Louisville has actually been watchable--or followable--for the past week or so. Tonight, the Bats lead 4-1 after four, behind the estimable Ryan Feierabend. Felix Perez and Danny Dorn each has two hits with a 2B. Janish is back in the lineup. Dioner Navarro is hitting cleanup.

Dayton trails 2-1 after five. Daniel Tuttle is pitching pretty well. Kyle Waldrop has a HR.

After a nice first, Cingriani gives up back-to-back-to-back HR to begin the second.

Joey Gathright isn't in the lineup tonight.

I'm guessing he's on his way to NY to meet the Reds.

Stubbs and Heisey both hurt. Stubbs can be put on the DL retroactively and miss a few more games. Gathright provides CF depth.

No?

Joel Guzman homers for Pensacola, which trails 3-1.

Somehow the estimable one, Ryan Feierabend, limited the damage to two earned runs. He pitched 4.1 innings and surrendered eight hits and two walks. Included in that total was a home run. Somehow only one other runner crossed the plate. Wirfin Obispo is on now and has matters well in hand. Obispo has not allowed a hit in his last 7.2 IP.

Incidentally, it would appear that the Bats from Louisville are also fluent in the Parisian dialect.

Weird pitching line for Cingrani so far.

Michael Dennhardt came on and gave up a run in the sixth. Dragons now trail 3-1. Kyle Waldrop knocked one out of the park for Dayton.

Kyle Waldrop tonight has not only homered for Dayton, but is pitching in relief against Louisville.

Danny Dorn was removed from the game, so he could get the call up. I'll find out once Louisville's game is over.

Whoever it is, the implication is that Heisey's going to miss some time and the Reds will add an outfielder from AAA.

Likely. I'd assume it's Dorn now that I knew he was removed half way through the game.

That would make my day, but Dorn is batting right now on milb.tv, so I would have to disagree with you ... Sadly, it was Willie Harris scratched from the lineup.

Dayton scored 3 in the top of the seventh to go up 4-3. Big hit was a double by the hot-hitting Buckley, son of the hot-drafting Buckley.

Way to go, td. Wirf coughed up 4 in the sixth.

Where are you getting this information? Dorn just got a hit, and is running at first.

Well some fool on twitter said he was removed from the game. My apologizes.

Corky tied it up for Louisville on a 2-run shot, 6-6.

To cinreds21's credit, Danny Dorn and Willie Harris are pretty much exactly the same player.

The Blue Hoos are delayed in the fifth, down 3-1.

Not even close, Dorn has more power, and is a less versatile fielder.

*faints dead away*

~edit~ and then I continued reading. Way to bust the bubble. Grrrrr. I've been dying to see Dorn get a cup of joe.

Okay we have Gathright, Dorn and Harris as candidates.

Obispo only gives up one hit. Unfortunately, he also walked three. Four earnies for Wirfin. Bray pitched one inning and struck out the side. I guess he will be back with the big club shortly. Jordan Smith pitched the ninth and gave up two runs. Bats trail 8-6. Two hits apiece for Perez, Navarro and Miller (including a yak). Dorn hat three base hits.

Now is the time for Jocketty to work a deal for a solid honest-to-goodness cometent major league OFer. Not holding my breath though.

Pensacola still trails 3-1. Game is being delayed in the middle of the fifth. Aside from that second inning hiccup, Cingrani has been in control. 5IP 4H 3ER 0BB 6K 3HR.

Dragons fall 5-4 in the bottom of the 9th. Kind of a rough night for Leo Ryan Kemp, who has generally been good.

Dayton scored three in the top of the 7th to take a 4-3 lead. But Great Lakes came back with single runs in the 8th and 9th to win it in walk-off fashion. Two hits for Joe Terry and Juan Silva. Buckley added a double. Ryan Kemp pitch the final 1.2 innings and gave up five hits and two walks to take the loss.

Based on the box score I've seen, neither Gathright nor Harris played tonight. Dorn did play and got three hits. I guess it could be incorrect or incomplete.

Bill Bray had three Ks in his inning.

If the Reds make a temporary move, I hope it's Gathright. Citifield is a big ballpark. I don't think Jay Bruce should play CF at Citifield. If Stubbs and Heisey can't go, I'd like to see Negron and/or Gathright so the Reds can cover the outfield decently.

Also looks to me like Billy Bray will be back real soon. So we can expect a pitching move too.

Harris? Don't see why he needs to come up to the Reds, unless somebody else is hurt.

Louisville gets a walk and a single in the bottom of the 9th but fails to push across any runs. They tumble 8-6.

Mobile and Pensacola completed 4.5 innings before their game was suspended. Mobile leads 3-1.

The Bakersfield Blaze are down 1-0 through four innings. Jaren Matthews has the only Blaze hit, Hamilton is 0-2. Jamie Walczak has allowed a solo HR with 7 Ks.

First half North Champion Bakersfield Blaze!

They came back from 2-0 down to win 4-2. Niko Vasquez had a double and a 2-run HR, Hamilton an RBI single and his 75th steal. Pat Doyle and Brian Pearl combined for 5 scoreless innings. Pearl's 13th save was 5 outs with 4 Ks.

Perhaps most surprising, twitter reports of pre-game traffic:

@zewing - Just drove by Sam Lynn Ballpark, and get this - there's actually game traffic. Has to be a first. Blaze can clinch first half tonight ‪#bcali

Sorry, my tongue was stuck in my cheek for that one.
