Considering the way things shook down in DC last night, here’s hoping the farm was productive.

Wait. Only 1-3? They won one game? Well, at least the Dayton Dragons beat the Peoria Chiefs. Isn’t Peoria the MWL affiliate for the Cards? Affirmative. Moral victory on top of that?

Louisville Bats

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Gwinnett (11-11) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 7 1
Louisville (10-11) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0

W: Russell, An (2-3, 3.72) ; L: Partch (0-1, 4.50) ; SV: Rasmus, C (4)

Chad Reineke: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 SO

Would have been nice to get a win for Reineke considering the effort he manufactured on this night. Wasn’t meant to be. Sure, Billy Hamilton stole his 14th base of the season, but that was about it for the Bats in this one.

Next Game: tonight v. Gwinnett, 6:35 PM ET. As of this time, no formal announcement has been made on tonight’s starter.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Pensacola (9-11) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 8 0
Tennessee (12-9) 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 X 2 6 0

W: Beeler (2-2, 3.16) ; L: Dennick (1-1, 2.74) ; SV: Schlitter (1)

Ryan LaMarre: 2-4, R
Ryan Dennick: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 SO

Dennick sort of suffered the same fate as Reineke…lack of offense. Kind of a theme developing here.

Next Game: tonight @ Tennessee, 7:15 PM ET. Daniel Renken to take the hill for the Blue Wahoos.

Bakersfield Blaze

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Bakersfield (5-16) 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 3 8 1
High Dessert (11-10) 0 0 1 5 1 0 2 0 X 9 12 0

W: Miller, T (1-3, 7.83) ; L: Robles, T (0-4, 10.42)

Juan Silverio: 2-4, R

Marquez Smith (2) and Kyle Waldrop (3) both homered, but the was pretty much all the offense the Blaze could compile as the Mavericks used a 5-run 4th inning to put this game away early.

Next Game: tonight v. Visalia, 10:15 PM ET. Carlos Contreras gets the start for the Blaze.

Dayton Dragons

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Peoria (8-9) 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 3 0 5 10 2
Dayton (7-13) 1 0 5 2 0 0 3 0 X 11 14 0

W: Romano (2-2, 1.71) ; L: Cuda (1-1, 8.18)

Beau Amaral: 3-5, HR (1), 2 RBI (4), 3 R
Zach Vincej: 2-5, R, SB (6)
Junior Arias: 2-4, 2 RBI (9), 2 SB (9)
Robert Ramirez: 2-4, 2 RBI (8)
Sal Romano: 5 IP, 6 H, R, ER, 2 BB, 3 SO

All those runs! And only one homer, Amaral’s first as a Dragon. And four stolen bases. No question this team will run when presented the opportunity. The Dragons may be last in the MWL in batting average (.214), but they are second in the league in stolen bases (31).

Next Game: tonight v. Peoria, 7:00 PM ET. Robert Stephenson looks to get his first win of 2013.
