Louisville parlays a single (Phipps), a double (Rodriguez) and a walk (Soto) into nothing, thanks largely due to a GIDP (Navarro)

Pedro Villareal (4.12) walks the lead-off batter and that's where we stand in the bottom of the first.

Stalin Gerson (3.76), with what is becoming the norm with him, is having another fine outing. 5IP 4H 2R 1ER 1BB 4K. Nick O'Shea with a two-run double. Juan Perez and Yorman Rodriguez with singles. Kyle Waldrop has singled and walked. Dayton leads 3-2. Junior Arias has fallen below the Mendoza Line and committed his 30th error on the season.

California League is taking the night off in order to re-tally Slidin' Billy's stolen base total from earlier in the season. With the all-time record on the line, double-checking is a must.
Taco Tuesday tomorrow. Bring your own salsa.

The good news for Louisville is that Felix Perez and Cody Puckett both doubled in the second to plate one run. The bad news is that Pedro Villareal surrendered four in the first and one more so far in the second. Bottom of two the Bats trail 5-1. Pedro Villareal is sporting and ERA of well over five in his last ten Louisville starts.

Pedro Villareal with a rough outing. 1.2IP 8H 8R 7ER 3BB 0K. Josh Judy drags his 7+ ERA out of the bullpen here in the second.

Seems as though I jinxed Gerson. He faces four batters in the top of the sixth and retires none of them. He gave up four runs, all of them unearned. Single, single, error on a sacrifice and a walk ends Stalin's night. Carlos Gonzalez comes on and induces a double play while a run scores. He then throws two run-scoring wild pitches during the next at-bat. Dragons trail 5-3 moving into the bottom of the sixth.

That makes me sad.

Ismael Guillon looking good: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, ERA 2.44.

Billings is scoreless after three. Ridiculously, Mejias-Brean is 2-2 with a triple.

Louisville has 8 hits - five doubles - and three walks through 4.2 innings but have only scored three runs. Henry Rodriguez is 3 for 3 with two doubles. Felix Perez is 2 for 3 with two doubles. Josh Judy has struck out five in two and two-thirds innings of work. He has, however, allowed four hits, two walks and two runs. Gwinnett mauling the Bats 11-3.

Dayton scored three in the second but shut it down at that point, falling 6-3. Kyle Waldrop with a hit and two walks. Five other Dragons had a hit. Nick O'Shea had the only one for extra bases - a double.

No score in Billings as they play in the bottom of the fourth. Guillon, in four innings of work, has allowed two hits while walking none and striking out seven.

Not sure what some of these guys in Billings have to do to get a promotion. Guillon, Mejias-Brean, Winker, and arguably Vincej (in abbreviated time) have all dominated the league to the point where they have demonstrated they are more than ready for the next challenge in full season ball.

Not to mention, all of them with the exception of Winker would be very age appropriate for Dayton.

Julio Murillo started the season in the AZL where he posted the following line. .157/.173/.176/.350. He was bumped up the Billings and has continued not to hit. .083/.154/.167/.321.

Six innings of awesome will be all the Mustangs get out of Guillon tonight. Bennett Klimesh came on and pitched a scoreless 7th. Bruins outfield duo has slapped three singles tonight - two by Amaral, one by Gelalich.

Lefty bat. Can play CF. Might be worth a call-up when Rosters expand. Maybe he'll go all Quintin Berry. Heck, I'd call him up now.

I'd keep them in Billings and let them chase a championship. You could argue that that would enhance their development more than uprooting them to go play for a second-division club. You start to build a winning mentality right from the outset of their professional careers. Staying in the same league also allows them to see pitchers/hitters multiple times and start learning the cat-and-mouse game of making adjustments.

Agree. I see little benefit in a move to Dayton this late. If they are successful in winning the second half, Billings has to be the odds on favorite to win the Pioneer playoffs. That would extend the season and be a great experience for the players and the Billings fans as well.

It was a good three innings for Los Bambinos Rojos last night. But after that, hide the women and the children. The Babiest of Bears struck for 17 runs on 25 hits and sent LBR to their rooms without supper. Final was 17-7. The Baby Reds made five errors for good measure. Everyone in the lineup had at least one hit.
The infielders for the AZL Reds are having a tough time with the leather so far in 2012. Rahier has 15 miscues, Rachal has an even dozen and Peterson has 18. That is ugly.

Idaho Falls has two team nicknames. The Chukars and The Greybirds. Nice. Whichever one they went by last night came away with a 3-1 over the Billings Mustangs. The Mustangs outhit Idaho Falls 8 to 7 but came up on the short end of a 3-1 decision. Bennett Klimesh pitched a scoreless 7th but was roughed up in the 8th frame, allowing all three runs. Alejandro Cha-ching pitched an inning and two-thirds, striking out three.
