This is one of the worst cumulative performances we've seen from the Reds farmhands in 2013.

Armando Galarraga climbed the hill for the Bats and went 6 innings surrendering all 4 runs, 3 earned in Louisville's 4-3 loss.
He allowed 6 his and 4 walks before making way for Curtis Partch for 2 scoreless and Kevin Whelan nada in the ninth.

Louisville's bat's were guano tonight, managing only 7 hits and striking out 10 times. The "leaders"
Soto- 2-4
Phipps- 2-4, HR
Burriss- 1-3
Fellhauer- 1-4, 2B, RBI
HRod- 1-5
Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy- 0-4, BB SB#25

Former Red and current Pawtucket Red Sock Drew Sutton was 0-4.

If Louisville's bat's were guano, then the Dayton offense was a compost heap on a 100 degree day. The White CAPS of West Michigan were victorious in a 5-2 finale.
"Everybody Loves" Sal Romano went 5.2 giving up 4 earned on only 3 hits and 3 walks. He also struck out 4. He was doomed by a three run tah-tah.
Austin Salter worked 2.1 allowing 1 ER. Jesus Adames trotted out for the nightcap and struck out 2.
Dayton's mighty sluggers produced the following highlights:
Amaral and Rahier were 2-4, Terry, Winker, Big Hyphen, and Superfluous J add a hit apiece.
Winker with the only RBI. None of the hits were for extra bases

If Dayton's offense was hot compost, then Pensacola's was a dumpster fire.
Former Red's affiliate Chattanooga administered the heavy sack beating in this 1-0 debacle.
Ryan Dennick is pinned with the loss after a very strong 6 innings of 6 hit, 5K, 1BB, 1ER baseball.
Ravin followed with 1.1 scoreless and .2 with a walk for Manno.
The Stalwart Blue Wahoos hitters managed 3 hits and 2 walks. The stars were Lohman, Mattair, and Ryan "Don't Call Me Hedley" LaMarre with a mighty single each.

Bakersfield and Stockton are locked up in a 0-0 battle thru 5. James Allen is on the bump providing another solid effort. His line so far is 5IP 2H 1BB 4K.

Wright and Waldrop have singles. YRod with a two-bagger.

Blaze go down in flames, 3-2.
I mention that James Allen is having a standout night and he proceeds to head to the mound for his next half inning and give up 2BB 2H and 3ER without recording an out.
Moran and Pinckard finish it out with 2 apiece giving up 1 and 2 hits, respectively while striking out 2 and 1.

The sticks weren't much more active here than anywhere else in Reds' kiddieland
YRod- 2-4 2B, run
Marquez Smith- 2-3, BB, 2B
Ryan Wright- 1-4
Waldrop- 1-3 RBI
Juan Duran- 1-4 2B, run
Yovan Gonzalez- 1-3 2B

I think this is definitely the worst night of the year on the old back 40. The only possibly options for MiLPotD are Ryan Dennick or Dennis Phipps.
