Below AAA, Buck is one of the more intriguing pitchers. He's now two years removed from his injury right?

Could be a big year for him. Or he could go all Travis Chick on us.

Chick had a decent year at AA last year, and i believe I read he's available.

I'd love to see something from Buck. But I am sure not expecting anything.

I'm going to miss the beginning of the Bats game. :-(

Just for fun, I'm setting the over/under on Woods' IP tonight at 7 2/3.

Dorn sure is getting a lot of time at 1B.

I think they are showcasing him as a power bat.

OnBaseMachine
04-09-2010, 06:38 PM
The Bats went down scoreless in the first inning. Chris Burke walked, Cozart grounded into a DP, Heisey walked, and Frazier grounded out. The Bats are facing Phil Dumatrait.

With two outs, Drew Sutton and Chris Valaika singled but Wilkin Castillo grounded out to end the threat. No score after 1 1/2. Valaika is off to a nice start.

Wood K's Ryan Strieby to begin the bottom of the 2nd inning. Four straight K's for Wood to open the game.

Louisville is threatening in the top of the 3rd. Burke walked for the second time, Cozart sacrificed him to second base, and Heisey then walked for the second time. Two on, one out for Todd Frazier.

Successful double steal by Burke/Heisey.

OnBaseMachine

RBI groundout by Frazier gives Louisville a 1-0 lead. Dorn followed with a walk.

Matt Fairel threw a 1-2-3 first inning for Lynchburg.

Wood allows back to back singles to open the third inning then records his 7th strikeout. One out in the inning.

Wood allows an unearned run and then gets a groundout to end the inning.

Dorn sure is getting a lot of time at 1B.

I think they are showcasing him as a power bat.

Or they could just want to get Alonso time in LF while keeping Dorn in the lineup.

Wood: 4 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 K. Not sure how those two runs are earned. Drew Sutton made an error with one out that eventually led to those two runs scoring.

OK, the boxscore has been corrected. All five of those runs against Wood are unearned.

His updated line: 4 IP, 7 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K

A handful of those hits came after the error.

That's funny. He walks his brother.

Kingspoint
04-09-2010, 08:34 PM
Or they could just want to get Alonso time in LF while keeping Dorn in the lineup.

Maybe Wood's thinking that if he doesn't let anyone play Defense, then Alonso (when Alonso gets up there) ends the game without any errors.

Talk about making a case for being recalled before Chapman!

Came home and checked the boxscores, and I was very happy to see Mez hitting, Buck pitching well (and efficient, 65 pitches in 6 innings), and Coddington pitching well.

Mez also threw out his one attempted base stealer, a guy with 30 steals last year.

I am very encouraged by Mesoraco's performance tonight. He is the player I would most like to see succeed in the minor leagues. I know he is repeating a level, but if he can succeed here he might be in line for a mid-season call-up.

Keep it up, Mes!

For some reason I can't edit this, but I obviously meant to say Coddington showing power, not pitching well.
