Farmers Only: What Is A Ten Run Fifth?

I don't know, but it sounds fun.

Louisville Bats 16, Columbus Clippers 5

Holy cow, the Bats scored 10 runs in the fifth inning.  We'll start with the pitchers just to get them out of the way.  Tim "Able man" Adleman pitched 5 innings, giving up 5 runs, 7 hits, 2 BB, 5 K.  JC "Penny's" Ramirez pitched a scoreless inning of relief with 2 strikeouts, and Ryan Mattheus threw 2 scoreless.  Crap, there were a ton of hits.  I'll give you the stats from the top prospects.  Jesse "Winkerbean" Winker was 3 for 4 with a double, 2 RBI, and 2 walks.  Jose Peraza was 4 for 6 with 3 runs scored, a double, and a RBI.  There were surprisingly no home runs hit and every player had a hit, several had multiple hits.  It was crazy town.

The Bats will have a TBD pitching at 7:05 PM EST.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 2, Biloxi Shuckers 5

General Jackson Stephens took the start and continued to look impressive (6.2 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K). Chad "Walka Walka" Wallach was 0 for 2 with 2 walks and a RBI.  That's the best I could find in the hitting line because there wasn't much else to talk about.  I can't lie about this.  I'm trying to fill space with words to make this paragraph worth the time.

Rookie Davis will pitch tonight at 6:40 PM CT.

Daytona Tortugas 2, Clearwater Threshers 4

Wyatt "Derp" Strahan took the start and got thumped around a bit.  He pitched 6.2 innings, giving up 9 hits, 4 earned runs, 0 walks, and struck out 2.  Jacob Ehret pitched a scoreless inning of relief with zeroes across the board.  Avain Rachel was 2 for 3 with a 2-run dinger and a walk.  So, he accounted for almost all the offense.

We got another TBD pitching guy throwing baseballs tonight at 7:00 PM EST.

Dayton Dragons 3, Great Lake Loons 5

Frandelyn "Brandy Lynn" Romero had a very solid outing.  He pitched 7 innings of 1 run ball with 5 hits allowed, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts.  The hitting was, again, pretty depressing. Tyler Stephenson was 1 for 4 with a RBI.  A lot of guys did the 1 for 4 thing with some clutchy RBIs smooshed in there.

Ty Boyles pitches tonight at 6:35 PM EST
