Raising Reds: Bats Split, Blaze Burn Mavericks

Yesterday, the farm had a total of five games including the Bats participating in a double header. Only grabbed a couple of wins and a pair of highly thought of pitchers continue to scratch their ways through the 2013 season.

Louisville Bats

Game 1 – Bats 8, Braves 5 (Box)

GAME 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 R H E
Louisville (22-22) 2 2 1 2 1 0 0 8 11 0
Gwinnett (16-29) 3 0 0 0 1 0 1 5 9 0

W: Partch (1-1, 5.40) ; L: Gilmartin (2-3, 4.23)
HR: LOU: Soto, N (4) , Rodriguez, H (3) , Phipps (3) . GWN: Boggs (4)

This was hardly a pitcher’s dream. Louisville cracked 3 home runs en route to the victory with Neftali Soto lighting up for a Bats blast since being optioned back to the Bats after a very brief stint with the Reds.

Game 2 – Bats 2, Braves 5 (Box)

GAME 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 R H E
Louisville (22-23) 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 10 1
Gwinnett (17-29) 0 2 1 0 2 0 X 5 6 0

W: Corcoran (2-3, 3.64) ; L: Corcino (2-7, 7.03) ; SV: Loe (1)
HR: GWN: Terdoslavich (8) .

No sweep for the Bats and Daniel Corcino continues his struggles. He went 4.2 innings and allowed 6 hits and 5 runs (3 earned). He also walked 6 and struck out only 2. Corcino threw 101 pitches. Neftali SOso drove in one of the Bats runs as he went 2-4 and Billy Hamilton and scored both Bats runs.

Next Game: 5/21 @ Gwinnett, 6:05 PM ET. Chad Reineke (3-3, 4.10 ERA) gets the start for Louisville.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos

BayBears 4, Blue Wahoos 2 (Box)

TEAM 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Mobile (22-22) 0 2 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 4 5 1
Pensacola (16-26) 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 2 10 1

W: Bolsinger (3-0, 3.54) ; L: Smith, J (3-4, 3.66) ; SV: Smith, E (3)
HR: MOB: Broxton, K 2 (3)

Keon Broxton put Mobile on his bat and that was all for this one. A pair of two-run homers was the onlyoffense the BayBears needed. Pensacola knocked 10 hits, but were 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.

Next Game: 5/21 v. Mobile. Tim Crabbe (2-2, 2.2.44 ERA) will look to put a halt to a Blue Wahoos three-game losing skid.

Bakersfield Blaze

Mavericks 3, Blaze 5 (Box)

TEAM 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
High Desert (21-23) 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 6 2
Bakersfield (15-29) 0 2 0 7 1 0 0 0 X 10 15 1

W: Contreras (2-4, 3.23) ; L: Landazuri (1-1, 3.86) ; SV: Muhammad (5)
HR: BAK: Wright, R (2)

Sticking Ryan Wright at the top of the order served the Blaze well as the Blaze once again avoid dropping their 30th game of the season. Wright was 3-for-4 with a home run, an RBI and scored twice. Carlos Contreras hurled 5 innings (5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO) for the win.

Bakersfield has won four in a row.

Next Game: 5/21 v. Stockton, 10:30 PM ET. Jake Johnson (3-2, 6.63 ERA) looks to rebound from his last start and keep the winning streak going.

Dayton Dragons

Dragons 1, Silver Hawks 9 (Box)

TEAM 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Dayton (17-27) 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 8 2
South Bend (25-16) 0 4 0 0 2 0 1 2 X 9 10 0

W: Sinnery (1-2, 2.25) ; L: Guillon (1-5, 8.91)
HR: SB: Glenn, A 2 (5)

The chances of taking a rare five-game sweep, which would have been a first in Dragons history, went out the window in the game’s 2nd inning. Ismael Guillon and his struggles continue as the Silver Hawks roughed him up for 6 runs (4 earned) over 4.2 innings. He faced 26 batters and issued 5 walks.

Next Game: 5/22 (Wednesday) v. West Michigan, 7:00 PM ET. Pedro Diaz (0-4, 7.29 ERA) takes the mound at Fifth Third Field in hopes of gaining his first win of the season.
