Louisville Bats 2, Indianapolis Indians 5

Mr. Basketball Amir Garrett was brilliant in this one, going 7.0 IP, allowing only 7 hits and 0 ER, walking 2 and striking out 5. JJ Hoover vacuumed up a solid 8th, allowing only a hit and striking out 3. The problem, then, was Kevin “B 52” Shackelford, who got only 1 out before allowing all 5 earned, including the game ending GRAND SLAM to Alen Hanson. Barf.

On the offensive side, Jose Peraza collected 2 hits, Uncle Jesse Winker picked up a hit and a walk, while Hernan “The Barbarian” Iribarren picked up a hit and an RBI along with 2 walks. Carlos “Mencia” Triunfel picked up 3 hits, including a double and a run scored.

UP NEXT: Tim Adleman will take the bump for the Bats in the Land of SunnyD1988 at 7:05pm EDT.

Tennessee Smokies 9, Pensacola Blue Wahoos 4

Tyler “Mike &” Mahle would take this one back, as he managed only 3 IP, allowing 7 hits, 5 ER, and 1 walk, striking out 4. Evan Mitchell was Robin, giving up 4 hits and 2 earned in his 2 innings as well. Jacob “Record Scratch” Ehret pitched a scoreless inning, allowing only a hit while striking out 2. Not Your Father’s Carlos Gonzalez added fuel to this dumpster fire, allowing 2 more earned in 2 innings. Don’t Call My Name Alejandro Chacin pitched 1 inning, allowing nothing but a single hit, striking out 2.

Sebastian “Bach” Elizalde played a symphony of a game, going 3-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Zach “Soft J” Vincej had a double that scored 2 and walked once. Brandon Dixon and Balls had a hit and an RBI while scoring a run of his own, while Eric “Violent J” Jagielo had a hit and walked once.

UP NEXT: Pensacola is off tomorrow.

Brevard County Manatees 3, Daytona Tortugas 4 (F/12)

“Jonathon Craword” pitched fairly well, all things considered (considering he’s a figment of your imagination, that is), in his start for the Baby Turtles, allowing 4 hits, 2 earned runs, and 1 walk, striking out 3 in 5 innings pitched. Michael Sullivan pitched 2 innings of this long game, allowing a home run (1 ER), and striking out 2. Nolan Becker, Jimmy Herget, and Alex Powers combined for 6 innings, 5 hits, and 5 Ks (no walks, no earned runs) to lock it down for the Tortugas.

Juan “Duran” Duran was hungry like a wolf and ate 3 hits in 6 tries, collecting a run scored and an RBI, which was the winning damn run in the walk off. Brian “Beef” O’Grady picked up 3 hits of his own, including a double AND a triple, scoring a run. Aristides Aquino mashed a 2 run dinger.

UP NEXT: Daytona goes against Dunedin, but no one’s listed to pitch, so I’ll assume that pitching machines are getting the call for this one at 6:30pm EDT.

Fort Wayne TinCaps 0, Dayton Dragons 6

Austin “City Limits” Orewiler was straight gas in this one. He only went 5 innings, but allowed only 2 hits and 1 walk, while striking out 9. Sandy “Hocking” Lugo went 2 IP, allowed 2 hits and struck out 2. Danny Tanner Rainey went 1 IP, allowing a hit and a run and struck out 2. Lucas “Scott” Benenati pitched an inning of 1 hit, 1 K ball.

Nick Senzel picked up another hit and 2 walks, but Chris “A” Okey powered the Dragons offense with 2 doubles, 2 RBI and a walk. Daniel Sweet “Tooth” provided 2 other RBI with his hit.

UP NEXT: Wendolyn Bautista will look to WIN-dolyn agains the TinCaps at 7:00pm EDT.

Billings Mustangs 12, Idaho Falls Chukars 5

Scott “Randy” Moss started this one, went 4.2 innings, scattered 4 hits, allowed 2 earned, walked 3, and struck out 2. Andy “Big” Cox went 0.2 innings, allowing a hit and 2 walks. Keenen “Give Me A” Kish struck out 2 and walked 1 in 1.2 innings. Brian “Big Game” Hunter relieved Kish and wasn’t particularly good at it. He allowed 4 hits and 3 earned runs in 0.2 innings of work. He’s got a Simon-esque 40.50 ERA on the Billings season. Joel “Slyde” Kuhnel picked up the 1.1 inning save, allowing only 1 hit and striking out 1.

For the offense, well, just assume everyone did pretty damn well, as the Mustangs picked up 22 hits on the night. TJ Friedl tripled and walked and scored a run. Jose Siri hit a triple as part of a 3 hit, 2 run scored night. Taylor Trammell had 3 hits, 2 RBIs and scored 2 runs. And that’s just the first 3 in the order, so go on and click that link up there to catch up on all the action.

UP NEXT: Ian Kahaloa goes tonight at Idaho Falls, first pitch at 9:15pm EDT.

AZL Reds 5, AZL Dodgers 3

Luis Alecis had a day for the AZLiens, pitching 5 innings, allowing only 3 hits, 1 ER, 1 walk, striking out 8 along the way. Miguel Aguilar was less good, giving up 2 runs in 1 inning of work. Dauri Moreta allowed only 1 hit and 2 walks in 2.2 innings, where he fanned 6. Carlos “Macho” Machorro pitched a flawless 0.1.

JD “Sherwin” Salmon-Williams had a night. The Painter smacked 2 dingers, collecting 3 RBI on a 3-3 night. Edgar Herrera mashed a 2 run dinger of his own and also walked and, let me do the math... yep that’s all the scoring for the Baby Reds.

UP NEXT: Balls will be based when the AZL Reds take on the AZL White Sox at 10:00pm EDT.
