Louisville 5 – Lehigh Valley 1

Drew Anderson hit his 3rd homerun of the season and went 2-3 with a run scored and 2 rbis to lead the Bats to the win.  Chris Dickerson also went 2-3 and scored a run, drove in a run, and added a double.  Luis Bolivar added an rbi of his own.

Daryl Thompson got the start and was his usual brilliant self.  Thompson improved to 2-0 in Louisville by going 7 innings, allowing 1 run on 6 hits and no walks while striking out 6.  At 2 levels, Daryl has allowed 13 earned run in 75.1 innings pitched this season.

Chattanooga 8 – Huntsville 6; game 1

In game 1 of the doubleheader, Eric Eymann was a perfect 4-4, hitting 4 singles, scoring a run, and driving in 2.  Chris Valaika, Cody Strait, Justin Turner, and B.J. Szymanski had 2 hits each and combined to go 8-15 with 3 rbis, 5 runs scored, and a double.

Huntsville 2 – Chattanooga 0; game 2

I mentioned all offense in game 1 because in game 2, the Lookouts were no-hit!  Travis Wood pitched well, but received no help.  Wood went 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5.  (*Keep in mind that doubleheaders consist of just 7 innings, not 9 in the minors)

Sarasota 8 – Lakeland 2

The Reds scored 4 runs in the 3rd inning and never looked back.  Jose Castro, Chris Heisey, and Jacob Kahaulelio each recorded 2 hits in the game.  Castro and Justin Tordi hit their first homeruns of the season.  Heisey added a double and 2 runs scored and Kahaulelio had a double, triple, rbi, and run scored.

Alexander Smit improved to 5-4 by allowing 1 run on 6 hits in 6 innings pitched.  He walked 2 and struck out 8.

West Michigan 10 – Dayton 6

Angel Cabrera went 3-4 with a double to improve his average to .247 on the season.  Justin Reed went 2-3 with a triple, 2 runs scored, and 2 rbis.  Finally, Jason Bour went 2-3 with a run scored.

The pitching in this one was bad for the Dragons.  Even Joseph Krebs, who had been pretty solid this season, was roughed up.  Krebs gave up 3 runs on 7 hits in 3 innings pitched.  Coming into the game, Krebs had only allowed 5 earned runs in 26.2 innings pitched.
