For games played 4/6/2013

Minor League Player of the Day: 2010’s 6th round pick, Andrew Cisco, picked up his first win and continued where he left off at Billings last season. He threw 6 innings, allowing only 3 hits and a walk, while striking out 8. The run came on a solo homer.

Louisville 6 – Toledo 4

For the second day in a row, the Bats prevaled 6-4. Recently designated 2B Jason Donald was the offensive star for the Bats, going 4-5 with 2 doubles, he also made his second error of the young season.

Billy Hamilton did not play.

6’7″ RH starter Greg Reynolds had a rough start, going 4 innings allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks. Chad Reineke got the win, throwing 4 hitless/scoreless innings, allowing a walk and striking out 4. Justin Freeman picked up his first AAA save, in a shaky inning, allowing 2 hits and a run.

Tennessee 9 – Pensacola 1 12 innings

Tim Crabbe had a nice start, going 5 innings allowing 1 run (solo homer) on 2 hits, walking 2 and striking out 5. Yohan Pino followed him with another very good outing, 3 IP 0 R 1 H 1 BB 2 K. Drew Hayes and Curtis Partch also threw scoreless innings.

Left hander Lee Hyde didn’t fair as well. After throwing a scoreless 11th, he pitched to 7 batters in the 12th and didn’t retire anyone. He ended up giving up 7 runs (6 earned) in the inning. Josh Ravin came in and in 2/3 of an inning, allowed 2 hits and a run of his own. Logan Ondrusek came in and got the final out.

But it shouldn’t have come to that, there wasn’t a lot of offense from the Wahoos last night. They only collected 5 hits in 12 innings, none for extra bases. The only person with a multi-hit night was LF Steve Selsky, who went 2-4 with a walk.

Delino DeShields rested Donald Lutz and Tucker Barnhart (after multi-hit games?) Saturday.

Stockton 7 – Bakersfield 3

The Blaze continue to search for their first win, as they lose their third in a row to the Ports.

Michael Gilmartin, who played for Stockton last season, went 2-4 in the leadoff spot with a homer in his first action of the young season.

Bad night for the Blaze pitching staff also, as Jon Moscot got his first start and gave up 4 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks (did strike out 4) in 3 2/3 of action. Jake Johnson followed him to the hill and gave up two runs on 4 hits in 2.1 innings. Jimmy Moran finished up with 2 innings, giving up a run on 2 hits (striking out 4).
