The Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Night
Austin Orewiler - 4.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K
On a night where we were all watching Hunter Greene (who pitched well) it was Austin Orewiler that stole the show. 8 K’s in 4.2 innings freaky damn good. I don’t have much else to go with this, and I feel like I need to write a full paragraph for emphasis. My 7th grade English teacher, Mrs. Hurliss, must be so ashamed of me. I also spelled her name wrong. Whatevs.
Louisville, don’t play baseball in Buffalo. We need to see Nick Senzel.
Pensacola Blue Wahoos 4, Mississippi Barves 9
Vladimir “Vlad Goots” Gutierrez was perfectly serviceable in this start. He struck out 6 with no walks over 6 innings while giving up 3 earned runs. Nick “Donghi” Longhi long dingered on the night, and it was a two run shot. Luis “Yankee Killer” Gonzalez was 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. There wasn’t much else to speak of.
Jesus Reyes is on the mound at 7:00 PM CT.
Daytona Tortugas 0, Tampa Tarpons 12
Yak. YAAAAAAAAAK. If I didn’t have delicious beer in my belly as I wrote this, I’d almost be tempted to retch in a trash can. Don’t waste beer, peeps. Scott Moss gave up 8 earned runs over 3.2 innings but he did walk only 1 to 7 strikeouts. 10 hits and 3 homers will do ya in though. Juan “Huan” Martinez struck out 2 in 2 scoreless. Dilson Herrera singled and walked. He’s been doing better after a real slow start.

Dayton Dragons 4, South Bend Flubs 1
Y’all know you were checking in for this game specifically because Hunter Greene was pitching. You’re all a bunch of good plebs. Greene did have a long stretch between starts and didn’t pitch long. He went 2.1 innings and gave up 3 hits, a walk, but did strike out three. He allow no runners to cross the plate. He also hit 101 MPH on the gun. Apparently, that’s the fastest in Dayton history outside of rehab stint from Aroldis Chapman. Greene also hit a batter with the pitch. Ouch. Austin “1984” Orewiler basically took a start as well and struck out 8 over 4.2 innings. He didn’t walk a batter, gave up 2 hits, and only allowed 1 run. Ryan “Fuck Off” Nutof struck out 1 in a scoreless inning of relief, and Sarkis “Shark Kiss” Ohanian did the same to pick up the save. Jeter “Jeets” Downs walked twice, and Stuart “Little” Fairchild went 1 for 3 with a RBI and a walk. I’m liking what Fairchild is putting down so far. John “Say It Ain’t” Sansone hit a two-run totdish to lead the Dragons to glory. I also gotta give credit to Montrell “We Are” Marshall for walking twice if I did the same for Jeets.
Our favorite, Packy Naughton, will be on the mound at 7:00 PM ET.
