Farmers Only: Aristides Aquino Drops The Hammer

New, 6 comments

Everything else was pretty sucky/boring.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds-Media Day Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville Bats - One win, two losses (27-42 overall)

  • Lucas Sims - 7.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
  • Sal Romano - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
  • Jimmy Herget - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
  • Aristides Aquino - 4 for 11, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 1 BB
  • Christian Colon - 3 for 9, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB
  • Rob Refsnyder - 5 for 12, 3 2B, 2 RBI

The weekend, like much of the season was quite the bummer for the Bats. Lucas Sims puts up a great start on Friday night, and Aristides Aquino is literally tearing the freaking cover off the ball. However, the rest of the pitching, including Tony Santillan was rather ho hum. What we see is what we tend to get from the Bats. There are some exciting players around but overall the team is sub par.

Chattanooga Lookouts - One win, three losses (36-33 overall)

  • Johendi Jiminian - 5.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
  • Ty Boyles - 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
  • Jesse Stallings - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
  • Joel Kuhnel - 2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
  • Wyatt Strahan - 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Alfredo Rodriguez - 7 for 17, 2 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI
  • Gavin LaValley - 5 for 13, 1 RBI, 1 BB

The Lookouts have been kind of sliding lately. They played a double header on Saturday but overall it was also a bad weekend for Chattanooga. The bullpen for the most part was decent, as you’ll see above, but the starting pitching was meh and the hitting was really worse. I struggled to find guys to really highlight. Brantley Bell did hit a dinger on Saturday, his fifth of the year, but he didn’t do anything in the other three games. Taylor Trammell only played on Friday night.

Daytona had their All-Star weekend so they had zero games. Scooter Gennett will be making his first rehab appearance for the Tortugas on Monday at 7:05 PM ET.

Dayton Dragons - One win, two losses (28-42 overall)

  • Ricky Salinas - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
  • Adrian Rodriguez - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
  • Eduardo Salazar - 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
  • Connor Bennett - 2.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
  • Moises Nova - 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
  • Randy Ventura - 4 for 7, 1 RBI

Again, another uninspiring showing from another minor league team this weekend. The pitching held up, anchored by a damn good start by Ricky Salinas, but there was literally not offense. Miles Gordon knocked in three with a double on Saturday but that was straight up it.

Billings Mustangs - Three Losses (0-3 overall)

  • Justin McGregor - 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
  • Jeffry Nino - 1.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
  • Miguel Medrano - 5 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
  • Andrew McDonald - 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
  • Alberto Gonzalzez - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
  • Omar Conoropo - 3 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
  • Francis Peguero - 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
  • Manuel Cachutt - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
  • Leonardo Seminati - 5 for 12, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB
  • Jonathan Willems - 5 for 12, 1 2B, 1 3B,
  • Edwin Yon - 4 for 9, 1 2B, 2 RBI

Well, getting swept on your opening weekend is not good. The pitching outside of some outliers wasn’t bad. Again, just like every other team there was very little offense. Seems to be an organizational slump at this point. The trickle down factor. I blame Reagan.

The Greeneville Reds will get crack-a-lackin on Monday with their season opener at 6:30 PM ET.
