Farmers Only: Tony Santillan Is Pretty Cool

Gavin LaValley also goes deep once again.

Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Night

Tony Santillan - 8 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

You know, I usually don’t like to give much accolade to pitchers that aren’t racking up the strikeout numbers. However, Santillan hasn’t had an issue with that all year. His biggest bugaboo throughout his career has been control and limiting walks. We’re seeing what is yet another start that shows Santillan might be figuring out the finer things of the game. That’s really great to see, and its inspiring for his future.

Louisville Bats 4, Indianapolis Indians 3

Justin “Nicotine” Nicolino was ok in his start. He allowed 3 earned runs over 6 innings on 5 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Domingo “Fishy” Tapia (0 K), Tanner “Have You Ever Seen The” Rainey (3 K), and Kevin “Mallard” Quackenbush (2 K) all pitched scoreless innings out of the pen. Dilson Herrera was 2 for 3 with a walk and a double, and Joe “Budson” Hudson was 2 for 3 with a walk and a RBI. Cliff “Biff” Pennington walked twice.

The Bats will play at 7:00 PM ET.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 3, Birmingham Barons 16

Oooof. Jesus “Wept” Reyes got lit up. He allowed 7 earned runs over 3.0 innings on 7 hits, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts, and 2 homers. The bullpen was awful. Luis “MVP” Gonzalez was 2 for 4 with a solo dinger, and Gavin “DEEP IN” LaValley was 1 for 2 with a 2-run dinger and 2 walks. That’s pretty much it.

TBD is on the mound at 7:05 PM CT.

Daytona Tortugas 0, Tampa Tarpons 2

Tony “The Tiger” Santillan was fantastic once again even if he didn’t seem to have the strikeout pitch working. He pitched 8 scoreless innings on 4 hits, 1 walk, and 2 strikeouts. That’s pretty sweet. Aaron “I” Fossas “My Teef” pitched 2 perfect innings of relief. TJ “You Got A” Friedl “In Me” was 1 for 4 with a walk.

TBD is on the mound at 7:00 PM ET.

Dayton Dragons 5, Cedar Rapids Kernels 4

Adrian Rodriguez was solid in his start. He allowed 2 earned runs over 6 innings on 4 hits, 1 walk, and 5 strikeouts. Ryan “Nutella” Nutof pitched 2 scoreless (1 run was unearned) and struck out 5. He did allow 4 hits and 2 walks which is really not good. John Ghyzel pitched a scoreless inning with 2 strikeouts. Leandro “Carlos” Santana went 2 for 4 with a solo dinger, and Narciso Crook hit a 2-run dinger. Jeter “Re2pect” Downs also went 3 for 5 with a RBI.

Packy Naughton takes the mound at 7:00 PM ET.
