Louisville Bats vs. Durham Bulls
Pedro Villarreal (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=villar002ped) will make his fifth start for the Bats. Between Louisville and Pensacola, he is 3-3 with a 3.62 ERA and WHIP of 1.089. His most impressive stat is probably his 1.2 BB/9IP. Going against him is the 28-year-old Lance Pendleton (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=pendle001lan).

Pensacola Blue Wahoos @ Jackson Generals - Game 1
Dan Corcino (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=corcin001dan) was supposed to pitch in the rain-out yesterday, but he'll start game one of the double-header instead. He's going against Brandon Maurer (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=maurer001bra), who turns 22 next month.

Pensacola Blue Wahoos @ Jackson Generals - Game 2
This is a guess on my part, but I believe Tim Crabbe (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=crabbe001tim) is starting the second game. It would be his usual four-day rest, and he didn't get out of the third inning in his last appearance, so I think it's a fairly safe bet. I'm guessing the Generals will turn to one of the top prospects in baseball, Taijuan Walker (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=walker001tai).

Bakersfield Blaze @ San Jose Giants
The groundball machine known as Sharky Rogers (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=rogers006cha) is opposing Jack Snodgrass (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=snodgr000ste), the big lefty from Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rogers is tied for the organizational lead in career fielding percentage as he has never made an error as a professional. I'll pull my tongue out of my cheek now and mention that he has shown excellent control this year. In fact, four members of the bullpen have issued more walks than Rogers despite facing significantly less batters.

Dayton Dragons vs. South Bend Silver Hawks
It's Stalin Gerson (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=gerson001sta) versus Jesse Darrah (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=darrah000jes) in one of the least-exciting match-ups I've seen all day. Fresh of their walk-off win from last night, the Dragons will try to improve on their 21-33 record. Interestingly, Darrah had a 10.3 K/9IP for Missoula last year, but this year it has dipped to just 4.4 K/9IP.

The Bats are down 3-1 in the 8th. I must've jinxed Villarreal by mentioning his excellent control because he issued 4 walks in 5.2 IP. Nick Christiani (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=christ001nic) and Josh Judy (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/j/judyjo01.shtml) have combined for 2.1 innings of shutout relief thus far. The Bats are threatening at the moment following a Joey Gathright (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/gathrjo01.shtml) double.

The second game in Jackson is scoreless after four. Mark Serrano (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=serran002mar) got the start, and Stephen Hunt (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=hunt--002ste) has the Wahoos' only hit, a single.

After seven, the Dragons are struggling, but I guess we're used to that. It was 4-3 after the 5th, but they now trail 9-3 in the 8th. Junior Arias (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=arias-001jun) has a home run (2) and walk in the same game, which might be the only time he ever does that as a Dragon. Between Jimmy Moran (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=moran-000jim) and Ryan Kemp (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=kemp--000leo), the bullpen has given up five runs in two innings. Cole Green (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=green-001mit) is now in to hopefully stop the bleeding.

camisadelgolf
06-01-2012, 09:49 PM
Useless trivia time: Mark Serrano is currently the Reds' 7th-oldest pitcher to have not played in MLB. Mike Griffin (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=griffi002mic) currently has the honor of being oldest. The youngest is Aroldis Chapman (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/chapmar01.shtml).

camisadelgolf
06-01-2012, 09:53 PM
In Dayton, it looks like no one explained to Cole Green what "stop the bleeding" means. To be fair, bad defense and some unlucky breaks led to him giving up two unearned runs to make it 11-3 in the bottom of the 8th.

06-01-2012, 09:55 PM
The Bats are down to their last out with Felix Perez (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=perez-002fel) up. A grand slam would win it, but the bases are empty.

06-01-2012, 09:56 PM
Carlos Contreras (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=contre003car) will pitch the 9th for the Dragons. They're only down by eight, so this might be considered a moral victory for them.

LOL. Speed on the corners. They throw to first and Bowe comes home safely, Hamilton moves up to second. Bowe steals home. Next pitch Hamilton steals third (59). Speed thrills. 4-4. No outs. Hamilton on third. Lohman hitting.

Really that's because the guys who can get you excited are mostly playing in the low levels. I think once they get to AA/AAA guys like Hamilton, Smith, Lutz Cingrani, Pearl, Stephenson, Garrett and maybe a couple in Dayton (the team I am least familiar with) will start getting everyone more excited. I think one or 2 of them will break out big.

I like Sharky. Great gb/fb ratio. Hopefully he can develop into a bonafide bullpen prospect. Don't know if I see him in the rotation. Partch is an intriguing guy too. Inconsistent.

WP and single? Man, the minor league teams just can't seem to get it going. Chance to take over first the other day(Bakersfield) and they blow it. Now the Hoos lose in extras.

Partch really hasn't been inconsistent as a reliever, I don't think. He had one bad outing, as I recall, but otherwise has been lights-out since he was moved to the bullpen. Now, as a starter, "inconsistent" would have been too kind a word.

Bakersfield scores 3 in the 8th and 2 more in the ninth to whip San Jose 10-4. Billy Hamilton went 2 for 3 with 3 walks and stole 3 bases (58/59/60). James Ewing had 3 hits and drove in five. Theo Bowe had 3 hits as well to push his average up to .409. Bakersfield had 12 hits, drew 9 walks and had one HBP, so baserunners were pretty much the norm all evening. Sharky had the aforementioned 8 Ks and 0 BBs. Michael Griffin pitched two scoreless innings, striking out 3. And Brian Pearl pitched a perfect ninth.

Billy'l OBP is now above .400 again in June. This is huge because he started out strong the first time through the league, slumped a little he never fell below a .300 average though during his 2nd time through when teams had film on him. Now his 3rd time through he is making changes to their changes, this shows he is a legit star. Also with Lutz being out Hamilton is the star for the Blaze and everybody knows who he is. I really look for a midseason promotion to AA.

One question how does he do with breaking stuff?

It doesn't show any such thing. We don't know what it tells us.
