AAA - Louisville visits Indianapolis. Just about set to kick things off.
Jeff Francis takes the ball for the Bats. Okay year so far for Francis. I bet he wishes that he opted out when he had a chance at the end of Spring Training.

AA - Mississippi travels to Pensacola. Game will start in about one hour. J.C. Sulbaran hoping to get back on the good foot tonight.

High A

Thirsty Thursday in Bakersfield as they host San Jose. Early returns are the fans are upset that Tony Cingrani is going for the Blaze. He usually makes quick work of the opposing team so it is hard to hustle out for a quick cold one. Game starts at 7:30 PDT.

Low A - Dayton travels to Lansing. Game almost underway. Dan Jensen (2.43) working the bump tonight.

Somehow, I don't feel that long concession lines are a big problem at Sam Lynn Ballpark.

Is this the Reds last year there? Don't they work on two-year contracts?

Francis did well tonight: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K. It's 1-1 in the 10th. Dioner Navarro has a couple hits for the Bats.

Louisville is an offensive powerhouse. Just wait until Joey Gathright gets there. Break up the Bats!

If Gathright gets added to the roster I wonder who gets subtracted?

If Partch was still in Bakersfield he would have to pitch on every home Thursday.

The curiously spelled Yordanys Perez has a 2-run HR and Pensacola leads 3-2 after six. Sulbaran went 5.2.

David Vidal making a slow adjustment to AA.

Dayton succumbs 5-2. Kurt Muller with two more hits. He is batting .538.

Dan Jensen walked six in 4 IP tonight, which is something you can't do if you pitch for the Dayton Dragons. Adding in the efforts of James Allen and El'Hajj Muhammad, Dayton pitchers walked an even dozen.

10 hits and 12 walks and they only scored 5. Crazy.

Francis and Navarro are the two veterans I'm really glad we have down in Louisville. If a starting pitcher goes down with a minor injury, I think Francis could hold the fort down for a few starts.

Also, Navarro would be a solid No. 2 catcher if something were to happen to Hanigan or Mesoraco.

He'll be back in Bakersfield once Henry Rodriguez comes off the DL for Pensacola.

Didi Gregorius in a free-fall at the plate. Down to .269. Although he does have an RBI single tonight. 4-2 Blue Wahoos in the 7th.

Donnie Joseph comes on in the top of the 8th with the bases loaded and one out. Gets a force out at home and a strike out. Holds them to no runs. 4-2 Blue Wahoos headed to the bottom of the 8th.

Joseph has established himself as a stud prospect once again. Wow he is having a great year (ERA down to 0.38).

The Indianapolis-Louisville game has gone on so long that Joey Gathright has made it to the park and is in the game. He singled to leadoff the top half of the 12th. Seven fans are still in attendance. But to be fair all seven are sleeping soundly.

Bill Rhinehart threw a runner out at the plate to end the 11th and keep the game going.

They moved Gathright all the way around to third. For Louisville, that qualifies as a big inning.

Yep, with the aid of a wild pitch. Why do you bunt Gathright over when he should be able to steal? Maybe his legs were a little rubbery from travelling all day.

Which game gets over first? Louisville's or Bakersfield's?

Through one inning the Bakersfield Blaze are up 1-0 on a Donald Lutz HR.

Joseph gets a 1.2-inning save, with 3 K. Pensacola wins 4-2.

Fellhauer (2B) and Yordanys (HR) each with 2 hits for the Hoos.

Top of the 14th and Gathright draws a one-out walk. You can't stop him; you can only hope to contain him.

Bakersfield still leading 1-0 in the top of the 3rd.

To no avail.

Man, you hate to waste a 2-hit night by Kris Negron.

Cingrani must be pitching right-handed. San Jose just scored 2 on him in the third. Only one was earned, but he's given up 5 hits and only struck out one.

Not only is he pitching right handed, he is also telling them what pitch he will be throwing..... underhand.

Poor Cody Puckett is now 0 for 7. And he hasn't even struck out.

The last time Louisville scored, Ron Paul was still a factor.

Jordan Smith just allowed a one out triple in the bottom of the 15th.

Indianapolis singled home the run in the bottom of the 15th to put Louisville away and win the game 2-1.
