Farmers Only: Greene Day

Hunter Greene has another solid start in Dayton while Hendrik Clementina continues to hit the ball well.

Hunter Greene - 4.1 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K

Hunter Greene hasn’t had an ideal start to 2018. Pitching against competition roughly four years his senior, he has hit quite a few rough patches, which is to be expected of an 18-year-old at this level. But the kid continues to develop, and for the second time in his last 3 outings he put out another very solid outing. In the longest outing of his young career, he struck out 6 and gave up only one run while hitting triple digits on the gun multiple times. He may hit more of those rough patches as the season goes on, but he continues to show us why he was such a valued prospect in the draft last season.

Louisville Bats 0, Indianapolis Indians 4

The offense was quite offensive for Louisville on Thursday night as they fell 4-0 to Indianapolis. Zach “Stay in the locker room if you want to” Neal started and gave up 4 earned runs on 8 hits with no walks and only 2 strikeouts over 5 innings, bringing his ERA up to a devilish 6.66. I’m sure he would have liked to stay in and get an extra out. Jose “Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello” Rafael De Paula struck out 4 batters in 2 scoreless innings of relief. Chadwick “Piss Tape” Tromp was 2 for 3 and Phil “Phlervin” Ervin was 2 for 4.

Up Next: Anthony DeSclafani will make his third rehab start tonight against Durham at 7:00 PM ET.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 4, Tennessee Smokies 5

A 4-run 9th was able to send the Wahoos to extra innings, but they ultimately lost 5-4 in the 11th. Daniel “Two wrongs don’t make a” Wright gave up 3 runs (2 earned) in 4.1 innings of work. Shed “Love Me” Long “Time” was 1 for 5 with a solo dinger, Taylor “Bubba” Sparks was 2 for 5 with a 2-run dinger, and CJ McElroy was 1 for 1 with a solo dinger.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 7, Tennessee Smokies 5

A 6-run 6th inning helped fuel the Wahoos to a 7-5 win in game 2, ending their 8-game losing streak. Keury “Hella” Mella got rocked, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits with no walks and 4 strikeouts over 4 innings of work. 4 of those 5 runs come off of the 3 home runs he allowed. Juan Martinez struck out 3 in 2 scoreless innings and Brennan “San” Bernardino struck out 2 in his scoreless inning. Gavin “As I walk through” LaValley was 2 for 3 with a double and 1 RBI, Brian “Beef” O’Grady was 1 for 3 with a double and 2 driven in, and Nick “Shedhi” Longhi and CJ McElroy each drove in a pair.

Up Next: Seth Varner makes his first Double-A start tonight at 6:35 PM CT.

Daytona Tortugas 2, St. Lucie Mets 4

Ryan “Twins” Olson started for Daytona last night and gave up 4 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts over 6 innings of work. Taylor “Tyler” Trammell was 1 for 3 with a solo dinger and 2 runs scored. He is now hitting .298/.411/.490 in Daytona this season. Yes Please. Tyler “Taylor” Stephenson was 1 for 4 with a double and Nariso “You’re a” Crook was also 1 for 4 with a double.

Up Next: TBD starts tonight for Daytona at 7:05 PM ET.

Dayton Dragons 2, Lake County Captains 1

Dayton used a clutch hit by Hendrik “Oh, My Darling” Clementina to defeat Lake County 2-1 on Thursday. Hunter Greene got the start and pitched well, going 4.1 innings and giving up an earned run on 4 hits with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. He also reportedly hit 100 mph multiple times in the longest outing of his young career. Giggity. Hendrik Clementina continues to mash. He went 2 for 3 and had the deciding 2-RBI double in the 6th. That raises his line to .354/.435/.727 on the season. Miles “Flash” Gordon was 2 for 4 on the night and Montrell Marshall reached base 3 times, going 1 for 2 with 2 walks and a run scored.

Up Next: Andrew Jordan pitches tonight at 7:35 PM ET.
