Triple – A

Louisville 6 – Toledo 5; final 11

Drew Stubbs went 3-5 with a double, run scored, and 2 rbis.  He was in the leadoff spot.  I don’t know if that is significant, I’m just saying!  Eric Eymann went 2-5 with a double, run scored, and 2 rbis.

Starter Ben Jukich pitched 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks.  Jukich struck out 9.  Jeff Kennard picked up his 3rd win in relief, despite giving up 3 unearned runs.  Fortunately, the Bats capitalized on 4 unearned runs late themselves to give Jeff the win.

Double – A

Carolina 5 – Chattanooga 4; final 13

The Mudcats managed only 5 hits, but that was enough to pick up the win in extra innings.  Juan Francisco went 3-6 with a homerun, double, 3 rbis, and a run scored.  The homerun was Juan’s 19th of the season.  Stephen Chapman had only 1 hit in 5 at-bats, but it was a 2 run homer, his 4th of the season.

Redleg Nation Spotlight Player Matt Klinker pitched 6 strong innings, allowing just 1 run on 4 hits and 3 walks while striking out 8.  He now posts a 2.95 ERA in Carolina.  Jerry Gil picked up the win in relief to improve his record to 2-1 in Carolina.  I’m not sure how Gil can win a game in which he pitches 1.1 innings, allows 1 run on no hits and 5 WALKS!  In 24.1 innings pitched, Gil has walked 29 batters compared  to just 12 strikeouts.  He has allowed 59 baserunners and has an ERA of 7.03.  When does this experiment end?

    Was at the Dragons game last night, Wiley’s homer run was crushed and went out of the ball park and down the street (ended up under a police car) on a night the ball wasn’t carrying.

    And Todd Benzinger took a page out of the Dusty Baker handbook and had Oliveras in the 3 holes (Billings .270/.326/.352 & Dayton (6 gm. .188/.235/.375). Oliveras also misplayed a ball in the LF corner in the first inning into a triple.
