Louisville (33-59) - Day off due to AAA ASG.

Pensacola - (12-7 SH) Trotting out Tim Crabbe against tonight. 7:15ET. Crabbe has been in a bit of a tailspin lately. His last eight outings have produced these numbers:35IP 38H 24ER 34BB 42K 6.17ERA.Crabbe is still striking out quite a few batters but walking, basically, one an inning will not cut it.

Bakersfield (7-12 SH) visits Stockton tonight. 10:05ET. Tanner Robles toes the rubber for the Blaze. Robles, recently promoted from Dayton, will be making just his second start this season for Bakersfield. His first start was quite good. 6IP 3H 0ER 2BB 6K. The "Post-Slidin' Billy" Era begins.

Dayton (7-11 SH) travels to Peoria. 8:00ET. Rhadames Quezada takes his turn on the mound. Quezada has been so-so this year. Hoping in the second half of the season he kicks it up a notch. Yorman Rodriguez was named Offensive Player of the Week in the Midwest League for July 2-8.

The Billings Mustangs (12-10) start an extended homestand against the Orem Owls. 9:05ET. Ismael Guillon is the starter tonight. Guillon has struck out 20 in just 15.2IP. His control has been good outside of one outing, as he continues to try to reestablish himself as a noteworthy prospect.

AZL Reds (3-12) host the AZL Giants. 10:00ET. TBD will throw for the Red Toddlers as they look for their first home win of the season.

Billy Hamilton struck out in his first at-bat as a 'Hoo. I knew they rushed him. :laugh:

No score after two in Chattanooga. Josh Fellhauer has the lone Wahoo hit. Tim Crabbe has given up three singles in two innings of play.

Pensacola has three hitters batting .000 in the lineup. Hamilton, Rhinehart and Crabbe. Meaningless factoid thrown in there. Slidin' Billy Ks again. No score after two and a half.

SB (Slidin' Billy, Stolen Base--you decide) grounded into a force out, which left him at first base, which put him at second base with his first Southern League swipe. Hoos trail 4-0.

Pensacola trailing 4-0. Another sub-par outing by Tim Crabbe. 5IP 8H 4ER 3BB 5K. Pensacola has three singles - Fellhauer, Greene and Means. Wirfin Obispo just allowed a solo shot to make it 5-0.

Quezada went four innings: 2 H, 1 R. Wes Mugarian has followed with two scoreless. Dayton trails 1-0 after six. Dragons have two hits. And yes, one of those belongs to Yorman.

Billy did reach base on a FC and steal his 1st/105th bag in the sixth. Didn't score though. He will lead off the ninth. My bad, he triples with two out in the eighth and drives in David Vidal for his first EBH and RBI.

Pitching change after the triple. Wonder if Billy can frazzle the new guy into balking him in. :D

Yorman Rodriguez grounded to the pitcher to end the top of the 7th. He was replaced by Jefry Sierra in the bottom of the 7th.

Feldhauer singles and Beau Millls coubles him to third to start the ninth, but Reinhart, Greene and Vidl follow with K's. The Wahoos fall 5-1.

Dragons trail 1-0 heading into the ninth. With two out Spencer Dickinson and Joe Terry with back-to-back singles. Jefry Sierra up. YRod came out of the game with a left leg injury per Dragons' radio. Terry steals second without a throw. Two runners in scoring position. Sierra grounds out on a nice play by the second baseman. Dragons fall 1-0. Five hits for Dayton. All singles. Dickinson two hits, Terry, Rodriguez and Buckley with one each.
Nice pitching for Dayton. Quezada goes four, giving up two hits. Unfortunately, one left the yard. Mugarian gives up two hits in three scoreless frames. Contreras pitched a scoreless 8th.

LaMarre K's stranding Billy at 3B. Hamilton is now 1-4 with a 3B, RBI, SB, 2 K's.
Nice AA debut. Looking forward to seeing this kid progress. Hope he gets a long look going into ST next season.

Billings underway and score two in the bottom of the 2nd. Setyh Mejias-Brean walked, Jeff Gelalich HBP, Wagner Gomes singled home SMB and Job Matthews singled home Gelalich. After a pitching change, Sammy Diaz was HBP to load them up, but Jesse Winker K'd to end the inning. 2-0 Stangs after 2.

Wandy Peralta on the Bump for the little Reds. Gives up one in the top of the 2nd. Humberto Valor reached on an error and stole his 4th base in the botom of the first but was stranded. 1-0 Little Bitty Giants.

The post-Billy era has officially begun in Bakersfield (now known as the smoulder). Devin Lohman with a one out walk in the first, but Donald Lutz hit into an inning-ending DP. No score after one.

Jonathan Reynoso singled with one out in the second and scored on a 2-base error by the SS on aball of the bat of Brayan Arias. Now 1-1.

Billy who? A flurry of singles--everybody in the lineup but Lohman and Duran has one already--produces 5 runs for Bakersfield in the second.

The Billings lead is now 4-0. Sammy Diaz is 2-2. Guillon has fanned 7 and walked just one in five innings.

Bakersfield rolls to an 8-1 victory. Hits galore, 13 in all. Travis Mattair had three, including his 12th home run. Selsky, Berset, Vasquez and Ewing two apiece. Tanner Robles went five strong, striking out 7 and walking two. Two California League starts for him now and he has yet to surrender a run. Andrew Brackman pitched two perfect innings.

As noted earlier, Billings triumphs 6-3. Guillon five strong. Carlos Ramos made things interesting when he entered the game in the sixth. He faced five batters, retiring none of them. He surrendered three hits, two walks and all three Orem runs. Alejandro Chacin put out that fire, working two perfect innings while striking out three. Sean Lucas pitched two perfect frames as well. Sammy Diaz, Jon Matthews and Wagner Gomez with a pair of safeties each. Gomez launched his first home run.

The Baby Reds sure are cute. But they don't seem to be able to play baseball very well. They fall to the Mini-Giants 6-5. Five M-G errors kept the game close. Wandy Peralta didn't walk a batter in 3.1 innings of work. That was the good news. He did, however, allow 9 hits and 6 runs, five of them earned. The bullpen came on and worked 5.2 shutout innings. Brayan Arias and Argenis combined for four of the Baby Reds 6 hits.

Tanner Rahier was back in the lineup.

In a bit of a slump now. Down to .200. The other high school RH hitter of note, Avain Rachal, a 22nd rounder, in the .360s. Both still in their infancy, but so far you'd have thought the results would have been reversed.

Rachal could be a sleeper in this draft class. Was listed as a pitcher on draft day, but has been looking good early on the INF.
