Toledo 9, Louisville 3

The Bats saw their winning streak end at the hands of the Mud Hens, and (surprise) it was their bullpen that was largely the culprit.  Steve "Seashell" Selsky championed the offense with a 2 for 4 night that included a dinger, Seth Mejias-Brean "Gene Okerlund" went 2 for 4 with a double and a ribbie, and Jesse Winker "B Puckett" doubled and scored.  Chad "Shark" Rogers put in a cromulent outing as the starter, allowing just a pair of earned runs in his 5 IP, but that dissolved quickly when Matt Magill yielded 6 ER in his 1.2 innings on the bump.

Robert Stephenson "Cinnati" will take his 3.28 season ERA to the mound on Wednesday for the Bats, with first pitch set for 7:05 PM ET at Slugger Field.

Pensacola 6, Mobile 5

Brandon Dixon "The Mashed Potatoes" completely freaked for the second consecutive day, blasting another two dingers as part of a 4 for 4, 3 run, 5 ribbie evening.  It was nearly enough to beat Mobile singlehandedly, though Chad "All for one, and one for" Wallach's 3 for 4 day and Sebastian "Schweinsteiger" Elizalde's 3 for 5 effort certainly chipped in.  General Jackson Stephens picked up his 5th win of the season after limiting Mobile to just 2 ER and 5 H in his 7 IP, lowering his season ERA to a Felix Pie-worthy 3.14 for the year.

Dixon's two day totals:  7 for 9, 6 runs scored, 4 dingers, 11 ribbies, and at least a few folks questioning whether he was merely a throw-in as part of the Todd Frazier deal this past offseason.

Sal Romano will toe the rubber for the Hoos Wednesday, with first pitch set for 6:35 PM ET.

Daytona 7, Dunedin 4;  Dunedin 5, Daytona 3

The Tortugas split their doubleheader on Tuesday, and saw several solid performances in both.  "Achy" Blake Trahan popped a 3 for 4 outing in the first game, an outing in which both Angeeh "L-O" Gumbs and Blake "Hardly Even Knew Her" Butler launched dingers.  Tyler Mahle was on the bump for the 7-4 victory, and was solid, allowing just 2 ER in his 5 IP, striking out 7 against nary a walk.

Gumbs thumped again in the other contest, going 3 for 4 from the Daytona leadoff spot.  Gavin "Pierre" LaValley also chimed in, going 3 for 4 with a pair of doubles and 3 runs driven in.

Keury Mella and his 2.64 season ERA will take the mound for Daytona on Wednesday, with Dunedin again the opponent and first pitch set for 7:05 PM ET.

Lansing 4, Dayton 3

The Dragons dropped to a brutal 13-39 on the season thanks to a pair of Lugnut runs scored in the Top of the 9th, but that's just merely how the mop flops in the land of the Cincinnati Reds these days.  Reydel "The Funky Homosapien" Medina tripled and drove in a pair of runs prior to the meltdown, in the process being both the only Dragon to reach base more than once and the only Dragon to have an extra-base hit.  At one point, it backed a decent start by Tanner "Doe" Rainey (2 ER allowed in 5 IP), but that went poof in the 9th, as mentioned.

Austin "Ten!  A fu*kin' ten!" Orewiler will get the start for the Dragons on Wednesday, with first pitch against the Lugnuts set for 7:00 PM ET.
