Louisville 4 – Buffalo 1

Four batters into the 1st inning, Armando Galarraga took a line drive off his right leg and had to leave the game. Yohan Pino (1-2, 1.23 ERA) entered in relief and held the International League’s best offense scoreless for 6.1 innings. His final line included 4 hits allowed, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.

The Bats scored 3 times in the third inning to take the lead for good. Josh Fellhauer led the offense in hits, going 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored. Billy Hamilton (1-for-5) had an RBI single, a stolen base and later scored in that 3rd inning.

Montgomery 6 – Pensacola 1

Devin Lohman (2-for-4, 2B) was the only Blue Wahoo with more than one hit. Redleg Nation Spotlight Player, Tucker Barnhart also had a double and scored Pensacola’s lone run.

Ryan Dennick (1-2, 3.86 ERA) allowed more than two runs in a start for the first time all year. He allowed 5 runs on 5 hits over 5 innings, while walking 2 and striking out 4.

High A
San Jose 4 – Bakersfield 2

The Blaze outhit San Jose 12 to 8, but a lack of power, a couple of double plays and no free passes limited Bakersfield to just two runs. Five different players had two hits each, all singles.

On the other side of the diamond, a balk from Jon Moscot (0-4, 6.51 ERA) led to an early first inning run and a fielding error led to two unearned runs in the 6th. Moscot allowed two earned runs over 5.2 innings on 8 hits and no walks while striking out 5.

Low A
Clinton 10 – Dayton 5

Ismael Guillon (0-4, 10.07 ERA) control problems continued last night. Four walks (and four strikeouts) in 3 innings pushes his season totals to 30 walks and 30 strikeouts over 19.2 innings. Last season he exhibited much better control, 31/90 BB/K ratio in 75.2 innings.

Junios Arias had another good night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double, a walk a run scored. Nick O’Shea hit a 2-run homerun in the 6th inning, his first longball of the year.
