Louisville 11 – Toledo 0

Paul Janish went 2-3 with a double, 3 runs scored, and hit his 7th homerun of the season.  Paul also added 3 rbis.  Chris Dickerson went 3-5 with a double, run scored, and drove in 4 rbis.  Adam Rosales went 3-5 with 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, and an rbi.  Finally, Drew Anderson went 3-5 with a double and an rbi.

Aaron Harang made a rehab start in Louisville last night and pitched great.  Harang went 6 innings, allowing 5 hits while striking out 6.  He did not walk a batter.  Harang only threw 69 pitches over those 6 innings, 46 of which were strikes.

Birmingham 5 – Chattanooga 1 

The Lookouts could only manage 7 singles in the loss while Sean Henry’s lone base hit contributed the 1 rbi in the game.

Pedro Viola made another start in this game.  This is the 2nd time Viola has started this season.  Viola pitched outstanding last season in relief, posting a 1.42 ERA over 3 levels.  He has struggled in relief this season, but now has 2 decent starts under his belt.  In this one, Viola went 5 shutout innings, scattering 4 hits and striking out 4.  Perhaps it is time to start stretching Viola out into a starter.

Fort Myers 3 – Sarasota 2

Logan Parker went a perfect 3-3 at the plate, adding a double and scoring a run.  Jose Castro added a 2-4 game, hitting a double and scoring a run.  The Reds still came out on the short end of this one, despite collecting 10 walks.

Scott Carroll pitched well in the start but received a no decision.  Carroll pitched 6 scoreless innings, scattering 6 hits while walking 1.  He struck out 2.  Joseph Krebs picked up the loss by giving up 2 runs on 4 hits in 1.2 innings of work.

Dayton Dragons

The Dragons had the night off.  Dayton is 25-18 in the second half of the season.  Impressive considering they were 28-40 in the first half.  They are 2 games back in the division for the second half standings.

Billings 10 – Helena 9

Brett Bartles led the Mustangs with 4 hits in 5 at-bats.  Brett also scored two runs.  Cody Puckett, David Sappelt, Tony Brown, Michael Konstanty, Tyler Stovall, and Jose Gualdron had 2 hits each on a night in which the Mustangs tallied 16 base hits.  Brown hit his 10th homerun of the season and drove in 2 rbis, while Konstanty’s two hits were both solo homeruns, giving him 5 dingers on the year.

GCL Reds 4 – GCL Orioles 1

Alexis Oliveras went 3-4, scoring 2 runs.  Humberto Sosa went 2-4, hitting his 3rd homerun of the season and driving in 2 runs. 

Evan Hildenbrandt improved to 3-1 by pitching 6 scoreless innings, surrendering 5 hits while striking out 6.

    I love this feature, but is there a need to put half of it after a jump? Having to click the link to see the rest of the DOTF notes is annoying.

    just my unsolicited two cents…

    Something tells me Dickerson can help.

    Dragons magic number is 23; they lead Fort Wayne by a full five games for the final playoff spot and start a four game series with them tonight at 5/3. Time to wrap it up

    Ordered my playoff tickets last week. Go Dragons!

    Maybe the baby Reds can have a postseason!

    If I’ve got this figured correctly, Matt Klinker starts tonight for Sarasota. I believe he follows Carroll in their rotation.

    I added the jump as a way not to tie up so much space on the front page with this lengthy feature. I know the other contributors do not add the jump, so if the readers would rather there not be one, then your wish is granted!

    The Dragons just announced that Kyle Lotzkar suffered a fracture of the right ulna (elbow bone).
