs rode a strong start from Jacob Constante to a 2-1 victory.  The Constante Gardener shut the Voyagers down for 7 scoreless innings, striking out 7 while allowing just 2 hits and a walk.  Tyler Stephenson had the only multi-hit game for the Mustangs, driving in a run on 2-4 night with a double.  Kevin Franklin went 1-4 with a triple and 2 strikeouts.

AZL Reds 2, AZL White Sox 8

Antonio Santillan had a very bad day at the office, giving up 7 earned runs on 5 hits and a walk before making it out of the first inning.  This is coming off the heels of a start where Santillan struck out 7 in 4 scoreless innings.  Such is the life of an 18 year-old pitcher.  Montrell Marshall drove in both Reds runs, going 2-4 with a 2-run dinger.
