Shed Long - 2 for 5, HR, 2 RBI

Not the best line of the night, but helped his team win the game and gives me an opportunity to talk about him a little bit. With Senzel unfortunately out of the picture until next year, there’s been talk of it being a big opportunity for Dilson Herrera to turn some heads, there could be some room for Shed to break his way into the conversation as well with a big July. His .274 average might not stand out that much, but his on-base percentage has held strong at .367 so far this year. That’s matched at Louisville only by two players, Nick Senzel (duh) and Dilson Herrera (of course). Keep an eye on Shed.

Louisville Bats 2, Toledo Mud Hens 3

The story of this one was Homer Bailey’s rehab start, which actually didn’t go as badly as most expected. Bailey went 7 innings and only gave up the 3 runs, all on solo homers. He also didn’t walk anybody, which is a great sign. The offense was pretty stagnant, though, with Josh VanMeter as the only bat to record multiple hits. Dilson Herrera was 0-for-4 to break his 8-game hit streak.

Cody Reed takes the bump in Toledo at 7:05 PM ET.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos 10, Mississippi Braves 5

Holy offense! All Wahoo position player starters recorded a hit, with TJ Friedl, “Get off of the” Shed Long, Taylor Sparks, and Chris Okey having multi-hit games. Long smacked his 7th dinger of the year. “Oh yeah, that” Daniel Wright pitched 4 innings and gave up 3 runs, none of them earned.

The Wahoos start at 7:35 PM ET, playing Mississippi again.

Daytona Tortugas 9, Clearwater Threshers 3

Taylor Trammell and Randy Ventura led the way with 3 hits each, and Brantley Bell and Ibandel Isabel homered. That’s Isabel’s 17th of the year, which leads the FSL. Wennington Romero got the start and went 5 innings, giving up 2 runs (1 earned). Not a bad night all around.

The Tortugas take on the Florida Fire Frogs at the very specific 6:31 PM ET.

Dayton Dragons 6, South Bend Cubs 5

Despite a rough start by Tyler Mondile, the Dayton bullpen was the story of this one, only giving up 1 run in 6 innings of relief work to hold the victory. Raul “Sheed” Wallace was 2-for-3 with his first homer of the year, and Jose Garcia and J.D. Williams added two hits each. “Yeah, Jeets” Downs was 0-for-3, but walked twice.

Adrian Rodriguez takes the mound in South Bend at 7:35 PM ET.

Billings Mustangs 9, Helena Brewers 1

Jared Solomon was fantastic in his start, going 6 innings of 3-hit shutout ball. He walked one and struck out seven, and was just plain dominant in this game. Dylan “ManBearPig” Harris was 4-for-5 with 3 RBI, and Bren “Danukkah” Spillane hit his 2nd homer of the year.

Luis Alecis pitches at 7:05 PM MT, as the ‘Stangs take on Helena again at home.

Greeneville Reds 2, Bluefield Blue Jays 4

Josiah Gray has been good so far this year, but didn’t have his best stuff in this one. Gray only lasted 3 innings, giving up 4 runs (3 earned), and had 1 strikeout. Jonathan Willems “Dafoes” had two doubles, and Zeke White was 2-for-4 with a RBI. Reliever love to Alexis Diaz, who struck out 6 in his 4 innings of scoreless relief.

Miguel Medrano gets the ball at 7 PM ET against Bluefield.

Li’l Reds 10, D-Babies 11

The Li’l Reds overcame a 7-run deficit but fell just short in the 9th. Daniel De La Fuente gave up 5 runs in 3 innings, only 3 of them earned. On the offensive side, Reyny “Olmedo” Reyes was 3-for-4 with a double and a run batted in, and Danny Lantigua drove in 3 runs, including his 2nd homer of the year. Debby “Downer” Santana had his 2nd homer of the year in his one too, ensuring that Dat Dude is still a fan.

The Baby Reds take on the Baby M’s at 7 PM PT.
