Louisville Bats

The Bats took the night off.

Carolina 7 – Chattanooga 0

Well, it looks like the Lookouts may have taken the night off as well.  Except they actually had a game.  The team struck out a combined 15 times at the plate and only Shaun Cumberland had a 2 hit night, going 2-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Lee Tabor had a nice relief outing.  Lee threw 2 scoreless innings, scattering 3 hits while striking out 1.  Lee lowered his ERA to 3.68 in 14.2 innings at the Double-A level.

Sarasota 8 – Lakeland 2

The Reds posted a 5 spot in the 8th inning to blow this game open.  Jacob Kahaulelio led the charge by going 2-4 with 4 rbis.  He also hit his 2nd double of the season.  Drew Stubbs also continued some nice hitting, going 2-3 with 2 runs scored and a walk.  Stubbs has a .383 on-base percentage this season in 236 at-bats.  Finally, Juan Francisco went 1-4, hitting his 10th homerun of the season.

Camilo Vazquez improved to 4-2 by pitching 2 scoreless innings of relief.  Vazquez walked 1 and struck out 2.  This was Camilo’s first outing in nearly 2 weeks.

Dayton Dragons

The Dragons are still off for the All-Star break.  In the All-Star game, Joseph Krebs pitched a scoreless inning, allowing a hit.  Luis Montano also pitched a scoreless inning while striking out 2.  Jeff Jeffords pitched .2 scoreless innings, allowing a hit while striking out 1.

The Dragons offensive players had an O’fer night at the plate in the game.


Billings 10 – Missoula 3

The Mustangs had 15 hits and 4 of those were of the homerun variety.  Neftali Solo went 3-5 with 2 homeruns, 4 rbis, and 2 runs scored.  Solo had an impressive start last season for the GCL Reds.  If memory serves me correct, his defense was rather shaky.  Michael Konstanty and Tony Brown each had 2 hits, a homerun, a run scored, and 2 runs batted in.  Matt “The Stiffmeister” Stiffler (sorry for the bad American Pie joke) went 2-4 with a double, rbi, and 2 runs scored.  Alex Buckholz and Tyler Stovall had 3 and 2 hits respectively in 5 at-bats.  Stovall was the Reds 20th round draft pick this year.

Oscar Castro picked up the win in the start by going 6 innings, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk while striking out 5.  Randall Linebaugh, the Reds 37th round draft pick in this year’s draft, pitched 1 scoreless inning, allowing a hit while striking out 2.
